Pick 'n' Remix 2


Another month, another mixed bag to satisfy your passing curiosity for remixes.

Check out the elaborate remixy journey in the readmore...



As this is Pick 'n' Remix mark 2, I'm gonna play around with the number two and throw em out in pairs.

(Although don't expect volume three to have some similar coherance, I'm way too lazy for that, and three is far more complicated)

Chapter 1: An Essential Inclusion on Any Remix Collection
Two Justice-related Remixes

01. Justice- Genesis (Chewie Chocolate Cookies remix)

Pretty cool take on Justice's album opener, turning things one notch further towards dancey.

02. Stevie Wonder- Superstition (Justice JNSTY remix)

One of the greatest songs of all time given the Justice treatment. This is more of an interesting curio than anything else, but goddamn, I can't get enough of that bass sound.

Chapter 2: Because Tito Never Used a Drum Machine
Two Classic Track Remixes

03. Jackson 5- I Want You Back (Rogerseventytwo remix)

Really great remix which takes a very different approach to the song... often a good move when tinkering with timeless classics.

04. Rolling Stones- You Can't Always Get What You Want (Soulwax remix)

Another departure from the style of the original, Soulwax can always be relied upon. This is probably my favorite Stones song, and there are some pretty sweet ideas in this remix.

Chapter 3: And While I'm Playing the New Album To Death...
Two Faint Remixes

05. The Faint- The Geeks Were Right (Does it Offend You, Yeah? remix)

Sweet remix of the Faint's bitchin new single by up-and-coming indie dancesters. Very different to the dancier Boys Noise take, and both are excellent in their own right.

06. The Faint- Worked Up So Sexual (Death Cab for Cutie remix)

An older track from The Faint, from the amazing Black-Wave Arcade album, this remix is done by Death Cab's guitarist/producer Chris Walla.

Chapter 4: A Prelude to 'Intimicy'
Two Bloc Party Remixes

07. Bloc Party- Mercury (CSS remix)

A suitably bright and chirpy take on Bloc Party's awesome new tune. It still packs a punch, but I guess just does it with a smile.


08. Bloc Party- I Still Remember (SebastiAn remix)

From a remix promo of this Weekend in the City single, SebestiAn's version is dirty & gritty. In a good way.

Chapter 5: Crowdpleasing Finale
Two 'Superstar Dj' Remixes

09. Eric Prydz Vs Pink Floyd- Proper Education

Another Brick in the Wall was never the kind of song you could get away with playing on a dancefloor, but Eric Prydz has done just enough to the original to make it so. Nothing drastic, just a little push.

10. The Ting Tings- Great DJ (Calvin Harris remix)

Predictibly, there's a load of Ting Tings remixes floating around at the moment. This one is, in my opinion, far and away the best, and is sure to be making some appearances at parties in the near future.
