  1. Sex Beat (Remix) by Two Lone Swordsmen


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I’ve never really been a fan of The Gun Club but I do love their track Sex Beat. The LA punk band really delivers on this track. What I really love though are the remakes by Two Lone Swordsmen especially the remix of their version.

    The vocals by the The Lone Swordsmen are dark, moody and the beats are fast and pounding. This track is not for your typical club but I could see it in an Industrial or darker clubs out there. What do you think?

    The original is off The Two Lone Swordsmen’s album called From The Double Gone Chapel but the remix of course is from the Sex Beat single. Their sound on this album is more dub and seventies sounding than their previous efforts. Two Lone Swordsmen is off of the famous Warp Records! A who’s who of dark electronica. Cool stuff.

    Gun Club doing Sex Beat live on stage … not my cup of tea but still love the original of this song.

  2. Ring My Bell (Miss X Remix) by Miss X

    Here’s a very popular 70s disco classic Ring My Bell by Anita Ward that’s been taken and given the upbeat deep bass treatment by Miss X. I don’t know much about this band and I certainly can’t find any info about them online. Their album is available as a download on Amazon, iTunes and eMusic which is where I downloaded.

    I specifically downloaded the entire album because of this remake and have been enjoying the remainder of the tracks. It’s a great mix of electro pop tracks in the vein of 80s synth pop. Definitely in the vein of Richard X and similar artists. All fun but definitely the track that stands out for me is Ring My Bell. There are some really cute sounding beats on here as well. Some vocals and some instrumental cuts.

    Check it out and download from eMusic. Link to sign up for free 25 downloads here. It’s worth it for sure.

    Out of all the great disco singles I think Ring My Bell is certainly one of my all time favorites and I was very happy to hear this remix/remake by Miss X.

  3. Beneath Me (Reggae Do Morro by Plastique de Rêve) by Dancepig

    Here’s a really fun, upbeat and energetic remake, remix of this little known track called Beneath Me by Dancepig. This remix basically takes the beat from the track called No Coke by Dr. Alban and loops it around until you get the Tone Loc Wild Thing sample kick in. It’s quite fun and I actually love it and even more than the original version. 

    Check it out as I think you will like this. I love taking originals and totally screwing with the tracks and coming up with really unique remix. The remixes are from the EP/Single to Beneath Me from Dancepig.

  4. Personal Jesus (JLF Extended Remix) by John Lord Fonda

    Depeche Mode again? Yes! I think the best covers and remixes are of Depeche Mode songs. One of my all time favorite bands and I love it when they remix their own tracks and allow for others to cover or remake them. This one’s a really nice one! It’s by John Lord Fonda from France. It’s been given the energized dark and sleazy electro industrial touch to it with elements of the original version from Depeche Mode. Including the heavy breathing sounds and the “Reach Out And Touch Faith” lyrics.  

    Prior to discovering this remake I had never heard of John Lord Fonda? Do you folks know of this guy? His album DeBaser 2 which is the accompanying album to DeBaser. Both are great and worth owning if you want new music to discover and check out. If you’re at all into Vitalic (one of my favorites), The Hacker (another of my favorites) do check out John Lord Fonda as I think you’ll dig his music.

  5. Think Like Us (Alter Ego Remix) by Solvent

    After four years I still dig this track. From the legendary label Ghostly International this is a great electro/synth pop track and the remix by Alter Ego rocks. Alter Ego in top form here and this the original and the remix are certainly worth owning and worth having in any collection.

  6. The Windmills Of Your Mind by Orange Factory

    I just love this remake of the classic Noel Harrison track from the film The Thomas Crown Affair. This is a nice midtempo piece by Orange Factory a downtempo chillout act. They are not very well known as I can’t find much information about them but they are from the Irma Music label in Bologna Italy. One of my favorite labels and this remake is pretty darn good. It’s all instrumental just like it should be. Nice background music you can chill too. Although I love the Dusty Springfield version which I have below for you all to compare to. What do you think? In the film The Thomas Crown Affair (the original version with Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway) was an instrumental piece. Later Dusty Springfield had sung it which became a pretty nice hit for her.

    The Windmills Of Your Mind was written by Alan Bergman, Marilyn Bergman and Michel LeGrand with the French title being Les moulins de mon cœur.

    BTW Sting did a cover version of The Windmills Of Your Mind for the 1999 remake of The Thomas Crown Affair.
