Creators Remix Roundup Week 34

Mark Ronson, James Lavelle and new music from CSS and The Horrors…
July 8, 2011, 9:38pm

Our Creators are a very talented and prolific bunch, and our inbox is always cluttered with alerts of new remixes and mashups from the incredible DJs and producers in our line-up. We just couldn't keep these fresh new tunes to ourselves because, after all, filesharing is caring. Here are our top picks from the past week.

CSS: “Hits Me Like A Rock” (Dillon Francis remix)

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from cheeky Brazilian pop group CSS (though they just released a track and mixtape two weeks ago). So while we’re sitting around waiting for the release of their third album La Liberación (out at the end of August) we’ll just have to settle for this remix from Mad Decent party boy Dillon Francis who infuses a good dose of tribal Moombahton into the effectively light-hearted jam, the first single off the album. Yeah, we get sweaty when we haven’t heard a really good song in a while too…


Mark Ronson: “Record Collection” (Felix Bloxsom aka Plastic Plates remix)

The first minute of Sydney-based producer Felix Bloxsom aka Plastic Plates‘s remix of “Record Collection” is almost unrecognizable, but then comes in a series of MNDR’s unmissable shrieks, and the familiar electronic trickling of the original’s opening. After the 2 minute and 30 second break, the song goes exactly where you want it to… which for us is a familiar glamorized rendition of the original (which was equally awesome). Not to spoil it for you, but Ronson’s voice is completely devoid from this version, which if you can recall, was the first time he had sung his own vocals.

Radiohead: “Everything In Its Right Place” (James Lavelle remix)

Radiohead‘s lead singer Thom Yorke felt “Everything In Its Right Place” was the perfect airy opener to their fourth studio album Kid A, which was released in 2000. The song’s composition, written entirely on a piano and computer, makes it a natural selection for fellow introspective, James Lavelle, to make his own. Lavelle’s version adds sporadic 8-bit tones, and is texturized with fast-paced drum programming, ambient synths and vocal scrambling. While definitely amping the impact, the remix certainly doesn’t lose its majestic qualities.
