Live On An Island (Nat Self’s Romance Edit)
Yesterday Sloth Boogie Blog hosted a party in London titled ‘FlinkMaPingo’. (Hope they had a good time!) For the evening they invited Nat Self, who is part of Zombie Disco Squad. SBB sent out an invitation for their party with a few additional downloads. One of those downloads was the Nat Self Edit on The Whitest Boy Alive‘s ‘Live On An Island’. You can download it here.
Together (Thand Remix)
Science fact about the ‘Epic Electro-House Banger‘. Ten out of ten times, that’s a term you can interpret as a warning. It means the track you’re about to hear is not very well-produced or innovative. It will probably be very remotely related to House music. It will definitely not bang anything. And it will be far from epic.
That being said, you’re about to listen to a pretty epic Electro-House banger. But it’s not as bad as it may sound. Thand is a Swedish producer, and the whole Electro vs. Progressive House is kind of his thing. He remixed Axwell & Ingrosso’s ‘Together’.
The remix starts out with beats and basslines, usual stuff. Then goes into first breakdown, which features the original vocals, additional synths and of course some white noise which builds up until 1.47. At that point I was preparing for a shitty drop and a massive facepalm, neither one happened. Thand actually put some pretty interesting synths in there. This is a pretty good remix, and maybe the production didn’t even need the vocals. I have to withdraw my statement. The sorta-’epic Electric-House Banger’-thingy can still work. (One out of a hundred times, but still.) Well played, mr. Thand.
