When things are falling apart there’s nothing better than to find yourself with a catchy hook. And if you listen to the original, Charli XCX samples Gold Panda’s You — and that my friends, is as catchy as it gets.
Josh has done it again, a nu disco remix that stays true to the meaning behind the lyrics yet injects the original with a bassline with its own personality and the usual Goldroom tune flavour. The bridge and its synth chord progression with the kicks and snares is something that gives the remix some breath of fresh air, a balearic air of sorts — for moments at least. We await the official release of this remix that’s forthcoming on Asylum Records on February 10, until then find a promo copy after the jump. Enjoy your afternoon with this one.
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.
