Joel & Scotts Remix Roundup Vol. 30 – 10.29.2010 [Lady Gaga, Clock Opera, Vampire Weekend, Zowie, La Roux and more]

Look people, its Halloween weekend which means shits going to get a little bit bonkers (at least here in the US).  We, Joel & Scott happen to be rather large fans of the ridiculous.  So, since we are so thrilled about this special weekend we wanted to set you off in epic fashion.

Here’s a massive cup of RR Vol.30 in your eardrums to start your weekend.

Yeah, that’s right…  We have a ridonculous logjam of tunes to throw at you.  Looks like our goal of just 12 songs is out the window, as we will have to bump it up to 20 for a while to get rid of some of this mass.  You’re welcome.

Lastly, don’t forget to break some dance floor hearts this weekend.

And oh yeah,….  Get Nurdy’

♫ The Dance Party- Sasha Don’t Sleep (Dillon Francis Remix) / Brandon posted another rad mix of this song too, not to mention the original track back in 09.  We’ve really taken a liking to this Sasha girl, and we’re pretty sure  that this Dillon Francis remix will keep her dancing.

♫ Lady Gaga- Monster (Computer Blue Remix) / Ummm yes.  Computer Blue, the duo from OK city have graced all of our eardrums with a BANGER.  This one is special.

Remix Roundup Vol. 28 – 10.11.10 [Miike Snow, Tokyo Police Club, RAC, Naked & Famous, …]

Because sometimes Monday is a good day for a fresh batch of remixes. And because sometimes you know Joel and Scott are right around the corner with their set of bangers and you gotta act fast. And because sometimes I just love you all and want to spread the sonic goodness.

♫ The Dance Party – Sasha Don’t Sleep (Pance Party Remix) / I can’t guarantee that listening to this song will make you as hyped as this crowd but it certainly couldn’t hurt. I love that one of 2009’s best jams is getting more love!

♫ Something a la Mode – 5 AM ft K. Flay (Pance Party Remix) / Did someone say Pance Party? Yeah, I DID! These guys rock the wheels right off on this jam. Something a la Mode are some crazy classical-electro outfit that wisely brought Read more

MAXIMUM BALLOON strikes like a rump quaking and shoulder shaking TIGER

we’re so hung up, like tiny pictures

♫ Maximum Balloon – Tiger (Feat. Aku)

When I first heard this song over a month ago it was only a stream so I had no mp3 but already in that moment I grabbed the album art and sat it on my desktop as a reminder to not forget about tracking it down. Well, vacation over and detective work done, I present the first taste of Maximum Balloon, the side project of TV On The Radio’s resident white dude producer Dave Sitek. “Tiger” clocks in at barely 2 minutes but so far that’s just maximizing it’s repeatability and making me hungry for more! Gotta love that grinding synth, funk-tastic beat, and super guitar riffage! I don’t always vibe 100% with TVOTR but something tells me that this project will be right up my alley. Maximum Balloon’s full album with all of it’s guest vocalists came out yesterday and I’m hoping to get my hands on a copy (ahem!) so I can get a little self-fulfilling prophecy thing going on over here…
