Last Friday Night – Katy Perry (Viceroy Poolside Remix)

19 Jul

T.G.I.F (it’s actually Thursday)

This is killer. I only found it by trawling through our inbox (and if you’re emailing us, please avoid capslock at all costs. Most likely I’ll be checking this thing in the early hours of the morning and don’t appreciate my computer SCREAMING AT ME) but it’s great. Viceroy is a producer from San Francisco (whence comes all the coolest music) and remixed Katy Perry’s Last Friday Night last summer! It may be slightly dated but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check it out immediately. I’ve posted the MP3 below and you can download it from Soundcloud. After the jump is the original Last Friday Night video (fun!) and an article I wrote at the time (tempus fugit! I remember writing that in Thailand) about Katy Perry, Beyonce and feminism. It was kinda cool:

Encore – Jay Z & Nicolas Jaar (Buzz-T remix)

17 Jul

Jaar-Z

This is . . . unexpectedly fantastic. Nicolas Jaar has been remixed with Jay Z’s encore and the results are pretty damn dynamic. There’s something here to please everyone’s taste as the remix cruises past unexpected curiosity to something kinda lush. L:isten and replay in the summer to seem cool in front of your friends; ‘I have this great remix you won’t have heard before . . .’:

The Longest Road (Deadmau5 Remix) – Morgan Page (feat. Lissie)

24 Jun

I have finally, FINALLY finished all of my exams. Thank goodness. After four in three days, I was ready to jump off a cliff. Having finally rid myself of urges that on another day might have led me to believe that I was a lemming, I can now provide you with a stream of glorious tunes.

A Payphone Remix For Your Saturday

12 May

Maroon 5’s Plan For Your Saturday

I’m a huge, huge fan of Maroon 5 (some evidence) and super duper excited for their new album. Overexposed is released next month (I think. . .) and it’s likely that it’ll be played again (and again and again) on my iPod this summer. Here’s the video for their new single, Payphone (there are EXPLOSIONS):

Fun remix after the jump:

Overjoyed And The Reason For Remixes

8 May

I don’t normally buy singles. Why pay a pound more for six remixes that are almost inevitably worse than the original. I bought Overjoyed, Bastille’s first single. I don’t regret it.

a2 – Ólafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm (Max Cooper Remix)

3 May

Okay so the other day I stumbled upon something really, really beautiful. No, not Mila Kunis (although I can still dream). I was paddling around and surfing our beloved internet when I discovered a quite frankly gorgeous Max Cooper remix.

Have Some Carly Rae Punk For Your Saturday

28 Apr

Call Her Definitely Maybe

I’d say that Carly Rae Jepsen’s Call Me Maybe will be top of the charts these summer months. I’d place money (if I had any) on it following a neat fun./Gotye type sequence whereby a consistent trickle of stunts propells (or encourages) it to number one (a Glee sequence, Superbowl appearance and a viral cover and Glee sequence respectively.) They’re sleeper hits, or about as much as a sleep hit with which you can charge a pop song. Call Me Maybe has Bieber buzz, Canadian buzz, and surely Glee buzz by the end of season three? Make that happen, RIB. Anyway, here’s a Carly Rae remix for your Saturday – and please don’t assume I mean this is for partying – it’s for all-weathers. Equal amounts useful for a night in with a pizza alone or a night out in Shoreditch. I won’t tell you into which category I fall.

You’ve Got The Love – The XX (Theophilus London Remix)

15 Mar

You’ve Got The Love has been has been an undeniable success. However, The XX’s version featuring Theophilus London is a whole other ball game but don’t worry. I’ve got you covered (yes I just made that joke). Have the three-piece band (the fourth member in the picture is Baria Qureshi who left in late 2009) been able to replicate the same emotion that shone through in Florence’s version?

Take Care (Drake Medley) – Joseph SoMo

12 Mar

For those of you who have read my posts for a while, you’ll know that I thought Drake absolutely killed it with his latest album Take Care. I went through a love affair with each song separately and for the first time really realised the genius of Drake’s lyrics. For any fans of that album, this post is an absolute must-read. You will fall in love with what you’re about to hear.  Continue reading

Born to Die – Lana Del Rey (Hackman Remix)

16 Feb

So I know on this blog we’ve kind of been going Lana Del C-Rey-zy (that’s why you come here: for the quite frankly world class puns), but having spent the last couple of days in Paris and therefore not being able to write, I’ve decided to charm your ears with this nice little remix of such a big song.
