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.

The xx – Sunset (Jamie xx Edit)

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.


Daft Punk are cool enough that get to remix their own songs. But then again, they’re also good enough to make the songs into new wholes and create almost a new song within a song.

This is what they did on their remix of “Get Lucky” , where they extended the song to 10-minutes, mixing Pharrel’s vocals with theirs almost battling for the spotlight.

A 12″ of featuring the remix as well as the album/radio edit will come out July 16. Check out the remix below.

Flying Lotus posted a remix of Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You” tonight on twitter, calling his version “binge eating without you”. This is hot, and it’s not even finished yet.

Fly Lo also just released a short film called Until The Quiet Comes.

alt-J – Fitzpleasure (Jim James Apple C Remix)

By Will Oliver, September 6th 2012

Jim James, My Morning Jacket’s front-man, gave alt-J’s incredible song “Fitzpleasure” a pretty wild remix. The song is electic and unique as it is, but James found a way to bend its boundaries even more.

alt-J have a sold out show at Bowery Ballroom next week (September 12). Their album is finally getting released stateside on September 18 via Canvasback.
