NEW RELEVENT JAMS

♫ J. Cole – Work Out / Another smooth jam from J. Cole. I like this guy’s flavor.

♫ Portugal, The Man – Got It All (This Can’t Be Living Now) / New Portugal! Not my favorite of their tracks but their stuff is generally on a different level anyway.

♫ Hercules & Love Affair – Painted Eyes (Radio Edit) / I’ve heard a few of the new Hercules tracks and while they are no “Blind” this one definitely has Read more

Joel & Scott’s Top 50 Remixes of 2010

Welcome back party peeps.  We, Joel & Scott are proud to bring you our Top 50 Remixes of 2010.

Totally wish we could think of some rad shite to introduce this wicked cool Top 50 list with, but we’re both having some serious writers block here.  Typically in this situation we would just drink or get some sort of major caffeine stimulation (often both).  Not gonna lie, we enjoyed the hell out of our super strong energy/alcoholic beverages, but thanks to Central Washington University students the shite is outlawed.  Please, we’d love to hear your side of the story.   Anyway,… by now if you are a TBE follower you know that we are two dudes (Joel & Scott) originally from Seattle that just love to get Nurdy’ and melt our faces on that dirty d-floor.   And yeah, remixes to us are what platinum haired Bunnies are to Hugh Hefner.

Lastly, you might think its a little late for a “Best of List”, but that was a deliberate move on our part.  We at TBE don’t believe in a  “Best of List” before the New Year and we really wanted to take our time.  2010 was an incredible year for DJs and remix artists around the world.  Our top two remixes this year may very well be two of our top remixes of all time.  Its amazing to see the support DJs are now getting around the globe.  Don’t forget that they’re the ones that keep us dancing.

Keep dancing all, and if any of the following songs change your life YOU’RE WELCOME.  (Don’t forget to check out our Top 10 Dubstep Remixes of 2010)

♫ Gemini Club – Ghost (Midnight Conspiracy Remix) / If you have been following our roundups at all, you know we fancy ourselves some Midnight Conspiracy.  We can only imagine what kind of carnage would be left behind after one of their DJ sets.

♫ Housse De Racket – Oh Yeah! (Walter Sobcek Remix) / We feel like we should be in a spaceship to a far away land getting lost in this jam.  Walter Sobcek and the French know their way around electronic music.

Remix Roundup Vol. 24 – 7.21.10 [Sleigh Bells, Don Diablo, Sia, The Drums, Brahms, The National, Local Natives,…]

Did someone say remixes!?!? Oh, no, that was just the sound of my sweat hitting the laptop, which along with the clackity of the keyboard, sounded like morse code for “roundup.” Shit, I may be losing it in this heat…

♫ Sleigh Bells – A/B Machines (French Horn Rebellion Remix) / I get a little bummed out every time I hear this but that is only cause French Horn Rebellion will be opening for Cut Copy this Saturday IN WARSAW but I will be on vacation. How’s that for shitty luck? Well, my trip is going to be pretty epic in it’s own right, a lot like this remix, so I can’t really complain. Now get dirty with this glitch-heavy take on the Sleigh Bells shredder!

♫ Focus – Hocus Pocus (Buffetlibre Remix) / Buffetlibre are back and Read more

Remix Roundup Vol. 20 – 4.16.10 [Bloc Party, Tegan & Sara, Neon Indian, Brahms…]

Some real gems up in here. A couple ass-shakers, mood setters, and a trifecta of hip-hop sampling mashups to round things out. Get in!

♫ Marmaduke Duke – Kid Gloves (Electrically Charged Boy remix) / It’s this remix that inspired me to track down Marmaduke Duke’s jams and if you’re listening then you know why. I can’t stop grooving to Read more

Remix Roundup Vol. 19 / 4.2.10 / [RAC, Penguin Prison, Neon Trees, Hot Chip …]

You ask, you receive. Remixes are back with more reading for your pleasure! Crank that volume knob and dive in!

♫ Penguin Prison – Worse It Gets (RAC Mix) / Damn. Jams don’t get much fresher than this. I haven’t heard the original yet but I couldn’t wait another moment to share this slice of audio perfection. Penguin Prison and RAC are both firing on all cylinders on this buttery smooth funk fest. This jam could cure depression if administered in daily doses. For reals.

♫ Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes – Home (RAC Mix) / RAC doing his magic on this recent modern classic of a love song. This kind of remix is a perfect example of why I love RAC so much. the dude can pack on the beats and make Read more

The 25 Best Songs of 2009… Since Then / July-Dec.

Here is my list of the best songs of the second half of 2009. Be sure to read the first half’s list here and treat the two posts as a tag team of epic jams.

Wow, what a year. TBE is a month shy of it’s first birthday and now I have to wrap it’s whole existence into a short list? Tough times. Well, since objectivity is a myth, I am gonna keep my Best 20.9 Songs Of 2009 So Far list as the gold standard for my pre-July opinions and instead focus on the year’s latter half here. Why let time revise my previous favorites when the same fate will never befall these tracks? After all, it’s just a calendar. Anyway, I hope this list serves as a reminder of some forgotten jams or, if you are new to TBE, introduce you a new favorite jam. Whoever you are, and however you ended up here (Hi freeloaders!), may you enjoy the shit out of your time here (and there).

Remix Roundup Vol. 12 • 11-6-09

JerseyCarousel

Do I even need to write intros to these things anymore? I’m trying to keep these things leaner and meaner so let’s get on with the show!

♫ Prairie Cartel – Cracktown (Hey Champ Remix) / Umm, did you read who is on this track? Yeah, its fresh, but you knew that already. Bust out the strobe light and get freaky. [original post / more HC]

♫ Fool’s Gold – Surprise Hotel (Mad Decent’s Toadally Krossed Out Remix) / Toad croaking! Yes! Leave it up to Mad Decent (Diplo from Major Lazer, as far as I know) to come up with that stroke of brilliance. [original post]

♫ Major Lazer – Jump Up (Laza Beam Remix) / Speaking of the Major, how’s this jam for a “Jump Up” remix. Nothing mindblowing but it’s hard to mess up the banger-ocity on this track.  [original post]

♫ Mike Posner – Cooler Than Me (Gigamesh Remix – FINAL Version) / Mike Posner is back with a new mixtape full of his stoner hip-hop jams. There is an early version of this Gigamesh remix on it but ignore that business cause this is the version that you are supposed to be loving. If you are listening then you know why. [original post / more Gigamesh]

♫ Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix) / It’s A-Trak on the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, no surprise it’s a goodie. Better late than never.

♫ Phoenix – Armistice (YACHT Remix) / My favorite new remixers thrown down on this Phoenix jam (from their Wolfgang remix album.) If only they could make their own jams this listenable. [more Phoenix / YACHT]

♫ Passion Pit – Little Secrets (Hey Champ Remix) / Hey Champ put this one through the discofier for a jam worth of your best head bobbing, finger snapping, dance moves.  [more PP / HC]

♫ Just Jack – Doctor Doctor (Fred Falke Remix) / Fred Falke mellows this jam right out, turning it into one of those walking-home-at-twilight jams. [original post / more FF]

♫ Sean Bones – Dancehall (Bodega Girls Remix) / This one gets a bit repetitive but I’ve also found myself zoning out to it.  [original post / more BG]

♫ The Hood Internet – Just A Friendomania (Biz Markie vs Phoenix vs Classixx) / The Hood Internet are back again with this decade-mixing mashup that is inspired, to say the least. [more HI]
