Was your Halloween party as wild as mine? I hope so. Tell me all about it. Please. Saturday, here in snowy Beijing, there was a much hyped (by me, in my own head) party at 2 Kolegas. Helen, lead singstress from Beijing's electro-sexbotic Pet Conspiracy, showcased her side-project group while opening the way for international superheroes Y.A.C.H.T. to make my day. It went way beyond the hype, if I may say so myself. I mean, if you were here in Beijing and you missed it...man, you missed it!
These last couple of weeks I've been filling my playlists with so many remixes of songs by Phoenix, and I've never even listened to an original track by them. I'm going to keep it that way for now. Here, I'll give you two, one from the aforementioned duo called Y.A.C.H.T. and another by the über-famous collective of animals. And since I do love to push repetition to the edges of absurdity, I'll give you a Y.A.C.H.T track remixed by Crazylamps' resident DJs, Classixx.
Phoenix - Armistice (Y.A.C.H.T. Remix)
Phoenix - Love Like a Sunset (Animal Collective Remix)
Y.A.C.H.T. - Psychic City (Classixx Remix)
And two wildcards: First, Feist's producer Mocky teams up with GZA the Genius of the Wu-Tang Clan for something short and sweet. Second, Björk remixed by Ratatat...enough said.
Mocky - Birds of a Feather feat. GZA
Björk - Wanderlust (Ratatat Remix)
