Luckily my friends at Binary and Nightwaves were eager to help. Feeling like a match made in the dreamwave heavens, a connection was made between Despotz Records‘ own ultra-pop-funk O’Spada and Binary’s Nightwaves. They were given the task to remix/rework/whatever you want to call it O’Spada’s latest single, “Ten Strikes”. After just a short time they were ready to deliver the final product.
The result: TWO amazing renditions of one excellent original track. yew! Taking the original clean-cut/pop-funk groove, Nightwaves, took O’Spada to the land of bongos and reverberating synths. They did what they do best by creating an impossibly dreamy atmosphere and turned this squeaky clean track into a dream of cosmic proportions. TWICE.
O’Spada – Ten Strikes (Nightwaves Midnight Fire Remix) –It starts fairly minimal with skeletal rhythm and stark vocals which gradually builds atmosphere –eventually into a thick pulsing aural beast just before breaking to the amazingly lovely chorus progression. so smooth. a knife through butter, creamy camembert, etc. massaging your auditories.
take note: BONGOS BONGOS BONGOS!!!!
O’Spada – Ten Strikes (Nightwaves’ Sunday Morning Remix) –hand claps, reverb, and FM synths on a sunday morning is the best way to have any morning.
So which one is your favorite? Both? Thought so. No, but really. Let’s hear it.
For those of you who are just joining the mania, O’Spada is AWESOMELY fresh. You can hear what I posted about them a while ago, here.
Here’s the original version of O’Spada’s ‘Ten Strikes’
Shouts to all who put in the time to make this happen. Bloodthirsty Crew, Carl-Marcus, Josh, Kyle, the whole Binary Fam, O’Spada.
I rarely get short and sweet fan mail. The messages I usually get are long winded, full of unanswerable questions, and usually end up with me in tears.
…but wait… another message from Elle Estrange??
Elle Estrange, do you have more in your life than blogz?
A while back Jason inRGB got the idea of creating moustache stickers to post up on street advertisements or anything else that needed some good moustaching. I agreed that this would be epic.
We come up with probably hundreds of ideas weekly, none of them ever make it past the, “man, it would be totally sick if…” stage.
Well this made it past that stage, the rest of the stages, and it’s definitely a reality now.
Congratulations Jason, for creating an empire of Moustache Me goodness.

All I ask is keep the rips 192kb/s+. Anything lower shouldn’t even exist in life.
