Top 10: January 2011

On the menu for this month: sweet noise.

10. Stone & Fruits (Hatchback's Asteroid & Cantaloupe Mix) - 9dw
exquisitely loungy!

9. Violet Morning Moon (Remix by Dr. Dunks) - Bubble Club
perfect song to sober up to..

8. My House - Hercules & Love Affair
a present throwback.. possible? as if it was released in the 90s!

7. You Can Dance (Gemini Club Remix) - Chilly Gonzales
a sweet remix of Chilly's track.. the album is ultra loungy!

6. I Was Drunk (Tocadisco's 'Luke I Am Your Father' Remix) - Riva Starr
This just HAD to be included, despite it being a 2010 track. It was our NYE's anthem!

5. Genius of Love (The Pinker Tones Remix) - Tom Tom Club
This remix is so... electro and just so... funky.

4. Penguin - Avicii
totally brilliant remix of an old 80s orchestra's piece. I posted both the old and new songs so that you can compare on the blog. Avicii definitely ate this.

3. Hot Mess (feat. Elly Jackson) (Duck Sauce Remix) - Chromeo
I'm loving the release of 90sEsque house beats!

2. Empire Ants (Miami Horror Remix) - Gorillaz
Australia definitely has beauty to offer, in terms of music. I love Miami Horror's disco-house style!

1. The Road Leads East (Original Mix) - Schadenfreude
My favorite track this month! So housy and trancy!

Musical Translation

This is an amazing translation of musical genre. The two videos posted are very distinct in genres, but it's the same melody. It's great that djs can edit and remix old songs; it keeps the song alive through more than one generation. The Penguin Cafe Orchestra (1989), remixed by Avicii (2010).

I look forward to contributing to this pool of music. SOON!
