I’m a week into my Southeast Asia trip and as expected I haven’t had much time to post some music. Luckily I’ve been listening to a ton of mixes so musically my sanity is intact. Even on an exotic trip I still enjoy listening to tunes even if that means I’m not totally unplugged.
As of now I’m in Can Tho (above) at a nice resort after spending a few days in some jungle huts along the Mekong Delta. I woke up early (6am) to catch some American Football and listen to some music so as to not waste the day.
The track I’ve enjoyed the most so far is a superb remix from Sasha of Hot Chip’s ‘Flutes.’ Cheers from Vietnam!
Hot Chips – Flutes (Sasha Remix)
Todd Terje is a regular round hur so I’m just say enjoy your weekend fellow space cadets… and this BEAUTIFUL track.
Hot Chip – How Do You Do (Todd Terje)
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)
I think I’m going to start posting 4-6 songs on Fridays without much of a synopsis. Work and play don’t allow for touch much internet postage time so here’s some fresh tracks that I hope you enjoy as much as your weekend.

Flight Facilities have a brand new single called ‘With You’ featuring the Hot Chip drummer Grovesnor on vocals and it’s superb.
The Syndey duo has been all over the place since 2010′s single ‘Crave You’ which featured vocals from Giselle. They’ve also had tremendous success with fabulously done remixes from some of our favorites: Holy Ghost! and Cut Copy. And who can forget ‘Foreign Language feat. Jess’ in 2011. So needless to say, I’ve been eagerly anticipating this release which you can grab today!
There are a ton of really great supporting remixes too. Danny Daze does his thing per usual, but my favorite is the recently blogged about duo, MAM, which add an extra layer of oozing disco summertime boogie. The original and MAM remix will be on repeat for some time and I’m sure this track will soon be remixed by everyone and their mother because who could possibly NOT touch this one.
