GOTYE + M-PHAZES
Melbourne Hip Hop royalty fella and international goto man, M-Phazes has remixed Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra). Apparently he wasn’t going to touch this, but then he heard all the remixes out there already, realised they suck, so he had a shot.
GLAD HE DID.
THIS IS SAWEET!

GOTYE + KIMBRA + FAUX PAS
wowz. Two of my fave acts combining for a super tune! Faux Pas (or Tim Shiel) and Gotye.
First off, Gotye’s album is amazeballs. The man is quite simply a genius. There’s no two ways about that.
Second, Faux Pas is equally genius in his approach. Tim actually plays in Gotye’s live band, so the two have something in common. This remix is an official one, and it kills. Especially that beginning. Completely taking you by surprise. And the use of that silence reminds me heaps of the original, silence is definitely something Gotye uses so bloody well in his music.
Other than that crazy opening, the track is a little nuts, full of vocal cut ups and riffs going off left right and centre. To say this is good…well…that be understatement!
