Jose Gonzalez – Crosses (Tiesto remix)
Great song with a greater remix, Tiesto gives Jose Gonzalez’s Crosses a nice mellowed out trance mix with the four-on-floor treatment. Love how the effects pulsate on the guitar throughout this track.
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.
Shout Out Louds – Tonight I Have To Leave It
Yes, How I miss the days of mascara and puffy sneakers… if this track doesn’t take you back to the early 80’s Cure nothin’ will. This track reminds me alot of the Cure’s “In Between Days”
Album: Our Ill Wills
Artist: Shout Out Louds
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.
