Melbourne’s The Bamboos are dropping the “Avenger” remixes EP next Tuesday and this kicked back and funked out take is a fantastic return by TBE faves Javelin. Where the heck have those weirdos been? Never mind, we’re just glad they are back with this slice of daytime poolside sci-fi booty shaking music. Don’t miss getting into the original as well before all the remixes drop next week!

Joel & Scotts Top 50 Remixes 2010 

More links at the bottom! ///

Ok, so we’ve got some remixes here! I have to say, I haven’t been blown away by a lot of remixes this year. A handful have been on repeat but most others have just lasted a few listens. Anyway, RAC is back in full effect, basically dropping pure gold. Don Diablo is doing his thing, turning so-so tracks into epicness. The Soundmen are back with another super-infectious remix. The Hood Internet (and Jay-Z??) are dominating the little Mashup section at the bottom. Some familiar names, some fresh faces, all great jams. I’m going to leave these without comments for now because frankly, they don’t need them and I want to get this list out in time for Friday night! Rock on! Read more
