Friday Remix #4

I love that they had to come up with a new genre of music for the original of this song.  “Hollywood Sadcore”.  HOLLYWOOD SADCORE!!!  How fab is that!  Naturally there have been a slew of remixes for Lana Del Ray’s left-of-the-middle hit.  No suprises then that the one that tickles me is the one that shunts its sound along a couple of decades, swapping its 50’s A-line skirt and curlers for some flares and an afro wig.

Remix Friday #2

Love, love, love this remix.  A big fan of Rayko and his sweet, sweet edits of classic cuts and lost gems.  If you like this, check out his soundcloud page.  The man is a genius.

Earworm #2

The Donkey, before it burned.

So after having my senses turned inside out at Burning Man this year, I have returned with a renewed sense of verve and thought I would try flogging this ailing horse of a blog one more time. Although not all Burning Man related, here are a few tracks that have been spanking my fanny (American usage) over the past couple of months.  If you like them, just right click the title to download, not that I would encourage or endorse that type of behavior.

Holy Ghost! – Wait & See (Flight Facilities Remix)

In a vague attempt to wring the last drops of sunshine from what has been an utterly awesome summer, this song just about sums it up.  I discovered it just before our epic West Coast roadtrip, and it certainly captures some of those beatific, paint the sky moments.

Golden Bug & Rodion (feat. Lavinia Claws) – Do The Washing Machine (Original Mix)

Starting with a slightly industrial sound that soon gives way to satisfying Daft Punk crunchy bounce-beat.  Bonkers subject matter interspersed with the odd chic-a-chic-a-chic-a-chic-ah.  Delicious.

Cut Copy – Take Me Over (Thee Loving Hand Remix)

Once again, Thee Loving Hand crafts another progressive and indulgent remix, turning Cut Copy’s happy clappy Fleetwood Mac-esque homage and slowly building it into something quite terrifying.

Nicolas Jaar – A Time For Us

On a par, if not better than the more popular James Blake, I am at a loss why this track wasn’t included on Nicolas Jaar’s debut album Space is Only Noise. One thing is for sure, around the 3 and a half minute mark, it get pretty damn sultry, and makes me think of all sorts of nasty things.  Squirrels, watch out (sorry Burning Man reference).

Ron Basejam – Deep & Meaningless (Is The Word (Killer Whale Italo Refix))

Seeing as I’m off for a stomp (recovering ankle permitting) at Horsemeat Disco this weekend, I though I’d end on a nice little slice of nu-italo disco from one half of Salmon Stereo favourites, Crazy P.

Blast off!

Here we go!  Ichisan (Igor Skafar) is a little known  mardi-lecki-squggle-music maker from far off Slovenia.  Along with another Slovenian called Nakova he makes spangly electronic noises and has helped coined the term “Yugo Disco”

Ichisan’s track here called Radar Pulse Is Sent is a very fine slice nu-disco with fizzling synths that arpeggiate over a steady pulse.  I imagine this what discovering that you had superpowers and taking your first flight through interstellar space would sound like.
