Robotic Pirate Monkey released another remix today that I’m diggin pretty hard. I posted another Gotye remix of their song, “Somebody I Used To Know,” which kept more of the original song in tact. This time, RPM, takes a much more aggressive path and I think the results are phenomenal. Check it out for yourself!
Gotye – Somebody I Used To Know (Robotic Pirate Monkey Remix)
I know I’ve being slackin on my indie game. I mean it’s pretty hard considering many bands come and go in such a short period of time. It’s crazy that with a little blog coverage, some hypem love, and people talking that all of sudden you go from some buzzband to heading a major US festival in a matter of a year. At any rate, I am super late on the Gotye song. I had just heard it on the way back from Tahoe this past weekend. I instantly noticed the powerful voice and thought out loud that this has to have been remixed a thousand times…. someone had to of touched it in the right way. Surely enough my girlfriend dropped some untz and indie knowledge bombs via her blog THEUNTZANDTHEINDIE. Taken from her post today (song and editorial):
“One of the biggest songs of last year has one of the longest lists of remixes rolling into the new year, but Myndset’s go is my favorite. You are pulled in during the first few seconds and it really doesn’t let up, firmly tracing the original song while somehow showing it all from a totally different angle at the same time. You can almost hear Gotye’s anger/frustration/bitterness in the heart(beats), and the result is an urge to dance it out, hard. Perfectly done. #untz”
