Mid Semester tests finally finished yesterday, after a month or so of hard work. So, freedom ensues. A huge weight off my shoulders, it really is. Well, that’s given me time to procrastinate, as you can imagine, and here’s how I spent some of that time…

Pyramid – Solar

Pyramid is a young French producer, best known for his remix of Air, which I featured a couple of weeks back. Apart from some confusion about his genre (French errors from me!) it went down rather well. Fast forward a couple of weeks, and he sent me this, his latest tune.

VanGuard – Loving Someone Else

I think this one’s going to down the Fake Blood route and become the next French House tune to really penetrate the charts. I don’t know what the sample is but it sounds a bit like Say Say Say by Michael Jackson. This one sounds pretty good from the word go and to be honest it didn’t quite breakout into something as good as I expected. It’s still pretty good though, don’t get me wrong.

Thomas Bangalter & Falcon – So Much Love To Give

You should know that Thomas Bangalter is one half of Daft Punk, but he’s also done some pretty awesome solo work, which you might not be aware of. His remix of DJ Mehdi is my favourite but I recently rediscovered this golden nugget from the early noughties. I guess you could say it’s a bit long at ten minutes but nonetheless it’s a great track.

Johnny Cash – Hurt (Nico Pusch Remix)

I’m really getting into a lot of tracks like this at the moment – tracks which break the holy commandments of music. There are certain legends who really shouldn’t be remixed. It takes real audacity to tackle a work of theirs – because it’s so hard to improve on them. However, Nico Pusch has just taken Johnny Cash of that list – he’s still a legend, but clearly, he can be remixed.

Elvis Presley – Fever

Obviously Elvis was way way before my time, and actually even before my parents time. Not that he was tremendously popular in Yugoslavia anyway! But despite that I’d heard this countless times, and yes I like it, but I’d never really bothered to get it. Well I’ve just rectified that and here’s your chance now…
