FREE single from Two Door Cinema Club‘s upcoming album, Beacon. If you are familiar with the band, download “Sleep Alone” now! This band will blow up on a level similar to Phoenix as they have a somewhat similar catchy indie pop/alt rock sound that is easy to love.
and DOWNLOAD “Sleep Alone”.
Two Door Cinema Club has also announced a North American tour in September and October. Here are the full list of dates below. (more…)
This came out in April, but it seems to have gone under-the-radar among the blogs, luckily I’m subscribed to the Two Door Cinema Club newsletter. I love the original, the remix adds a bit more instrumentation and focuses a bit more on the instrumentals and the awesome hook from Young The Giant.
We put Young The Giant on our first Best You Never Heard tape which is worth checking out as most of the artists on it are getting mainstream.
Young The Giant – My Body (Two Door Cinema Club Remix)
RAC which stands for Remix Artist Collective, is a group of international producers who create re-interpretative rock/electronic/dance remixes for musical artists. They strive to stay away from “club” type remixes and to bring something new and different to the song.
I like many of their remixes and have included five of my favorites that we haven’t blogged about yet.
Foster The People – Houdini (RAC Mix)
Two Door Cinema Club – Something Good Can Work (RAC Mix)
Phoenix – Armistice (RAC Mix)
Empire Of The Sun – Walking On A Dream (RAC Mix)
Penguin Prison – Worse It Gets (RAC Mix)
Follow RAC on soundcloud for many more remixes!
First RIP Nate Dogg, “Regulate” is one of the greatest hip-hop songs of all time!
Now onto some mashups. The mashup artists below have never been featured on Before the Bigs. The first few mashups are pretty chill while the last two have more upbeat electronic beats/synths to them.
First we got Vico Ono who uses the rapping from Skee-Lo over the always chill Jack Johnson instrumentals. If a music video was made for this song, it would be somebody laying down at the beach and slowly fall asleep, entering the dream sequence of the lyrics from Skee-Lo.
I Wish I Was Jack Johnson by Vico Ono
Next we got Fissunix who uses the instrumentals to the song all white people know the lyrics of versus the vocals of a Two Door Cinema Club song I love the instrumentals of. Oasis instrumentals vs. TDCC vocals, let’s all chill by the camp fire to this song.
Wonderwall You Know by Fissunix
T.I. vs The Beatles! Imagine if T.I. came out on stage performing this song while holding all those weapons he illegally owned. I don’t know how I would respond to such a site. Well done Benjamin Dranklin, the two words to best describe this song would be safe hip-hop.
What You Know About Blackbird (T.I. vs The Beatles) by Benjamin Dranklin
Next we got Clubsauce who uses two underrated artists in Clipse and Bag Raiders. Clipse and Bun B on the rapping with Bag Raiders electronica instrumentals.
Clipse vs. Bag Raiders – Wamp Wamp by Mouth by Clubsauce
Lastly Mr Physix “Soldier of Luchini” is Camp Lo vs Rusko vs The Temper Trap. I like how all three of these artists are blended in although you can probably insert another hip-hop act other than Camp Lo and still get a dope mashup. Download

If you like Two Door Cinema Club, Phoenix, any other awesome indie pop/rock band or just like remixes and/or mashups in general, this post is for you. Personally I’m a fan of it all, that’s why I blog about it.
The Hot Mess remix is pretty much what his name suggests, the remix is a hot mess of synths over a great Two Door Cinema Club song.
Two Door Cinema Club – What You Know (Hot Mess Remix)
Young Empires add a nice house type beat while also keeping some of the best instrumentals from the original TDCC track.
Two Door Cinema Club – What You Know (Young Empires Remix)
Lastly Tokyo Police Club created a mashup using their song “Breakneck Speed” with their tour mates Two Door Cinema Club’s song “Something Good Can Work Out”; two of my favorite tracks from each of the respective bands in one, I’m loving this mashup.
Tokyo Police Club vs Two Door Cinema Club – Breakneck Speed Something Good Can Work
A month late but worth your wait! A collective of mashup artists called the Global Mashup Crew dropped a 10-track mixtape near the end of 2010 called Global Mashup Crew Biggest Hits 2010 (Download).The mixtape is worth downloading; honestly I kept around 7 of the mashups. Below are a few of my favorites that should convince you on downloading it plus the tracklisting.
Ha! Yes – I Know (Two Door Cinema Club VS Drake)
Big Z Remixes – Animal (Drake VS Neon Trees VS T.I.)
Doubleyou – Luda’s Magnetic Mafia (Ludacris VS Magnetic Man VS Swedish House Mafia)
Freestyle Friday week 42 and E-Dubble samples one of my favorite up-and-coming bands, Two Door Cinema Club’s “What’s Your Favorite Color”.
e-dubble – The In Between
I really like Phoenix and now I know a ton of other people do, so I figured, why not offer some artists remixes to Phoenix songs. Below are a few songs off the Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix Remix Collection (Buy).
To Download on Mac: Control-Click song and choose “Download” or “Save As”

If you like Phoenix at all, you will like Two Door Cinema Club. Funny thing is, the Ireland-born Electro-Pop/Indie Rock band opened for Phoenix earlier this year on their 2010 US Tour, but since then have been a headlining act performing in Australia, the UK and the US among others.
Two Door Cinema Club formed in 2007 and released their debut album, Tourist History, in March 2010, which has some really great songs.
Below are my favorites from Two Door Cinema Club including a song (“Hands Off My Cash Monty”) which was released recently.
Two Door Cinema Club – What You Know
Two Door Cinema Club – Something Good Can Work
Two Door Cinema Club – Eat That Up Its Good For You
Two Door Cinema Club – Hands Off My Cash Monty
