[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!

[REMIX] Atlas Genius – “Back Seat (Goldroom Remix)”

i’ll sell you a feeling, i’ll sell you a meaning

♫ Atlas Genius – Back Seat (Goldroom Remix)

Since Australia’s Atlas Genius will be coming to Los Angeles on Debember 11th, our hometown hero Goldroom rolled out the welcome mat with this big summery remix of “Back Seat.” Here’s to hoping they meet here over some drinks and get their collaboratin’ on.

[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

Remix Party Playlist Vol. 66 – 6.20.2012 [Meiko, Bibio, DWNTWN, Tina Turner, and more…]

As some of you know I’ve been working on several other projects.  Mainly, Lights & Music Entertainment; a Music Blog / Concert & Event Production Series.   Does this mean I’m done with TBE?  Nope, but most of my time will be spent building content for my own blog.  Don’t worry, my Remix & Dubstep Roundups are alive and well over there.  In fact, they are about to be better than ever.

A continuation of my feature at The Burning Ear, Remix Roundups are a collection of the freshest remixes on the planet.  You can search high and low, in this world or another, but you won’t find a remix series this dope in this galaxy or the next –  For we are from only space.

Passion Pit – Take A Walk (Peking Duk Remix) / When it drops,… oohhh soo good.  Its head bobbing, its intoxicating and if you let it- completely mind numbing.  Pimp it.

David Guetta – Titanium (Mistereric Mix) / Imagine, a world of lightly crashing waves, sunny weather and gorgeous women rolling skating to the rhythm.  Thats what this song means to me.  Its got mad vibes.  Jump in.

[MP3] Goldroom – “Fifteen” ft. Chela

floating through the slipstream

♫ Goldroom – Fifteen (ft Chela)

  • Who: Josh Legg
  • What: “Laid back island disco,” like Viceroy, Tanlines, St. Lucia,
  • Where: Los Angeles, CA + Facebook
  • When: 2011’s Angeles EP is out now.
  • Why: It was this month last year that Goldroom graced us with “Morgans’ Bay,” a song that would become one of the summer’s best relaxation anthems. After some stellar remix work he is back with another original that is ready to ease our way into Summer living.

[REMIX] Goldroom – Angeles (Le Youth Remix)

don’t wanna go home

♫ Goldroom – Angeles (Le Youth Remix)

We all know that LA’s Goldroom is a master of sunset-lit coastal grooves so no surprise that his new ode to his city is a jam. Le Youth’s remix tones down the bongos and kicks up the funk for a solid slice of laid back fun.

Remix Party Playlist Vol. 63 – 4.14.2012 [Lily Allen, Morning Parade, Phil Collins, Madeon and more…]

Because sometimes Saturday is a good day for a fresh batch of remixes.

I’m back to butter up your eardrums with some radicool (yes, I know radicool isn’t a real word, but in my vocabulary- it is) jams.  As you know, our cold lockers are packed to the gills with sonic tunes and electronic robots.  We are quickly approaching the night, and frankly the time to start getting saucy, nurdy, weird, (insert adjective here) etc.   So look, right now I’m envisioning what is to be the first global cyber dance party ever… and guess what?  You’re all invited.  I’ve got the jams, you’ve got the moves, so lets do this.

Shout out to all the followers from South Africa and around the world.  We love hearing from you guys.
