- Hot Chip – Day & Night (Daphni Remix) – Domino Records
To me, this is the only way to listen to Hot Chip. More breaks, less vocals and volle Pulle. Was released as a limited editin 12″ for record store day but is now also available digitally.
- Lana Del Rey – Blue Jeans (MK Dark Blue Dub)
Like an old school 90ties MK mix, but better: the trade mark chopped up vocals are back with phatter beats. Marc Kinchen recently returned to house music (besides producing Pitbull) and I’m still in love with him. And not just the music. This is the best of the 3 remixes he did of Blue Jeans. You were sorta punk rock. You were sorta punk rock. You were sorta punk rock.
- Shalamar – Make That Move (AC Re-Edit)
Recently found this re-edit of Shalamar’s disco classic. The full vocals only kick in at the 4 min mark. Until then the remixes rides on the feel good rhythm. LOVE IT. Free download.
- Jesse Perez – Dejen De Comer Tanta Pinga – Hot Creations
Gets the dance floor going every time.
- The KDMS – Wonderman (Original) / Wonderman feat. Alexis Taylor (Justus Köhncke remix) – Gomma
Kathy Diamond is the lead singer of duo KDMS, who just released their album ‘Kinky Dramas & Magic Stories‘. The current single is Wonderman Listen to the original version and the cover/remix with vocals by Alexis Taylor (of Hot Chip) remixed Justus Köhncke. BAM.

They tried to make me go to rehab but I said no, no, no
Tracey Thorn’s second solo album, Out Of The Woods, is going to be released in March 2007. You can listen to the first single, It’s All True, (including the trippy Martin Buttrich remix of the same) at her myspace page.
Still, my favourite Buttrich remix is his version of Moloko’s Familiar Feelings.
Steffi introduced me to it.
