I’ve been scrounging through blogs, Hype Machine, playlists and all sorts of musical treasure chests to find some amazing remixes to add to my New Years Eve playlist, and thought I would share a few so that you can benefit from these songs tomorrow night.
Four Tet – Love Cry (Joy Orbison Remix)
Joy Orbison makes a great song even greater.
Robyn – Indestructible (A-Trak Remix)
I was going to put the original into my playlist but this remix has that extra OOOMFFF, yet it isn’t a complete re-arrangement of the original song.
Big Boi vs The Black Keys – Black Bug (Wick-It the Instigator)
A really, really bloody cool mash-up that features on ‘The Brothers of Chico Dusty’, a whole album full of Black Keys and Big Boi mash-ups. Well worth checking out.
Jamie Woon – Night Air (Ramadanman Remix)
Even more haunting than the original, possibly even better than the original? Decide for yourself.
Thom Yorke – Skip Divided (Modeselektor Remix)
Almost certain that I’ve blogged about this before, but it deserves more recognition. Modeselektor makes the song completely his own and there is an amazing second verse where he throws Thom’s vocal line about, turns it inside out and chops it up like a prime onion. Brilliant.
Enjoy them and have a good New Years.
