Remix Party Playlist Vol. 66 – 6.20.2012 [Meiko, Bibio, DWNTWN, Tina Turner, and more…]

As some of you know I’ve been working on several other projects.  Mainly, Lights & Music Entertainment; a Music Blog / Concert & Event Production Series.   Does this mean I’m done with TBE?  Nope, but most of my time will be spent building content for my own blog.  Don’t worry, my Remix & Dubstep Roundups are alive and well over there.  In fact, they are about to be better than ever.

A continuation of my feature at The Burning Ear, Remix Roundups are a collection of the freshest remixes on the planet.  You can search high and low, in this world or another, but you won’t find a remix series this dope in this galaxy or the next –  For we are from only space.

Passion Pit – Take A Walk (Peking Duk Remix) / When it drops,… oohhh soo good.  Its head bobbing, its intoxicating and if you let it- completely mind numbing.  Pimp it.

David Guetta – Titanium (Mistereric Mix) / Imagine, a world of lightly crashing waves, sunny weather and gorgeous women rolling skating to the rhythm.  Thats what this song means to me.  Its got mad vibes.  Jump in.

[VIDEO & MP3] Mark Foster, A-Trak, and Kimbra – “Warrior” (Official Video)

I’m not quite sure what to think here.  On one hand we have a super fun pop anthem, but on the other… I feel a bit strange when songs are made out of marketing schemes.  Thats taking the love out of the music right?  I don’t know, when its all said and done the collaboration sounds like it was made in pop heaven.  You’ve got all the pieces- Foster the People’s fun synth-pop catchiness, A-Trak’s uber production talent, and Kimbra’s sexy voice.  I guess props to Converse for putting this together?  Expect this to be a huge mainstream radio hit this summer.

♫ Mark Foster + A-Trak + Kimbra – Warrior

Remix Party Playlist Vol. 62 – 3.30.2012 [Housse De Racket, Foo Fighters, Martin Solveig, The Shoes, and more…]

Its Friday and this is how we do it.  Don’t know about you, but I just got my coffee game on and Im feeling that caffeine high right about now.  Powered right through that 2:30 wall like it was blue cotton-candy.  And I love that shite.  Just marf’n on it.  Anyway, enough of this noise.  Lets be honest, you’re here for the chuneage.

♫ Foster The People – Don’t Stop (Color On The Walls) (Futurecop! Remix) / Futurecop! are back to making my body move in diabolical fashion…  So uncontrollable.

♫ Housse De Racket – Chateau (Gemini Club Remix) / We at TBE have always been fans of Gemini Club, but they have been on a glitchy roll lately.  Maybe it has something to do with playing our SXSW showcase… Read more

Brandon’s TBE Digest 30 – [11.3.2011] New Jams, Remixes, & Covers!

Artwork by Jacob Youngblood Ziegler

Brandon’s TBE Digest is a place where I gather up all the recent jams that are worth a listen (or 10) but don’t necessarily need their own post. Here you will find new tracks by known bands, remixes, covers, and even mashups if they are interesting. My favorites of the lot are in bold.

A big batch of goodies this time round. Plus, since it’s a nice round number Jacob Youngblood Ziegler hooked us up with a fancy Anniversary Edition of the TBE Digest art. Stare at it in awe as you listen.

NEW RELEVENT JAMS

♫ Phantogram – Don’t Move / Phantogram return with the Nightlife EP and this is a great sign of the continued sexiness these two are working with.

♫ Body Language – Seeds of Sight / More spaced out sex funk from one of Brooklyn’s finest.

♫ Vacationer – Gone  While not nearly as good as previous track “Trip” this shows good promise of more magic to come from this Body Language collaborator.

REMIXES

♫ Katie Herzig – Free My Mind (RAC Remix) / Like I said yesterday, there is no Read more

♫ Boys Noize – Arcade Robot (Sound Remedy Remix) / A mix that would have vibed perfectly with the Drive Soundtrack.  Its too late for that,.. and that’s a shame.

♫ Justice – Helix (Don Diablo Remix) / Noisemaker Don Diablo is back with a fiesty remix.  He is also about to blow Asia/Australia up on his upcoming tour.  For info check out his Facebook.

Dubstep Roundup Vol. 24 – 10.19.2011 [Silver Medallion, Calvin Harris, Feed Me, Britney Spears and more…]

Its always a special occasion when we drop a sick-nasty-wobbly-wobblefest on our TBE peeps.  Super-obvi today will be no exception.  Rest assured, your worldwide dub dealer has got your fix…  So, get that change of cloths and that extra pair of undies ready.  The BASS is back.

I figured this picture fit in nicely with Halloween steadily approaching.  Just don’t stare too long.  Side note: I like my bass swollen, not my women.

♫ Fytch, Captain Crunch, Carmen Forbes – Raindrops / No explanation required for this level of choonage.

♫ Silver Medallion – All I Ask (Lazy Ants & Norihito Ogawa Remix) / Bass infused filth may send you into wet-robot convulsions.  I once new a wet-robot, his name was Steve.

Remix Roundup Vol. 50 – 9.1.2011 [Arcade Fire, Modest Mouse, Theophilus London, Active Child, and more… ]

And we’re off. After far too long a break and a road trip from hell, I’m back. Not just in Washington state, but I’m here to blow those sweet little eardrums out.

It’s hard to believe its been a year since Scott and I joined Brandon and took over the remix responsibilities for TBE. Yet here we are a year later, a year wiser, 360 days more disinguished and more handsome than ever.

So, let’s do this.

Remix Roundup Vol. 50.

Keep it Nurdy

♫ Jason Derulo – Don’t Wanna Go Home (SmarterChild Remix) / SmarterChild gave us his amazing remix of City and Colour’s “Fragile Bird” a few weeks back under his other production name Richard Powda’.  This time he drops a floor pleaser sure to melt dance floors around the world.  Fan his Facebook.

♫ Battlekat – Into The Forest (DREAMTRAK DIAMOND SOUND Remix) / Its not often enough we get DDS mixes, but it apears to be worth the wait.  The synth build around the 2:40 mark is genius.  Raise that glass and cheers to the heavens. Read more
