Great day ahead of the TSRE crew - checking out the Shepard Fairey exhibit at the ICA, seeing Watchmen in IMAX, and then catching Matt and Kim and Cut Copy at the newly reopened House of Blues. Fly.
Been sitting on these remixes for a while - didn't have a great place to post them, though. So here they is.
Start off with the official Villains remix of Britney's "Circus". Villains was spinning at a dance party I went to in the fall, and they were definitely worth the trip. They cut up and speed up Circus until it's bumping at a proper pace, putting Brit back on the dance floor where she belongs.
Today's second remix comes from Fuck Buttons, that horribly named group. I like their steez, but I'm never going to recommend them to anyone over the age of 24. Seems like a poor way to build word of mouth about how baller your tracks are. Anyway, this remix is of the first single from the new Fever Ray album, "If I Had A Heart". Fever Ray, for those who are unaware, is a side project of Karin Dreijer Andersson, half of The Knife. This cut is long, pulsing its way across over 8 minutes until it's solidly in your brain. Not my favorite remix, but worth a listen.
And finally, make way for the...make way for the...make way for the S-O-VEEEEEEEEEEE. Lady Sov's first single, "I Got You Dancing", which I posted about when it first dropped. This remix is fun and jumpy and definitely puts a cool spin on the track. The RMX has a long and clunky name, but the texture added to the original track is MSTRKRFTy and tasty.
