Acid Girls and Frankmusik demand that we Wake Up!

Acid Girls

i look outside my eyes and all i see is rain

♫ Acid Girls w/ Frankmusik – Wake Up

Need a little pep in your Thursday? Yeah me too. Luckily Los Angeles DJ duo Acid Girls teamed up with Frankmusik for this mindless dance jam. If you dig Frankmusik’s fun songs then you will likely appreciate this. Pounding bass and and high pitched vocals to motivate you to either dance or at least get up to turn it off.

Frankmusik’s ‘Complete Me’ a classic? Time Will Tell… or not.

are you strong enough this time to give me one last try?

♫ Frankmusik – Gotta Boyfriend

Ever since I stumbled across the video for “3 Little Words” and discovered the spazz-pop of Frankmusik (Vincent Turner to his mother) I have been looking forward to his debut LP. Over the past 9 months I have had a steady stream of jams to keep me satisfied. The Frankisum EP gave me the awesome “Gotta Boyfriend” and great “Confusion Girl.” Youtube searches turned my on to “In Step” and it’s amazing hula-hoop  and cotton panties video (featured on TBE TV for a bit). “Better Off As 2” was introduced through it’s various remixes. So Complete Me finally came out this month and I haven’t been particularly drawn to it. Don’t get me wrong, there are a quite a few great tracks. It’s just that they are the ones I already mentioned above! It’s not until track 5 that I get a song I don’t know and it’s a damn ballad. The first of 5 damn ballads! FIVE! What the hell is this? I want my Frankmusik fast and crazy, not smoothed and spacey. I get that you have feeeelings, just figure out how to make them danceable! The second half of the album falls apart more, especially with the cringe inducing 1-2 punch of the album’s title track and Vacant Heart. Luckily track 12 brings some heat in the form of FM’s new single “Time Will Tell.”

♫ Frankmusik – Time Will Tell

It’s a hyped up dancefloor rampage that makes my shoulders dip as I sit here writing this. Falling into the ‘winners’ column, it puts Complete Me at about half full of great tracks. I guess my beef is that I had most of them already, although it should be noted that the album version of previous single’s are different mixes (Most significant in “Confusion Girl” and “3 Little Words”). Yeah, and why is that? Why mess with a track that I am already digging, Frankie? Did you really make it better? And what is up with your album art? The beauty that graces your eyes above is not what is actually attached to the CD. This is. Yeah, exactly. Which one do you prefer looking at: flower petal ghost lady with a naked boob or Frankmusik’s shaved noggin and puppy dog eyes? Don’t even get me started on his current MySpace photo. Gives me shivers. Ok, enough! So Vincent may be a bit self indulgent but hey, this is his first album. I’ll cut him some slack. At the end of the day Complete Me is a good listen (if you haven’t heard most of the tracks already). Despite a few trips to the skip button, there is enough fun to keep you hyped for the weekend.

Remix Roundup /// Vol. 4

Here at TBE I like to focus on new artists we are about to love and new tracks by artists we already love. BUT! Sometimes a remix comes along that just hast to be shared (danced to), and even more often a dozen remixes come along, hence the Remix Roundup. This week has some fantastic remixers (Designer Drugs, Don Diablo, Bloodshy & Avant, etc) remixing some TBE faves (La Roux, Basement Jaxx, Frankmusik, etc.). Crank the volume, clear the dance floor and download away!

Just Burn It! The Upbeat Beatdown mix

Download the Upbeat Beatdown mix.

I know it’s been a while since the last Just Burn It! mix but you may have noticed all the changes to the site instead. Well as site tweaking settles down I’ll be making more mixes for y’all. Lets start with this one!

As spring arrives there are often days that turn out to be less warm than we would have hoped. I often find these days to be the most depressing. At least in winter you know what to expect but during these transitional times it can be tough. Hope is often higher than the mercury. On these depressing days it helps to have a soundtrack to pick you back up, and what’s better than a solid hour of upbeat music! There are dance-offs, face-offs, walk-offs and now an upbeat-off! Wait, that doesn’t sound right. Anyway, here are 19 tracks that are guaranteed to get you amped! From hand-claps to fist-pumps, it’s 60 minutes of pure upbeat psyched motivation! Make it your soundtrack to spring cleaning! Your place has kinda been looking like a dump…

Track list after the dump. I mean jump.
