Hey Internet! Are you listening? Amazing sounds are being created here!
I had theÂ privilegeÂ of catching DWNTWN play on Saturday night and damn if they didn’t redefine what two people, one guitar, and a backing track can do to a stage. (TheirÂ enthusiasmÂ and stage presence easily out-performed M83 and theirÂ supposed epicness.) Plus, DWNTWN’s songs beyond the 2 we alreadyknow are all gold. But until we can get our hands on recorded versions of those jams they are keeping us satisfied with other treats. This cover of Angus & Julia Stone’s “Big Jet Plane” is a great part of their set and is beautifully rendered here. (plus has a video)
Then this new remix of Jessie and the Toy boys continues DWNTWN’sÂ traditionÂ of bonkers reworking of pop jams. Let the dance party begin. 2012, you’ve been warned.

Ahem! Excuse me. If you thought you were taking a break because last weekend was New Years Eve then forget it. This is the first weekend of 2012 and it’s time to kick things off right. Below is a list of the best remixes of the past 6 months and they are quite restless so please let them out this weekend. Walks and feeding are optional.
Any glaring errors in judgement? Any additions you would make? Any good pizza in L.A.?
17. â™«Â M83 – Midnight City (Alcala Remix)Â / One of the top remixed songs of the year had stiff competition but Alcala’s slow build explodes the original into the stratospheric massiveness that it always hinted at.
8. â™«Â Citizens! – True Romance (Gigamesh Remix)Â / From the moment Gigamesh drops that beat it’s all over. The windows are down and I’m practically climbing out the window to get the whipping wind on my face. Thank goodness for seat belts.
1. â™«Â The Notorious B.I.G – Everyday Struggle (Frogs in Socks BiG Bootleg)Â / Just as you get your head around the odd and minimal beat you realize that Biggie sounds clearly than ever and everything fits in such anÂ awkwardlyÂ perfect way you wonder how such a thing could exist. Then you understand that the world is full of all sorts of miracles that nobody can explain.

Coming off his best-of-list-makingBritney remix, Doctor Rosen is back with an EP of his own production with a harem of talented ladies providing the vocals. The appropriately titled EP, Girls Vol. 1, features the talents of Jessie & The Toy Boys, Kay, Meg Meyers, and my favorite, Anjulie. “Sex-Ed” is a sugary sweet polished pop nugget that wears it’s intentions pinned to it’s high rise panties. Sounds about perfect to me. Â Dont think too much on these tracks, just enjoy. And perhaps include in a not-so-subtle mixtape for the pool boy…
Get the whole EP free, and admire the lovely ladies, here. And since it’s Friday why not extend the party with a stellar bonus Doctor Rosen Rosen remix of one of the Girls?
