Random Remixes #2


Je n'ai pas trouvé de meilleur moyen que ce post pour parler de tous les remixs que régulièrement je garde dans un coin en me disant "tiens il est bon ce son, il faudra que j'en parle sur mon blog". Alors voilà, on repart dans les jeux de mots douteux et autres tournures de phrases étranges pour, je l'espère, vous faire passer un agréable moment en écoutant ces 7 "variations".

I haven't found anything better to introduce you to those excellent remixes I keep in a corner of my desktop thinking 'that sound is pretty good, I might deal with it on my blog'. So here they are, with a few words and some strange sentences, and I hope you'll spend a good time listening to these seven 'variations'.


1) Yeah Yeah Yeahs x A-Trak

Vous avez sans doute vu le clip de Heads Will Roll, où la charismatique mais hystérique chanteuse Karen O et ses collègues se font trucider par un loup-garou en smoking qui se prend pour MJ sur le dancefloor. Toucher à l'excellence de la meilleure chanson du meilleur album des Yeah Yeah Yeahs, un sacré challenge. Que le DJ québécois A-Trak, résidant à New York, plus jeune vainqueur des Championnats du Monde de DMC à l'age de 15 ans et accro du crossfader en live, a relevé avec brio.

You may have seen the video clip for Heads Will Roll, where the charismatic but a bit hysteric Karen O and her mates are killed and sliced by a werewolf wearing a smoking and thinking he's MJ on the dancefloor. Trying to remix the best song from Yeah Yeah Yeahs' best album, what a big challenge! Montreal-born DJ A-Trak, living in NY, youngest winner of the DMC World DJ Championships at the age of 15 and addicted to the crossfader while performing live, succeeded in this difficult task.

2) NightWaves x We Plants Are Happy Plants

NightWaves, c'est le projet musical de Kyle Petersen et Josh Legg, les deux anges californiens qui tirent les rênes du blog Binary du côté de Los Angeles. Leur titre Fascination, à la base c'est un synthé tintant et un type se languissant de l'époque où il était seul avec sa nana. Il y a eu quelques remixs, tous dans le même genre musical. Et puis il y a le remix de We Plants Are Happy Plants ou WPAHP, un jeune hongrois dont la musique est aussi à base de synthé tintant. On pourrait s'attendre à un remix exotique façon boum boum, et puis on lance le morceau et on rencontre ces violons ultra-sensuels qui transforment le morceau original en une pépite que je qualifierais d'éléctro-langoureuse.

NightWaves, it's the musical project of Kyle Petersen and Josh Legg, two Californian boys writing on the Binary blog in LA. Their song Fascination, it's a smooth synth sound and a man regretting the time when he was alone with his girlfriend. Some remixes of this song have been released, each with the same kind of synth sound. Then this young Hungarian boy named We Plants Are Happy Plants or WPAHP came in, also with this kind of synth sound. But rather than making an 'exotic' remix based on too much drums, we meet an ultra-sensual violin sound which is turning the original piece into a massive jewel of languorous electronic music.

3) Metric x 80kidz

J'avoue que les 80kidz n'apportent pas grand chose à la chanson de Metric, à part quelques electro-trucs, mais on ne va pas leur en vouloir pour ça, à ces 3 japonais qui ont sorti le tube Miss Mars sur Kitsuné. On écoute ce remix jusqu'au bout, juste parce qu'il est bon d'entendre la voix d'Emily Haines de temps en temps.

I have to admit the 80kidz aren't bringing so much news to this Metric tune, except some tiny electro-tricks, but we can't blame these three Japanese people, their Miss Mars song is soooo good. We keep playing the sond till the end, just because it's good to hear Emily Haines' voice sometimes.

4) Röyksopp x Beyond Deep

Il se trouve que je ne sais pas trop quoi dire sur ce remix qui est une des nombreuses pépites dont le contest organisé par Röyksopp a accouché, à part qu'il est très propre, très sympa à écouter, propice à une réflexion intense devant la fenêtre par un jour pluvieux. Le dernier album des norvégiens, Junior, est un album très complet qui se laisse facilement apprivoiser dès la première écoute. Quant à Beyond Deep, c'est un jeune hongrois (tiens donc) qui qualifie ses prods de musique "émotronique". Ça promet.

Hum, I don't know what to say about this remix which is one of the numerous lucky find of the contest set up by Röyksopp, except it's very clean and pro, very fun for our ears and helpful to deep side-windowed thougts on a rainy day. According to me, the last album of these Norwegians called Junior is very complete and easy to tame at first sight. Beyond Deep, it's a young Hungarian boy (humhum) which is composing 'emotronic' music. Whoa.

5) Röyksopp x Maxime Dangles

Ce remix-ci, il envoie du lourd, l'instru est génialement pensée. Et à ma grande surprise Maxime Dangles est un jeune français habitant Valence et à 24 ans l'une des récentes révélations du label allemand Kompact, numéro 1 de la techno minimale. Ce jeune homme à de l'avenir.

This remix is heavy, the instrumental part is awesome. I was surprised when I learnt Maxime Dangles was a young French aged 24 and one of the recent revelation of the Koln-based label Kompact, number one when it's time to deal with minimal techno. This young man might have a bright future.

6) Fenech-Soler x The Phantom's Revenge

Fenech-Soler, c'est un peu la nouvelle sensation outre-Manche, un groupe qui joue par terre emmêlé dans ses fils de guitare ce n'est pas si fréquent après tout, non? Et puis leur single Lies, c'est de la bombe. Remixé par un superhéros nimois, ça devient de la bombe provençale qui sent l'aïoli. The Phantom's Revenge, c'est le projet solo de Tony, un grand blond qui aura 26 ans à Noël, qui habite toujours chez ses parents et qui à la phobie des araignées. Mais passons les détails, Tony est le Jedi de la disco music, que dis-je, le Luke Skywalker du dancefloor, qui n'hésite pas à enfiler les pattes d'eph et sortir son sabre laser clignotant pour faire sa fête à Dark Vador. Que la Force soit avec toi, Phantom.

Fenech-Soler, it's kind of the new sensation in England, a band playing on the floor rolled up into their guitar wires that's not so frequent, isn't it? And their single Lies rocks, I swear. Remixed by a French superhero, it double rocks. The Phantom's Revenge, it's the solo project of a tall blond haired guy named Tony, which is about to be 26 years old at Christmas but still living at his dad's house and afraid by spiders. But hey, let's forget this details, Tony is the Jedi of disco music, well, he's the Luke Skywalker of the dancefloor, never hesitating to put on his flared trousers and to take his flickering laser sword to party with Darth Vader. May the Force be with you, Phantom.

7) Frankmusik x Russ Chimes

Le dernier pour la route, un condensé d'éléctro-pop à l'anglaise façon Frankmusik remixé par Russ Chimes, très bon une fois de plus.

The last but not the least, an electro-pop song made by Frankmusik and remixed by Russ Chimes, one more time a very good job.
