Remix Rush :: Van She/M83

Although this track was released quite some time ago I feel like I have to post it. M83 has taken the track ‘Kelly’, originally by Van She, and transformed it into a melodic shoe-gazey masterpiece. Although you can still tell the remix is M83, it doesn’t have that dark feel that a lot of his music has. In fact it’s completely uplifting. This is not the first time M83 has remixed an artist from the record label Modular. He also reworked the track ‘Shadows’ by label mates Midnight Juggernauts. I would like to see him take on more dance tracks, he does a great job on these remixes.

The Bloody Beetroots 2009 Remix Teaser

The Bloody Beetroots completely blew-up in 2008, and rightfully so, they produced some of the best dance tracks of the year. I am completely in love with their easily recognized hard-hitting style and this preview of their upcoming releases makes me want to pee my pants. It seems they are mixing up their sound a bit, which is not a bad thing because they are doing it well. I can’t wait for these tracks to drop! See the tracklist after the jump.

Muxtape Relaunches

The long-awaited relaunch of the music site Muxtape has (kind of) arrived. A preview of the new site shows playlists (if you can call them that, as most of them only contain 3-4 songs) by twelve featured artists including Girl Talk, Of Montreal, Dan Deacon and more. I have mixed feelings about Muxtape, I am a bit baffled as to why it became such a big phenomenon. It seems Last.fm offers so much more, or Favtape that followed Muxtape. However, I am still excited to see what they have in store and to see if they can live up to the users’ expectations.

New Cadence Weapon – Name Your Price

Cadence Weapon has a new release out available now for download at a “name your price” amount. Apparently the tracks on the album, titled Separation Anxiety, are available exclusively on the album. It’s pretty rare these days that an artist like this doesn’t release a bunch of tracks to the blogs before the album comes out. For that I give him props. Most of the album appears to be remixes, but Cadence Weapon has teamed up with production masters like A-trak, Herve, A1 Bassline and Sinden. I say head over and pay your price for what looks to be 20 worthy tracks. View the track list here.

CHICtopia

In a nutshell Chictopia is a place for girls to share, discuss, browse, read about and shop all things that are fashion. The website is a community that allows you to join and the participate by uploading photos of your own styles, as well as rating other girls’ style. I really enjoy browsing websites like this not only for entertainment but for a source of inspiration.

New Boxfresh Shoe Line

The UK label Boxfresh known for their awesome threads has released photos of their new shoe line coming out in the second quarter of this year. From the photos provided they all look to be a loafer-style, with thin soles. The model shown above, called the Sipp, is my personal favorite. I love the velcro strap and the large perferated area. Very slick. The line will be available at Coutie when they are released. More photos after the jump.

Flight of the Conchords Season 2 Premier

Discovering comedies that I actually find funny is a hard thing to do these days. It seem like Hollywood puts Will Farrell in his underwear farting in someone’s face and it’s a hit. Sadly most of those movies lost their appeal long ago. However, finding out that HBO is premiering season 2 of Flight of the Conchords this Sunday completely made my day. If you haven’t yet discovered the hilariousness of Flight of the Conchords now is the time. HBO has made the entire first episode of season 2 available to watch on their website. Me, I am going to wait until it airs and watch it in all its glory on the widescreen. But if you want a taste of how funny the show is I suggest you check it out.

Grizzly Nights Tees

Lately I have had a thing for simple, duotoned or black and white tees. Grizzly Nights have a line that features fairly basic, but yet bold designs. The tees are designed, hand screen printed and labeled by Grizzly Nights themselves. I really enjoy the minimal approach, using black and white, basic shapes and hand drawn illustrations.

Sim City for the iPhone

I am not by any means what you would call a gamer, however there are the occasional video games that seem to get me hooked. EA recently released Sim City for the iPhone and I have been having a hard keeping my battery charged ever since I downloaded it. At first I was a bit hesitant to spend $9.99 on the application. A lot of the reviews I read said it was buggy and they were having problems with it crashing. But I have found it to be nothing less that absolutely additive.

Sebastian Onufszak

In an age where it’s becoming increasingly easy to get your hands on the tools necessary to become a great digital artist, it’s also becoming increasingly difficult to stand out from the others. Sebastian Onufszak isn’t having much of a problem with the later. HIs work is bright, vivid and intense. With clients ranging from Ray Ban (as shown above), to Ed Hardy, to Nike, to Jeep and more. His portfolio site, In Graphics We Trust, has just been updated and is definitely worth a look.

Nooka VS Hellz

There’s no doubt Nooka makes some of the coolest watches I have ever seen, and they have added yet another amazing timepiece to their collection. The new limited edition watch is a collaboration with the bad girl streetwear label Hellz. Although the collaboration is with a women’s brand I would say it looks unisex, I know I would wear it.

New 123Klan Website

I have been a big fan of 123klan for a long time now. I really love the way they mesh digital vector with graffiti style art. Their logo and identity work is also some of my favorite stuff out there. It has been a while but they have finally updated their website. They have a new, more simple blog-type site with a bunch of new work including the EP cover and logo for Don Rimini. In celebration of their new website they have teamed up with LOWCLUB to bring you a special hour long mix including some of their favorite tracks.

My Wish List

In order to help my friends and family out with their Christmas shopping I devised a little list of realistic wishables. I know it’s a bit late, but just in case you are able to add a few more things to your own wish list I thought I might share some suggestions of things you might like as well.

At the top of the list is the WESC Stretch Armstrong Bagpipe Headphones. Even though WESC makes quality stuff, at first I had reservations about these. But after listening to them, and then seeing this colorway with the maroon and baby blue I was sold. Read more below to see more goods that topped my list.

Hooray For Earth – Surrounded By Your Friends (Twin Shadow Remix)

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

Twin_Shadow

Twin Shadow has been making some waves throughout the internets lately. I recently purchased his new album Forget, and I must say I quite like it. I am also really liking this remix he has done for Hooray For Earth, who I had never heard of before this song, but will surely be checking them out after hearing it.

Muscles – Girl Crazy Go (Muscles Inception Remix)

Monday, October 18th, 2010

musclesyim

The last I heard of Muscles he had quit the music business because of problems with his label Modular. This disappointed me because I love his music. However, I was happy to see that if the rumors were true at the time he has apparently changed his mind. A new EP by Muscles titled Younger & Immature is due out October 29.

Here’s a remix of the first single from the EP ‘Girl Crazy Go’. Check out the music video for the original version here. From the sounds of it Muscles hasn’t lost his musical touch, or his ego.

Sleigh Bells – Run the Heart (Bassnectar Remix)

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Sleigh+Bells+sleighbells1

Music by Bassnectar isn’t something I would normally post here. For the most part I feel his stuff is for dirty rave hippies, and if you read this blog at all you probably know how I feel about the wobbly bass-heavy Dubstep. That being said this remix done of Sleigh Bells‘ song ‘Run the Heart’ is still bass-heavy, but not completely overboard. It also manages to keep a lot of what makes the original track so good.

Martin Solveig ft. Dragonette – Hello

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

dragonette-martin

Chances are if you spend any amount of time on the internet you have heard ‘Hello’ by Martin Solveig featuring the lovely Dragonette (considering it went number one on Hype Machine). But I couldn’t resist posting this super-fun dance-pop masterpiece. It’s basically impossible not to want to dance to this song. I don’t know a lot about Martin Solveig, but from what I have heard and seen so far I am liking his stuff. Purchase the EP with several remixes on Beatport now.

Millionyoung – Local Joke (Neon Indian Cover)

Friday, October 1st, 2010

million-young

Millionyoung, aka Mike Diaz, is shaping up to be one of my favorite artist of 2010. I really love this cover he has done of Neon Indian’s ‘Local Joke’. He adds his own personality to the song, so much that it sounds as though he could have written it. I am looking forward to a full-length album from him.
