Dope Degree

Sweet & Sour Lykke Li

   Since her debut album, Youth Novels, was released in 2008, Swedish indie singer Lykke Li‘s tracks have been favorite in any electro-pop playlist. She was nominated for Best International Female Artist in 2009 Meteor Music Awards. Her inspiring compositions have been continuously remixed by top DJs and producers and these two are my preferences.

A Remix Gold Rush

   By the time I post this blog, I just realize that statiscally in one day I listen to electro/house beat music the most especially the remix tune. It has been just recent years since I started listening deeply to this genre and I have to say it really catches my interest. Listening to remix shares something in common with cover; the special connection the artists have with the original, and that makes it special track.
   Not like 4-5 years ago when Post Punk and Indie Rock music were all around and most youngsters wanna play guitar and be in the bands like the Libertines, the Strokes, or Kings of Leon, now everyone’s talking about David Guetta, Justice, Hot Chip and how cool these DJs/Electro groups are.
   Here’s some nice remixes in my playlist which I’m pretty sure these stuffs are beginner-friendly that could better your attitude to remix genre. Try them and leave the comment which one you like the most!

Acid Girls ft. Frankmusik – Wake Up (Meterhead Remix)
Friendly Fires – Paris (Aeroplane Remix)
Radiohead – Everything In Its Right Place (Gigamesh / DiscoTech Remix)
Le Prix – This Is Fiction (Sferro Remix)
Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix)
