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)

Alignment

This song starts with a great (Morgan Page-esc) jangling sound to it then drops halfway through into this awesome grind (sounds a lot like this Electrixx song). I heard the original mix on YouTube then, naturally, I listened to its remixes. This one isn’t the Gerry Cueto mix found on the CD release, it’s actually off the 2-hour “A State Of Trance Episode 442” mix by Armin van Buuren, so I basically cut it out of that and added a fade in/out (*pats back*). It has a way better trance feel to it while not being too heavy for those unfamiliar with the awesome feeling that trance music provides!

George Acosta feat. Fisher – True Love (Gerry Cueto Mix) √++

I was up late last night working on a paper and I was playing through some DT8 Project, they have some good, calming electronica/trance to chillout to.

DT8 Project – Winter (Original Vocal Mix)

DT8 Project – Hold Me Till The End (Club Mix)

DT8 Project – Number One (Felix da Housecat Mix)

To continue with the chillout vibes, this song by The Dining Rooms is an old favorite. It takes a while to get into (about 2 minutes) it but it’s lounge music for a reason.

The Dining Rooms – M. Dupont

And of course, a little dubstep for ya’ll. It’s nothing special, just a real slow, low dubby grind. But I feel it fit in well with the post.

Dub Fiend – The Beginning of The End

Going Back To Space

This song is kinda strange (in the best way) – I feel like I’m in orbit with its tempo fluctuating, wobble-heavy synths. Head bobbing will ensue (especially at 2:02)

Discovery – Osaka Loop Line

I really like Radiohead and think their direction with music (especially in terms of distribution/freedom of use) is groundbreaking. These are just two mixes I found a while back that I love. The first has kind of a dark heavy feel with a sweet bassline (I really dig the intro) while the second is more of a drum & bass remix (DOSVEC has some cool mashups that I’ll upload in future posts)

Radiohead – Everything In Its Right Place (Gigamesh Remix)

Radiohead – Fake Plastic Trees (DOSVEC Remix)

My favorite Felix da Housecat tracks (and yes, the Nina Simone track is on the HTC commercial now…lame)

Felix da Housecat – Ready To Wear

Felix da Housecat – Radio (Shinichi Osawa Remix) (AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME)

• Nina Simone – Sinnerman (Felix da Housecat Mix)

*Compliments of Sir David B*

• Phonat – Set Me Free (Extended Mix)
