Compromise Music Presents: The Remixtape, Vol. I

2 Apr

I’m pleased to eventually be able to introduce you to a project we at Compromise Music have been working on recently. Basically what happened was, we gathered a few of our favourite producers, and got together for a bit of a mixtape. What we did is got them to remix one song of our choice, and one of theirs. Here’s the final project, which I think it’s fair to say all involved are very pleased with! I’m honestly proud to be introducing these artists to you and also to be at least partially responsible for the existence of some of these tracks! You can grab the tape here, but most of the tracks are available individually on the artists Soundcloud pages, listed below.


1) Yelle – Safari Disco Club (HLM Remix)
2) Trophy Wife – Microlite (Randy Lauren Allien Remix)
3) The Streets – Soldiers (Danny T Remix)

5) French Films – Take You With Me (HLM Remix)
6) Foals – Miami (Randy Lauren Allien Remix)
7) Jamie Woon – Missing Person (Danny T Remix)
8) Skream – Midnight Request Line (Ollie Macfarlane Edit)

They call me the curator…

That’s right, none of this is down to me, it usually is, but these tracks have all found their way to me via other people’s help – i.e. they aren’t available for download anywhere. So thanks to AlexDaftPunk91, VarianceJD and Ollie Macfarlane for these! Also cheers to Michael Padilla for the Young Empires recommendation. Thanks over, here’s the music. Also notice how I didn’t use the ‘thanks for the music’ title, I want you to remember that!

Coeur d’amour – Feel The Rocket

I found this one on Youtube and trust me, it’s nowhere to be found. Shame, as it’s super-duper awesome French House. The guy himself even has a Soundcloud yet hasn’t uploaded this track, which is a tad mystifying as it’s his best by a long way.

Maxwell D – Gone Away (Jamie xx Remix)

I actually cannot get enough of Jamie xx’s work at the moment, everything he’s doing is so good. The style of his remixing has become a little less abstract, it’s kept all the good features but has become that bit more refined from the early days, and you’ve gotta hand it to him, it’s pretty awesome.

Jamie xx – Far Nearer (Ollie Macfarlane Edit)

I said I had a thing about Jamie xx didn’t I!? This is a great remix from Bristolian Ollie Macfarlane.. the originals pretty good (Jamie xx made it, duh) but he’s actually made it even better, this feels like a family-friendly take on garage! And whats more, it’s a grower, so check it out and hit him up on Soundcloud for more garage goodness..

Young Empires – Glory of the Night

You have to hand two things to these guys. Firstly, they know how to choose a clichéd sounding track name. Secondly, they sure as hell know how to write a good electro/indie/rock crossover track. Looking forward to hearing more from these guys, only seems to be demos at the moment although they do feature on a Kitsuné compilation…
