Basic Bitches, Hate Labels and an Amazing Kreayshawn Remix

I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts lately, among them Slate’s Double X Gabfest. In a recent podcast they discussed the concept of the “basic bitch.” Immediately I thought of Kreayshawn’s 2011 hit, “Gucci Gucci” which proclaims “Gucci Gucci Fendi Vendi Prada: basic bitches wear that shit so I don’t even bother.” At one point in the show one of the hosts declared she wanted a remix of that song, and I am here to supply. How can I resist when Party Ben’s remix is so damn good? The hosts discussed basic bitches as compared to hipsters. They seem… tell me more

Top Songs of 2013: Best Dance Music TOP TEN

The Top Songs of 2013 playlist continues, with the ten best dance songs playlist. By “best dance songs” I don’t mean “biggest bangers.” While the tracks below will make your hips shake, they also combine the zeitgeist of EDM right now and the direction dance music is heading. tell me more

Top Songs of 2013: Best Dance Music 11-20

2013 was another good year for dance music. In narrowing down this list, I focused on songs that capture the genres and artists of the zeitgeist…at least as it appears from my weird indie hole in the wall. Thus, there is no Miley Cyrus here, but I was more likely to include Lorde than a comparable remix that felt out of time. Despite such considerations, I think this list has more retro remixes than any previous year. Could it be that 2013’s producers were daydreaming of the sexual revolution? I’m just gonna assume its so. tell me more

The Freaks and Geeks Parents

Just wanted to share this photo of the parents from Freaks and Geeks. This was a screencap that I grabbed that just happened to be where the show was paused. I thought it was a great shot, each of the parents looking uniquely funny. Supporting cast never get enough love, you know? This is from Episode 15, “Moshing and Noshing”. Oh, I know, ya’ll are so spoiled you expect a music track on a silly little post like this. OK, fine, but only because Childish Gambino happens to have titled a song as a tribute to the show. Here’s a… tell me more

Fake Blood and Alex Metric

Sadly I wasn’t able to get tickets to the Bag Raiders, Classixx and RAC show a few weeks back. So I’ve picked up tickets to Fake Blood an Alex Metric as a consolation prize. And as consolation prizes go, it’s sure to be better than a red ribbon. Fake Blood While last month’s featured DJs are known for dreamy remixes heavy on synth, Fake Blood builds bangers. tell me more

Bag Raiders, Classixx and RAC play the Mezzanine this Saturday

A good friend just told me that June 1st three fantastic DJs—Bag Raiders, Classixx, and the Remix Artists Collective—are going to be at the Mezzanine. All three of these DJs should be on your must-see list, as they’re consistently putting out memorable remixes of indie bands you already love (or should).
But don’t take my word for it, have a listen for yourself. tell me more

Mashups of Duck Sauce – Barbra Streisand

[Image from Last.fm] I suspect that "Barbera Streisand" is the dance jam of the summer. Mainly because it's around, but not on the radio so your average radio drone hasn't heard it a thousand times. I imagine revelers saying, "Oh I know this! Wasn't it on Glee?" and their reveler friends saying "I dunno, but it sure makes me want to dance!" As it should.  But you know I like to mix it up so, I'm sharing some of my favorite mashups of Duck Sauce's Bab's hit. The song barely has vocals so it's easy to mash and mix. It's like… tell me more

Adele overplayed? Remix it, mash it, cover it

[image thanks to WolvesAteMyFace by way of MelodyOfYourLife]   If you’ve been out in the world lately, or even if you haven’t, you’ve probably heard Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.” At the mashup night where I like to dance, they are in the habit of playing it two or three times in the same night. But, hey, it’s a great song and Adele’s fame is much deserved–no doubt the woman can sing. But at this point, we need some different versions of it because the original is getting tiresome from overplay. Here’s a favorite remix, cover and mashup to allow… tell me more
