Usher – Love in this club (MSTRKRFT ‘picks up the pieces’ remix)
– The original made me break my speakers –had to go out and purchase new ones in order to listen to the MSTRKRFT remix. The remix made me feel less pissed off at the original version.
– The original was minimal, shitty, and it put me to sleep. The Soulwax remix remains along the same vein –except it’s minimal, awesome, and keeps me awake. very important. (i’m really down with minimal, actually. Just not when it sucks.)
– I have only listened to CSS remixes. I am pretty sure their original tracks don’t even exist.
***the stars mean you should listen to it more than once. many times. and it’s not that shitty transcode that’s been floating around.
This is my challenge: to MSTRKRFT, Soulwax, Midnight Juggernauts, and anyone else….
MAKE KANYE WEST’S LATEST VOCODERED FUCK UP OF A TRACK UN-SUCK. Is this track not salvageable in any way?
I haven’t found one yet. I’ve heard them all up until right now so…. still no. we need some MIDAS-style touching up in here.
Neon Coyote is no stranger here. The east coast duo seems to never stop turning out [good] tracks.
As if we haven’t had enough D.A.N.C.E. remixes, here’s a remix of the remix and I assure you, if I had a nickel for every D.A.N.C.E. remix that sounded like this, I would be swimming in nickels scrooge mc duck style. They cut and splice the MSTRKRFT drum samples and drop …who???? BRTNYSPRS IN YO FACCCEEEEEEEE. so sick.
I also got a couple other new NC tracks, but for now, I’ll have to leave you with just one of them. Double Dutch Drama is a classic “Neon Coyote” signature sounding track that we have all grown to know. The beat will instantly make you want to bounce. —CHECK THE BEACH BOYS DROP!!!!! NEXT LEVEL SHIT!!! so many good cameos in this one.
ps: do yourself a favor and listen to ‘ghetto galactic on NC’s myspace
BONUS!!! just received this track, and I was bouncing. so it is going up here by default. There’s a special place in my heart for ghetto tech and Cerebral Vortex straight outta SF delivers.
This just in, a TUFTSMANIA exclusive, new Neon Coyote remix!!
The Brooklyn duo John and Will make up Neon Coyote. With a recent spot on Indie 103.1’s “NEON NOISE” with D.A.N.C.E.P.A.R.T.Y., they’re on a hot streak and here’s what they have to say about their style.
“Neon Coyote is constantly trying to make every song and mix sound different from the last. I try and listen to songs and see if they could be portrayed in a different light like with the Eluvium or Mstrkft remix, but then sometimes its just fun to pump the shit out of a track like 9H20. So no matter what, we try to keep people on their toes.” – Will
“We got a dark side, a coke rap side, a mellow side, a dirty electro side, and a kodak moment side.
And we’re trying to do it all at the same time. We’re hard working. I just wanna see people freak their stuff when they’re listening to our tunes.” – John
I’ve been in contact with these guys for a minute now, and all the things I hear coming from their magic fingers has been showing improvement, attention to detail, and completely awesome-freak-out-bangyourhead music.
Now instead of a mixtape, here are some very well thought out BARELY remixes. I call them barely remixes because they only borrow elements from the originating tracks and don’t at all resemble the tone or mood of the original artist’s intent.
SO! In this 2 part series, the first that we’ll be releasing exclusively on TUFTSMANIA….
Coyote sounds, hand claps, awesome ‘duran duran’ tom rolls. (recipe for awesome)
I will admit, the first time playing this track, I was a little skeptical after hearing it was a remix of a MSTRKRFT track (who remixes MSTRKRFT???), but I was proven wrong and have been bouncing non stop. Also repeating this track all weekend and every time I listen, there’s always another element to discover. This shit is seriously so multi-layered! It’s like Girl Talk but with more finesse. You’ll definitely feel it deep within your loins when the rhythm breaks down in the 2nd half of the song.
Honestly, I really can’t get over how much I love the handclaps. They do me so well.
Thanks Neon Coyote, you gave me techno rabies.
!!!check back tomorrow for part 2 (get ready, you will freak)!!!
