Phoenix - Lisztomania (Shook Remix)

Phoenix – Lisztomania (Shook Remix)

I picked up on this track about a week ago and I’m kicking myself for not getting it on here sooner.  In the space of 7 days, this track has gone off bigtime in the webosphere and rightly so.

Metronomy Vs Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heartbreaking Maps (DJ Clive$Ter Mash)

Another day, another track from the archives for our ‘Slipped Through The Net’ week. This track mixed by DJ Clive$Ter was on our radar some time ago and we thought it was only fair to resurrect this track with you this week.

I’m on a bit of trip to the archives this week to pluck out some very excellent mixes and mash-ups that have ‘Slipped Through The Net’.  This mash-up remix by Electrosound is a genius track that works wonders on the ears.

Kanye West vs. The XX – Touch The Sky (Carlos Serrano Mix)

This mash up remix by Carlos Serrano has been around since the turn of the year and I forgot all about it until I recently came across it. Sometimes there are mash ups that come along that sound like the tracks have been perfectly slotted over each other.

Passion Pit - The Reeling (Calvin Harris Remix)

Passion Pit – The Reeling (Calvin Harris Remix)

I’m not quite sure why there has been a sudden surge in popularity online for this track but I’m not arguing as any quality remix by Calvin Harris is always a good thing.  Maybe it’s because Calvin Harris is chugging up the popularity stakes with his current new track Feels So Close.

Abbe May – Design Desire

Abbe May released her new album Design Desire on July 8th through Source Music / MGM and it has got to be said that this is a little cracker of an album.

Gigwam Festival Fun

Gigwam Festival Fun

I originally started out wanting to do an article on the wearable Poncho tents you can now buy which will protect you from the elements whilst you are at many a festival, come rain or shine. However, I then discovered the ‘Gigwam’ and stopped looking further as this is the king of kings of festival...

Paloma Faith - New York

Paloma Faith – New York

It’s funny how you can have an existing track for ages and think it is good and then someone attaches it to a piece of film or a commercial and it gets transformed into another piece of music with an entirely different meaning.
Sia - Breathe Me (Butch Clancy Remix)

Sia – Breathe Me (Butch Clancy Remix)

Another Butch Clancy remix and another gem of a track is born. The original version of Breathe Me by Sia is a slow piano ballad that builds up to a crescendo of strings and is an absolute classic track.

Plan B - The Recluse (Nero Remix)

Plan B – The Recluse (Nero Remix)

If you wanted to take a track by Plan B and transport it into what sounds like the Daft Punk soundtrack for Tron Legacy, then you’d go no further than this track.  I’m sure Plan B and Nero wouldn’t mind the comparison.
DJ Earworm – Party on the Floor (Summertime Ball Mashup)

DJ Earworm – Party on the Floor (Summertime Ball Mashup)

Three words….. LISTEN TO THIS!!!! Or how about two words….WATCH THIS!!! A must have Summer (or Winter depending where you are) 2011 mega mashup.
