Summertime Sadness (Reich & Bleich Remix)
Another day, another Lana Del Rey remix. But hey, at least this one is pretty damn decent. Reich & Bleich (One guy from Germany) remixed ‘Summertime Sadness’. And although it has a pretty sad title, and Lana Del Rey on vocals, I can actually see this being played in a big room. Track relies mostly on a solid ensemble of sidechained synths.
Are You That Somebody (Sango Remix)
Nineties acapellas go really well with that whole bass music genre. Seattle’s Sango delivers proof with his remix on Aaliyah’s ‘Are You That Somebody’. Too bad the acapella sometimes is a bit too soft in comparison to the instrumental. Aw well, if you’re born in the late eighties or early nineties you can probably dream these vocals anyway.
One of the best tracks of 2011 plus rap vocals. The Hood Internet was going to do this sooner or later. They’ve caught Phantogram’s ‘Don’t Move’ instrumental version and combined it with Wiz Khalifa’s ‘Up’. And that’s not an easy mashup, as the acapella is pretty melodic. Proper mashup.
Don’t Stop (St. Lucia Remix)
Ending this post with a nice upbeat remix on Foster The People’s ‘Don’t Stop’. This version kinda sorta really sounds like that ‘Bohemian Like You’ track that was used in half a gazillion tv-commercials. By the way, the remixer on this track is NY’s St. Lucia.
