Lifelike & Popular Computer – Getting High (Pyramid Remix)

Initial impression: Stunned. As I slipped the headphones over my ears, the sensations were already pouring out of the stereo, and I felt myself slipping, slowly and generously into Pyramid‘s rendition of what was an electro/funk vortex. The original version feels a little like a scene out of Scarface, somewhere between a leisure suit and a pile of cocaine. It’s awesomely energetic and features an undeniable beat-drop-build-up. Lifelike and Popular Computer each craft their own special blends of electronic and club music. Lifelike is rowdy and bouncy, Popular Computer is old school smooth and Pyramid completes the French trifecta with his fourth dimension spatiality.

Meanwhile what is so fascinating about this remix is the genre jumping that takes place. Pyramid deconstructs Getting High and creates this cavernous experience. Where the original was chaotically enticing, Pyramid invites you to slow down and pass the proverbial dream stick. The result is intoxicating and sensual and will likely make you want to get high if you aren’t already. So I encourage you to find the most comfortable chair nearby, crank the volume and sink into this remix.

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Juin 2011

The second I pressed play on this tape I had to stop dead in my tracks to sit back and take it all in. It’s only Wednesday and this has already been one heck of a week…

That’s why I’m heading for the coast, it’s the only reside I know… – Loud Valley

Of course, dead smack in the middle of it all Steph sends me  a therapy session in the form of a mixtape that puts everything in perspective. The first five songs in this tape were meant to be together, in that order and released on June 15th, 2011. If you’re busy, overwhelmed with work and need something counter the load put this on repeat, it’s guaranteed to make it better. If you’re an LMDM fan you already know each tape stands along and this one is no different.

I myself have a bunch to do before heading to the water this weekend but I had to share this new tape with you before doing anything, enjoy.

The artist I am most excited about this month is Metronomy. Check them out if you haven’t already. They have three albums and have done many many amazing remixes. Another is Connan Mockasin, another UK based artist, but native to New Zealand. I couldn’t contain my excitement and amazement for CM’s video for “Dolphin Love” when my friend Maggie Godwin first showed it to me. Read her post and watch the video here. Connan supported Mystery Jets for a London show last summer and most recently opened for Warpaint on their UK tour.
