turzi and co

There’s been tons of new goodness coming out this past week.  I’m so stoked to share these tracks! Last night also marked the opener to the 2009 NHL season.  Fuck yeah, I’m all smiles!

New beats in Buenos Aires!  (I hope they knew before we all did).  Tellier & Turzi connected to give us one hell of an instrumental.  Whether its knockin down harmony or throwing together some great dance beats these boys know how to get it done.  This mix has some great rhythm to it, and if you let it, will easily eat the next five minutes of your life in a surreal way.

Turzi & Sebastien Tellier – Buenos Aires

xx

The XX are phenomenal.  Their sound is largely eclectic and very original.  I jumped onto the wagon when they first appeared on here a few weeks ago.  Absolute perfect for those seeking a chill, mood track.  This song below is an extended edit.  Therefore it has been extended into a bar of solid gold.  Recommended for those seeking to drift off into the night and simply fade away.

The XX – Night Time (What Kind Of Breeze Do You Blow Extended Edit)

cutcopy

Cut Copy graced everyone last week with a new remix, and what a remix at that.  Their spin on Munk’s Back Down is excellent, but hey I’m a bit biased when it comes to Cut Copy having loved almost everything by them since being first introduced to the Australian crew.  But seriously how can one not be stoked over this when those keys interrupt the interlude a minute and a half into the sequence?

Munk – Back Down (Cut Copy Jackmaster Remix)

lifelike

These final two tracks are unreal and they were both introduced to me by Tracasseur. Although, it was especially nice of them to put Lifelike back on our radar by posting a great interview, which you can all read here.  I thought my Lifelike library was fairly extensive but those guys showed me I was missing one large extensive piece to the collection.  Everything about this track is solid, I’m not sure where to begin but I would ‘dub’ it one of the best electro-dance love songs I’ve heard in a long time.  Thanks fellas.

Lifelike – Running Out (Extended Version)

tesla

ODahl, ODahl! Tesla Boy does make a beauty canvas to use, however this new mix to Electric Lady is something else.  Try to stay still and play this.  Didn’t work did it?  Get your boogie on.

If you’ve been following the last week you know we’ve been rep’n the Twelves pretty hard.  Myself, along with a collective of friends, hit the show Thursday night and it was unreal.  I felt the opening act really pushed people to the limits as it strayed far from main act in genre and style.  Although unique, it just didn’t hit me.  I think many were confused with what they were going to see.  Those who stuck around until the Brazilian duo hit the stage got their money’s worth- that’s for sure.  The two nailed it and threw down one hell of a set.  They left out a few oldies I was hoping for but after that performance I can’t hate at all.

Don’t worry. If you missed out you can still catch any of these greats in the surrounding area.

As for this week, here’s the goods- bumpin’ as usual.

ratatat

Kid Cudi has become a front runner in mainstream electro-rap.  Interesting combination but still deadly.  Ratatat, excellent themselves, saw the potential and remixed a gem in Alive.

Kid Cudi – Alive (Feat. Ratatat)

astronomer

I really dig how smooth Astronomer puts this together.  Nearly flawless in their rhythmic dub take on Metronomy. If you haven’t already, check this out.

Metronomy – Not Made For Love (Astronomer Remix)

mansion 2

mansion 3

Fresh new stuff from Mansion!  This track is an exceptional move from harsher house and techno to some prime disco-electro.  It’s existed for a week or so, therefore you may already have it but if you don’t I really… really recommend it.

Mansion – Gasaida

Bestrack is simply unreal.  The more I stumble across him the more I dig everything I hear.  To prove how excellent this guy really is, here is another batch of tracks to include alongside the others from a few days ago.

Tesla Boy – Spirit Of The Night (Bestrack Remix)

Night Riders – Take My Hand (Bestrack Remix)

Bestrack – Do It All Night
