So like always, I tried mixing some new tracks that are gaining my attention (I hope other people's attention as well) and a few others you might (or probably will not) recognize. So check it out and if you see me out and about, pretend you listened to it and tell me how much you loved it.
I wish you the best of luck on your future endeavors.
P.S. I have a version of this that is split into tracks, so if you want it as separate tracks (still mixed) shoot me an email.
P.P.S. Thom Yorke also wishes you the best. From the upcoming compilation Ciao My Shining Star: The Songs of Mark Mulcahy. As always from Mr. Yorke, an amazing song.
MP3: Thom Yorke - All For The Best
Best of Luck Mix
1. Fun Boy Three - Best of Luck
I heard this track and I immediately knew I had to start the mix with it. FB3 is one of my current musical obsessions (made up of Terry Hall, Neville Staple and Lynval Golding after they left The Specials).
2. Curses! - The Deep End
I have played out the Holy Ghost! remix of this track like crazy, but the original version highlights the female vocals with some 90's beats thrown in for the mix. Notice that both Curses! and Holy Ghost! have an exclamation point in their names. From hence forth I will be known as Chris! Mora! TWO exclamation points in my name! That's next level....
3. WhoMadeWho - The Plot (Discodeine Remix)
These Swedes are good. And when remixed by Discodeine (uuuummm Pilooski and Octet) it's doubly good. Nay, triply good.
4. The Mighty Dub Katz - Magic Carpet Ride (Son of Wilmot Mix)
This was a fluke that ended up working. Fatboy Slim knows how to get people to shake their bootays. The Mighty Dub Katz is one of his alias.
5. In Flagranti - Brash & Vulgar
The entire latest release by In Flagranti is amazing. I love the creative use of the sample in this (title) track.
6. Strangelets - Riot of Planet 10 (Blitz Gramsci Remix)
When those synths come in... watch out now!
7. Joakim - Watermelon Bubblicious
First of two Joakim tracks. This is a non-album teaser track leading up to his next full length out in September. If electronics instruments could have a heated discussion, this song would be the result.
8. Gui Boratto - Like You (Supermayer Remix)
Dance floor ki-ller.
9. Noze - Kitchen
The start of my kitchen theme. Notice how most house parties ended up in the kitchen. Coincidence? I think not.
10. Joakim - Come Into My Kitchen
Joakim number 2 and kitchen reference number 2. See a pattern?
11. Lykke Li - Dance Dance Dance (Baruko Som Sistema Remix)
Her voice is like cotton candy. Too much of it and you'll get cavities. So the song only plays for about a minute.
12. To Rococo Rot - Ivx 4
I love this song. I don't know if you can dance to it. I can. Or at least I think I can.
13. Liquid Liquid - Optimo (Sample 608 Remix)
Yes it's an official Liquid Liquid remix released by Domino. The EP also has The Loving Hand (Tim Goldsworthy of DFA) and Matthew Dear... suckers.
14. Subway - Simplex (Gatto Fritto Remix)
Fantastic sweeping single from the Soul Jazz label. It segues into the next track really well (in bed). (Doesn't adding 'in bed' to anything make it sound good?)
15. Shit Robot - Triumph
I feel like I have heard this song all my life. Timeless. In fact, I think they used it as the Miami Vice theme song for a couple of seasons in the 80's.
16. Syclops - Where's Jason's K?
Futuristic Jazz Music (FJM)
17. Nathan Fake - Turtle
18. The Soft Pink Truth - Over You (No Love)
The project was started on a dare. Guess who won?
19. Tensnake - In The End (I Want You to Cry)
Why aren't people talking about htis guy more? After his latest EP expect a flurry of "Tensnake" remixes hitting the dancefloor. I love the build up in this song.
20. Roy Davis Jr. feat Erin Martin - I Have A Vision (The Juan Maclean Remix)
The vocals begin to swirl around you at one point. Juan Maclean knows what he's doing. Well so does Roy Davis Jr.
21. The Juan Maclean - Tonight
Like I said, "Juan Maclean knows what he's doing."
22. N.A.S.A. - N.A.S.A. Anthem
Fun project with a shit load of guest artists.
Hope you enjoy it and play it over and over and over and over again.
