Ok, I really didn’t care for the original but this remix is fun and has the usual hijinx of a Fat Boy Slim track plus some reggae dub sounds to round it all out.
Underworld – Crocodile
Tons of trance sounds on this track with echoey vocals by Hyde. Nice to hear Underworld again, after their five year hiatus.
Sebastien Leger & Chris Lake – Aqualight
Here’s a track that will get everyone to the dance floor. This electro/house number is courtesy of Sebastien Leger & Chris Lake, called “Aqualight”. Has great builds and a lead hook to die for. Arpeggiated synth rides along top creating a cool harmony and a swankier groove. This track was taken from thier EP named, “MISTAKES EP”.
Ok, so my guilty pleasure of the year is the tv show, “So You Think You Can Dance”.
For those of you that missed this gem of reality tv, it’s a dance show and competition similar to the premise of American Idol. Anyway, aside from being a fun and addicting show every once in a while I’ll hear a track they use for a dance routine that just blows me away. The Presets – Are You The One is such a track. This electro/rock tune by the Australian Presets has a very sleazy feel (think soft cell esque meets LCD Soundsystems) and hand claps… I just love me some Hand Claps…
so here it is: The Presets – Are You The One
Nitin Sawhney remix of Sting’s – A Thousand Years
This remix of Sting’s A Thousand Years has a light splattering of electronic elements, a dope dub bassline, and world sounding elements throughout. Nice, chilled, and relaxing.
