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

TBE-Best-of-2012-Remixes

 

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!

[LP / REMIX] Citizens! – HERE WE ARE [w/ “She Said” & “True Romance” (Gildas remix)]

you’ll taste heaven and you’ll taste hell, and those who doubt you will doubt themselves

♫ Citizins! – True Romance (Gildas remix)

  • Who: Tom, Lawrence, Mike, Martyn, Thom
  • What: Genre, like XX
  • Where: London, UK + Facebook
  • When: Buy debut album Here We Are now.
  • Why: “True Romance” is one of the great songs of the year. It stands strong on its own and lends itself beautifully to some stellar remixes, like the one above. If Citizens!’ worthwhile contributions stopped there it would still be something appreciated. Luckily for us they have more swinging indie dance rock for us. Here We Are is chock full of bendy baselines and hopping percussion, making a set of jams sure to start up your next party. Take “She Said” for example, I just hit play and already there are people knocking. And I don’t even have enough dip!
