Coldplay – Midnight (Giorgio Moroder Remix)

Coldplay - Midnight (Giorgio Moroder Remix)

I’m not usually one for remixes, but every once and a while I find out that captures my attention. The latest to do so is a remix of “Midnight” a track off Coldplay’ssoon to be released new album, Ghost Stores (out May 19 via Parlophone/Atlantic).

“Midnight” is a bit of a departure from the band’s usual sound, and Moroder clearly recognizes that. On his remix, he transforms the song into a heavenly bit of dance glory. I’m digging it quite a bit.

Stream the remix below.

Eluusif – You Should Be Mine (Craniel Daig Mix)

By Will Oliver, March 24th 2014

Eluusif

In April London electronic producer Eluusif is releasing his new EP called Aliens Do It Better. Check out a cool mix featured on the EP that Craniel Daig did of his track “You Should Be Mine.”

Bolstering a big Chromeo-like bass groove with house-ready female vocals. A little bit funky, a little bit pop, a pretty fun feel good track, even if it is somewhat on the guilty side. Read the rest of this entry »

Vampire_Weekend - Step

In 2013, Vampire Weekend had as good of a year as any. They released one of my favorite albums of the year, and headlined Barclays Center.

They capped it off in proper style, releasing a “wintertime remix” of “Step” (my favorite song of the year) last week featuring Danny Brown, Heems, & Despot. They shred the remix on twitter, and it’s available to grab as a free mp3 download below.

By Will Oliver, October 4th 2013 — with 2 comments

BAIO-Mira

Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio makes tropical influenced dance tracks under his DJ moniker name Baio when he’s not playing bass for them. He’s releasing a new EP titled Mira on October 28 via Future Classic. He released an EP last year titled Sunburn.

Below, check out a remix he did of New Navy’s “Regular Town” while we wait for some new material.

Avalanches

While we wait for Avalanches to finally release a new album, they’re giving us some remixes to keep us somewhat occupied. The latest is a rework/edit of Hunters & Collectors track “Talking To A Stranger”, straight out of 1982. It will be released on Crucible: The Songs Of Hunters & Collectors on September 27.

Enjoy the radio edit of the song posted below. Hit the jump for the full length version of the song.

Phoenix – Trying To Be Cool (Remix Feat. R. Kelly)

By Will Oliver, August 14th 2013

R Kelly x Phoenix

Well that was fast. Just yesterday Phoenix teased that an R. Kelly featured remix of “Trying To Be Cool” was on the way. We had no idea that it would come the very next day, but why wait I suppose.

R Kelly and Phoenix work together far too well, in a combination no one saw coming (prior to Coachella) yet it works almost too well. It’s a treat, and something fun to get you through the rest of your hump day.

Enjoy the remix below.

Local Natives – You & I (Local Natives Remix)

Local Natives - You & I (Local Natives Remix)

You read that title correctly. Today I received an e-mail from Local Natives very own Kelcey Ayer, informing me that he has been doing some remixes of songs from Hummingbird. He just released the remix for “You & I” today. As far as remixes go, this is as legit as it comes, straight from the band itself. So I guess you can consider this an alternative version of sorts.

Enjoy it below, via Kelcey himself.

Who better to remix The xx than Jamie xx himself. He gives his personal edit of the song that’s more along the lines of what you would get at their live shows. More bass driven and a little dancier. I like this version of the song quite a bit.
