I’m finding it hard to recall the last time an artist put out so many successful tracks in as short a time as Sound Remedy has done. With the release of his “Neopolitan Dreams” remix — already a contender for song of the summer — following hard on the heels of the epic KO KO remix “Float” and the Haunted Valor EP, you’d think the man in the mask would be ready to take a little down time. Not so much. When you find yourself in the zone, you just want to keep at it and see what other genius comes out the speakers.
Enter Sound Remedy’s remix of “The Funeral.” An amazing track from Band of Horses gets the dub-electro spin it was crying out for. The best thing about Sound Remedy’s remixes? He doesn’t diminish the parts that make the original song so compelling. Easy to say, harder to do — and harder to perfect.
I’d have no problem paying for tracks like these — the quality and replay value would make the price well worthwhile. Buuuuut … he’s giving them away for free. God Bless Sound Remedy!
A week ain’t a week unless it’s sweet. With the sun a-shining, the last thing you want to do is spend a couple of hours in front of your laptop searching for new tunez. That’s what I’m here for! (You’re welcome.) I got you covered: sit back, press play, and enjoy the soundz of summer. bpm:tv presents … your May Two-Four Sweets of the Week!
I admit it: Justin Bieber‘s “Boyfriend” is one of those songs I find myself humming in the shower or singing along with in the car. At this point, some readers of this blog have already closed their browsers and moved on. For those of you who decided to give me the benefit of a doubt and stick around: the Swedish duo Dada Life has taken the original and turned it on its head, making it over into something you can sing aloud freely with your windows wide open. Once you’ve heard this, the original becomes obsolete.
When I went to Webster Hall in New York to see Annie Mac, Savoy was the opening act. Now, it can’t be easy to open for a DJ whose set features all the most in-demand tracks. It leaves you with the leftovers. Happily for Savoy (and for the audience that night), “leftovers” meant their own originals. Since then, whenever I hear the name Savoy I sit up and pay attention. This time around they link up with Heather Bright, throwing in a little dubby-wubby to get you scooting over to Beatport to cop this tune.
You know that moment when you walk into club in the middle of summer, and everyone is already screaming and sweating? That moment when your heart starts beating faster and a grin steals uncontrollably across your face? Usually in that moment it’s a DJ Dan track playing in the background. The legend is back, with a new tune that will put you right back in that moment.
Last, since next week is Pryda week, I’m assigning some homework: listen closely to these classic tracks from the master. Whether as Cirez D, Eric Prydz or Pryda, one fact remains consistent: this dude puts in the work. Enjoy some faves, and feel free to suggest your own in the comments below!
“Not Going Home (Remix)” – I kept the rip ’cause it just sounds alive. Gotta love Pete dropping a world exclusive.
And if you missed it his new one … “Allein”
Bassnectar fans will love this one. His new album which we reviewed a few weeks back, is causing a stir with a wide cross-section of “good music” fans across the world. From heavy metal fans to ravers to jungle junkies, the response is the same: This sh*t is crazy. Here, he takes the Prodigy-like “Ugly” and adds appropriate visuals.
