ok, so to say that Kimbra had a big 2011 is a small tiny understatement. And to say that Beni had a big 2011 is also a small tiny understatement.

Kimbra’s latest single Two Way Street has been remixed by Beni and it is all kinds of great. I love the fact that Kimbra’s vocals are so loose on top of Beni’s strict straight beat. Part of that is definitely Kimbra’s amazing sense of phrasing…but I also think Beni’s got an absolutely killer ear – it’s this contrast that makes this track what it is.

Anyway, you can download below. And if you want to see Kimbra in action, check out the new live vid she did at Sing Sing down here in Melbs. Nice!

Kimbra – Two Way Street (Beni Remix)




ok. So tonight, VIVID LIVE begins. I am a little excited. I also live in Melbourne. And this is a two week festival. So, i’m heading up tonight and heading back Monday (Can’t afford to stay the full two weeks ya know.)

For me, it’s going to be part get away/part excitement times. We’re checking out the Leave Them All Behind party tonight which features Bag Raiders, Azari & III, Beni, Softwar, The Swiss and Softblow DJs. LINEUP ANYONE??!!

Then on Sunday night we’re checking out Architecture In Helsinki. That should be really really really great and am psyched.

So, sure, I miss out on The Avalanches, and it was a toss up between Cut Copy and Architecture in Helsinki on Sunday (I’ve seen Cutters a heap of times and I’ve never seen AiH live before). And then there’s Van She who are playing at Sneaky Sundays on Sunday afternoon. Kinda wish we booked tix to that, but then again, there’s no point in going if it’s gonna clash with AiH.

But, yes. Am still friggin happy to be heading up. The Opera House is an amazing venue, so this should be a goodun!!

To celebrate, we got a few tracks and clips just below for you.

remix that #6


It’s been a while since i’ve posted some decent remixes. it’s also been a while since i’ve even done a post at all! the last week has been a bit of crazyness with an essay. basically i didn’t realise how time consuming it would be and yeah, it took me forever to finish. it’s done now though!!

Anyway, onto the remix’s. They’ve all been floating around for a while.

First up is BURNS. I’ve posted about this dude a few times now. The song is great. The remix kills it!

BURNS – In My Eyes (His Majesty Andre Remix)

Next up is a remix of Sweet Disposition…a track that many many many people love. I was hesitant at first, but this one is a grower. Different to the original!

The Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition (Alan Wilkis Remix)

Next up is a great track…and an even better remix of it. Local dude Beni has been doing his thing for a while. His solo stuff is sounding pretty fine! Props to some of the Bang Gang fellas for getting their grubby hands on this one.

Beni – Maximus (Andee & Ooh Ee’s Blue Version)

Finally, it’s Like Woah! from Sydney. Don’t really know much about these guys other than they’re featured on the new Bang Gang 12″ comp. More local fellas Ted & Francis (same guys/different name) take on remix duties on this one. Check it!

K. That’ll do the ramble for now.
