Sunday (MERRY CHRISTMAS) – Deep House remix. 25/12/11. Chris Isaak – Wicked Games (Benson! Club remix)

Sunday’s child was born.

Merry Christmas to all!

Isn’t it great when you listen to a sexy track and think how nice it would be for you and your special someone to spend a little alone time, burn some incense, dim the lights and put on the little ditty you just found, and then fuck each other senseless.

Now just think that your parents probably did the same thing and I bet you have not dedicated a single second of your life to think to what song you were likely conceived to, until now. Was it 2 Live Crews – Me So Horny? Was it Billy Ray Cyrus – Achy Breaky Heart, maybe Green Day – Dookie, all good choices. Most likely if you are in your early 20s, it was to Wicked Games by Californian-heart-throb Chris Isaak.

After seeing the film True Romance, I wanted to become an Actor, you got paid millions of dollars to do all these hot & steamy love scenes with beautiful actresses (for reasons unbeknownst to my adult self, as a young teenager I thought Patricia Arquette was attractive). Turns out musicians get to do the same thing, check out this video of Isaak with top model Helena Christiansen, which was rated one of the sexiest videos of all time.

Young hotshot Producer/DJ Benson! hailing from Melbourne, Australia most likely released this amazingly groovy Deep House remix to celebrate his conception, he even dedicates it to Mums & Dads on his soundcloud page. Benson was born a year after the original was released, a coincidence I think not. A clever glitched vocal sample is used as a repetitive hook over the top of Isaak’s Southern Blues vocals. Never losing the sensual vibe of the original, the deep bassline creates a sexy rhythm that may well make you query your decision making abilities over the next 9 months.

Saturday – Progressive House remix. 17/12/11. Robyn – Hang With Me (Avicii’s Exclusive Club mix)

Saturday’s Child was shopping at IKEA.

Sweden has a lot going for it, most people might stop at IKEA and beautiful women, but I would like to add their phenomenal music scene; starting out in the 70’s with ABBA, 80’s with Europe, 90’s with The Cardigans & 2000’s with the Hives… hmmm alright the whole phenomenal thing might be a little over the top, but as of last year, Sweden was the third highest music exporting country in the world behind the USA and the UK, so something good must be coming from there…

So lets take another look at this, Swedish House Mafia (Axwell, Ingrosso & Angello), Alesso, Avicii, John & Jesper Dahlback, Dada Life, AN21, Adam Beyer, Robyn, Eric Prydz (and thus Pryda & Cirez D), 1/2 of Pleasurekraft & Adrian Lux & this is just a list of DJ’s I have bought music from this year. The 2010’s are looking rosy for the Swedish dance scene, and its good to know that this Mafia knows how to live in harmony with the competition.

Today’s remix is a work that brings together two people from the above list. One is a 32 year old who has been recording tracks from 20 years and the other is a 22 year old who has been recording for only 3 years. One is somewhat attractive, single, with a killer voice, the other looks like the About A Boy kid all grown up and probably never has a had an empty bed (but that doesn’t mean he isn’t single), and has never sung a word on any of his tracks. Both are blonde and both are super rich, although the latter is probably better known with two number 1 tracks in the past year.

Robyn released Hang With Me as an acoustic version on her Body Talk pt. 1 album in early 2010. It’s worth checking out for the vocal quality, not to mention a nice string arrangement, however it’s the electropop version that got the people moving. Body Talk pt. 2 saw a very club worthy lead single, a fairly simple 4×4 laid under a growing melody of upbeat synths that brought her lollipop vocals to life. It lies at an awkward speed between House & Moombahton and was begging to be remixed as one of them, the former won out in late 2010 with Avicii’s exclusive club mix. The young superstar, who had recently changed his moniker from Tim Berg, put the magical touches on Hang With Me that allowed DJ’s all over the world from having to work their pitch faders with this beautiful uplifting progressive house remix.
