Remix Roundup 77 – [Part 2] – Sacre, Spice Girls, Clairo, Hayden James

Hey all, we decided to keep things going w/ our re-introduction to the “Remix Roundup”. While we don’t have any official expectations or a set schedule, I’m going to see if I can keep these coming for you…. I’ve still got a fair amount of older and newer remixes backlogged, so I’ll try my best to mix them both in. Also, if you guys are interested, I’m starting a Spotify “Best Remixes” playlist you can follow.  Keep in mind that most remixes never make it to Spotify and iTunes :(

Remix Roundup 76 – [Part 1.] – Whethan, Emilia Ali, DUAN, and Bayonne!

I’m back kids. In case y’all don’t remember me (Joel), I used to run these here Remix Roundups. I won’t bore you with my life story, but lot has happened since then… I started the nationwide party “Dance Yourself Clean“, a record label “Lights & Music Collective“, and a music project w/ a couple friends called “Back Talk” (see remix in part 2). That’s great and all, but we all know you’re here for the music, so lets get to it. Below are a gaggle of remixes I’ve been listening to over the past six months or so. Part 1 of 2.

[PLAYLIST] The Best REMIXES of 2012 – Part 2 (July-Dec)



Man oh man. Could we be in a better world for fun remixes of great songs? Some of the old guard has been slacking in quality lately (RAC, where you at?) but new talent is cropping up in droves. Cyril Hahn practically made his name from that Destiny’s Child remix. Noah Hyde is on the map with amazing work. Manu el Chino nabs his second spot of 2012. Too many great tracks. Get on it for the weekend and check out all the bands and remixers you may have missed through the years. And especially listen to that Years & Years remix. What a genre flip. Mmmm…..

Be sure to catch all the 2012 “BEST OF” lists!

[PLAYLIST] The Best Party Songs of 2012


2012 was a fantastic year for party songs. It seems that music is having more fun than ever and I couldn’t be happier to share it with you all.

[VIDEO/REMIX] Van She – “Jamaica” + (Unicorn Kid remix)

You’ve heard the Theme Park song by the same name, you’ve heard its Gigamesh remix,you’ve even heard the band named Jamaica. Now it’s time to strap your eyeballs in and just go there already. Join the Aussies in Van She as they frolick sbout the country making us all wish we were in a band so we could write a song called “Rocket Ship Made of Candy” just to film a literal video for it.

Now wrap your feeble brain around this massive club edit of this jam and try not to float away as you fist bump into another dimension.

♫ Van She – Jamaica (Unicorn Kid Remix)

[REMIX] Theme Park – “Jamaica” (Gigamesh Remix)

we can let it go

♫ Theme Park – Jamaica (Gigamesh Remix)

Theme Park? Gigamesh? It’s a match made in heaven. The kind of song that makes me want to invest in expensive barware and throw cocktail parties. People will mix, mingle and at least one person will get casually slapped on the butt as they walk by.

[REMIX] Ladyhawke – Sunday Drive (Gigamesh Remix)/(Scissor Sisters Remix)

waiting for the rain to behave so you come around

♫ Ladyhawke – Sunday Drive (Gigamesh Remix)

Don’t mind me, I’m just sitting here chilling, waiting for the Ladyhawke album to come out. Oh, whats that? TWO remixes of “Sunday Drive” to keep me occupied until then? Why yes. Thank you.
