Hello! It’s been awhile. Anyways, as you guys probably don’t know, in addition to blogging about music, I also produce my own music, under the name Electric City. I’m not like big or anything, I just mostly produce music because its like a creative outlet for me, and its very relaxing/therapeutic after a day at school or work! :) Anyway, I finished up a new track today, called Spies Among Us! It’s got a nice blend of acoustic/electronic sounds, and it’s got a nice beat. (If I do say so myself. :P) I’d really appreciate if you guys would check it out and have a listen, I hope you’ll enjoy the song! :D
If you wanted to be super extra awesome, you could reblog my post, so that other people have the opportunity to listen to my music! Many thanks in advance if you do.
have a nice day, take care, all the best, yours truly,
Kylie Minogue - Get Outta My Way (Penguin Prison Remix)
Sometimes, I’ll listen to a song and be like, WOW. How are you so fucking incredible? Penguin Prison does this to me often. This guy has got to be a musical genius. I’ve posted some of his work before, and if you’ve got me as a friend on facebook, you’ll know that I post his stuff ALL the time. He’s just great. Like Shook, Breakbot, Kavinsky, he’s bringing back this rad retro synthpop deal which I’m really into right now. Cept’ he likes using more dance-able beats I’ve noticed. Which I’m all for. :)
—Anyways. The chunk of Penguin Prison gold I’m going to share with you guys today is his remix of Kylie Minogue’s Get Outta My Way. The original song is alright, but Penguin Prison’s rework is really one of those songs that makes me get up out of my seat and just dance like no one is watching. Haha. I guess, if I had to use a word to describe it, it would be, sexy? It’s got a really full beat, and a pumping bassline which gets you moving. So listen to it, get addicted like I have, and listen to it some more!
Till next time,
OH. On a side note, I’m trying to get more followers so I can share more awesome music with more awesome people! :) So reblog if you think I’m awesome. Or not.
To the like, two people that read my posts. (Haha.)
Sorry I haven’t talked about any music in a while! I’ve been on spring break over the past week, which was incredibly relaxing. It’s so nice to break out of your routine once in a while ——> but school starts up again tomorrow. :( Oh well, at least we have the summer to look forward to. :P
Before spring break, I got a chance to check out the movie “Hallpass”, which, I won’t bother to review. BUT. There was a nightclub scene in the movie, and this song came on! The track came out in 2008, along with alot of other great Australian synthpop stuff from the likes of Cut Copy, PNAU, and the Presets. If you haven’t had a chance to listen to this song, PLEASE check it out, you wont be disappointed.
Deadmau5 - Sofi Needs A Ladder (Cut & Paste Re-Rub)
So. You guys have probably checked out Deadmau5’s new record 4x4=12. Regardless of whether you loved it or hated it, you’ve probably noticed the many, many remixes of the track Sofi Needs A Ladder, partly due to the remix contest that was held on Beatport. Anyways, the original is arguably the standout track from that record, and it’s been really interesting seeing diffferent producers re-work the song. I find that this one really brings the song to a whole new level, that breakbeat keeping everything moving along will not let you sit still. :)
Groove Armada feat. Will Young - History (Grum Remix)
As you can probably tell from the tracks I’ve blogged so far, I’m a big fan of the whole 80’s synthpop/ new wave thing. This tune, is no different lol. The original was great, but a little more downtempo and chill, this Grum rework really lifts it and makes it alot more dance-able, but be sure to check out the original as well! I really dig the steady bassline, it works really well with those classic high flying synth pad chords.
Whitest Boy Alive - Golden Cage (Fred Falke Remix)
I love how some songs just have a way of picking you up off the ground. I’ve been listening to this song for like a year now, and whenever I feel shitty, it completely lifts me.
It’s beautifully retro, but wonderfully current. The Whitest Boy Alive’s stuff tends to be really good to listen to anyway, but I feel like Fred Falke really took this song to the next level with his rework. The synths are such a throwback, and the song has this particular atmosphere that makes you dance and keep listening.
