[PLAYLIST] The Best REMIXES of 2012 – Part 1 (Jan-June)

So far, this year has been one of the best for remixes, making this list no easy feat. Speaking of feet, you should warm them up because they will moving in a second…

25. Toby Keith – Red Solo Cup (It’s The DJ Kue Remix!) / And suddenly Toby Keith is not only palatable but highly listenable.

24. Y Luv – Never Touch The Ground (Gazzo Remix) / It’s pretty impossible to improve on the original so taking it in a different direction was a wise move. Get pumped!

23. St Lucia – Closer Than This (Viceroy Remix) / How do you make tropical more tropical? Give Read more

[ARTICLE] The New Tastemakers

The author is actually a woman. Oops.

Five weeks ago I had the pleasure of speaking with a Burning Ear reader who was writing an article on the way music blogs are changing the industry. May Wildman was writing the article for The University of Maryland’s daily newspaper. She asked me questions. We talked. Or rather, I talked. She listened patiently. Perhaps napped. Who can tell. Anyway, When I followed up a few days ago to see how it was received she said the paper never published it. Something about “end of the year and a lot of other material to publish.” Just cause that paper dropped the ball doesn’t mean Wildman’s work should go unread. After all, It’s pretty damn interesting.

[REMIX] PREMIERE: T-Pain ft. Wiz Khalifa & Lily Allen – “5 O’Clock” (DWNTWN 80’s Remix)

its like boy just get your ass up in that car and come get all of this love

♫ T-Pain – 5 O’Clock ft. Wiz Khalifa, Lily Allen (DWNTWN 80’s Remix)

So apparently T-Pain teamed up with Wiz Khalifa and Lily Allen on a boring song about how T-Pain forgot to sex his girlfriend so she eventually texted him a reminder. Then Khalifa gets romantic with a verse about how he didn’t feel like banging any of the other girls in the club so he came home to you. Awww….

If all that just put you to sleep then thank goodness Los Angeles’s dance magicians DWNTWN reworked the whole thing into a jam that actually might keep you up until 5 o’clock. The Mike Tyson sample they worked into the intro is appropriate as this remix is basically Tyson’s the original. Baby eating aside, DWNTWN are on a serious roll and I have no doubt that this is the beginning of a long 2012 of great tracks.

Brandon’s TBE Digest 18 – 1.18.2011 [Passion Pit, Kanye West, Big K.R.I.T., RAC, Das Racist, BRAHMS, Kid Cudi, and more!]

It’s a new year and a lot of good stuff piled up over the holidays. Considering it’s the 18th Digest, today is the 18th (close enough…), and I have 18 tracks, I think this is some kind of perfect Digest or something. Dig in. But really, dig. There are some real gems in the mix down there.

NEW RELEVENT JAMS

♫ Passion Pit – All These Trees / Passion Pit drop a new one through American Express ZYNC. I keep waiting for the song to start but it ends up being all build, no climax. Still nice to hear our boys back in the mix.

♫ BRAHMS – Add It Up / New BRAHMS track isn’t my favorite of theirs but I have to say, seeing them at The Brooklyn Electronic Music Festval last month was a Read more
