25 – â™«Â Britney Spears – Till The World Ends (DOCTOR ROSEN ROSEN Remix)Â / This isn’t so much “Till The World Ends” but more “After The World Ended.” The Britney comeback party starter gets a post-apocalyptic haunted castle treatment with the “oooh oooh”s providing a completely different effect..
24 – â™«Â Miami Horror – Holidays (Butcher Blades Recreational Disaster Remix)Â / Best name for a remix.

24 – â™«Â The Weeknd â€“ House Of Balloons/Glass Table GirlsÂ / Dark, dirty, and not for public consumption. But damn if I can’t get enough.
23 – â™«Â Motopony – King of DiamondsÂ / Should be higher up on the list but with another Motopony track below I am basically sneaking this track in. An amazing song.

â™« James Blake – Limit To Your Love (Feist cover) (album version)
If you are coincidentally named the same a tennis star then maybe just use a different moniker for your music? Ok, no. Fine. So 21 year old James Blake was all up in everyone’s grill over the past year with a few much-creamed-over EPs that I just could never get into. And I tried. I gave this guy more second chances than anyone else since I tried getting into Animal Collective 2 years ago (Failed). So then James Blake’s unimaginatively titled album,Â James Blake, came out and I figured I would give it a spin, you know, out of journalisticÂ curiosity. That’s when the surprising part happened. I didn’t reach for the skip button, even once.Â I immediately played it a second time. I starred a few tracks. It was looking like I actually liked it. A few weeks later and the same result. Blake’s blog-dominating Feist cover “Limit To Your Love” finally seemed to make sense within the album. Sparse piano and vulnerable vocals giving way to just enough dubstep wobble to give the track ambience but without making me cringe.
The real gem, however, is second single “Wilhelm Scream.” (This guy is the hottest thing since sliced bread so I’m not tempting fate with a download, sorry) A simple beat, a simple refrain, but a not so simple result. This song has serious weight, captivating my ears every time I hear it. A lot of people seem to be up in arms over Blake and what he represents to music, dubstep, whatever, (Pitchfork’s review is an interesting read) but as a guy who was categorically NOT into him a month ago, I am well converted by this album, with “Lindisfarne II” and “Measurements” being my other favorites.Â I will still probably never appreciate his early EPs, but at least I’ll have this album. For those particular moods and moments, it’s as great a fit as any during these wintery days.
