Remix Roundup 75 – [5.31.2014] – Grizfolk, RAC, Panama Wedding, Sylvan Esso, The Soundmen and MORE!

Hey guys. Its the weekend. Phew… We deserve these. Dive in.

Grizfolk – The Struggle (Dawn Golden Remix)

mmmm…. sunshine on a Saturday….

Digitalism – Wolves (ft. Youngblood Hawke) (RAC Mix)

mmmm… RAC on a Saturday…

Panama Wedding – “All Of The People” (Cheap Talk Cassette Mix)

Bombay Bicycle Club – Feel (UNKLE Reconstruction)

ooooh, love this combo

Youngblood Hawke – “Pressure” (The Soundmen Remix)

One of the few acts I’ve been a fan of longer than Youngblood Hawke is The Soundmen. These guys have been killing remixes since damn near the beginning of The Burning Ear over 5 years ago. The Soundmen remixed Youngblood Hawke last year to great success and luck yus, they have done it again. The darker edged “Pressure” gets a funked summery treatment but doesn’t lose its after-dark edge.

“We wanted to explore the duality of pressure as a force of destruction and creation. We thought balancing that idea with the feel good vibes of The Soundmen would create an interesting contrast that brings a new excitement to the track.” – Simon Katz of Youngblood Hawke

Youngblood Hawke - Say Say (The Soundmen Remix)

Youngblood Hawke have always had the energy and the hooks but now TBE faves The Soundmen have given a nice rub of that sunshine funk that makes this remix so damn lovable.

[VIDEO] Youngblood Hawke – “We Come Running”

Much like this video, Youngblood Hawke did exactly what I would do if I got that record label money for a video! Only YH are signed to a major now so they got to go big. Sunshine, swimsuits, and sharks!

[EP] Youngblood Hawke – YOUNGBLOOD HAWKE (w/ “We Come Running”)

headed for the open door, tell me what you’re waiting for

Youngblood Hawke and their new jam “We Come Running” have blown up in the past week. The most requested song on LA’s KROQ radio. Universal Records fast-tracked their EP for a release this week. iTunes is offering a free mp3 download of the song as Song Of The Week. I don’t wanna say that its ALL because of their performance at our SXSW parties… but I don’t wanna say it isn’t. I do wanna say that this jams kicks like the summer sun when you pull back the blinds. It’s in your face and gonna stick with you for the rest of the day. Get caught up with other EP favorite “Rootless” and then pick up the full 4 song bundle here. Summer isn’t over until we say it is.
