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



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] Rangleklods – “Clouds (Mooryc Remix)”

on our own we found the spot we fit

♫ Rangleklods – Clouds (Mooryc Remix)

Rangleklods’ “Young and Dumb” is one of the freshest songs of the year and now we have this fresh remix by Poland’s fresh Mooryc so the freshness is rivaled only by the funked out weirdo beats and grooves that pop and shift throughout this jam. [via]

[EP] Rangleklods – HOME EP (w/ “Young And Dumb”)

where are you now and who could you be talking to?

♫ Rangleklods – Young And Dumb

  • Who: Esben Andersen
  • What: Glitchy electro wonk-pop, kinda like When Saints Go Machine, Joe Goddard, Yalls
  • Where: Copenhagen, Denmark + Facebook / Soundcloud / Amazon
  • When: Home EP is out now.
  • Why: Continuing the trend of covering Danish bands that Arletta already knows, I have this gem for you today. Rangleklods is a name Andersen made up to avoid preconceived notions about the sound of his music and once you wrap his syrupy and sideways sounds around your head you will understand why. Beats don’t stay on the designated park trail, vocals chop like clouds whipping through the sun’s ray’s, and various other instruments fritter about like so many woodland creatures preparing for winter. Plus “Young And Dumb” has that kind of low and bendy bass line that perks my ears right up. Follow it down the rabbit hole and you will find yourself somewhere strange and intriguing. I’m already there. Listen to “Behaviour” and you will know Peter Gabriel is there too.
