Woah, so things got a bit out of control with this Digest, there are just a lot of new jams coming out and it’s tough to keep track of them all.

The 29 Best Remixes of 2009

I don’t know about you but 2009 was the year I fell in live with remixes. Starting TBE opened up my world to so many amazing reinterpretations of both great and not so great songs. Having always been more of a cover song guy this was new territory for me but I dove in headfirst and have been enjoying the ride so far. Good music is a personal thing and messing with great music is even more so. This is very much a subjective list and is based on nothing besides how much I love and respect the work done. Oh, and the numbering system is pretty much bullshit but I had to put them in some kind of order. Anyway, enjoy. I certainly have.

THE COOL KIDS X HEY CHAMP = something we WE ARE digging. CHAMPIONS of remixing can do that to us.

coolkids-champions

both heels clickin’ like they runnin’ in the same race

♫ The Cool Kids x Hey Champ – (We Are) Champions

The Cool Kids make hip-hop, and they exist in the world. I’m fine with that. I’m just not that into their stuff. Bring Hey Champ into the mix and now you have my attention. Apparently “Champions” is a track by The Cool Kids that I have never heard before and I’m guessing Hey Champ found it while Googling themselves and decided to make it awesome. It worked. They are champions. Woo. This jam won’t blow you out of your seat but it will make you sink into it a littler cooler and a little sexier. As long as you resist that urge to pop your collar.

Remix Roundup Vol. 12 • 11-6-09

JerseyCarousel

Do I even need to write intros to these things anymore? I’m trying to keep these things leaner and meaner so let’s get on with the show!

♫ Prairie Cartel – Cracktown (Hey Champ Remix) / Umm, did you read who is on this track? Yeah, its fresh, but you knew that already. Bust out the strobe light and get freaky. [original post / more HC]

♫ Fool’s Gold – Surprise Hotel (Mad Decent’s Toadally Krossed Out Remix) / Toad croaking! Yes! Leave it up to Mad Decent (Diplo from Major Lazer, as far as I know) to come up with that stroke of brilliance. [original post]

♫ Major Lazer – Jump Up (Laza Beam Remix) / Speaking of the Major, how’s this jam for a “Jump Up” remix. Nothing mindblowing but it’s hard to mess up the banger-ocity on this track.  [original post]

♫ Mike Posner – Cooler Than Me (Gigamesh Remix – FINAL Version) / Mike Posner is back with a new mixtape full of his stoner hip-hop jams. There is an early version of this Gigamesh remix on it but ignore that business cause this is the version that you are supposed to be loving. If you are listening then you know why. [original post / more Gigamesh]

♫ Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix) / It’s A-Trak on the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, no surprise it’s a goodie. Better late than never.

♫ Phoenix – Armistice (YACHT Remix) / My favorite new remixers thrown down on this Phoenix jam (from their Wolfgang remix album.) If only they could make their own jams this listenable. [more Phoenix / YACHT]

♫ Passion Pit – Little Secrets (Hey Champ Remix) / Hey Champ put this one through the discofier for a jam worth of your best head bobbing, finger snapping, dance moves.  [more PP / HC]

♫ Just Jack – Doctor Doctor (Fred Falke Remix) / Fred Falke mellows this jam right out, turning it into one of those walking-home-at-twilight jams. [original post / more FF]

♫ Sean Bones – Dancehall (Bodega Girls Remix) / This one gets a bit repetitive but I’ve also found myself zoning out to it.  [original post / more BG]

♫ The Hood Internet – Just A Friendomania (Biz Markie vs Phoenix vs Classixx) / The Hood Internet are back again with this decade-mixing mashup that is inspired, to say the least. [more HI]

Remix Roundup /// Vol. 10 – Good vs. Bad

VS.You know what sucks? Being underwear-bound at your laptop because your face-hair trimmer lost charge midway through it’s duty so you cant shower or go out. You know what is great? Remixes and beer! What happens when you put them all together?

Remix Roundup /// Vol. 8 – Reflect & Unwind

I can’t believe it’s August already. I can’t believe TBE is almost 6 months old. I can’t believe this is the 8th roundup of remixes. I can’t believe you are still reading this. OK, now I really can’t believe it. I cant. Seriously, nothing you say can make me believe you are still reading this. It’s called belief dude, it’s personal, I don’t have to explain or justify it. I mean, yeah, I guess if I saw you reading it I would ‘believe’ but that’s not even the point. The point is that there are so many fresh remixes down there and you are still reading this garbage. Some people, man, some people.
