I have so much recycling piled up that needs to be taken to the recycling center that all I can think about is recycled plastic. Hence, the picture of what all our plastic products look like when they are all squashed together in a pile, ready to get melted down and made into new plastic consumer products again. It’s a vicious circle, at least, if I can get to the recycling center!
Latest mix that aired on 94/7fm during the Cocktail Mix at 6. Lykke Li is coming to Portland in a couple of weeks so we’ve been pushing her a bit lately. Lots of great remixes floating around but I haven’t head the Chavez mix all that much so decided to start the set off with that one. The Twelves are the new gods from Brazil. They just make magical remixes and take the Black Kids to another level. Love the Dizzee Rascal/Calvin Harris tune and Shazaam just makes it even dancier.
Afterlife takes the Eric Prydz smash hit and ads some new elements to it. Surprisingly dance oriented considering Aferlife is known more for slowing their remixes down to the point where it’s almost ambient. Okay, so I kind of missed the whole Vampire Weekend thing but I’m catching up with a great Chromeo remix. I like their whole album, which is a pretty amazing feat to these jaded ears.
Metronomy is coming to Portland as well this month. They’ll be at Holocene on the 23rd. I don’t know what it is about these guys but they seem to write songs just to get remixed. Curious to hear what they sound like live. The smash 2002 Shakedown track gets a remake from Seamus Haji and still sounds great almost 7 years later.
last song is a great mellow outro track from French DJ and producer Dimitri from Paris. It’s from his brilliant 1996 album “Sacrebleu”. It was recently re-released so if you don’t have it yet, now’s your chance.
Enjoy the mix and see you at some shows this month.
