Best Remixes 2011 – PART 2 (July-Dec)

Joel & Scotts Top 50 Remixes 2010 

More links at the bottom! ///

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

♫ The Joy Formidable – Austere

So I already mentioned what a jam The Joy Formidable’s “Whirring” is and since then you’ve had a fantastic Brahms remix and some time to ruminate on it all. Well I’ve been staying busy by acquiring – and then rocking out to – the rest of the bands awesome EP, A Balloon Called Moaning. It was not easy business to pick which great track I wanted to share here. “Austere” is obviously a rocker with it’s shredding guitars and “ooh ohh oooh oh”s that together could probably deliver enough energy to power the amp needed to blast them. “Cradle” is also epic. “While The Flies” grinds like a middle school dance floor. I could go on, but you get the picture.

Remix Roundup Vol. 21 – 5.6.10 – EPIC!!!!

I feel like we know each other well enough that I can be honest with you, right? Well I gotta say that sometimes I put a remix in one of these roundups that I am not totally in love with but is interesting/unique/whatever. I just want you to know that even though this is the longest roundup ever at 17 tracks this is not one of those cases. All these jams are going off and I am soooo stoked to be delivering them to you! Dive in! The water is hott!

turn the dial on my words, i can feel them fall short

♫ The Joy Formidable – Whirring

The Joy Formidable are a band that is going to need further investigation. Aside from having a perfect name, they also made this fantastic ditty that wedges itself further into my ‘Central Jam Cortex’ with each listen. Their debut (maybe?) album, A Balloon Called Moaning, comes out on Tuesday and if you are like me then you will be all up on that business in hopes of discovering more tracks that you can definitely imagine yourself moshing to with a big fat grin on your face. It really is like rock music for supremely happy people. And that, my friends, is straight up my alley.
