Mehdi posted this track over on his blog. I like the bass on it a lot. I think he does a really good job of fitting the music to the vocals which some remixers just can’t seem to do well.

soldouttYou might remember me having mentioned Soldout before, and this past week I got a remix of their song “The Last Ride” from their newest album Cuts. Chris Price doesn’t drastically change the song, but changes the feel of it, lifting it from the murk with some skittery percussion and brighter sounding synth lines.

Infinite Summer (Mix)

infinitesummerSo the other day I posted some songs I called the Infinite Summer playlist. I’d expressed my frustration from trying to mix the songs together to make a proper mix, but things just kept going wrong. At least one person who read the post thought I was challenging you, the reader, to make a proper mix of the songs. So he did it and sent it to me.

Señor Cisco did a much better job than I ever could have done. I’m actually very envious of his mixing abilities. I should just lay down the Virtual DJ and call it a day. Anyway, here’s the mp3 of his mixed version.

♫ Señor Cisco – Infinite Summer Mix

Teki Latex – Go Go Go
Sneaky Soundsystem – Because Of You People Say I’m Crazy
Empire of the Sun – We Are the People (Shazam Remix)
N.A.S.A. – Gifted (Treasure Fingers Epic Wave Remix)
LCD Soundsystem – Time to Get Away (Gucci Soundsystem Remix)
Holy Ghost! – Hold On (Black Mazego Groove)
YACHT – Summer Song
Cut Copy – Far Away (Bag Radiers Remix)

Go listen to his other mixes on his MySpace, they’re awesome!

Holy Ghost! is offering up their new song “I Will Come Back” as a 320 kbps mp3 at Green Label Sound. Get it here. They’re going to be re-making New Order’s video “Confusion” for the video of “I Will Come Back.” See the original below.

Mmm pizza.

Okay so I don’t think any of the music in the trailer is from Arcade Fire, but they’re doing the score for this movie. Cool? Cool.

I Got a Lot…of Broken Amps

Uh oh news from Mika Miko:

Hey! So as you all may have heard, my amp was broken in Brooklyn. Some asshole decided to spill their whiskey all over it before we played and I unknowingly turned it on and blew out all the output tubes and short circuited the board (????).

So basically it cost a FORTUNE ($300 bones) to repair on the road, which sucks because I just spent 200 dollars before we left getting it fixed. SO IT SUCKS!!!

PLEASE buy our merch when you come to our shows, dude! COME TO OUR SHOWS, PERIOD!
It would help out so much!!!! Or even if you want to donate a dollar because you feel my tour pain, that would be great, too. <3333333333

Thank you for reading this.

In keeping with the cool DJ mixes as of late, I got these two in my inbox from a couple of guys who call themselves Pretty Girls and Lasers. They’re only ten minute mixes, but pack a lot of punch into those ten minutes. These are good mixes for someone who can’t dedicate an hour or thirty minutes to a mix, but still want to hear some new stuff. These guys add their own special twist to the songs too, making them even more enjoyable.

♫ A Taste of Lasers #1

Digitalism – Taken Away (Myrone Aiden Remix)
Thomas Schumacher – Heat it Up
Black Kids – I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You (The Twelves Remix)
Cindy Lauper – Into the Nightlife (Laidback Luke Remix)
Kudu – Let’s Finish (Sinden Remix)
N.A.S.A. – Music (LA Riots Remix)

♫ A Taste of Lasers #2

Coeur De Pirate – Comme Des Enfants (Le Matos Andy Carmichael Remix)
Lily Allen – The Fear (Stonebridge Explicit Club Mix)
Yelle – Ce Jeu (The Twelves Remix)
Autokratz – Always More (Yuksek Remix)
Pony Pony Run Run – Hey You (DJ Vanish Remix)
Shazam – Pool Party
R. Kelly – She’s Got That Vibe (Sickboy Remix)
Justice – DVNO (LA Riots Remix)



Aeroplane, one of the blogosphere’s hottest DJ duos put up this mix of their top 9 songs for June and thought you guys definitely need to hear it if you haven’t yet. These guys are definitely going to be a force to be reckoned with. I’m posting the whole mix and the songs I have from it.
