Great songs REMIXED pt.1 *Passion Pit, Matt & Kim, Foster the People and more!

May 14th, 2011 by | Remix |


I love the original to the above video and I love the remix even more, already watching it at least 8-10 times.

Anyways, best way to help lessen the many remixes/mashups I need to blog about, here’s five songs I really love that have been remixed. In some cases the original is better but other cases, the remix does add something special the original might lack. This is pt. 1 because all these remixes are kind of old and should have been blogged about at least 2 months ago.

First we got my all-time favorite Empire of the Sun track, “Walking on a Dream”, remixed by Kids At The Bar. Love how the hand-clap they throw in eventually get’s way more electronic and complex as the song progresses.

Next Borgore remixes Passion Pit’s “Sleepyhead”, slowing the pace down a bit and overall making for a chill remix with cool electro and some subtle dubstep that isn’t overbearing to the beauty of Passion Pit‘s sound… sorry I love Passion Pit so much, somebody take me to see them live.

Foster the People came out with “Pumped Up Kicks” a long time ago yet the song suddenly gets mainstream radio play this year. Either way, MNDR decided to do a remix on it, adding some cool 80′s type instrumentals and keeping the vocals fairly intact for a solid remix.

I know remixes of Matt & Kim have gotten really old, and maybe the remixes continue to come out because all of us are dying to hear new music from them now if we haven’t seen them live. Either way, well done remix by Rusty Lazer & JJ Marshall who have some Big Freedia rapping too. The song gets taken into a different direction and the rapping almost seems like it’s not needed, but this is pretty cool to play in a dance/club atmosphere where your happy it keeps you moving.

One of my favorite groups from New Zealand, The Naked & Famous put out a wonderful track in 2010, “Young Blood” which Chiddy Bang remixed and rapped on (amazing!) and a few months back, Dave Sitek, guitarist in indie rock band, TV On The Radio, remixed “Young Blood”. I have a feeling he put some of his own guitar work on the remix, which is a great addition to the original and some electronic beats hear and there. Overall I like how Dave Sitek didn’t take hardly anything out of the original.

Summer catch up (2 new videos)

December 1st, 2010 by | 24KT KidLivin, Dance, Electro, Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video, Techno |


Although this video came out over the summer, we feel it was one greatly overlooked. Filmed with a retro feel to match its retro sound, Ronson teams up with one of hip-hop’s greats, Q-Tip, and quirky synth-pop artist MNDR (pronounced Mandar) to create this euro-retro masterpiece anyone can dance to.
