The stripped down version of “Hang With Me” fromBody Talk Pt. 1 is a favorite highlight of the disc and so naturally I was hesitant to embrace thisÂ dancier update. However, after seeing Robyn crush it live on Friday I am now sold on it’s value, either way you play it. Robyn took the stage at Warsaw’s Free Form Festival (a night that included an amazing performance from KAMP!) and immediately had the whole place bumpin’ and jumpin’. The girl knows her shit and her backing band of various bearded Swedes did a fine job of bringing the jams to life. Needless to say it was an epic night! It’s just too bad that Body Talk Pt. 2 isn’t as good as the first installment. The tracks all seem to be a bit tamer and bring less funk to the table. It’s definitely good stuff, it’s just that Pt. 1 was great. She is really going to have to up her game if she wants Pt. 3 to get any kind of heavy rotation. It’s just too easy to get bogged down with 3 releases in one year! Anyway, while we wait for Pt. 3 there is at least this fun collaboration with Snoop Dogg who just seems to make everything better!

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

â™«Â Penguin Prison – Worse It Gets (RAC Mix) / Damn. Jams don’t get much fresher than this. I haven’t heard the original yet but I couldn’t wait another moment to share this slice of audio perfection.Â PenguinÂ Prison and RAC are both firing on all cylinders on this buttery smooth funk fest. This jam could cure depression if administered in daily doses. For reals.
