I’ve never been a fan of Aphex Twin (he has enough already) but you’d have to be a philistine not to enjoy the genius of Windowlicker – here friend of the Fringe Mac 3000 cuts up vocal elements from the splendid video with the original track.
The current wave of joy that The Whitest Boy Alive are bringing to lots of peoples lives at the moment made me recall how nice Remind Me, Erlend Oye’s vocal contribution to the coffee table favourite that is the first Royksopp album was – people who enjoy some rowdy club sounds might like this remix of the track by D Lake which is short but sweet.
Given how much Lykke Li‘s album has made me smile over the last few months it’s a bit shocking that there hasn’t been more word love for her on these here pages – apart from some worrying flamenco guitar moments Youth Novels is a joy to behold.
She is playing in London early next month and I will be at her Cargo gig the night before I fly out to New York. The Little Bit EP has just been released on the other side of the Atlantic and from it is this remix of Everyone But Me by Norwegian cosmic duster Diskjokke
Aussie electro kids Calling In Sick just sent through their latest remix effort – taking on the recent dancefloor favourite Disco Sirens by Midfield General and coming up with something the Bag Raiders would be proud of – all crunching synths and over the top 80s riffs.
There are already some pretty good remixes of this (Chicken Lips version being my favourite) but this would definitely work in the right club.
