Song: Thriller (Villains Too Tight Pants remix)
Artist: Michael Jackson

The greatest remix of Thriller I have EVER heard. Guaranteed to get you freakier than a werewolf bar mitzvah.

okay time to break a cardinal rule

These three remixes are so incredible I couldn't help but dump them all at once on y'all. No sense in waiting out one-per-day for three days, so without further ado, here are:

- a lovely remix of an old favorite
- a long and winding Justice-esque tour d'electrohouse
- and this unrelenting MC rapping over remixed revivalist Afrobeat, contains amazing syncopation and Seinfeld references (1:50 - 2:03, hear it to believe).

Enjoy!

Song: Breathe (Ultra Tiger remix)
Artist: Telepopmusik

Song: Paramount (The Fraction remix)
Artist DJ DLG

Song: Chicago Falcon (The Washington Square Lads & Mark Ronson remix)
Artist: Budos Band

Here's something special from an excellent album I stumbled across on Oink: A remix one of my favorite Avalanches tracks. Who says you can't groove on a Monday night?

Song: Find Love
Artist: Clem Snide

My fifth time looping this, I knew it had qualified for a plug. This is a wonderful acoustic song I found over at Said the Gramaphone, with pleasant chords and achingly beautiful delivery. Makes me crave a mint julep and a warm body to share it with.

Song: Hallelujah (club mix)
Artist: Happy Mondays
Album: 12" single [1989]

A club classic that fueled the early waves of rave culture in Manchester. Used to great effect in the film 24 Hour Party People. I dare you not to fall in love with that cheap piano. My god.

we're gonna have a night tonight, we're gonna have a guyz nite.

song: it's raining beer (in america)
artist: guyz nite

switching up gears, from the sugary sweet 60's girl group revivals, to music for real men.

peopple who read my LJ already know about them, but to those who don't, guyz nite, a band out of nyc is like the love child of the man show and journey. i'm trying to find a way to describe their style and sound, but...

...what better way to show what they are and represent than with pictures?Collapse )

with guyz nite, it's all about athletic headbands, foam domes, and beer. all things dude. unapologetically dude. un-ironically dude.

on another note, you may have heard their big break out song, die hard on commercials for the new die hard movie that came out this summer. the story behind is that, guyz nite came out with the song and video tribute for die hard, got a cease and desist order from 20th century fox, but they realized it's good marketing, so they ended up using the song for promotions, and even had guyz nite at the live free or die hard premiere!

the song i posted was a special mp3 they were giving out to fans, it is a cover of toto's africa, so it raises awareness of africa (toto's africa).

and remember:Collapse )
