So I got 5 remixes for you, two are for Grouplove‘s suddenly popular “Colours”, which has gotten mainstream radio play and seems to be heading for the popularity “Pumped Up Kicks” has been garnering ever since it was released in January 2010. Here’s two catchy fun covers to “Colours”, one from Xaphoon Jones of Chiddy Bang and the other from Foster the People.

Next we got to three remixes to “Pumped Up Kicks”. The first is from indie buzzband Tic Tic Boom!, who I recently had the opportunity to meet. They are quite talented, will become really popular after showcases at CMJ and SXSW and have an EP slated for early 2012 release in between those two showcases. This remix reminds me of RAC remixes, minimalistic indie-type remix which takes the song in a different direction.

Not sure if Foster the People remixed “Colours” first or if Grouplove remixed “Pumped Up Kicks” first but I think it’s awesome they basically swapped songs to remix. Grouplove gets Captain Cuts on board in this “Pumped Up Kicks” remix turning it into a real chill dance remix. Once again, taking it in a completely different direction, making this version of “Pumped Up Kicks” accessible to dance to.

Lastly alternative hip-hop/rock/funk band T.I.M.E., which we featured in our March edition of Soundcloud’s Best, recently hit us up with their music video cover/remix to “Pumped Up Kicks”. It’s chill but you can clearly hear the bands sound throughout their version of “Pumped Up Kicks”, which hardly sounds like a cover and more like an original from T.I.M.E.
