My Top 10. Top songs. For free.
So I’ve gone and put a list of my top 10 songs and remixes that are currently on repeat on my iTunes right now. Have a look and download all of them or any one them. Whatever tickles your fancy. The best part? They are free. Gratis. Oh and it’s all perfectly legal of course.
Told Her I’m From Compton (Electrojuice Remix) – The Floor is Made of Lava
This song is glitch, electro madness. As RCRD LBL says “Call it Post-rock, Club-rock, New-rave or Rock n’ Roll, it all comes down to the same. And “The Floor Is Made Of Lava” delivers”.
‘I’m Good I’m Gone (CB Remix)’ – Lykke Li
Lykke Li is everywhere these days and while this remix might be from 2008 it shows off the Swede’s vast talent. Pop bliss I tell you.
‘Heavy In Your Arms (C-Berg Remix) – Florence & the Machine
Yes, this song was on the Twilight/Eclipse soundtrack but then again it was a rather exceptional one. Florence & Machine’s have an otherworldly sound that is further amplified by C-Berg’s minimalist approach to the remix. I love it to bits.
I have a soft spot for Plan B. He turns from rapper to crooner with ‘The Recluse’. This remix is just something special. Think industrial bass and classical instruments. Think Dubstep with a lovely little twist.
‘Golden Train (The Royal Palms Remix)’ – Penguin Prison
This one is simply magical. It’s one of those deftly crafted remixes that could easily pass as the original and undoubtedly surpass it. It’s pure bliss.
Until We Bleed (Feat. Lykke Li) – Kleerup
It’s minimalist. It’s ethereal. It’s magical. Kleerup takes Lykke Li’s vocals and highlights her talent in such an understated way that only serves to create a more superior sound.
Sugarbaby – Robots With Rayguns
One of my favourite Robots With Rayguns tracks has to be ‘Sugarbaby’. It immediately conjures images of legwarmers, Pacman and general 80’s goodness.
Guilty Filthy Soul (feat. Wale) (Sam Ronson Remix) – AWOLNATION
Who knew Samantha Ronson could remix? Well she can. Think Guilty Filthy Soul and amplify it. It’s impossible not enjoy this one.
Hey Stop (Club Mix) – Sunday Girl
One of my favourite new artists Sunday Girl’s ‘Hey Stop’ has been by remixed by Rusko and this club mix is the perfect mix of indie and commercial. It has mass appeal and you’ll love it. It’s hard not to.
For You – Madeon
He’s French, he’s funky oh and he’s 16. Madeon is one of the most exciting up and coming producers I’ve heard lately. You’ll love him. Promise.
Golden Train EP – Penguin Prison
Last but certainly not least is the Golden Train EP by Penguin Prison. It’s a tasty little treat. It includes remixes by Sam Sparro and remixes of Marina And The Diamonds, Goldfrapp, Elllie Goulding and Kylie. It’s an amazing showcase of Chris Glover’s immense talent. All you have to do is sign up to his mailing list, it’s as simple as that.
