Three Sure Bangers

Someone was nice enough to point a finger over to Holy Ghost!‘s mix of Goblin City.  At nine minutes in length, it has some versatility.  It’s very playful and melodic.  The interlude grabs you within the first minute and then you’re locked in from there.  These guys from NY surely are mixing masterminds.

This next remix is lethal.  The original to MSTRKRFT‘s pairing with Legend in my opinion was too slow and strayed away from the traditional party bangers that I became infatuated over MSTRKRFT with.  The Jump Jump Dance Dance Remix eliminates this problem.  Tossing in a heavier bassline and some catchier rifts, this song is officially ready for the hardwood.  A little dose of that synth nearing 3 mins in just ties it all together.  I know you’ll like this.

Jump Jump Dance Dance are Etc Etc’s latest signing since PNAU and Lost Valentinos.   The Californian based duo consists of LA DJ and Vocalist Chris Carter and Simon Lewick.  Keep an eye out for these guys in the future.  This is only the beginning.

The last hit comes from the duo in Classixx and has been patiently waiting in my library for about two week now to be tossed up here.  I watched it grow as various blogs covered it more last week.  Still relatively unheard, it’s too good to not take the extra time out and showcase it on 317.  The new take on Major Lazer‘s Cash Flow is mellowed out and absolutely terrific.  Great work threading in some light synth to carry you away with.

Chewy Chocolate Cookies has landed themselves delicious remix number TWO on 317 with the rendition of Alexander Technique’s Rock U with additional vocals coming from Princess Superstar.  This track combines elements of heavy pop with a bad ass funky bassline.  If you’re digging the CCC check out their album that dropped early
April entitled Apocalypse.  It’s available on beatport or any other third party host.

Raw Mann and Yann Destal are the duo behind the Priors and the dynamite track What You Need, which hit most blogs last week.  The two became well versed in music at an early age and never really left.  Only recently joining together to work on the new music project, Yann and Raw sound promising for the future in their.  Into the Fight, the first released single from the two is also decent but is a lot more on the indie-pop side than the danceable beaut What You Need hits us with.

Fischerspooner turned over a Kylie Minogue track that’s pretty exceptional.  Fischers not alone in delivering some heavy sounds through Kylie’s vocals.  All of the below tracks are interesting electro mixes released over the years- all worth mentioning.  This new track, entitled Come Into My World, is no different.  The pop princess sounds pretty hot moving over genres to somethin a lil more groovy and a lil more sexy.
