Yeah yeah, i know. Amy Meredith? Really? They’re not the greatest band out there, but then they do sound a bit like Gyroscope, and Gyroscope are actually kinda cool. Their tunes are ok, kinda catchy etc. But you wouldn’t want to readily admit to it.
Anywho, what makes this post good is the two remixes that were sent maamf’s way. First up is one by UK’s Visitor. These guys really make something of the vocals in the original. Turn it from an indie pop track into this soaring Falke(ish) 6 minute tune that kinda kills. Little cheese, but, hey, who doesn’t like a bit of cheese once in a while??!
The second remix of Young At Heart comes courtesy of Aeons. This remix kills it too. Maamf has a bit of a love affair going with Aeons, and this one doesn’t disappoint. The Aeons boys can definitely take a track and make it sound like them, which I love. Has the Aeons sound right across it. This one is minus the cheese.
fuck it’s good to see some local djs doing some mega cool shit. Like, it’s bloody awesome.
Melbourne kid Airwolf has put his electro/funk touch to a few tracks. And yes. Man!
First up, he’s done the two AEONS singles that they’ve got on their latest EP (Have you checked out that EP yet? Hope you have. Jump HERE is you missed it). He’s taken the clothes off Beyond The Satellites, touched it, and laid it down to rest a bit (Translation: He’s stripped it back, made it soar a little more). Really great remix. He’s also had his way with Where The Sky Meets The Sea. This is mean. No stripping here. If anything, he’s added clothes! Well…added layers. picked up the pace a little too. Bam!
Second. He’s sexily discofied DCUP‘s To Be In Love. Great remix and funks shit up!
Sydney kids Aeons are at it again. They’ve just finished their debut EP entitled Beyond The Satellites and expect it to explode…well…not actually explode coz that would be bad n shit. But you know, expect them to get big with this EP. (and before you ask, no i’m not calling them fatties.)
The dudes have a bit of a Presets sound in that it’s big, a little operatic, especially the title track. It also has this dirty kinda sound, especially with the effect at the end of the opening synth motif. And if that’s not enough, the EP has been produced by fellow Sydney kid super good producer Diamond Cut.
So what about this EP though… The title track is an obvious standout, purely because it lifts you up n shit. The other tracks are equally as sweet. There’s this big sense of familiarity about the EP which is definitely a good thing. Via Lactea seems to be an amalgamation (have always wanted to get that word in on maamf…) of their other work, but still manages to stand on it’s own two feet. The other track you probably haven’t heard, Raise Your Flag is almost a little Muse-ish. Still has some great synth lines…and it kinda rocks out!
You guys can grab the EP for FREE from their MySpace from June 18.
Anyway, check out the title track just below as well as a remix of Beyond The Satellites by another Sydney dude Frames.
ok. Aeons. Two dudes out of Sydney producing some pretty killer remixes and originals. They’ve just remixed Lisa Mitchell’s latest single Oh Hark! and, well, it’s really really nice. A few remixes of this track have surfaced in the past week or so but I think this one just tips the others at the post.
The Aeons boys have also just finished an EP, with production coming from none other than Diamond Cut. Expect some pretty big things from these guys. They’ve got it pretty down pat.
