Best Ever Remixes Part 2

27 May

^^Sweden’s famous Ice Hotel.

Now for our second edition of JeDanse’s favourite remixes, the electro edition. Turning some of your favourite songs and perhaps not so favourite songs into instant (and sometimes trashy) club hits.

Public Enemy – Bring The Noise (Benny Benassi Re-edit) it won the French electro wizard a Grammy and with good reason. The disgustingly talented Benny Benassi always wows us with his fool proof remix style.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (Ryan Nexus Remix) it was A-Trak’s remix that received most of the acclaim out of the many remixes of this track that circulated, however this is the one that we find far more enjoyable to listen to, the clear winner hands down.

The xx – Infinity (Christian TV Bootleg) this remix is amazing. It keeps to the song’s chilled out nature whilst building an underlying anticipation for a electro beat, but is still predominantly an indie-tech hit.

Metronomy – Heartbreaker (Kris Menace Remix) A completely lovable song to begin with, Kris employs his fine tuned remixing skills to give it that something extra and make it a club classic.

Bloc Party – Two More Years ( MSTRKRFT Remix) Before the tragedy that was Fist Of God, MSTRKRFT did some remixes of more indie tracks and did them well. They followed a safe structure, take a good song and make it better. This is one that they did very well.

Lil’ Wayne – One Milli (Nadastrom Remix) Even for those of us who don’t enjoy the occasional corny American R&B dance floor hit whilst horribly drunk (and in a dancing mood), this makes this typical Billboard top 40 track into good quality electro masterpiece, that’s also a lot of fun.

The Ting Tings – Great DJ (Calvin Harris) When they first emerged, The Tings Tings became an instant remix target with DJs flinging around their versions in mass production (and sounding like mass production also), but as usual , the cream rose to the top, and (also as usual) the cream was Calvin Harris.

Of Montreal – Gallery Piece (Mintel Rose Remix) This is one of those remixes that’s just very unique. It’s hard to pick a point of comparison with any other remixes and it’s hard to attribute to it any particular genre. But whatever you want to say about it, it works very effectively.

Guns N Bombs – Riddle Of Steel (Classixx Version) One of our favourite acts to emerge out of the past twelve months, Classixx introduce a powerful and dirty bassline into this track to compliment the already alluring vocals, making the end result quite tantalizing.

Marina and the Diamonds – I Am Not A Robot (The Shoes Remix) We are absolutely obsessed with marina at the moment, and the Shoes give it all they’ve got to turn this into an electro dance anthem without doing any discredit to the song.

The Virgins – Teen Lovers (The Shoes Remix) Okay, so we forgot to mention that we’re also obsessed with the Shoes. Their electro transformations are just addictive…what more is there to say?

Milke – Love Get Out Of My Way (Designer Drugs Remix) Designer Drugs put their electro talent to this track and do what they do best, give a standard pop or indie song an electrifying electro back beat that is impossible to stand still to.

Crystal Castles – Crimewave (LA Riots) This is just a beautifully constructed electro remix of an already awesome indie synth track using every trick in the book.

Shitdisco! – 72 Virgins (Bloody Beetroots Remix) This is the first thing we heard by the Beetroots and what got us so hooked on them. And now, even after their aggressive in-your-face electro sound has become really quite annoying, this remix still stands as one of our favourites.

Kudu – Let’s Finish (Sinden Remix) Kudu tracks, whilst amazing in their original form, always seem to be quite remix friendly, easy to adapt to a new genre through the power of editing. Here, Sinden does it beautifully. Perfect for the dancefloor.

Harlem Shakes – Strictly Game (Kids At The Bar Remix) The remix of this song is practically unrecognizable from the original. The boys from Kids At The Bar give this song a completely different life, at first leading into a indie/dirty electro song, in the chorus it changes it’s tune and become quite uplifting and to great effect.

Snobscrilla – Heartbreak Scorsese (’96 Bulls Remix) Last but not least,the ’96 Bulls give this track a filthy dirty bassline, whilst keeping and emphasizing the synth to give it some awesome club energy.

Wow, that was an intense list, but stay tuned for the next edition; the best of the best.

2009! #30-#26

25 Dec

30 Peaches – I Feel Cream

Sorry, on her second song in the countdown, I couldn’t resist using this picture. Even at 40, Toronto-born Merrill Beth Nisker is as crude and rocking as ever and we love it. Like her older stuff, this is super charged with filthy, raunchy sex driven lyrics over juicy electro basslines. And it’s great that in the latest album she has brought us the best of her vocal abilities, ranging from the gentle, soft murmur in I Feel Cream to the aggressive rapping in Billionaire, featured earlier in the countdown. Being produced by Peaches herself along with Soulwax, Simian Mobile Disco and Digitalism, it’s easy to see how this became such a club hit.

29 Miike Snow – Animal

This Stockholm trio have burst into the indie music scene in 2009 and owe a great deal of success to Animal. With an extremely catchy chorus, this song is almost like the “Kids” of 2009, open to remix and dancefloor abuse in clubs worldwide, but it’s an amazing track so I doubt many people will mind if it’s overplayed. Quirky, happy and lighthearted, this song is easy to listen to and has become one of the biggest indie gems of 2009. The videoclip is also worth checking out.

28 Metric – Gold, Guns, Girls

I think that Monster Hospital will always be Metric’s best song, but this tune still rocked my socks. There is something really addictive about Emily Haine’s voice, that also makes it really easy to either rock out to or chillout to (in this case rock out). Off their latest album, Fantasies, which has already had a lot of success, this indie rock anthem is one of many songs to become instant hits. Perfect to listen to live at a music festival I might add.

Metric – Gold, Guns, Girls

27 Little Boots – Mathematics

This song by the pint sized UK singer/song writer may have been one of the last released from her debut album Hands, but in my opinion definitely one of the best. As well as on a pop level, it also works on an indie-electro level. It’s catchy, synthy, and dancable. Inspired by Sylvia Plath’s poem, Love Is A Parallax, this song uses mathematics as a metaphor for love quite effectively, with puns like “divide a heart by a heart”. And for anyone who’s done a bit of maths themselves, it’s to tempting to love this song, even if at the core, it’s not really about maths, we can still appreciate the puns.

Little Boots – Mathematics

26 Snob Scrilla – Heartbreak Scorceses

This guy is the only example of Aussie hip hop that I actually like, and don’t stop there, I love him! It must be the way that he blends in his hip hop style with rock riffs and indie electro-synth backing music. Heartbreak Scorceses seems to float between sounding sad and happy, although the subject might be sad, there is something about the music that makes it sound slightly upbeat, and this duality works really well for the song. The futuristic synth sounds that introduce and end this song give it that Scrilla cool that groups him with the sophisticated indie crowd instead of the hip hop bogans…give the ’96 Bulls remix a listen too.
