Remixes: Pixie Lott – Mama Do (Linus Loves Radio Edit Remix)

linusloves

Linus Loves has taken a very straight up top 40 pop track   and given it some edge with his remix.   Has a little bit of that late 90’s UK garage sound on the track.

Another remix I’ve been playing quite a bit of is Calvin Harris‘s remix of Passion Pit‘s, “The Reeling”.   Calvin has take a more of a funky house approach to the track.

Friendly Fires – Paris (ft Au Revoir Simone – Aeroplane Remix)

So how do you know a good remix from a bad one?   Well, a mark of a great remix is when you prefer it too the original, which is the case with this wonderfully crafted remix by Aeroplane.   They even replaced the main vocals from Friendly Fires lead vocalist, Ed Macfarlane with   Au Revoir Simone.

Friendly Fires – Paris (ft Au Revoir Simone – Aeroplane Remix)

Lyrics to Paris :
One day we’re gonna live in Paris
I promise
I’m on it
When I’m bringing in the money
I promise
I’m on it
I’m gonna take you out to club showcase
We’re gonna live it up
I promise
Just hold on a little more

And every night we’ll watch the stars
They’ll be out for us
They’ll be out for us
And every night, the city lights
They’ll be out for us
They’ll be out for us

One day we’re gonna live in Paris
I promise
I’m on it
I’ll find you that French boy,
You’ll find me that French girl
I promise
I’m on it

So go and pack your bags
For the long haul
We’re gonna lose ourselves
I promise
This time it’s you and me for evermore

And every night we’ll watch the stars
They’ll be out for us
They’ll be out for us
And every night, the city lights
They’ll be out for us
They’ll be out for us

And every night we’ll watch the stars
They’ll be out for us
They’ll be out for us
And every night, the city lights
They’ll be out for us
They’ll be out for us

NEW: Imogen Heap – The Song That Never Was (Odd Year Remix)

imogen_heap

New remix by Odd Year of a track that Imogen Heap had written but never released.   It was tentatively titled, “The Song That Never Was“.

Taken from twestival:

A short time ago, Imogen Heap took a few days out from making her new album to write a track that was supposed to feature at the end of TV programme.   She wrote the song and recorded all the vocals, leaving the music for the composer who was writing the rest of the score so she could get on with her much anticipated new album. For one reason or another the song wasn’t used and so the track never got completed. But their loss is Twestival’s gain as she’s excitedly donated the aforementioned vocals for ‘The Song That Never Was’ experiment.

lupe
