The Remix Roundup – Part 1

Submitted by / 9 years ago / New Songs

Alright guys, I am Fraser, one of several new bloggers on this fine site and with this I am bringing you another feature. In the most basic terms, I’ll be uploading remixes, live versions and covers that you may have missed over the years or maybe forgotten about or perhaps not known how to access. Being a DJ myself, I love finding remixes and playing them in a set but I initially found it difficult in finding the best ones as there are so many (with the majority of them being awful). I’m going to make your life easier by posting the best of these tracks which I have gathered over the years.

Now then, to start off I am going to give you three remixes which should hopefully give you a taste for what is to come, starting with a band I’ve always loved and who are not short on remix material.

Bloc Party – Pioneers (M83 Remix)

Haunting, powerful and epic are all adjectives you could use to describe M83’s remix of Bloc Party‘s single Pioneers which can be found on the Silent Alarm Remixed album. This is the stand out remix on the album and Kele’s vocals are the perfect complement to this stunning re-work. Sit back and enjoy.

Duck Sauce – Barbra Streisand (Love Thy Brother Remix x Bassnectar)

This next remix comes courtesy of Producers Love Thy Brother who have taken the massively popular track Barbara Streisand by Duck Sauce and created a fresh drum and bass/dubstep mix. It’s awesome and will get those bodies moving on the dance floor. A great remix of a dance floor favourite if you’re looking for that something different.

Two Door Cinema Club – What You Know (LightsOverLa Club Mix)

My last post today comes courtesy of my new favourite band Two Door Cinema Club. 2010 was a sensational year for the Northern Irish three piece with their breakout album Tourist History which has led to a string of nominations for various awards. This is a remix of my personal favourite and their newest single What You Know by Lights Over LA. A Simple and effective mix that doesn’t kill the original. Lovely.
