We’re back with some solid tracks grounded in the electronic & remix tradition that have nothing in common except that they excel at taking our mind off the fact that the workweek has begun again. Enjoy!
Boston based producers PRFFTT & Svyable put out a more uptempo bootleg of Ellie Goulding’s “Hanging On,” thereby creating a solid beginning to our playlist, and furthering her inevitable status in the near-future as “most remixed” singer-songwriter.
“Every Language Is A Waterfall,” PRFFTT’s mashup of Coldplay and Porter Robinson is a good place to go next. Poppy but it works.

Crystal Fighters’ “Earth Island” was a big, deserved hit a couple months back. Youan lays down a more relaxed remix here. I can’t say I like it as much as the original, but it’s an interesting take.
And… Die Antwoord. Die… Antwoord. To be honest, after their first album came out and was, despite a few brilliant songs, largely a dud made for the only-hilarious-sometimes music video opportunities, I gave up on them. But this remix is sneaky good. Maybe they need to put out a remix album and let better producers have a go at their admittedly fascinating Afrikaans wordplay. This track is unique. Thanks, Nero!
