RocketNumberNine – Matthew & Toby (Four Tet Remix)
This is wicked remix from Four Tet of a RocketNumberNine track. They are a live band literally of brothers who opened with Four Tet for Radiohead at the request of Thom Yorke himself. Their sound is drum heavy, electronic intensity in full flow and 2012 will no doubt see RocketNumberNine destined for bigger things.
Four Tet’s remix is a slow building emotional powerhouse. What a tune!

Hot Chip – Look At Where We Are (Four Tet Remix)
You want to know what the aliens listened to when they crash landed in the ocean off the coast of primordial Africa??? This.
Elements of trance, prog house, african music, and steel drums at the very least make this an interesting tune. It makes me feel weird and I’m not sure if that’s in a bad or exciting way. Either way I’ve given it a bunch of listens with the conclusion being that it’s an insanely addictive track. Thank the space lord I wasn’t driving because I could have easily fallen off rainbow road.

Gottfried Beyer, who was recently featured here with an amazing remix, has just released a fresh new original. From him:
“This is first original tonal music track I’ve done in over a year. It’s inspired by / a celebration of / my response to:
• PWM and Wavetable synthesis.
• Romance music of the late 1980s / early 1990s
• Harold Faltermeyer
• 1980s guitar music, in particular: Van Halen, Racer X, Cacophony, Satriani and Vai.
• Pat Benatar’s song Invincible and ……just her in genera”
Uhhh that’s awesome!

An edit from a mysterious producer who has disappeared off the interwebz. This edit is fiyah and so is Prince. Get down withe the funk.
“”I’m not gonna kill you. I want you to do me a favor,
I want you to tell all your friends about me.”
“What are you?”
I’ve seen the future and it will be
I’ve seen the future and it works
And if there’s life after, we will see
So I can’t go like a jerk“
