  2. Moonbootica Cover House Of Pain’s Jump Around!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is a pretty awesome electrofied remake of the House Of Pain hip hop classic from the early 90s! Dark, sleazy electro beats with robotic vox. It’s quite nice and I love it when they take such a classic track from a genre and remake the hell out of it which is what Moonbootica have done here. Good for them! I first heard of Moonbootica with a remix of Tessio the Luomo track from 2001 or so. Later they exploded with a remix of Mundian To Bach Ke the Punjabi MC bhangra hit. So they’ve been remixing for a while now and this track is certainly a solid remake. This remake goes back to 2007 so it’s already a bit old but still fresh sounding. As we approach the 20th anniversary of the House of Pain classic Jump Around this will make do for us as it’s certainly the future in sound.

    If you like their sound you should also check out their release Men Of The Future. It’s quite a nice electro/disco cut and certainly worth hearing it on repeat. It’s quite the sexy, late night groove.

  3. The Two. Fifteens – … (Free EP)


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I’m proud to present you with this FREE EP from The Two. Fifteens, a duo out of Cali that combines Hip-Hop, Dub, IDM and other abstract frequencies into a truly futuristic Thanksgiving dinner. This four track *and one bonus* EP is a premiere to their Effective When Used After… LP, and is a great example of what happens when two individuals aren’t afraid to truly express themselves and their influences. Kudos to Darkie (yes, that Darkie) on the cover art, and for the mighty Daddy Kev’s mastering job – they told me that his tweaking really opened up their creations – I’d say rock this in your headphones, but the depth of these subs really belong in your whip!

  4. Add SUV (Armand Van Helden Vocal Remix) by Uffie Featuring Pharrell


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 




    Armand Van Helden is in top form here and he’s really back now, like it was in 96/97 when he did the countless awesome remixes for Tori Amos, New Order, Jimmy Somerville, Apollo 440, CJ Bolland, Sash!, Snap, Nuyorican Soul and more and more and more. This remix though is quite the hottest thing I’ve heard for a long ass time when it comes to remixes. It’s got loads of energy and I love Pharrell’s vocals on here in combination with Uffie’s. The original by hottie Uffie is your typical electro hip hop rap/vocal pop cut but this remix delivers 1000%. Right on Armand! Original version from Uffie’s Sex Dreams And Denim Jeans CD that’s just come out.

    You be the judge .. what do you think?

    Kurtis Blow remixed in sexy downtempo style here by Dublex and it’s certainly a good remix. I love the original 80s hip hop track The Breaks by Kurtis Blow but this remix by Dublex can be played in a chill out set or as background music for a cocktail party. This is off of two remix digital singles and both sets are worth owning for those of you that like remixes. Remixers include De-Phazz, Timewriter and of course Dublex Inc. The remixes sets also include a millennium remix which is just an updated recording of the original. Check them all out at Amazon links below … well worth owning the entire set.

    This is a pretty darn good track from Bob Sinclar off of his Western Dream album which is really fun very pop friendly which is what this track is. Rock This Party samples Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) by C+C Music Factory. I always thought C+C Music Factory was the mass produced and marketed Black Box so I was never really into their music as I was into Black Box but this sample of Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) is sampled perfectly in this song. Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) is off of C+C Music Factory’s Gonna Make You Sweat album. Check out both versions out below … and comment.

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


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    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.

  11. Que Sera by Wax Tailor


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I love this remake of Que Sera by Wax Tailor! Taking an old song especially like an old cheerful, bright and happy Doris Day song and remaking it in this style is awesome.

    Wax Tailor is a French Trip-Hop/Hip Hop producer/artists that’s released several eps and albums and this is one of my favorite remakes as of recently – last couple of years. He’s worked with folks like Sharon Jones and Ursula Rucker. This track comes off of his first full album Tales From The Forgotten Melodies. Check it out as it’s a great release. For true Trip-Hop and Downtempo fans with Hip Hop flavor!

  12. Crazy In Love by Patrick & Eugene

    Ok this is real fun version of the great Beyonce track Crazy In Love. This version of Beyonce’s track is off of their album Postcard From Summerisle – and it’s a really fun album. There’s also a remake of Can’t Get You Out Of My Head by Kylie among other original tracks like The Birds & The Bees – check below for the video on youtube.

    It’s definitely a fun album and worth checking out to discover something new.

  13. Wild Thing (Peaches Extended Remix) by Tone-Loc


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Here’s a really fun remix of the classic 1980′s hip-hop song. Peaches has taken the song and added electro rock touches to it and also added her nasty vocals to it. I think it really works. The only prob I have with this recording is that there’s some really odd audio probs with it. I’ve downloaded the entire album Rmxxology both from Amazon MP3 and emusic and there seems to be some clipping. And it’s not only this recording it’s the entire album. Maybe the audio clipping is for effect? Anyone know?

    It kind of spoils the music but the remix is still fun and I love both the original and the Peaches remix. Peaches rocks! Don’t you think so?

  14. Hot In Herre by Tiga


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I like to take a hip hop song like Hot In Herre by Nelly and make it a bassy electronic vocal track. This is what Tiga has done with Hot In Herre. I really was not into the original by Nelly until I heard the Tiga version so then I started listening to the Nelly version I started liking it.

    Tiga has hired Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters to do the vocals on this track and I think it’s quite perfect. Check out the really creepy video with the string dolls of the song. It’s fun but very creepy to me. Remember chuckie?

    Anyway what do you think of the two versions? What do you like and not like about them?

  15. Life Of A Heartbreaker (Featuring Electrosexual) by Scream Club


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Check this out … Scream Club haven taken the classic new wave synth pop track Smalltown Boy by Bronksi Beat and sampled it as the background of their electro, hip hop rap dance tracks Life Of A Heartbreaker. The indie band

    It actually works quite nicely here. The chick rapping is fast enough and it’s a great touch for the sped up fast paced casio synth sounding Bronski Beat sample. You think?

    The rest of the album is lesbian themed electro rap which also includes guest vocals by Peaches among others but Life Of A Heartbreaker (Featuring Electrosexual) is the stand out cut for me as it contains one of my favorite synth pop tracks from the 80s.

  16. Fools Gold (Grooverider’s Mix) by The Stone Roses


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Here’s a great remix from almost 10 years ago (boy time flies!) by way of Grooverider – the jazzy drum and bass maestro known for his release Mysteries Of Funk from 1998. He’s taken the classic indie, Manchester or shall we say Madchester sound song Fools Gold from 1989 and made it a faster, club friendlier track. Fools Gold in it’s original form is already an indie dance classic along with tracks like Loaded and Come Together by Primal Scream and Step On and Bob’s Yer Uncle by Happy Mondays.

    Fools Gold was the stand out upbeat track from the The Stone Roses – they are known for I Want To Be Adored but Fools Gold was the big, extra long dance cut off of the mostly indie, modern rock acts releases from the late 80s.

    This remix is proof that remixing music is an art form and Grooverider has taken a classic modern rock track and elevated it to a brand new electronic, drum and bass level.

    This remix is from the great series of mostly hip hop tracks called Old School Vs. New School which also included remixes of tracks by such artists as A Tribe Called Quest, Whodini and DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince
    Check them out and let me know what you think. Feel free to comment.
