I hate to admit it, but all the remixing efforts after Wow by my boys, MSTRKRFT were starting to sound the same. I still get excited to see anything new though, and this track rocks. Reminds me more of the first couple times I heard their remix of Woman by Wolfmother.
This next track is fun. I’ve seen his name around the blogosphere before, but this is the first listen I’ve given to Kap10kurt. Obviously, the original track was quite alluring on its own! Cool vocoder, and this synthier version stays true to riffs and flow of the classic.
After remaining nearly religiously focused on electro beats for so long, I’ve been warming quite a bit these days to the bassy club tracks. They are a nice bridge for EDM heads like me to cater to more hip hop-oriented party-goers if need be, and I was sold after hearing and lovingFake Blood’s remix of Beeper. Here are a couple minimally vocal remixes of hip hop legends by club giant Sinden and Audiostalkers out of Sweden.
Ravey stuff has been another sound that I haven’t really pursued, likely because of my hatred for hard house. However, I’m coming around. Good tracks by Larry Tee and Don Rimini have showed me the light. I like the child vocals on this one…
Not to be left out, here a couple sweet house tracks, too. Duke Dumont lays down a funky beat with good breaks and some ravey riffs.
Shazam needs no introduction by now, but I felt compelled to show him some love on here after months of neglect. Very nice French/disco sound, groovy piano melodies — me likey.
Speaking of groooovy tracks, I was frankly a little surprised to see that Al-P put together this amazingly disco remix of the DFA 1979 hit under his (unbeknownst to me) pre-MSTRKRFT production alias, Girls Are Short. Groovy disco is kind of the opposite of MSTRKRFT.
And to round out the post, here are a couple mellow tracks. I love the different names that get tossed around to capture this sound/genre — dreamwave, robot disco or to quote Disco Dust, “dreamy 80s disco-flavoured new wave”. Weird Tapes are new to me, but I got my hands on a Ssion track back towards the beginning of the year and used it in a podcast. Enjoy.
