  • Blitzen Trapper Get Mixed Up for 'Sci-Fi Kid'

    When you're young, it's hard for your brain go to any less than a million miles an hour. Thankfully, Portland, Oregon's Blitzen Trapper relies on this A.D.D.-like aesthetic of working outside of the box, for they often blur the musical lines between folk, funk, and utter freakiness. On "Sci-Fi Kids," featured on the band's latest studio effort, Wild Mountain Nation, the sextet's refined mix of acoustic sincerity and electronic embellishments get a bit of a techno touch up. U.K.-based DJ Principal Participant brings you the "Kingswood" remix. Borrowing exclusively from the original song's chorus, this revamped rager opens with spaced-out synth beats, emulating a Nintendo night vision with intermittent sound effects, and an undeniable dance beat.

  • The Cribs Sate Dance Floor 'Need'

    What do you get when you mix three brooding British brats with a flashy foreign fiasco of funk? Well, a convincing, highly enjoyable gem of a collaboration featuring two of today's trendiest talents. The Cribs' sassy single "Men's Needs" has received an additional shake of spice from dance floor dominators CSS, who lend their Brazilian backbeat to the Brits' Alex Kapranos-produced breakout song. The remix preserves the single's best features; the hooky Strokes-eqsue guitar riff, two-step tempo, and lead singer Ryan Jarman's screeching vocals. Throw in CSS' touch of ambient sonic swirls, double-time egg shake sha-shas, and unique vocal manipulation, and you've got a track that's doubly dance floor-ready.
