I love New Year’s Eve here in Philadelphia…because it means it’s almost New Year’s Day, and that’s a fantastic thing in this city. The Mummers Parade is just a very bizarre way to ring in the new year, that’s all I can really say.
Anyways..the Remix Artist Collective has completely blown up this year. Started up by Andre Anjos back in 2007, the project has grown into a true collective – spanning across many different genres, even now creating original content outside of the remix world.
2013′s going to be a great year, but let’s make 2012 go down with one of the best electronic acts out there.
As usual I’m late with my recap BUT I still wanted to put up the little photo documentation I have of my Governor’s Ball experience from a few weeks ago as well as at least a mention of some of my favorite acts of the weekend.
treadmill approved, 30 minutes for your running pleasures.
tracks used in order:
01. fight club is closed (religion remix) – dada life
02. 212 – azealia banks
03. must be the feeling (delta heavy remix) – nero
04. heart attack (css remix) – the asteroids galaxy tour
05. pharaohs (feat. roses gabor) – sbtrkt
06. second chance – peter bjorn & john
07. as far as i can see – phantogram
Phantogram has been putting out solid tunes since 2007. Their latest release from their upcoming 6 track LP, Nightlife, is no exception. Don’t Move is a pretty sweet combo of pop samples combined with some warm synth work. You’ll be into it, I promise. Phantogram – Don’t Move
Coachella is in my horizon line..well technically, I’ll be up even before the sun to get myself down to the airport in Baltimore on time. It’s surreal that this day has finally come. With days, weeks, and months of huge anticipation, it’s here. It’s fucking here.
As much as I’d like to take a step back and be completely AWOL in terms of technology and electronics..I know I’ll probably sneak a few tweets here and there. But, for the most part I will be completely away from this blog, facebook, you name it – which is actually a bit exciting to think about.
I’m leaving you all with some more music in prep for the festival before I depart. As always, right-click and enjoy.
I know what you’re saying..another guy who thinks he’s a mash-up master. You should know me better then that though, I won’t disappoint.
Kids & Explosions is Josh Raskin’s mash-up project which sparked from his work as a DJ.
This type of music is something that has a hard time keeping my attention. Believe it or not, there’s actually a bit too much going on in these type of songs for me to really want to wrap my head around it. But man, this guy is crafty. He can create entire songs, not just ultra-hyper songs that switch samples faster then you can even recognize them.
He’s got some skill…go ahead check out his debut, Shit Computer. If you’re into anything from the mash-up genre you will dig this guy, especially if you love yourself some Notorious.
