2009: Remixed

January 10, 2010

Scenic World

Well hello there, and a belated merry new year to you. I perhaps should have written this up a couple of weeks ago, but I figured everyone would be getting sick of 2009/end of decade retrospective kind of listy crap, so have delayed until now. That and massive amounts of xmas/new year/deep winter apathy. Ennui if you will.

So here’s a selection of lovely compressed sounds that are mp3’s of some of the best remixes of that year that was 2009. 12 tracks that have often soundtracked my year, remixes that have really contributed something new to the original, and in many cases transformed into something wholly different, and yet equally wonderful.

Yes yes, it does include that La Roux remix from Skream, minus 1,000,000 points for lack of originality there, I know, but come on – it’s a killer track. Cringey pun intended. You’ll find a couple of Alex Metric ones thrown in too; in fact I probably could have included a whole album of these such is the busy nature of the talented electro fiend. A personal favourite of 2009.

A special mention to Two Weeks of Hip Hop, a Dead prez vs Grizzly Bear mash-up that I first heard from one of The 405 clubnights – a great find from our resident dj Wil Cook.

Also crow-barred in is a kick-muff Simian Mobile Disco mix of The Go! Team‘s Ladyflash – I’m aware it’s old, but only just discovered it this year and fell in love with the beast, so thought I’d include it as a cheeky little bonus.

Oh, and the photo included above  is one of mine – just because I hadn’t taken any in far too long, and a reminder I must take more. Also, where the playlist was created. A behind the scenes! Wow! Also also suits this blogs name.
