The way these guys cut/slice/rip up vocals, rhythms, and re-dub tracks is reallllly appealing to me. It’s probably just the fact that they lay a dirty, synthy, stuttery guitar sound over all their tracks. (read: vst, bag raiders, knightlife etc etc) –but I couldn’t care less.
–And I’m not complaining.
GIVE US MORE. <3
I’m going to quote/paraphrase/borrow what CRLZZZ from hipsterrunoff said about Yelle – Ce Jeu: (ok, full quote)
“Ce Jeu” Remixes are the new “Drugs In My Body” Remixes are the new “D.A.N.C.E” Remixes are the new ______ remixes, etc etc.
INAHALE THIS MY FRIENDS!!
Yelle – Ce Jeu (slaughtered by the videoband rmx)
Up next, Rihanna – Umbrella. Now, from the day this original track was conceived I avoided it like the plague due to my hatred of everything that leaves this girl’s whorish mouth. I was surprised by a remix I heard of it on my boy CITS‘ website (rest in pieces, cits the music blog), and I told myself that remixes of Rihanna could be acceptable.
PRIME EXAMPLE: Videoband thankfully throws some more layers over her god-awful voice. Paper bagging it so to speak.
Thanks, Videoband, for making abominations like these more palatable, and making hipster children believe Rihanna could be cool.
