[PLAYLIST] The Best REMIXES of 2012 – Part 2 (July-Dec)

TBE-Best-of-2012-Remixes

 

Man oh man. Could we be in a better world for fun remixes of great songs? Some of the old guard has been slacking in quality lately (RAC, where you at?) but new talent is cropping up in droves. Cyril Hahn practically made his name from that Destiny’s Child remix. Noah Hyde is on the map with amazing work. Manu el Chino nabs his second spot of 2012. Too many great tracks. Get on it for the weekend and check out all the bands and remixers you may have missed through the years. And especially listen to that Years & Years remix. What a genre flip. Mmmm…..

Be sure to catch all the 2012 “BEST OF” lists!

[REMIX] Ben Howard – “The Fear” (Moonlight Matters remix)

i been worryin’ that my time is a little unclear i been worryin’ that i’m losing the one’s i hold dear

♫ Ben Howard – The Fear (Moonlight Matters remix)

I never covered Ben Howard’s album on TBE but I’ve mentioned his epic “Call Me Maybe” cover and the Peking Duck remix of “Old Pine.” I also saw him live last month and he blew me away. All his songs were turned up to 11 and slayed onstage. It was a lot like hearing this Moonlight Matters remix, really. All the good parts of the original are still there but the energy is kicked up a few notches. That climax at 4:57 is pretty much what the concert felt like.

♫ Calvin Harris – Feel So Close (TABS Bootleg Remix) / I have a hard time seeing anyone topping  this TABS rework of “Feel So Close”.  This is the kind of remix that puts a fat grin on my face and a wiggle in my hips.

♫ Pendulum – The Island (Madeon remix) / Madeon is a 16 year old producer from France,… a wait, 16?!  Are you F’n kidding???  This kid, ain’t a kid at all.  Dude is a pro.  Props.
