a fine frenzy . now is the start

i haven't always been the biggest fan of a fine frenzy, but i just love this song. it's so fun! the song isn't even out yet, but you can preview it from the link above.

the naked & famous . no way (disfunktion remix)

i'm loving disfunktion remixes at the moment. the naked & famous remix is the perfect summer song. the melody on both are just amazing.

foxes . youth

i can't even tell you have many times i've listened to this song in one continuous loop. i'm completely obsessed with everything about it: the lyrics, the songstress and the melody. it's beautiful. and if you're in the mood with something with more bass, the adventure club remix is awesome as well.

the m machine faces

the m machine is something to be reckoned with. their music is completely epic, and bridges the gap between man and machine, combining emotional acoustics and electronic elements. 

purity ring . odedear

this song is seriously hypnotic. somehow sensuous and futuristic at the same time.

ko ko . float

whistling, tapping beats, and a fun harmony make this an amazing song. something you just wanna skip to.

the group called hr . my city

great hip hop. as simple as simple gets. 

amber of the dirty projector's voice is so unmistakable! i love collaborations, because you get the best of multiple worlds. double dose of funky from major lazer and amber, plus even funkier from the remix.

marina & the diamonds . lies (produced by diplo)

i love this song. marina's voice is undeniably gorgeous and you can just feel every emotion she's ever felt in her voice, it's amazing. the acoustic version, here, is just as amazing, if not better. 

question is, what can diplo not do? i really admire the guy. travels all around the world to study music of all cultures, then uses what he learns to influence his music. seriously, sometimes he makes the weirdest tracks of all time, but i love it. he takes kelly's song to a whole other level. so much soul and funk.

beach house . equal mind

new beach house album has been amazing so far and i just love her earthy, almost hypnotic vocals.

such a iconic song that's been remixed up and down, left and right. i really like tiesto's & hardwell's remix though. i can't say it's better than the original, but if i feel like something dancier, this does the trick.

quite arguably, the most beautiful song he's produced, second to 'strobe.' can you believe he found the vocalist to this song via twitter?! the song is based on this short story by ray bradbury, which is a great read, so if you have the time, read it!

straight out of the 'we found love' fame, calvin harris drops this remix of the scissor sisters and i'm in love. such a talented individual - he produces, sings and remixes!

logic . tic tac toe

my favorite white boy rapper of the moment! his latest release is just another song i enduringly love.

i love bon iver, but sometimes their music can be too slow-paced for me, so i love it when people remix them. in this case, it's a cover that i almost love better than the original. avec sans' vocals are gorgeous; laid on top of a more up-beat tempo, it's love.

tiesto & swanky tunes . make some noise ft. ben mcinerney 

this vocals on this song are amazing, thanks ben mcinerney! the melody still hits pretty hard though, so it's a good mix of both worlds.

crystal castles . empathy (spf50 remix)

this reminds me of something that would be on the skins uk soundtrack. it's a filthy underground kind of song, but then again what crystal castles song isn't?t

the asteroids galaxy tour . major (vacationer remix)

i'm a big vacationer fan right now, but usually their music is more mellow. this song is pure funkadelic, which surprises me, but i'm not complaining. i totally dig it.

kanye killed this remix. simple as that.

i think this will become a summer staple! windows down, sun on my skin, driving to the beach kind of song.

the cataracts always make some fun music but in combination with waka and kaskade, it's a total winner! they sample kaskade's "all you" so it's a great mix of the signature cataracts' beat, gorgeous vocals and some fly rap. 

he's backkkk! i love my man t.i.! if you're a fan of him, this song is just an instant like.

bondax . all inside

gorgeous song for this rainy weather we've been getting intermittently.

as i said, gesaffelstein is someone i'm really into at the moment. something about that french urban techno vibe i'm digging. if french techno isn't your thing, i still think you'd love this remix. just makes the song a bit funkier and not just fluffy.

i've always loved birdy, such a talented girl with an amazing voice! she takes skinny love to a whole other level, but this secret weapon remix gives me chills.

  2. i love this mixtape, as always i love your music choices <3

  3. You have the most _____ taste in music. And by blank I mean it's unreal and undescribable! Such a truly unique taste in music and so vast. Always find great gems about a year before they start getting popular or on a car commercial. You should definitely select music for ad companies. Will always be debted you for The Walkmen's Canadian Girl.

    1. Haha for a second there I thought something foul was going to fill that ____, and I was getting a bit antsy, but thanks so much for the kind words :)

      I've always wondered if I could do something like that - sounds like soooo much fun!
