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, Iâ€™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). Iâ€™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 Iâ€™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 M83â€™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 Keleâ€™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. Itâ€™s awesome and will get those bodies moving on the dance floor. A great remix of a dance floor favourite if youâ€™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 doesnâ€™t kill the original. Lovely.
