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.

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.



the videoband: the saga continues

cut that bitch up

I mentioned THE VIDEOBAND! about a week ago. I hope I gave it ample time to sink into your marrow filled bones.

The way these guys cut/slice/rip up vocals, rhythms, and re-dub tracks is reallllly appealing to me. It’s probably just the fact that they lay a dirty, synthy, stuttery guitar sound over all their tracks. (read: vst, bag raiders, knightlife etc etc) –but I couldn’t care less.

–And I’m not complaining.

Dear Videoband,

GIVE US MORE. <3

I’m going to quote/paraphrase/borrow what CRLZZZ from hipsterrunoff said about Yelle – Ce Jeu: (ok, full quote)

“Ce Jeu” Remixes are the new “Drugs In My Body” Remixes are the new “D.A.N.C.E” Remixes are the new ______ remixes, etc etc.

INAHALE THIS MY FRIENDS!!

Up next, Rihanna – Umbrella. Now, from the day this original track was conceived I avoided it like the plague due to my hatred of everything that leaves this girl’s whorish mouth. I was surprised by a remix I heard of it on my boy CITS‘ website (rest in pieces, cits the music blog), and I told myself that remixes of Rihanna could be acceptable.

PRIME EXAMPLE: Videoband thankfully throws some more layers over her god-awful voice. Paper bagging it so to speak.

Thanks, Videoband, for making abominations like these more palatable, and making hipster children believe Rihanna could be cool.

the videoband, an introduction

February 7, 2008 | Filed Under music | 1 Comment 

Perhaps they don’t need an introduction, butTHE VIDEOBAND! trio from France, Sweden, and the Netherlands, has been making me freak out, overheat, melt and turn into vapor for about 2 months now.

I had originally been introduced to them through their remix of London’s Pop outfit, Sugababes “About you now” by a friend of mine. The stuttery, distorted, high contrast sound was right up my alley. They have since put out remixes of Yelle, Rihanna, and La Parisienne (exxxxxcellent) to name a few. All of these remixes are very, very attractive. (check them out on the myspace –or keep checking here)

definitely better than the original….but you be the judge:
