Miami Horror is phenomenal.  I like nearly everything Benjamin Vanguarde produces under his alias.  The Australian native seems fixated on staying home by filling his calender with dates devoted to his home country.  We need to somehow get him overseas after the Australian tour.  Vanguarde’s newest is the first single from the 2010 album Illumination.  It’s definitely worth the peak.

Miami Horror – Sometimes

Miami Horror’s Make You Mine is one of a kind.  It has laid the foundation to a plethora of newly constructed remixes that simply rock the world.  Check out Cassian and Falke‘s versions here, but despite the remix the original cannot be beat.  Funky and fresh you just can’t find another ‘oldie’ that renders what this can.

A-Trak

Last Monday A-Trak released his much anticipated remix to Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Heads Will Roll. The teaser was spectacular but the full length track is unbelievably better.  I didn’t get a chance to post it earlier so if you don’t have it grab it below.  A-Trak goes wild on it. He kicks in a variety of verses and sporadic beats that will have clubs and parties everywhere craving for more.  I pitty the track that has to unfortunately follow this mix wherever it is played.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – You Are Never Alone With Model 21 (Justin Faust Club Remix)

Ultracity came around with a new remix to Grum‘s Runaway that is damn good.  It lightens up the original a little bit. Grum’s original is not half bad either, and well neither is Doctor Detroit.  Enjoy the whole package.

BONUS!

Reminiscent of the So Electric instrumental vibe I miss from Lifelike.

New Condiments: “I’m Feeling Saucey”

As per usual, well I guess its not usual if you don’t do it (post!?), I have been a twat and been absent for some time. Consequently, I have also been seriously lacking on postage for the month of July. So its time to catch up.

On that note, big shout outs and thanks to LA Friendly for the taste of the newest sauce, Duck Sauce that is. Strange name, maybe even hilarious, but what does it consist of?

Motherfuckin’ A-Trak and Armand Van Helden thats what/who. In celebration of A-Trak’s 10,000 lb. Hamburger tour, which will be coming to Ottawa (see details here), here is a little taste of Duck Sauce; disco-funk = tons of fun. Enjoy…

Duck Sauce – Anyway

And, here are new two new remixes to 317 favourite and friend Miami Horror‘s Make You Mine. Suffice to say the original is cash-money and both remixes are up for grabs, which you may already have by now, but to be honest I kinda prefer the Cassian version. Which is not to say that the Fred Falke remix is bad (fuck me right?), but its just a little too much the same as some previous efforts by the Frenchmen.

This is the first I’ve heard of Cassian, who is signed to Bang Gang 12s (dope crew) and hails from Melbourne, but I certainly look forward to more. In any case, choose which one you think is better for yourself yo.

Word up and peace out.

The New Music: February, wk 5

New Music

What a great weekend! I celebrated everything and accomplished nothing. More weekends should sound like that. I’m exhausted, and keep occasionally glancing at my bed. It’s looking more and more comfortable by the minute. With that in mind, I’m going to keep this post relatively quick. I have one newb to introduce that surfaced within the last week or so that’s worth a peek. This is the new Treasure Finger’s remix to the Miike Snow track “Animal.”

Miike Snow – Animal (Treasure Fingers Remix)

The next three have all been released sporadically throughout the last year. Throughout my last few days of self-destruction has caused them to resurface on my computer. Therefore I feel like sharing. Check em out, I’m sure they are nothing new but hopefully they will bring back some awesome ’08 mems like they did for me.

Faker – This Heart Attack (Miami Horror Remix)

Shooting Stars – Bag Raiders (Vocal)

Benjamin Vanguarde, the 21 year-old writer/producer for Miami Horror, has made an incredible impact in the industry this past year. “Music is my life” says Vanguarde in an interview with 0hhcr4pp. “My music is all about creating lasing feeling for its listeners, I think of myself as a composer in which I can create something from anything I feel has a certain power, potential or emotion to it whether it is a chord progression/melody… etc played by me or not it is all about making something special and memorable.” With influences from Prince, Supertramp, Fleetwood Mac, and Abba, Miami Horrors provides an uplifting sound that screams retro 80’s vibe. Vanguarde delivers on his message, and his music. Songs such as “Make You Mine” and “Don’t Be On With Her” are so sick and should be checked out immediately! The Hype Machine will provide for a solid star

Embrace ft. Ladyhawke (Fred Falke & Miami Horror remix) – PNAU

And a proper dance floor banger, we had posted the instrumental version a couple days ago, but lets be honest with each other, have a listen and tell me the vocals don’t bring the noise, which is a great thing, seriously though, let me quote “on the dance floor is where I’ll provide/ shake our hips as we collide”… wow. Anyways, I digress, have a listen and judge for yourself, and if by chance you find yourself shivering with joy and dancing by yourself, find comfort in the fact that while at that moment you may by yourself but exactly the same emotions are being shared across digital borders. mad love.
