  1. Shiny Toy Guns Cover Peter Schilling With Major Tom (Coming Home)


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Here’s a pretty darn cool remake of one of my favorite songs from the late 80s! I used to hear this on Live 105 all the time when it became a hit and was a fan of Peter Schilling’s album A Different Story so I was happy to have heard that there was a darn cool remake for this song. Cool of a remake to make it into a Lincoln commercial. Well Lincoln I don’t really care about but the Shiny Toy Guns version is certainly bringing back memories of the late 80s. What do you think of the two versions?

    Prior to this song I hadn’t heard of Shiny Toy Guns much in fact not at all but because of this I had to go download their album Girls Le Disko. It’s certainly worth owning! Good enough is a live German version of the Peter Schilling song below.

The video is fun too. Enjoy both versions original and the update below.

  3. Sumo Productions Samples Kraftwerk With Trainspotting


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Ran across this track recently in my iTunes library. The track is called Trainspotting and it’s off of the album The Man Who Escaped. I don’t know much or anything about Sumo Productions except that it’s an Italian electronic production team off of Cavernjatt Records. Don’t know much about Cavernjatt Records either.

    Anyhow this track Trainspotting does a pretty good job of sampling the Kraftwerk track Trans Europe Express. Can’t figure it out if they have sampled Afrika Bambaata’s Planet Rock or It’s a direct sample of Kraftwerk’s Trans Europe Express. What do you think?

    The rest of the album is more chill, sexy house grooves but this Trainspotting track reminds me more of the late 90s early 2000′s. True?

  4. John Dahlbäck Remixes Sinfonia Della Notte by Dennis Ferrer


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Impressive US House track by Dennis Ferrer really didn’t need the remix treatment as the original is awesome as it is. I first heard of Sinfonia Della Notte by Dennis Ferrer off of the House Masters: Dennis Ferrer album last year and immediately fell in love with it. When I heard about this remix I was hastily interested in checking it out but unfortunately it fell flat compared to the original. I love John Dahlback’s music hands down but this remix he did is quite weak. Check it out what do you think?

  5. Something Good Can Work (The Twelves Remix) by Two Door Cinema Club


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Loving this track Something Good Can Work by Two Door Cinema Club lately and they really remind me of Phoenix! Don’t you think? Funny that both Phoenix and Two Door Cinema Club are on the same damn label, Glassnote. As well they have some relationship with the awesome French label Kitsune. Two Door Cinema Club are from Ireland and not from France like Phoenix.

    Both the original version and the remix version are awesome. Check them out below.

    Tom Middleton does a slamming remix of Orbitals killer classic techno trance track from 1992. The original is still classic but Middleton breathes complete new life into this track. Released last year as part of Orbital’s Orbital 20 greatest hits package.

  8. Telonius Covers Ian Dury & The Blockheads With Hit Me!

    I’ve always been a huge fan of Ian Dury’s disco punk hit Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick and when I heard that Telonius has a version of it I was sure enough in a hurry to check it out. No surprise here it’s a great remake and the remixes are pretty darn cool too. You can always count on Gomma label from Germany and their electro techno dance music. Love them and I’ll keep listening to everything they release.

    I’ve actually got the original version below as well as the remix by Bottin I’m really digging lately. I love Bottin’s very spacey synth disco style. It’s reminding me of 80s Italo Disco. Anyway what do you think of these? Do they sound like the original by Ian Dury? Please comment!
