Look on the Brightside

Here are two remixes of huge rock anthems.  The is first remix is by two of my favorite producers right now Bass Weazal and Mikey Hook who mash down The Killers‘ track Mr. Brightside.  The second is a Feed Me (aka Spor) remix of the Muse smasher Knights of Cydonia.  I’ve been sitting on both of these for awhile, I’ve had my fun, now its your turn.

Whoop There It Is

Rudder does it again with this absolutely sick remix of Calvertron and Banga‘s track Whoop.   Rudder always comes correct with phat fidget lines and a mashup of genres within one track.  This time its massive bass, old school breaks, and a disgusting half speed breakdown.  Straight gangster.

Lets Get Tropical

This is the first Laylow and Twitch exclusive from our friends Australia Is An Island.  You can find AUIAI  in one of three places: court-side at a New York Knicks game, rocking out to a crowd of scantily clad young women, or hard at work in the studio.  From the sound of of their newest track ‘Club Rat,’ you can tell that they have been busy little devils.  No strangers to the electronic scene, AUIAI is comprised of Dubchi and Kuato.  They make noisy electro music with fat basslines.  Drop this track and you’ll have all the club rats up in the booth.  Prepare to get tropical!

Jack’s House

LFO FTW!  This track has some seriously angry bass movements warbling along to a sick 2-step beat.  With a debut album coming out on Cheap Thrills in early 2009 everyone has their eyes on Jack Beats.  Gaining massive success through a string of top not releases including the monster remix of AC Slater‘s ‘Jack Got Jacked’ last year, its time for a full release filled with original heaters.  Here, Jack Beat’s remixes ‘What!’ by Dynamite MC.
