I don’t have much time for a preamble this week, but know that it was once again a great week for remixes. Urban Contact returned fresh off an excellent reworking of Freedom Fry with an even better take on Marlon Roudette, while DiscoTech continues their streak of weekend ready bangers on their remix of “Classic”. Bag Raiders made a surprise reworking of BANKS’ “Beggin For Thread” and they’ve pretty much earned my eternal trust since “Shooting Star”. Last, but not least, mash-up maestro bvnny gets back in the game with an addictive mash with everyone from Dillon Francis to Young Dro.
Favorite of the week comes from X Ambassadors who make Ed Sheeran’s “Don’t” even more infectious than it already was. Throwback is a class from Grandtheft who disco-fied Santigold’s “Shove It”. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve included that one on a weekend playlist and I’m still not sick of it.
