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.

REMIXES

FREE ENERGY, oh FREE ENERGY, you are a DREAM to me in this gloomy CITY

free-energy

i wanna believe but i’m out of control

♫ Free Energy – Free Energy

When Free Energy’s “Dream City” (below) hit the scene back in May I was intrigued but not sold. “Something In Common” followed in September and quickly became a steering-wheel-drumming favorite, but somehow I felt I had missed the boat on writing about the Philadelphia quintet. Then I saw and heard their video for “Free Energy” (above) and was sold/on board/in/stoked. The three tracks together are an aural ménage à trois that gets me super pumped for their 2010 LP slated through James Murphy’s DFA (he produced “Dream City”). The horns, the lyrics, the energy, the cowbell; it’s impossible to not get happy. Sam over at Balloon Of The Mind likens them to Girls, but I’m feeling way more fun and good times coming from these guys, and with none of the mopey grumblings.

♫  Free Energy – Dream City

Of the five members, Scott Wells and Paul Sprangers used to be in the band Hockey Night. A search through my iTunes dug up a few overlooked jams and since then I have been listening to “Rebel Fever” on repeat. There are so many great things happening here. The dual guitars just rip it up over the bouncy vocals and propulsive rhythm section. Throw this whole post on your next driving mix-tape and you wont regret it.

BONUS:  ♫ Hockey Night – Rebel Fever (Who We Are)
