I am continually enamored with the golden synthetic melodies that David Douglas makes. Royal Horticultural Society still ranks as one of my favorites of the year, and this new remix of Holland’s Mensenkinderen furthers my love:
In May Oakland’s James & Evander released Bummer Pop, a collection of summery electronic synth pop. In August they dropped a remix EP featuring some real stand out re-works from folks like Parentz, Heart Island, RX Gibbs, and Courtship. Download the EP for whatever you want at the James & Evander Bandcamp. Meanwhile….
It seems like a rare occurrence when a remix comes by that I really enjoy enough to devote a single post to. Javelin, a favorite of mine, have remixed Ed Schrader’s Music Beat’s “Traveling”, perhaps my favorite track from what is quickly becoming one of my favorite albums of the year Jazz Mind (purchase/stream it on bandcamp). Take a listen below.
Yes this song has already been through the remix ringer (so to speak) and normally I kind of just glaze over emails that include “The xx remix” or “Radiohead remix”, etc., but if it includes Beat Culture – I’m listening. Glad I did because Sunik Kim kills it again in his own rain soaked beats kind of way. Take a listen:
And if you do not already have Beat Culture’s phenomenal Tokyo Dreamer – go grab it.
Philly’s Weathervane Music recently released the free Shaking Through Soundtrack series which has selected tracks from artists who participated in the annual documentary series. Two of these artists, Snowmine and Twin Sister, decided to go a little further by releasing a double remix single with WV. Take a listen to the two songs here, but be sure to head over to the Weathervane Music Bandcamp and check the mass amount of awesome music they have there.
