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.

♫ 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

[PREMIER] Gemini Club – “Can’t Believe You Said That”

Gemini Club are back showing more versatility than ever.  Throwing down some glitchy vibes on what is already a terrifically catchy indie song.  The more I listen to them, they remind me of Monarchy whos’s juxtaposed to Penguin prison or maybe Bag Raiders.  Yeah, thats it Bag Raiders.  Enough with this perpetual comparison pastime.  Lets get to enjoying this tune.

You can catch Gemini Club’s sweet jams at our SXSW Showcase Friday, March 16th.  Its going to be madness.

[MP3] Gemini Club – “By Surprise”

forget the absence it’s the patience i loathe

♫ Gemini Club – By Surprise

  • Who: Dan, Tom, and Gordon.
  • What: Self-described “indie electronica”, like Penguin Prison & Capital Cities
  • Where: Chicago, IL + Facebook / Soundcloud
  • When: Here We Sit out soon
  • Why: Yesterday we had a post that stemmed from a recommendation from another music artist. Today we have music that stemmed from a reader suggestion on the post that stemmed from an artist recommendation. It’s a Music-ception. Goodness! Anyway, waking up to this jam today is the best thing that’s happened in a groggy haze in quite some time. Gemini Club knows how to make it hit; and hit it does.

Remix Roundup Vol. 52 – 9.20.2011 [Midnight Conspiracy, Edwin van Cleef, MEN, Hearts Revolution, and more…]

Welcome back.  I understand its Tuesday… In case you missed last week, I outlined my change in posting philosophy.  In fact we’re setting a new TBE record for the shortest time between Remix Roundups.  Thats right, you’re now apart of some very dramatic world history.  Go ahead and tell your friends about it.  Does this new philosophy always mean I will be posting this often?  Not always, but sometimes.  Also, check out the contest we’re running for tickets to live shows in your city (you’ve got options).

So, without further adieu, turn your speaker boxes up and jam the (F) out.  PEACE.

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.
