cutcopyknightlifeI love Cut Copy. Their oddly constructed pop music is indescribably fresh and well indescribable. This is because they sample generations at exhausting awesome rates (90s, 80s, 60s psychedelics with the original “So Haunted”). Their album In Ghost Colours is fantastic (#2 on top albums this year) but often the remixes of their tunes don’t do them justice. This however is a dreamy disco recovery built on a warm melody. Basically Knightlife  took the end of the original “So Haunted” and made it into it’s own song…. with impressive results

I love this guy. He embodies the sunshine pop of the feel good 80s. It’s so sexy, if I could have sex with it, not only would I, I would like ask to meet it’s parents after. And I bet they would be awesome… and from Europe too!

I think that if M83 liked to dance, this is a song he would come up with.

I think I used that star background in some of my images. Anyways, the original by Van She is awesome. A fantastic throw back to perfected 80s pop. All you need is the bass to feel the grove, and this remix really doesn’t stray away from the goodies within the song. The bass is louder, and the swooning feeling is more prevalent. The remix really just enhances the songs dance tendencies. And isn’t that a good thing? Yes, it is.

Russ Chimes

This by no means a new leak or whatever. But about half a year a go, the great Russ Chimes did what he does best. “Correct” average songs. He saved ‘Fancy Footwork’ by Chromeo (thats for another blog day) and can do no wrong. Feel the good warmness of dance/funk. His songs promote this Wall of Sound idea, that music is built buy textures and almost a blurring of sounds (when done correctly as here, it is beautiful). 



Body Into Use – The Millioners (Russ Chimes Remix) 

Bonus, the most accessible and straightforward mix. I fantasize about performing this song at my high school battle of the bands. It would be the last song naturally, and we would win the competition simply because this song kicks ass. There is no singing so i can be the lead singer. My fantasy hasn’t decided who plays what other instruments.


College – Teenage Color (Russ Chimes Very Sexy and Amazing Mix)

This song will actually be appearing in a movie. I can’t say which one now, but uh don’t be hard. The movie was difficult to make apparently and the stunts were tough. I will say no more on that… for now
