Choir of Young Believers · Hollow Talk (Schories Edit)

An eight minute relaxer that sounds too damn familiar

Alright people, what song does this dude’s voice remind you of It’s definitely a popular one from the early 2000’s that was featured in a movie like Garden State, or maybe it was actually in Garden State. Please let me know if you have any ideas! But moving on from my obsession in figuring that one out…

Oliver Schories’ edit of ‘Hollow Talk’ fits my melancholic mood quite well today. The song is simple, yet the vocals carry alotta weight. They remind me of that stereotypical, turn of the century, “sedated look at life” type music … seen in movies like Garden State, however, the instrumentals are as fresh & up to date as ever.

Check out this 8-minute meditation and let me know what it reminds you of… this is killin’ me.

Katy Perry · Part of Me (No Pets Allowed Remix)

Really starting to adore Perry after these siick electro-dubstep remixes

After this & Coyote Kisses remix of Perry, I really can’t say I dislike her voice all that much, although her persona is a whole ‘nother story. I guess these electro, dubstep remixes bring out the beauty in her voice and leave all the other shit to the wayside.

No Pets’ remix of “Part of Me” may not beat out the Coyote Kisses remix quite yet, but it’s still some healthy electro-dubstep that doesn’t over accentuate the drops and leaves the smooth bass to speak for itself. Now that I gotta stop hatin on Perry so much, I wonder if these dubsteppers will start remixing Ke$ha to my liking… nah.

Ellie Goulding vs Foster the People

"Under the Kicks" Mashup by Alcala

I don’t know how he managed Ellie’s “Under the Sheets” & FTP’s “[Funked] Up Kicks,” but when that chorus hits, shit gets magical. Not sure about the FTP whistles near the end, but ya never know.

Eva Simons · I Don’t Like You (Prod. by Zedd)

Progressing pop one female vocalist at at time.

I’m not gonna bullshit around this, I’m not a big fan of Eva Simon’s voice. I can definitely see her doing well on backups, but she lacks the power & personality to be the main act. Thankfully, we get Zedd to bring in some powerful production with that signature breakbeat electro house. If anything, this is just another case of pop progressing past that all too repetitive, outdated EDM. [WAIT FOR IT] (the drop)

Little Dragon · Little Man (Vindata Remix)

I just gotta point out how gnarly that dude's beard is!

Yukimi Nagano’s voice is truly one of kinda. I hear a hell of a lot of good female vocals everyday, but nothing with the mystique like Yukimi’s.

In Vindata’s remix of “Little Man,” Yukimi’s voice is on another electro level with a lot more fuller sound than the original. The intro also reminds me of The Five One’s cover of “Never Been,” but that might just be me.

Dato · Letting Go

Disco + Good Chorus = Good Times

A good chorus isn’t just catchy, it sucks you in. Dato’s “Letting Go” isn’t just some new flavored disco making its rounds, it’s gotta chorus that’ll float around your head for dayyys.

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).

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).

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.
