Oh Land - Sun of a Gun (Jacob Plant Remix)
I would just recapitulate what I wrote for another website about this song, but I won't plagiarize my own words. A guy that asked me to write a guest spot for his website (thistrack.com) sent me this song to mull over, and see if I could write something about it. As soon as I heard this song, the amount of excitement that filled up my heart exploded. Her voice! That drop! That bass! Those words! OH my, I had this song on repeat for a good week. The fact that Jacob Plant could turn such a sweet voice into something scarily bad ass is unbelievable.
Lady Gaga - Judas (R3HAB Remix)
Okay so I'm extremely hesitant to put up this song. 1: Because it's Gaga. 2: Because the first time I heard it I would have sworn if I died listening to it I would go straight to Hell. BUT, after listening to the words over and over, as much as she is making a mockery of the faith, I think there is a deep sense of understanding within the creature. She notes that Jesus is the correct virtue, but she can't pull away from sin...so it's not exactly anti Catholicism. ANYWAY, I stumbled upon this remix and I fell in love. I can't wait to hear this out (not that they would play it at any of the places I go) but if I did, I would dance my freaking ass off.
Krafty Kuts (ft. Sporty O) - Let's Go Let's Ride (Tim Healy Remix)
1,2,3, microphone check! APC, you always pull through for me. It took me a couple listens at first to get into it, but once I did, it sucked me RIGHT in. This is the best driving song in the world. Windows down, music blasting, ...kids crying in the back seat...it's wonderful!
Johnny Love - Sonora (Udachi Remix)
It's fun. I've been really into Latin/Spanish sounding music lately, considering two of my best friends are from Central America. Which makes me so sad when I have to move back north because there is NO Latin culture where I come from.
Nero - Me & You
Old, but still brilliant. My friend sent me the Phil Harmonic mash up with Nero that occurred only a couple of days ago, and it was absolutely phenomenal. There is no limit to music creation these days. First we started with Rap / Rock mash-ups and now it's Classical / Electro mash-ups. It brings a tear to my eye.
