I Miss Coachella

I love this song, it has a very mellow nu-disco feel

Priors – What You Need (Hey Champ Remix)

Ferry Corsten recently released his new mix CD, Once Upon A Night, this is the first song off the album and I’m really liking the piano

Yuri Kane – Right Back

I know it’s not new, but I love the Bag Raiders’ ridiculously awesome indie-pop beat!

Bag Raiders – Shooting Stars (feat. Rhys of ‘Ted & Francis’)

This La Roux mix is really unique, the steel drums add a really cool chill-out vibe

La Roux – Quicksand (Boy 8-Bit remix)

This Crystal Castles live performance is pretty good, the intro was wonderfully done

Crystal Castles vs. Health – Crimewave (Midnight Conspiracy Remix)

Pitbull and Benny Benassi (one of my favorite sets at Coachella) put together an awesome dance mix with this mash-up of “Satisfaction” and “Move Shake Drop”

Pitbull – Move Shake Drop (Satisfaction Cover) (Mix Munkies Extended)

This is a cool drum n bass mix of Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” that really drops at 2:23

Rihanna – Rude Boy (TC Remix)

This fuzzy/bubbly mix of Tegan & Sara’s “Alligator Tears” oozes Morgan Page’s style. Great beat, unique vocals

Tegan & Sara – Alligator (Morgan Page Remix)

Miike Snow was fantastic at Coachella, looked nothing like I thought he did :P but Felix da Housecat recently mixed “Silvia” to the best that I’ve heard, enjoy

Miike Snow – Silvia (Felix da Housecat Remix)

Designer Drugs have been pumping out a buch of tracks lately, one of their latest, a mix of Treasure Fingers’ “Cross The Dancefloor,” adds a tastefully wobbly bassline and catchy two-steppin’ breakbeat

Treasure Fingers – Cross The Dancefloor (Designer Drugs Remix)

Finishing up this post with “Dead-Mow Five” (joke) mixing Eric Prydz’s “Pjanoo” (for the millionth time) from his set from WMC 2010

Eric Prydz – Pjanoo (Deadmau5 WMC 2010 Edit)

Forbidden Cuts

There are a lot of Tetris remixes out there but I really like Electrixx’s take on it

Electrixx – Tetris (Original Mix) (good grind)

Ianizer & Lemethy just dropped this noble sounding track

Ianizer & Lemethy – Aimer (Original Mix)

Here’s some chill drum & bass by Indivision to fit the flow of the post

Indivision – Final Departure

I heard Metro Area a while back, but I came across this electro track of theirs randomly on YouTube

• Metro Area – Caught Up

Nu-Disco always puts a smile on mah face. Xinobi, who released these tracks to the blogs over a year ago, has finally, officially, put out on the CDs “Discotexas Forbidden Cuts Vol. 1” and “Work It Baby.” (Does anyone care? No? Carry on then…)

Xinobi – Valsa in NJ

Xinobi – Day Off

Xinobi – Losing Sight (dirty)

Phonat is a trip when it comes to music videos

Bottle What You Got

The Black Ghosts are simply 2 guys: former Simian Mobile Disco vocalist, Simon Lord, and Wiseguy’s programmer/multi-instrumentalist, Theo Keating, aka DJ Touche. Mixing together a 1970’s AM pop music sound with heavy synthesizers, most of their popular tracks have undergone catchy remixes from artists like Boy 8-Bit, Plastician & Skream, and Fake Blood. Their song “Full Moon” also appeared in Twilight. While I found the rest of the CD to be predominantly meh, these songs, however, all have a high play count in my library and continue to please. Also, take the time to watch the videos below as well, they’re very well done and strike a nostalgic chord with me (LEGO FTW!) Enjoy!

The Black Ghosts – Anyway You Choose To Give It

The Black Ghosts – Full Moon

The Black Ghosts – Some Way Through This

Awesome Remixes!

The Black Ghosts – Anyway You Choose To Give It (Boy 8-Bit Mix)

The Black Ghosts – Some Way Through This (Plastician & Skream Remix)

The Black Ghosts – Anyway You Choose To Give It (Fake Blood Remix)

Their Videos Are Pretty Cool Too
