Baio (the electronic solo project of Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio) has done a mighty cool re-work on Broken Bells “Holding On For Life.” Baio changes up James Mercer’s lead vocals quite a bit, giving it a cool floaty feel.

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.
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.
Well that was fast. Just yesterday Phoenixteased 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.
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.
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.
