Back at it after some huge grad school projects, Thanksgiving and an excellent birthday. Considering I only took one week off from Remix Friday, it is quite amazing how many big mixes came out. Avicii finally dropped his heavily teased remix to Syn Cole’s banger “Miami 82” (buy the full edit on Beatport), Xaphoon Jones dabbled with the indie pop goodness of Grouplove’s “Ways To Go” and The Chainsmokers spiced up blog favorite “Fix This” by The Colourist. My favorite remix of the week comes from Remix Friday mainstay DJ Topsider. His pairing of Ciara’s underrated jam “Overdose” with the Dillon Francis/Totally Extinct Dinosaurs’ hit “Without You” would be considered a medical miracle if remixes were, ya know, surgical. Seriously, “somebody call the doctor” for Ciara already. Throwback remix of the week is Cut Copy’s infectious take on Ladyhawke’s “Paris Is Burning”. It is insane to think of how much Cut Copy owned my iPod during the summer of 2008.
