San Holo – The Future (Taska Black Remix)

In the midst of a discussion about working toward the future yesterday, an acquaintance said that too many people think too far ahead – they’re focused on a grandiose vision years down the road without focusing on the present. It’s important to have aspirations, but rather than banking on huge leaps of progress, you have […]

French Horn Rebellion – Girls (Rogue Vogue Remix)

Ah, well. I suppose the title of this song is truly appropriate. It’s a little bit hesitant, in that the sound of girls emerges in vocals that kind of linger but don’t punch. There’s an adorable tip toeing quality to the music that comes forth from here, like it creeps up on you and then all of […]

Beta Love – Ra Ra Riot (RAC Remix)

How rare it is that I find an RAC remix that I don’t like. Upon first listen, thanks to the recommendation of my brother, I was taken by the attention to detail and sound, not to mention the delicate intro that plummets into an adorable bubbly anthem. This has RAC written all over it. I will find my beta […]

Metric – Breathing Underwater (MNDR Remix)

What does it feel like when two worlds that seem so different suddenly weld together to create one brain crushing world that doesn’t feel like your own at all? I can only imagine that it feels similar to the strangeness of breathing underwater. Not only the surreal idea itself, but the weirdness of actually being […]

Fleetwood Mac – Dreams (Walter Sobcek Remix)

Hold fast to your dreams, for without them life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly” – Langston Hughes Just when I thought I never wanted to hear another Fleetwood Mac remix or mashup ever again…Walter Sobcek whips out their unleashes an early (but very legitimate) contender for classic remix of the year. The mysterious Parisian duo named after […]

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

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 […]

The Mowgli’s – San Francisco (Little Daylight Remix)

Similar to some of their other remixes (see their remix of Man on Fire by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros) this track exudes power and happiness. With a fist in the air and a foot on the ground ready to stomp, this track is a lovely addition to the Sunday line-up of heart warmers and chill vibes for […]

The Weeknd – Wicked Games (Mendez Rework)

Wicked Games is probably one of my favorite songs of all-time, let alone, by The Weeknd. A quality piece of music transports me to another place entirely — emotionally, mentally, and physically. Wicked Games brings you to a place of understanding, not necessarily because the lyrics are relative to our lives, but because the idea of the song is […]

Skinny Lister – Colours (Psychemagik Remix)

“Every story has already been told” –many people …You just have to find a new way to tell it. That’s one of the first lessons you’re taught in creative writing classes, and it’s a hard one to disagree with–particularly when you look at the way Hollywood recycles the same ideas over and over again. As […]

Kimbra – Settle Down (Hot Young Girls Wind It Down Remix)

I’ve never heard as many remixes of one song as I have for this track. That doesn’t mean that I won’t continue to seek out and admire the remixes that deserve praise. This is definitely one of those remixes. What’s great about this take on the track is how honest it is to the original, […]
