all things Justice

None of these remixes are new and are probably not unknown. There were some that were just impossible to find online and aren’t even here. Bottom line is, these are just here because they’re plain good remixes of Justice with something else! My personal favourite is the one with Notorious, I like the rapping + mgmt + justice twist.

The last one, though, is this weird mash-up of MGMT, Justice and Ramones samplings by The Illuminoids that definitely produced contradicting, polar-opposite opinions from listeners. Fact is, The Illuminoids are famous for these awkward compilations of different sounds, like their Bauhaus + Beck, Justice + Bowie, Sex Pistols + Wolfmother and L7 + CSS mash-ups. They also have a few remixes that I still want to check out, like Empire of the Sun and Hot Hot Heat. Anyways, enjoy some good electro. :)

YAY, finally! I love New Years, it always gives off this feel of changes and resolutions, and even though it’s not true, people at least think they can do anything and become anything they want – and that’s enough to have a more positive energy going around. For some reason, New Years always makes me stop to think, too, and evaluate things… maybe look into some quotes or novels with deep meanings that give me an inspiration for changing or something insane of the sort.  And for that I found this interesting website with the best musical quotes ever, it’s really cute.

Anyways, for the vicious readers of this blog (I’m sure there are billions out there), I don’t have that much to post, but really wanted to say something in the first day of the year and am thus forced to share the few material I have. Not bad ones, though, I looove them!

First of all, it’s this cover of Kids from MGMT by The Kooks: pretty much all the happiness of an ordinary MGMT song, with all its bubbly vibe, with the orgasmic accent of our dearest Luke Pritchard, who has made the song a little less electro and a little more guitar-friendly.

Secondly, I found this Passion Pit remix of the song Sleepyhead made by Ring Trick; now, I usually dislike most Passion Pit (and Phoenix, for that matter) remixes out there, because I think the sound is already too original and unique and is just sort of  ‘ruined’  when messed with. This one, however, doesn’t necessarily ruin it (it’s not better than the original though, of course) but transforms in into a more dance-y tune, with a more choppy rhythm and less of the high-pitched Angelakos vocals that could make the tune more proper for parties, perhaps. Same applies to the Redial remix of Phoenix’s Lisztomania, that added on an extra beat.

Thirdly, I missed out on watching Mos Def’s new music video for Supermagic, song from the 2009 album The Ecstatic, last year. Haha it’s such a homedawg video, that’s all I can say.

First things first: I have no idea how to get around a blog. Seriously, I’ve shared them with friends before, and I just tagged along to what they did – I never actually had one on my own. Considering I’m totally out of ideas for a first post and I’m still trying to find my way around wordpress, I’ll just leave a song I’m slowly addicting myself to, considering this is supposed to be about music, movies, books and all of that.

It’s that Kid Cudi song Pursuit of Happiness, featuring MGMT and Ratatat, that can be found in his amazing album Man on the Moon.
