I’ve got two remixes for you today; two remixes that are on different ends of the my musical spectrum.

First we have a remix of “Swoon,”  The Chemical Brothers‘ first single of their latest album, Further. Boyz Noize gets his hands all over this one to make it a pure banger of a remix. The glitchy bass kick and the catchy chorus will instantly be stuck in your head. This song has an energy perfect for the long summer nights ahead, where despite the closing hours of the day, you want to keep going.
Just remember, to fall in love. There’s nothing else. There’s nothing else.

From the energy packed dance floor to the sustained ambiance of the sea floor, the talented duo Royksopp remix the minimalistic pioneer Steve Reich to create a song that makes you feel as is you’re peacefully strolling underwater. “Electric Counterpoint: III. Fast (Royksopp’s Milde Salve)” is such a nice and relaxing track – clocking in just over eight minutes, it’s more or a journey than just a song. What really got me feeling like I was underwater was the fact that this remix totally reminds me of the underwater level in the original Donkey Kong Country. The Royksopp remix is of course better, but I can’t help but think I’ve been transported to an SNES underwater dimension. After listening to this song you feel crisp and cool, as if you had just gotten out of the water.

And here is that Donkey Kong song I was talking about. They totally sound similar.

Be Rad. Enjoy.
