Mirah – La Familia (Guy Sigsworth Remix)

From one of my all time favorite producers comes a great electronic remix.   For those who are unfamiliar with the name of Guy Sigsworth, I’m sure you’ve heard his work if your an avid listener to electronic music.   He’s probably best know as half of Frou Frou (other half of course being Imogen Heap), but here are just a few of the songs he’s produced and/or co-written:

Seal   – Carzy (1991)
Bjork – Isobel (1995)
Bjork – All is Full of Love (1997)
Madonna – What It Feels Like For A Girl (2000)
Lamb –   Gabriel (2001)
Frou Frou – [entire album:Details] (2002)
Kate Havnevik – Unlike Me (2006)
Temposhark – It’s Better To Have Loved (2007)
Alanis Morissette – [entire album: Flavors of Entanglement] (2008)

Mirah – La Familia (Guy Sigsworth Remix)

taken from Guy’s myspace page:

“”La Familia” is a song by Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn, who lives in Oregon. I’ve been a fan of Mirah’s since hearing one of her songs late night on XFM about five years ago – and here I am remixing it specially for her forthcoming remix album”

Her remix album, Joyride: Remixes, was released back in 2006.

I so dig the remixes by Streetlab from NY. Swing by their myspace page for a killer dance remix of Hot Chip’s “One Pure Thought”

Streetlab Bio (taken from Streelab.net):

Streetlab is an electronic rock music duo from Brooklyn formed in late 2001 by Mark Lamorg (coZ) and Ryan Leary. Taking the role as in-studio producers and songwriters, the two began by remixing classic rock tracks with the dance-floor in mind. Both being raised on the alternative rock scene of the early 90’s, the two attempt to erase the line between the two genres – making music that appeals to both rockers and dancers. After receiving support from Radio1’s Annie Nightingale for their remix of Led Zeppelin’s The Immigrant Song in 2005, the two began releasing various classic rock remixes underground, inspiring indie-rock label Kanine Records. Streetlab contributed remixes to their catalog for 2 of their artists: Mixel Pixel and Professor Murder.

Still residing in Brooklyn, the two have currently been remixing and producing for artists in and out of the New York City area. Some of their most recent work includes remixes for the record labels Astralwerks and Invisible Records. The two also contributed a remix to The Limitless Potential, an open source remix compilation of Nine Inch Nails songs from the album Year Zero. Their remix of The Rolling Stones classic “Gimme Shelter” can be heard in many stores around the United States.
