Health’s We Are Water (Azari & III Remix)

Michelle Wilding Reader Find

By Michelle Wilding in New Music on Friday 9 April 2010

I adore the band Health and am left fascinated by this glamorously bouncy We Are Water remix by Canadian duo Azari & III, who have taken it to outer house-space. It’s pure 80s late night disco at its finest. Ghost Buster meets Short Circuit, anyone?

Classixx remixes Groove Armada

Casper Johansson Reader Find

By Casper Johansson in New Music on Tuesday 23 February 2010

Remixer Classixx has produced a playful version of the new Groove Armada track, Paper Romance, replacing the hard four-to-the-floor of the original track with bubbling synths, skittering drums, and delicate, swooning guitars that bring out the passionate vocal takes from SaintSavior and Fenech-Soler. [Listen to the Classixx remix of Groove Armada]

Pants On The Ground creates new ten minute star

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Trends on Thursday 21 January 2010

Sheez, they move quick in remix-land, that mythical place where cheesy beats and hooky lyrics combine to create ear worms that will stick with you forever. Be warned! This remix of the Larry Platt American Idol scat is one of the best, especially if you’ve spent any time riding the subways of New York City.

Muscles’ Guns Babes Lemonade

Ben Lee Reader Find

By Ben Lee in New Music on Tuesday 20 January 2009

Muscles is doing a remix of my single I Love Pop Music and I’m really excited to hear what he comes up with. He’s a new electronic artist from Australia and he’s full of piss and vinegar. He’s got that youthful Manchester-esque arrogance that makes rock n’ roll sound life-changing, all set to a surprisingly […]

Download the new The Asteroids Galaxy Tour single

Casper Johansson Reader Find

By Casper Johansson in New Music on Thursday 11 December 2008

Stylistically The Asteroids Galaxy Tour is hard to pin down, except to say that they throw one hell of a party – which may be why those music-loving folks at Apple chose them to help sell what’s being touted as ‘the funnest iPod ever’. Sun-drenched pop melodies collide with Technicolor dreams, anchored by the band’s […]

Friendly Fires’ Paris: the Aeroplane Remix

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Thursday 4 December 2008

Hmmm, I don’t know if it’s the extra strong coffee I’m gulping down, or that faintest slither of feel good sunshine that’s creeping through the blinds, but this song is making me feel mildly euphoric, and that kinda works right now. Play it loud. Play it through headphones. And imagine you’re decked out in day […]

Diplo remixes Santogold

Huna Amweero Reader Find

By Huna Amweero in New Trends on Thursday 21 August 2008

Diplo’s most recent venture — titled Top Ranking — takes Santogold’s glittery debut and smashes into a whole lotta dub. The superbly quirky musical conglomeration reworks Santogold’s weird pop sound with some fantastic dub tracks, with Diplo adding some 80s pop, 60s soul, punk and Top-40 gloss just for kicks. If dub is not your […]

Sydney pop starlets, Teenagers in Tokyo, have just released a new remix of their track End it Now dolled up and throttled into shape by local DJ group, Bagraiders. It’s as fun as a triple shot espresso with a dash of laphroaig.

SoundAffects: Brazil

Francis Andrews Reader Find

By Francis Andrews in New Music on Tuesday 10 June 2008

UK-based charity Bottletop have teamed up with Mr Bongo Recordings, roped in the likes of Fatboy Slim, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly and Adam Freeland, and delivered a sizzling platter of Brazilian standards and remixes.

The Shakes’ Sister self-doubt

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Friday 12 October 2007

Oh man, close your eyes if you will and transport yourself to a place far, far away; where disco is in, polyester is up, and everyone bows long and deep to the gravitational pull of the almighty afro. Sister Self-Doubt by The Shakes takes me there. It takes me front and centre, feeling that slippery, […]

The boy who ran away

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Friday 29 June 2007

Where would we be without synths and drum machines? Probably still listening to Grateful Dead jams in the alleyways of Height-Asbury. Done well, the remix is a wonderful thing. Case in point is Royksopp’s rendering of the Kings of Convenience track I Don’t Know What I Can Save You From. And then there’s Riton’s version […]
