Gemini Club · Can’t Believe You Said That

Indie infused with electronic, you know we hearts it

The mix of electro & indie has sparked my taste since I started this blog, but it’s usually not that experimental, at least comparatively. Gemini Club, however, has broken that barrier with an indie-electro track that gets almost too weird (towards the end). But the vocals are clean and the beats are well laid (for the most part), so I gotta give it up to these three. Glad to see a spark of indie catching on to the weird.

Michael Jackson · Maria (Hype Jones Remix)

Lovesteppin all over one of MJ's first solo tracks

I get hesitant with remixes that get too electro-weird, but sometimes it can be pulled off like this one. Remixing Michael Jackson’s “Maria,” Hype pulls out all sorts of glitch-steppy goodness. And although, at about 2:37 it gets a little much, this is still a well done, experimental-step song. Plus, I gotta give him props for not remixing the usual MJ material (as much as I love it).

Diplo, Diplo.

Master of the Weird

I gotta show some love for my hometown homie Diplodocus. I was a little late to discover Diplo; it was at the end of my third year of high school, back in 2008. My roommate at boarding school popped his iPod in the dock, and played a mix called ‘I Like Turtles.’ The eclectic mix combined hip-hop, jungle, rock, EDM, pop, and Diplo’s own weird sounds so masterfully and gracefully, I was left aching to find more. Then came your typical rush of music discovery: Hollertronix, Fabriclive, Decent for Work for Decent Pay, and tons of miscellaneous Wesley Pentz productions.

Florence + The Machine · Shake It Out (Acoustic)

I think we all knew that Florence gone acoustic would be as lovely as ever.

I feel like this should’ve flooded the blogs a couple months back when it first appeared, but from what I can tell it didn’t – though I’m sure someone will prove me wrong… anyone It’s just that this acoustic version of Florence’s “Shake It Out” is so.damn.lovely, so why no posty I’m guessing it still hasn’t been officially released, but who knows.

Make sure to check out the video of her recording it below and this dubstep remix of “You’ve Got the Love” (Sogood).

Run-DMC · It’s Tricky (SSX Pretty Lights Remix)

Puttin an electro-trip to this hip-hop classic

I’ve actually had my ups and downs with this one, it’s not that I ever disliked it, I just didn’t have as strong of a feeling for it. I love that signature Pretty Lights sound, but there’s really nothing new as far as experimenting and that’s why I love the dude so much in the first place.

Still, it takes us back and makes for one hell of a Run-DMC remix… although, it’s still not on the level of his 2010 unreleased remixes (yet).

Dirty South · Walking Alone (Sex Ray Vision Remix)

featuring the lovely, lovely vocals by Erik Hecht

Sex Ray Vision tune up the electro in Dirty South’s house banger, “Walking Alone” and I’m honestly just here for those vocals, simply lovely. But I gotta give it to SRV as well, they’re always doin dirty on their remixes.

Adele vs. Daft Punk · Something About The Fire

A tantalizing nu-funk mix by Carlos Serrano

I’m one of those annoying assholes that plays a song to death and then again, let’s just say I enjoyed every minute of this, so a cool, nu-disco recook of Adele is welcome as always.

The one thing I cannot stand is a remix/mash that takes popular vocals, such as Adele’s, and remixes it with the same.old.shit (EDM nowadays). If you’re gonna remix, or especially mash, it better sound like nothing I’ve heard before, and that’s just what Carlos Serrano did.

Blending in a classic Daft Punk hit that hasn’t been mashed to death was refreshing to hear. Didn’t really like how he kept the original vocals from “Something About Us,” but it’s blended much better than most mashers pull it off.

Deltron · Bioscientists

A precursor to the Event

On Thursday, Del threw this up on Facebook, “Here’s the deal yall, help me hit 20K fans on here and I’ll release a new Deltron track. Tell a friend to tell a friend.” So he hit 20k Friday and released “Bioscientists” … though it may not technically be a Deltron track. Today, Del stated, “Just so everybody knows, Dan and Koala were not a part of that track. It was a Deltron solo joint I was fucking around with content wise and wanted to share with yall.”

Some are bitching, as always, about it not being produced by the two and, although, I can see where they’re coming from, Del was the original creator and “Bioscientists” still plays into the Deltron story. I will say that it was a bad move to promote it as Deltron without making it clear from the start that Kid Koala & Dan had nothing to with it.

Kaskade · Room for Happiness (Feature Cuts Remix)

featuring Skylar Grey’s vocals that complement Feature Cuts' filthy drop

Remixes for Kaskade’s “Room For Happiness” have been popping up left and right throughout the blogosphere but through the clutter comes Feature Cuts’ banging Dubstep remix of the song. The up and coming Houston-based EDM producer combines the beauty of Skylar Grey‘s voice with some heavy bass and synths that takes the song to another level.

Notorious B.I.G. & 2Pac · Watching Over the Throne

Presented by DJ Rob Dinero & O'neal McKnight

Was wondering if I was gonna see Biggie or 2pac mixed into this Watch the Throne hit, but never thought I’d get the pleasure of both. DJ Rob Dinero & O’neal McKnight present one well laid mashup with Biggie’s “Notorious Thugs” up first. The cuts are right on point and goes hard up until the 2pac transition, which is my only gripe with it. It sounds off for a few, but ends well with 2pac’s “Loyal 2 the Game” rhymes.

Make sure to check out the video too, good shyyt.
