Over the weekend The Very Best unleashed a new mixtape which has some original tunes and “covers” of songs by groups like Knaye West, LCD Soundsystem, Billy Idol, and Kate Bush among others. It’s a really amazing mixtape, and it’s all free at their website for the price of an e-mail.

Boys Noize put together this mixtape featuring remixes of several Scissor Sisters songs and bonus goodies from his own label, adding up to an hour of really fun, weekend-worthy music.

On a personal note: finals are almost over and then I’ll be moving back to Texas, so it will still be a couple of weeks before things get (hopefully!) back to normal posting speed. Thanks for being patient with my little blog.

Dirty South Dance

A-Trak has been a name on the scene since he was a teenager, winning DJ competitions at a very young age. Since then he’s gone on to be the touring DJ for Kanye West, and also is partially responsible for the awesome record label Fool’s Gold. He’s linked to launching the careers of Kid Cudi and Kid Sister just to name a couple, but he’s still making his own remixes that fill dancefloors across the globe.

Today he released a mixtape called Dirty South Dance 2, a sequel to 2007’s Dirty South Dance which featured mash-ups of artists like MIA and Kavinsky. He’s offering up the whole mixtape as a free download over at Bandcamp, and I highly advise that you download it!
