To start us off, here’s a mellow, vague vocal, organ synth track. It starts out as an unbelievably vague amalgamation of ambiance….all lightly held together by a simple string of rhythm. Look out for the breakdown @ 1:20 –this is where things get interesting. The vague ambiance is now starting to take shape with a buildup in melody and Boys Noize throws a high pass filter on the drums right before it breaks chorus. Melody is lost as quickly as it took shape. The minimal approach and mid-verse mutation to this track shows how versatile ‘Noize and Siriusmo can get but don’t worry, that delicious melody that had its fleeting stint of fame comes back for an encore of church organ goodness right before the end.
fuck, did i just write that?
Ok now that the deep stuff is out of the way, keyboard bass synth 4 life. Arpeggios 4 life. no thinking needed. GET YO’ ZINZIN BITCH
Late Pass Bonus:
Dragonette. Remember that fun as hell Van She (Tech) (call me, bitches) remix of ‘I Get Around”? They’re back and this original single is so money. Overdrive Overdrive Overdrive Overdrive (Super Keyboards) Overdrive Overdrive Overdrive.
Here’s the Van She Tech remix for those who haven’t heard. Blog vintage! So mode….I could eat that van she tech synth for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

I’ve been stockpiling stuff for the summer, arguably my favorite time of the year in southern california. You’ll hear the majority of my stockpiling efforts at any pool parties I might be playing, but here, have a taste.
notes: WHIMES (definition) – Wind Chimes, hood talk.
AH! BON(Us)…do you like bass?
I heard this months ago when Classixx played the Echo and had been dying to get a playable version of it. It wasn’t until recently with the Cobrasnake video hullaballoo did I come across this Royal Rumble Edit. xoxo.
I had a post in the works featuring some of Siriusmo’s last year stuff (Diskoding era). That will be pushed back approximately one post day (could we days, weeks, months, years). This is because of a very important item a Chris who will remain anonymous sent me during a club ichat meeting.
I’m not sure where it’s from, but it sounds like some of his older stuff (2007, pre-diskoding?). Anyone know? (I know it came out on a 2 track split with Harry Axt pretty recently (Grand Petrol – GP23), but the track itself is a definite re-release. Possibly going to be a single?)
It’s PERFECTION. don’t remix this, if you do, do it right and keep the crawling octave progression.
Bag Raiders ….currently in full focus mode for the upcoming full-length? (hell yessness)
follow @bag_raiders and say hey.
Semi-blog-vintage Siriusmo post to follow soon. xoxo

First of all let’s get into something that’s been owning my itunes/car/everything for the past couple weeks. Passion Pit’s latest album has been pretty sugary good to me, but the real gem here is Calvin Harris’ remix of ‘The Reeling’. He pulls the one synth I wanted to hear more of and turns it into a disco-harris-moment. Can you believe the bass on this one? Money.
Passion Pit – The Reeling (Calvin Harris Remix)
ps: check the pepsi commercial Calvin Harris did the score for. Can someone please get me a single of this? (link) (seriously, watch that shit over and over)
Here we go. Got this bad boy from Linus Loves a short while back after some weird email attachment issues. It’s a remix of Pixie Lott’s ‘Mama Do’ and………yep….we’re getting DEEEEEP. So deep in fact we need to adjust the pressure regulators for this.
Lastly, the Phoenix remixes have been coming through pretty much nonstop but I have to admit I haven’t been impressed. Is it because they make the vocals sound so ridiculously awkward? Maybe.
Someone prove me wrong, but this remix of Phoenix by Classixx is getting DEEEEEP like, fully. Kind of makes it a big deal. Here’s in my opinion, the best of the bunch. Somewhat getting Aeroplane vibes from the intro. agree? (check link to compare)
pps: sincerest of apologies for the poor writing. I’m sick. HAMTHRAX GOT ME!! send me tea and kisses.

My backlog of ‘to shlog’ is getting longer and longer. Bad for me, good for you. Really a lot of good shit coming around these days and I don’t anticipate it slowing down anytime soon. Some of my favorites are locked down in the studio getting their chops ready to record new albums, so be ready!
Up next in the list is from Yuksek. The EP “Extraball” recently dropped, I think. It is a massive EP and features Amanda Blank’s vocals with remixes by ….drumroll….omfg….Burns, Pilooski, Breakbot, and a cover by The Shoes??? WHAT.THE.FUCK.!!! MADNESSSSSS. Get this. ASAP.
Anyway, here’s Breakbot’s remix which is undeniably ‘Breakbot’. Funk funk funk funkkkkkk. the synths and vocals. perfect for days. make you do the funky bot.
(ps: Breakbot also just signed with Ed Banger, finally. can’t wait to hear what comes of this very holy matrimony)
Alright and since anything Pilooski just kills me, here it is.
Seriously. Pilooski edits are the standard for edits. Anyone listen to the Franki Valli ‘Beggin’ Compilation? Pilooski MURDERS THE SHIT SOLID. check it out asap.
Q: How do you make a classic, classic-er?
oh, hold up, did you say you wanted more Breakbot? thought so. just look in the history my friends.
