Interpretations



 Up first we have a really beautiful remix of the 90's classic Wonderwall. I love what Questions does here; he's managed to tie in the acoustic and dreamy feel of the original, while still bringing the track in an entirely new, electronically lush, direction. 


 AIR is not a band you'd typically expect to see alongside French electro DJ's Etienne De Crecy and Alex Gopher. Yet, all three of them manage to find a harmonious middle ground here that unfolds over 5 minutes to form a truly awesome collaboration. Ash Sync builds out of the ethereal French sound that AIR's made famous over the years into a gorgeous synth-feuled riff that bears the markings of Gopher and Crecy. Pure gold.

 This remix by F.O.O.L. is simply epic in proportion. The synth progressions are nothing short of masterful, and everything about this track screams "play me as loud as possible" ... to quote one of the lyrics, "what are you waiting for?"



 If you haven't heard it yet, Deadmau5 has released a new track by the name of A City In Florida. Its sound retains elements of Joel's older work while still having a distinct new flavor that feels similar to Sofi Needs A Ladder.  Perhaps what we have here is a good indicator of  the next mau5-album?


 I went on a Calvin Harris binge recently, listening to every track that I could find by the man, and in the process I rediscovered a couple of my favorite remixes that I hadn't heard in forever. They're both must-haves for any fan of the scottsmen (or good music, for that matter).

HOMEWORK 
 I'm honestly not sure whether or not it's possible for me to post these days without including something from Dada life. Their sound is infectious and it's dangerous and I can't get enough of it.


 Sultan & Ned Shepard take this Sander Kleinenberg track and push it to the next level, putting together a pulsing, irresistible drum beat that serves as the perfect canvas for the zeitgeist-capturing vocal sample. Club. Anthem.
