Just put up Xaphoon’s remix of “Marvin & Chardonnay” and now we get a mashup from The Hood Internet with instrumentals borrowed from Wolfgang Gartner’s “The Way It Was.” I can’t quite say which I like better yet, but damn does each have a sick beat to back up Sean & Kanye. Which one do you like better?
This isn’t that complicated of a remix – a hypnotic bass buzzer below with a few electro-glitches on top – but it makes the vocals in it all the more soothing. I love what bass//electo music does to folk songs… as long as they don’t go too far with it.
What do y’all think? Got any other Edward Sharpe electro-remixes in ya pocket?
House usually either bores the shit out of me or inspires like no other. Garcia’s “I Remember You” is a light-weight, progressive piece that takes the right turns at the right times to keep me engaged, but still just lets me sit back and enjoy the ride.
This is only the low-quality preview, so I’ll keep you updated on the final version – though, I don’t know how he’s gonna perfect it anymore.
I can.not get enough of this guy, I’ve been all over the Vodoo Farm SoundCloud page and it has some of the most overlooked sounds on the damn site. Until I can get a SoundKlout feature on him, here’s another one of my favorites of his.
Voodoo’s remix of “Wheelz of Steel” takes these Dirty South Stars and drops the usual dubstep // glitch combo on ‘em. But unlike the usual, Voodoo doesn’t overdue the drops and has a nice balance of the highs & lows.
Two Inch Punch takes Birdy’s “People Help The People” and makes it one beaut.a.ful love rework. Can’t get enough of this revival of soul flavored with electric love. Actually reminds me of a few Weeknd reworks (just a tip for what TIP should rework next).
ill-esha takes on Hellraiser for Halloween and horrorsteps it to a whole new level of devilishness. Even without the Halloween theme, this is one mind-bending track, but it definitely sets the mood off right for any Halloween scare-tactic.
Wait until the vocals kick in and damn does it hit Sogood! Most wouldn’t think you could pull off a smooth jazz rendition of Metallica’s “Enter the Sandman,” but Andy Rehfeldt sure the hell did. Plus, the video on top makes it all the more clever.
I wonder if Lars Ulrich is trying to get his “fair cut” off this…
Pretty Lights was asked by the ReGeneration Music Project to fuse his style with country music for a documentary they are doing. He decided to do two different versions, one is “a dusty hip-hop style track laced with dobro and steel guitars” and the other, a “banging electro hip-hop remix of the first version.”
PL just released the first version and I’m sure the second one is right on its way – probably before the documentary’s release in early 2012.
I have a feeling this isn’t the type of music most Odd Future fans are gonna get, although they’ll probably show their support just cause they love all TYLER everything, but this is definitely some of his realist shit to date. I’m not a huge supporter of Tyler, although his lyrics (for the most part) are beyond most rappers, but here he shows something far beyond even his rap game.
In this collaboration with BADBADNOTGOOD, Tyler sheds his rap demon for an ethereal jam sesh with the group, showing us that there’s something more to Tyler than his young fan base would care to know. What really gets me is in the end, where he has that spark, “a moment”. Now this is Tyler, the creator.
At times this ghetto wobble sounds so damn strange for Neil Young’s “Old Man,” but once you start flowing along with that kind voice of his, the glitched-out funk gets a bit friendlier with this old timer.
I do completely understand why people can’t get into this style of funk, but they should understand that this is a real progress pusher in the music scene right now, and everything progressive gets shit on at the start.
