New Clockwork Mixes

Clockwork just hit me up with three fantastic new remixes, of Basshunter, Brian Cox, and Bloc Party. Since my first Clockwork post got killed off my the DMCA, lemme throw a little knowledge at you. Clockwork is a 17yr old dj/producer from LA, whos been dropping sweet tracks for a while. Kids these days, right? Anyways, these mixes hit pretty heavy with roaring basslines, the kind you want to jump around to in a packed club. These are definitely worth checking out.

The Virgins

Ive been really into the Virgins recently, and there have been quite a few quality remixes put out recently. I hope they can get an elbow in on the ridiculous flood of Phoenix remixes that have been flooding hypemachine/my itunes. Get over 1901 people, sure its a great song and all, but it doesn't need a billion remixes a la D.A.N.C.E.

Anyways, i digress. The Virgins are a NY based 3 piece, playing rock/funk/r&b ish stuff. They put out a LP in June, but ive just recently seen a few good remixes hit the blogworld, especially off the track 'Rich Girls'. Check out these two by the Beatards and Le Castle Vania.

1901 Remixes by Binary

Binary heavy hitters Fabian and Nightwaves just put out remixes of Phoenix's gem 1901. They totally shift the production to a more electro feel, à la typical dreamy synth production that we hear from the Binary guys. Part electro pop, part disco jam. All worth checking out.

Super Behind

So ive got tons of stuff sitting in my inbox, ive had something of a busy week. Its finally warmed up a little in vermont, and i managed to get the first sunburn of the year by sitting outside for 5 hours in 40 degree weather today. its amazing what you think of as 'warm' after a coldass winter.

I got this mixtape 'Heads Up Houston' a few days ago, with some really cool stuff on it. Its from this cat Dave Wrangler and features a few originals and some sweet remixes from dudes big and small. If ya dig it, check him at SXSW this week :

La Chansons

Despite not using the right French article in their name, La Chansons has blown me away. They hit me up with a cover of Marcy Playground's 'Sex and Candy', probably one of my fav 90s songs. La Chansons is a married Atlanta couple who have just recently started putting out music and playing gigs. Definitely worth keeping an eye on. Peep the cover:

No, im not talking about sex. Im talking about Kinky, a mexican electropop outfit who just released their third LP, Barracuda. I was lucky enough to grab the copy they sent WRMC, and have had it on repeat for the last couple days. I want to share the whole album with ya, but, unfortunatly, that is soemwhat unethical. So, ive chosen a couple fantastic tracks, but want to qualify them with a reccomendation that you GET THE ALBUM. NOW.

While digging through the albums that were sent to my college radio station, i hit upon a gem in Myka9's 1969. Apparently he used to ghostwrite for NWA, and id believe it. His shit is tight, and his flow is dope. Definitely worth scoping out.

Smell Yo Dick!

The Hood Internet just hit up a mix of the Junior Boys and Riskay. Smell Yo Dick is simply infinitely replayable for me, and this remix is pretty fantastic. Definitely worth checking out.
