01-14-12 – The Glitch Mob

So in this post earlier this week, I said that The Glitch Mob was one of my top three live concerts in 2011. The Glitch Mob isn’t touring currently because they’re working on a new album. So, it’s unlikely I’ll get to see them in 2012, or hear much new stuff from them.

Luckily, however, The Glitch Mob doesn’t seem to sleep and they’ve produced massive amounts of music and remixes. Which in turn all those people out there that aren’t computer retards, like me, have gone and added bits and pieces to the re-remix the songs. A few songs listed below, not in any particular order, but if you press the play button on the music player (in the lower lefthand corner) all of the songs will play in sequence.

Bass Nectar – Heads Up (Glitch Mob Remix)
DJ Bahler – Naiad (Weeknd + The Glitch Mob)
TV On The Radio – Red Dress (The Glitch Mob Remix)
White Stripes – Seven Nation Army (The Glitch Mob Remix)
Krazy Baldhead – The 4th Movement (The Glitch Mob Remix)
And of course, my favorite song by Boretta (One third of The Glitch Mob) because it drives Lesleh mad:
Haiku D’etat – Mike, Aaron & Eddie (Boretta Remix)

Also, one of the more amazing things I found when obsessing about The Glitch Mob last night is this video. The first three songs are Glitch Mob remixes. The very first song is TV On the Radio’s ‘Red Dress’ (which I have a link to above). Something about this song gets me hyped up.

The video is called ‘The Apple Tree’ and the first few minutes are the coolest, but over all a pretty amazing feat for anyone to put together. I watched the whole video on full screen and it’s incredible. Especially how the music syncs with all the seemingly random movie clips.

And just for good measure, here’s a nice mashup of TI and The Glitch Mob:

3-4-11 – Remixes You Won’t Roadrage too

It’s been a busy week. I’m not sure where all the time goes. I get up every morning, I blink and twelve-thirteen hours have passed by. Add in a few moments of eating and about seven-eight hours of sleeping, and I rinse and repeat… It’s weird though, I get up early on workdays, but I get up even earlier on the weekends. I guess I cherish the time so much, I’ll sleep less on the weekends to have more leisure time. Either that or I’m sleeping too much during the week. I doubt that though.

I’ve put together some songs that help me get through the week. Spending two hours a day in a car, I can only handle so much NPR (and I love NPR), I’ve got to have something to just mellow out too. Traffic is a total bummer too, so it can’t be angry music. The music has got to be something I can lose my thoughts to without losing my mind completely. So here they are, I plan to post some more tomorrow.

I’ll start slow, work you into it. Admittedly, I’ve never heard the original by Brand New, but I’d wager this redo by The Burning Ear is better then the original.

Brand New- Daisy (Adventure Club Dubstep Remix)

We’ll keep that mellow vibe and continue on with some Cassette Culture. Which reminds me of some Daft Punk Legacy dank.

Cassette Culture – We Once Had An Empire (Jungle Fiction Remix)

My first twist, The Go! Team. The Go! Team is funky all by itself, but then Star Slinger went and really went to town.

The Go! Team – Apollo Throwdown (Star Slinger Remix)

Usher? Check. Tokyo Police Club? Check. The Hood Internet? Oh yes, check. Absolutely nothing could be added or removed from this track. The Hood Internet never disappoints.

The Hood Internet – Frankenpapers (Usher x Tokyo Police Club)

Speaking of never failing, The Glitch Mob, is another top producer. Again, nothing could be stripped from this. It’s like a bloody rare steak, any more processing and it’d be ruined. Any less cooking and you might as well eat it raw.

White Stripes – Seven Nation Army (The Glitch Mob Remix)

Then we got DMX + The XX, yet again by The Hood Internet. For whatever reason this reminds me of Apolo Onho and the 2010 Winter Olympics. And just like Apollo Ohno, this is an all gold performance. Genius

The Hood Internet – The XX Gon’ Give It To Ya (DMX vs The XX)

Speaking of The Hood Internet, we’ve got to The White Panda in here. Now they’ve got a ton of tracks that are some of my favorites mash-ups ever, but for whatever reason this song gets me pumped. But not too pumped to start crashing into stupid assholes driving 30mph in the left lane.

The White Panda – Throw Some Tik On That Tok (Ke$ha vs Rich Boy) (Stella Edit)

Appropriately, Klaxons with It’s Not Over Yet, unfortunately it is…

Klaxons – Its Not Over Yet (Brodinski Remix)

Enjoy and let me know your mellow tracks for traffic (in the comments below)!
