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.
Oh, hey there. Just wanted to stop by and say hello. I’m still here, but barely…for now. To update you, I’ve been antisocial, keeping to myself and locked indoors; playing back records and music in the comfort of my own filth. Here’s a taste of what’s to come. You will be pleased.
Ed: It has a bit of a lazy start. apologies, I did this during breakfast. Groggy jones.

OK. Will you LISTEN to the Gigamesh remix of ‘My Girls’?? IT IS OUT OF CONTROL. I’ve been repeating it for a month and my goosebumps haven’t gone away.
here’s the Videoband’s bootleg ‘Shut up Chris Martin remix’ of Coldplay. Thank God someone shut that guy up already.
I got this e-mail last week stating it would debut on perezhilton last friday. After a weekend hiatus, I decided to try to find the premiere material to no avail.
So here you have it friends, YELLE’s new video, “Ce Jeu”, is officially premiering right here and now on TUFTSMANIA.
this is the most official official release ever, officially.
It’s been obscenely hot in LA and when it’s hot, you have a pool party. One of the requirements of a successful pool party is excellent music.
Who gives a shit about smooth technical mixing when you’re too busy blasting your friend with a Super Soaker 2000 Death Cannon Triple Barrel Lazer Machine Hydromaster?

PS: what’s the deal with hotlinking files? Obviously it’s an easy way to link to a file/mp3/whatever, but it totally kills me these days. I’m not making any money from this website, and when another site (sometimes even sponsored, to remain nameless) hotlinks to the files hosted on this site, I over-run my bandwidth allotment. I have TONS of bandwidth and it is usually pretty hard to do, but once it’s linked outside on other bigger websites, game over. There really aren’t any excuses with the multitudes of free online file hosting (zshare, megaupload, yousendit.)
I could care less about ‘being the first’ to break news on a track,
I could care less about getting credit for ‘being the source’ of a track,
and I could care less about getting a huge reader base.
Getting quality visitors works well enough by word of mouth.
So, other leechy music blogs, let’s show some proper netiquette…
…AND SAVE ME THE BANDWIDTH OVER-USAGE MONEY!
