Remix Roundup Vol. 71 – THE RETURN! PART 1

I know, I know. It’s been too long. The Remix Roundups are back and I guarantee they will be more fun then ever. Here is Vol 71 for your weekend enjoyment and I already have Vol 72 coming together. Both of them are a kind of “house cleaning” of all the amazing remixes of 2013 that never got Roundup love. They will be followed by the Best Remixes of 2013 post. Thats a lot of music. Drink a lot of water and don’t forget to stretch.

Oh, and there are a few jams included in the ZIP below that aren’t on Soundcloud anymore so make sure you grab that…

[MP3] French Horn Rebellion – “Caaalifornia (The Soundmen Remix)”

The Soundmen have been behind a lot of my favorite remixes of the past 4 years and this take on recent fave “Caaalifornia” shows exactly why. They aren’t afraid to take a track in a totally weird direction. This is the kind of script-flipping that made RAC great back in the day. Push the envelope. Take me somewhere new. I will follow.

[MP3] French Horn Rebellion – “Caaalifornia” Feat. Ghost Beach

Two of New York’s finest get together for a sweet song about the other coast and damn it’s spot on. They may live in the land of sweaty subways and snowy winters but they captured the spirit of the best coast just right. Feel free to do a whole album, guys.

[REMIX] Ghost Beach – Too Young (Penguin Prison Remix)

Ghost Beach - Too Young (Penguin Prison Remix)oh oh oh, don’t you throw it away

“Too Young” has already become a bit of a modern classic around TBE HQ so its great to get a refreshed mix from the always on point Penguin Prison. Put both in this weekend’s party mix and slap anyone who objects when they come on back-to-back!

Remix Roundup Vol. 69 – Approx. Jan 2013

100-bolt-paddedDamn, these have been rocking my iTunes for months now but laziness/selfishness has kept them from being wrapped and gifted for your ears. No time to talk. Get down to the rock.

[LIVE] Carousel, Ghost Beach + Goldroom, Two Door Cinema Club DJ sets @ The Echoplex 10.25.12

♫ Ghost Beach – Tear Us Apart

Carousel opened up the night (below) and brought an awesome performance. They rocked the house. However, the softer nature of their jams do not lend themselves to face melting and thats exactly what Ghost Beach did when they took the stage (above). Having last seen them at the TBE SXSW showcases where technical difficulties were many but they still raged through it was fantastic to see them with all cylinders firing and working up a sweat for all in the room. New jam “Tear Us Apart” was a highlight with its Read more

LETS DO A SUMMER MIXTAPE with [RAC, Adventure Club, Goldroom, Viceroy, DWNTWN, Ghost Beach, Cry Wolf and Lights & Music]

When I first started the blog feature on Lights & Music last month, this mixtape was the first idea that I put into action.  Wikipedia, in-short describes mixtapes as usually reflecting the musical tastes of its compiler, a conceptual mix of songs linked by a theme or mood tailored to the tape’s intended recipient.  Yeah sure, we’ve all made mixtapes before.  But, what happens when you get a bunch of artists and bloggers to make a mixtape with the intended recipient being you?  Thats what I wanted to find out.  The concept is simple, yet I hadn’t really seen it anywhere else.

Everyone was given two selections.  They could either choose two tracks defining their summer so far in 2012 or one new and one all-time summer favorite.  Sounds simple enough in theory, but narrowing down your favorite jams to fit that criteria was tough.  That said, this was a fun project and I intend on making this a annual event.

Without further ado, please enjoy and share with others. Read more
