Bon Iver - Calgary (Flip & Rodsten Edit) by flip
Flip and Rodsten decided to take the warm and soothing vocals of Bon Iver and spread them all over some haunting disco sounding house beats. I think this is my fist ever Bon Iver remix post. I hope to hear more. Such a perfect combination!

Capri Sonne mix 2011 by FARE SOLDI
I don't know if I have ever heard an electro masterpiece start out with a beat box. Fari Soldi take no time dropping into their "Yo! Raps Remix" of Mothers of Charleston song "Taxi Driver". From Beat Box to Hip Hop to Frisco Disco they get things started fast and furious.
I look forward to the Fare Soldi Carpi Sonne Mix every year. Its always jammed packed with their completely original and unique remixes. They also feature the hottest sounds out right now.
Case and point is the Roy Booge Brukup of Michael Jackson's "Remember the Time". Remember the Time is probably my least favorite Michael Jackson song. Something about the video left a bad taste in my mouth still many years later. I can't get the horrible image of Michael dancing around as an pharaoh out of my head. But when they dropped this track, I literally was frozen in disbelief. Not only was it good but it fit Fare Soldi's crazy ass sound perfectly.
Capri Sonne 2011 picks up right where they left it last year. If you start listening in your cubical make sure your co-workers are not around. Trust me, I have gotten more than one funny look as I fidgeted uncontrollably in my seat as Fare Soldi pumped through my headphones. I can't wait to get in my car, roll down the windows, turn it up and enjoy the open rode. I hope you enjoy this beauty of a mixtape as much I have in the past 24 hours...

Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus (Alex Metric Remix) by alexmetric
It makes me happy that songs from my youth have not been forgotten. Granted I was only 10 when this song was released back in '89 but I was old enough to appreciate it. Terrific remix by the one and only Alex Metric.

Rusko & Mad Decent are back with a new single. Everyday is a little of a departure from the slow, bass driven, dubstep bangers that we are accustomed to hearing from Rusko. This track has some Trance elements that we got glimpses of in the first album. Great track, even better video... Eagerly looking forward to the new album.
