Everytime I’m posting a MSTRKRFT remix I feel a bit nostalgic too the early days of this blog. Because a good two years ago when I started blogging MSTRKRFT was pretty hot with their Vuvuvu and Bounce tracks, but after that it wasn’t until Heartbreaker ft. John Legend that they really blew my socks off, which is in the end probably my favourite MSTRKRFT track. This next remix they did for Laidback Luke‘s “Till Tonight” is far from being as good as Hearbreaker, but it does have that nice amount of disorted electronic beats and bleeps!
So I’ve been very very busy lately with school, vacation, etc. With all that behind me I’m ready to post again, but before I do so I have some catching up to do. This post will contain tracks and mixtapes I’ve missed during the past weeks.
The first track is a colaboration between Shinichi Osawa and our very own Paul Chambers (known from Yeah, Techno!). I had some high expectations when I heard these two producers where teaming up and all I can say is that they haven’t let me down. Just listen to the drop at 1:32 and you’ll know enough!
The following remixes are rather old but for some reason I never came across them. I’m talking about two remixes of Chromeo‘s Tenderoni. Both MSTRKRFT‘s and Proxy‘s version are my absolute summer anthems!
Dada Life keeps surprising me with their monthly mixes, they know which tracks match and how to mix them fluently together. They also have funny descriptions for their mixtapes, no champagne and bananas this time but the sound of good meat gone bad. Have no clue what they are talking about? Just sit back and listen.
Etienne De Crecy – Hope (studio version)
Tom Staar – Two Tone Simms
Calvertron & Tim Healey – Back 2 The Ghetto
Sebastien Drums, Avicii – My Feelings For You (Angger Dimas Bambu Remix)
Kaskade – Dynasty (Dada Life Remix)
Sovnger – Breathless (Alex Gopher Day Remix)
Squeeze – Doop (Uppermost Remix)

The next mixtape comes from a Belgian dj called Skyve Reuter, his mix was broadcasted on Stubru last weekend. He’s also giving away an edit of You’ve Got The Love by Florence & The Machine vs The xx. A nice relaxing track to wake up with!
Studying for my final exam today (which is tomorrow), but I feel so bad leaving you guys hanging without any tracks for almost a week now, that I decided to “quickly” make this post. We got some quality tracks in our inbox from all sorts of different artists and labels and here the ones that caught my eye:
I’m starting of with this funky remix by Sabotage for “MMMatthias – James”, which probably falls a bit out of line with the rest of the upcoming tracks in this post. Very funky and old-schoolish, digging this kind of music a lot lately.
Then a remix for We Love Animals, the “famous” track of Crookers ft Soulwax & Mixhell. Heard some other remixes the last few weeks, but this is the first one that I like. Religion gave the original a somewhat of a “MSTRKRFT” like sound.
Talking about MSTRKRFT, the next track is a remix by Blende for “Breakaway” which was featured on their recent album “Fist Of God”. I don’t know how much of you guys know Blende, but if you do know their remixes, you know it’s banging electro trash your getting. It was a long time since I enjoyed a good trash electro track, but this one is most definitely spot on!
As I very much like the music by Bloc Party, I always look forward to more remixes made from their songs. And boy, there are some great remixes to find. A couple of months ago, Bloc Party released Intimacy Remixed: a collection of remixes from every track on Intimacy.
1. Ares – Villains Remix 2. Mercury – Hervé Is In Disarray Remix 3. Halo – We Have Band Dub Remix 4. Biko – Mogwai Remix 5. Trojan Horse – John B Remix 6. Signs – Armand Van Helden Remix 7. One Month Off – Filthy Dukes Remix 8. Zephyrus – Phase One Remix 9. Talons – Phones RIP Remix 10. Better Than Heaven – No Age Remix 11. Ion Square – Banjo or Freakout Remix 12. Letter To My Son – Gold Panda Remix 13. Your Visits Are Getting Shorter – Optothetic Remix
Furthermore, here are some remixes from other Bloc Party songs, most of you will probably already have them, but ey, nobody forces you to dl them again!
