Maybe if we all scream loud enough, Sven of The Videoband will finally leak/release/materialize/shit out the final mix of La Parisienne. (please check it on myspace if you haven’t)
In the meantime, he’s been teasing me with a number of other remixes which I’ve liked enough to write about.
The teasing, hasn’t stopped, but thankfully everything they send my way is gold!
Here are 2 new remixes.
First up is Sam Sparro’s synthy funk track, Black Gold. If you’ve never heard of the guy, peep his myspace and check ’21st Century Life’. I don’t know much about him, but from his myspace, he kind of looks like a douche. It says he’s on a ‘major label’. Maybe his PR team should hire a new ‘myspace-friend-adder-intern’ and fire this guy who’s making his image really douchey.
Anyway, The Videoband has a knack. That is, they choose tracks with potentially life threatening vocals, slice, repeat, distort, and process them into a beast that has new life and probably way more appeal to you and me. Black Gold is one of these instances. I don’t recommend the original track in the LEAST, but if you do accidentally listen to it with your pitchfork-loving friends, you’ll realize that The Videoband knows what’s up in the ‘vocal-lyrical-fucking-shit-up’ department.
Secondly, David Guetta needs no introduction. The Videoband shows us their take on Guetta’s ‘Delirious’. While this tracks vocals aren’t painful to listen to, The Videoband works their vocal remixing magic on this track and turns the vocals into instruments rather than stupid self-loathing words.
Voices as instruments? Less words, more sounds. Less people sounding stupid, more music sounding better?
PS: keep screaming for The Videoband to drop the Parisienne track. When they do, you’ll see it here.
