remix that #7

It has been ages since i’ve done one of these posts. The last couple of months have seen the blog grow a hell of a lot, and it’s getting a little difficult to stay on top of all the top tunes that are sent to the inbox. If you reckon you got what it takes to help me out, send me an email! You’ll find the email address just to your left. Preferably someone local (Melbourne), but am open to other cities! But keep it in Australia. Anyway, if you’re interested, email me and ill let you know exactly what’s involved.

Back onto the music though. There’s been a few remixes that have come through of late that have been a little on the high rotation. First up…

This came in a while ago. It’s really good too. Put’s the original to good use. Elite Force (or Simon Shackleton to his mates…i imagine) has just done some big festivals shows through Australia and finished most of his sets with his remix of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs classic Maps. It’s pretty big and driving and [insert another word for this awesome remix here]. Turn it up.

Elite Force – Maps (Elite Force Re-Fix)

K. Next up is a remix of a new track by Sydney kids Teenagersintokyo. The remix is by UK gothpopers The Horrors. I don’t know which is better though…the original or the remix! Teenagersintokyo are releasing the single next month (Feb 15 to be precise). You can check out the original over at their MySpace.

Teenagersintokyo – Peter Pan (The Horrors Remix)

Last on the list is a band I posted about earlier on in the week. Get Stellar are Adelaidian and they’re pretty damn good. Check out my original post for more info on the band but I just couldn’t resist posting the GLOVES remix of their track The Moment. I originally said that the Def Starr remix just tips it at the post…but given that maamf seems to be going a little crazy for GLOVES.

Get Stellar – The Moment (GLOVES Remix)

K. That’ll do the ramble for now


moment in a streetcar

ok. This dropped in the inbox the other day with the words “Here’s a track for you that’s not on Modular or Bang Gang”. Bloody relieved too! Don’t get me wrong, even though i did say that i’m going to (try) and do less posts on bands/acts that aren’t on Modular or Bang Gang, it was just a relief to see that there is some good indie electro disco (whatever other genre you want to include) that isn’t on the two aforementioned labels.

Get Stellar are from Radelaide. And you know what? I’m ok with that. The Swiss are from Adelaide too so I’m starting to come around to it. Albeit a little tiny bit slowly. Anyway, these guys put this really funky bass line into their track The Moment. It get’s a little slap (think Seinfeld theme) at parts too which just ups the funky to 11 or whatever the disco/funk equivalent is. The other thing I really like about this track is the vocals. They’re not amazing, but they just work. It seems as though a lot of this disco electro stuff shies away from vocals. These dudes do it well.

Anyway, check em out. There’s also some pretty great remixes that come along with the track. My fave would have to be the Def Starr Remix. GLOVES also does one too…but I think the Def Starr remix just tips it at the post. Big call I know…and I’m sorry GLOVES.
