Dance Electronic Mash-ups remix Remix Friday

Remix Friday: Louis Futon, DJ Cheapshot, ASTR, Clean Bandit & more

St Vincent-2 St. Vincent/Majestic Theater/Detroit/April 6, 2014

What a week, eh? I think I can finally say Spring has arrived in Metro Detroit and I couldn’t be happier. I hope to be blasting these remixes in my backyard with a beverage or 4. Louis Futon caught my ear with his take of Mos Def’s classic “Ms. Fat Booty”, while ASTR offered up a surprise remix of a recent Big KRIT cut and Perseus transforms Ashanti’s “Rain On Me” into a synth-friendly slow burner. Top remix of the week goes to Rainer and Grimm who make Sam Smith’s soon-to-be mega-hit “Stay With Me” into a dance-able affair.

In honor of OutKast’s first live performance together since forever ago, it seemed appropriate to break out I.M.Elliot vs. QUIX05’s classic remix to “Spottiottiedopalicoius”. The original is my all time favorite OutKast song and this the only other way I listen to it. Now let’s all be jealous of regular reader, Tom as he’ll be watching live at Coachella. There’s always the webscast, right?
