Sunday – Deep House remix. 29/01/12. Evermore – Can You Hear Me? (Dcup’s horny mix)

Sunday’s child was antipodal,

International fans will recognize the ethereal piano infused hallmark of Evermore through their songs from hit tv shows The OC and more recently Greys Anatomy. Their earlier songs Lights Surrounding You and It’s Too Late brought them international stardom that only The Naked and Famous (check here for a good N&F remix) have been able to replicate as a successful New Zealand rock band.

While this song sounds like the question that every DJ asks his friends the day after a gig, (hearing fatigue is no joke and its worth checking out this article), Can You Hear Me was Evermore’s last single and their most emotionally charged song to date.

So what does a good man to when his girl is all riled up with emotions spilling out of their pores? He calms her down and finds a way to sex her up, or the other way around. Point being, listen to the original and then follow on to hear the audio metaphor I speak of.

The name Duncan MacLennan might not register too many hits, but type in Dcup and once you get past all the fun pillows, you will see thousands of hits dedicated to the breakout hit of 2010 with Yolanda Be Cool – We No Speak Americano ( with an awesome tech house remix here).

MacLennan will be no one-hit-wonder, the man has 49 tracks listed on Soundcloud and I can tell you there is more quality than the New York Giants receiving core. It would have been easy to write up his Disco honey dipped Gotye remix, but as we have already blogged about Someone That I Used To Know here, I wanted to dig a little deeper and mention this gem of a Deep House track that is over an year old now.

Obviously being a New Zealander myself, its great to write about talented Kiwi’s, but to see this trans-Tasman love is heartwarming, Dcup has even remixed P-Money’s Say Yeah to seductive quality, so it’s good to know that even though we own the Rugby and Rugby League world cups and beating them in Cricket, there is no angst.

Duncan has gone all Barry White on Evermore and told them that everything is going to be alright (as he lit the candles and turned down the lights, making sure to rustle up the potpourri leaves and burn the incense). His unreleased version of Evermore’s 2009 single is a bit of Nu Disco brilliance rapped up in a blue eyed soulful package and posted to the world (or soundcloud) as a sexified Deep House remix designed for any hot lounge (as long as it ends in the bedroom).. “No baby, I don’t remember what you were upset about either, now just move a little to the rig.. awww yeah that’s it.”

No download specified unfortunately, but leave a comment on his track and maybe he will relent?


Thursday – Drum & Bass Remix 10/11/11. The Naked & Famous – Young Blood (Antiform & Audiosmith remix)

Thursday Child was haunting.

To say Drum & Bass in New Zealand is popular is an understatement, to say that watermelons are the greatest thing to happen to cheap alcoholic sporting fans is too. But what will be said in years to come is that The Naked & Famous are amongst the top indie rock bands in the world I believe can never be overstated.

After seeing them in Chicago at Lollapolooza this year, it made this kiwi proud enough to want to make a remix straight away of their hit song, ‘Young Blood’. Luckily for me and luckily for your aural pleasure, it had already been done. A couple of locals Antiform and Audiosmith were handed the reigns of making an official remix (that apparently no one can buy). In true Ricky Bobby fashion, they took a great product & they made it their own, incorporating TNaF’s ambient riffs and haunting vocals, baby jesus couldn’t have made a better remix.

The energy from their upbeat mix will leave you refreshed and wanting more.
