Plastic Plates – Things I Didn’t Know I Loved (Bufi Remix)

office beach

We posted the original already, but this is simply too damn glorious not to share. Plastic Plates has made a name for himself in 2012 as that guy who takes pretty good songs and turns them into ridiculously fun and really good looking remixes (he’s also the only reason why I’ll listen to Adele). Felix has a pretty lethal pedigree (drummer for The PresetsSneaky Soundsystem, etc.) and he’s Australian–so when he points in a direction, it’s a good idea to head that way. He’s pointed to Mexico, where we–and him–just got BUFI‘d.

With this uplifting, hypnotic, and percussive production, Bufi took a page straight out Plastic Plates‘ book, turning the good into the astounding. The result is Magician like–really, when I first heard this remix, that’s the name that came to mind. While Bufi is still somewhat under the radar, he–along with Pat Lok, Falcon Punch, and Chordashian–is a name I expect you’ll see plenty more of in 2013.

Tell me what I’m thinking of…

In 2012, I’ve realized that I kinda love a lot of things I never though I could even like. Deep house, Tofu (sorta), “Pressed” Juice, Yoga, and (moderate) Sobriety chief among them. Thanks to Bufi, “Mescal-infused electronic-disco” can add itself to that list. Cause while I don’t know what Bufi stands for (probably not Spanish for BUFU), it might as well be Spanish for “dance motherfuckers, dance.”

Little Dragon – Ritual Union (Bufi Remix)

It’s been a few months since I was in the Dominican Republic. The last time I was there I played the closeout fashion week parties for Dominican Modo 2011 and all I remember is a bunch of rowdy islanders dancing and jumping around so hard that the floor was shaking with my DJ booth about to break down. Had it not been for all the Shave Your Legz cats holding it together as I tried to keep mixing I’m pretty sure things would have gotten ugly. My nostalgia for the good times and my Dominican tastemaker friend led me to their website where I ran into one of their latest mixes and decided to show some love. Below are a few of my favorite tracks for their latest playlists, if you’re not hip to it yet I highly recommend adding it to your list of things to follow, it’s nothing but good jams, enjoy.
