Let's Get Funked Up!
The songs below are some of the crackers that have made frequent appearances on my playlists this summer.
PNAU - The Truth (Jump Jump Dance Dance Remix)
M83 - We Own The Sky (L-Wiz Relick)
Coeur De Pirate - Comme Des Enfants (Le Matos Andy Charmichael Remix)
Little Red - Rock It (Jad And The Ladyboy Remix)
Probably my favorite four right now. I have included the original of Little Red's Rock It in a previous post but this remix is just as good. And I don't know what is being said in Coeure De Pirate's brilliant song, but who cares. It's awesome. And PNAU and M83's songs are just too addictive. One listen and you'll be begging for another sample.
Passion Pit - Sleepyhead (Starsmith Remix Ft. Ellie Goulding)
Ellie Goulding is unbelievable. Her debut album, Lights/Bright Lights, was very well received which was acknowledged when she won the Choice Award at this year's Brit Awards. Her voice is unique and she doesn't need to wear retarded outfits made out of raw meat to get noticed.
Ratatat - Wildcat
Finally, Ratatat! These guys have been around for ages and I've only recently discovered them after they collaborated with Kid Cudi on The Pursuit Of Happiness. They are a purely instrumental band that always have the craziest guitar riffs. Wildcat is one of their earlier songs but I will do a post of my favorites soon.
