Wednesday – Electro House remix. 22/02/12. Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris – We Found Love (Thell Bootleg)

Wednesday’s child tried online dating,

Quick let me get this post out before this song gets overplaye… oh shit, im seriously watching cricket right now, New Zealand vs South Africa, and the song is blaring over the loudspeakers (not joking either, this is happening right now). If you need any proof of a song being overplayed, go to any major sporting match, and outside of Darude – Sandstorm (which can never be heard too much), every single song has been played at least 4 times today on every radio station, including talk back.

To get to that level though, it has to be a somewhat decent song right? Well maybe not, but this one actually is. I’ve long since lauded Calvin Harris for being one of the few producers out there that can lend their own voice to their songs. And Rihanna, the Barbados beauty, has always been a favourite of mainstream club DJ’s for her hybrid House-Pop. Put them together and you have a happy household where the only punches thrown are the ones of gleeful drunk patrons in the air every Friday night.

Shit, South Africa won, fuck Calvin Harris, Rihanna you bitch! Who else do I have to blame.. ahhh its all Guetta’s fault, it always it.

Just listen to the damn song for the 5th time today and add your number to the list of 134 million people who have watched the video.

So now to the real reason we are here today, Thell has released a free bootleg of We Found Love for your enjoyment, and trust me, it’s worth downloading.

A completely new percussive opening builds into the familiar happy chords of the original with Rihanna’s blabbing about falling in love in the back of a Volkswagon (Mallrats‘ fan will get it). This is a great track to play full blast with your little sister around as what appears to drop into the smooth bouncy house beats is completely ripped apart (like your sisters childhood) with stupidly aggressive sawlike electro that has been run through a power blender packed with protein powder and bricks. Drop this on your Wednesday night set to amp the energy in your crowd, speaking of amps, you might want to lower the gains beforehand.

Tuesday – Tech House. 14/02/12. Happy Valentines Day! DJ Antoine – Every Breath (Clubzound Remix)

Tuesday’s child, in lieu of her boyfriend, cuddled her Lotso teddy bear to sleep every night,

This is the perfect song for my Valentines day. A song about a lover, about passion, heartache and heartbreak. Sting himself even muses about how people mistake this song for a dainty little love song, and whilst it does sound like you would imagine it would at the end of The Vow with Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams running towards each other on the beach in a torrential downpour with her clothes clinging tighter and tighter to that tighter Canadian tight body that is oh so tight… mmmmmmcAdams..

Anyways, to those like me experiencing the ups and downs of a long distance relationship, you might find solace in the words of the song, to yearn and to learn, but more importantly to believe. I love my girlfriend with all my heart, and she will understand the pains of this song for they are very real pains, but in order for hurt to exist you need to know how happy you can be, and I’ve never been so happy than when I’m with her. So Happy Valentines to you my dear and to all readers out there. Enjoy Sting’s most successful song for what it is, a REAL love song.

For those who are like, fuck that shit mate, I don’t want no depressing as song to represent the love I have for my darling Fatima, then I have an epipen of a decent tech house remix to treat you of that obvious Sting allergy you have. DJ Antoine has robbed the original lyrics of any deeper meaning and with the help of fellow remixer Clubzound; they have added an upbeat melody of progressive keys and electro bips & stabs over a strong delectable tribal Tech bassline. With clever short breakdowns the original is paid homage, but overall this is a completely new sound that is quirky, energetic and fun.

Friday – House remix. 03/02/12. Brass Knuckles – Lie To You (WhiteNoize remix)

Friday’s child looked innocent,

Would I Lie To You Baby? is the answer to every question ever posed to Charles & Eddie by their past girlfriends. These two make Bert and Ernie look straight. Whatever their sexuality, I’m sure this song got them a lot of T&A (but most likely A).

Not enough is known about Charles Pettigrew’s life, other than studying yazz vocals with Ron Burgandy (and claiming to be straight). He unfortunately succumbed (don’t you think succamb should be a word?) to cancer in 2001, so we will never know what he may have lied about.

Eddie, however, has a whole lot of WTF’s that need a Would I Lie To You? answer. The one-time Scientologist’s first band was formed with Cliff Burton of Metallica and Mike Bordin of Faith No More (at the age of 12 mind you), he helped produce tracks for 2 Live Crew and The Dust Brothers, not to mention S Club 7! Now he is one half of the Electro duo The Polyamorous Affair with his (female) wife.

We all had a little guilty pleasure in this song in the early 90’s, and I wouldn’t lie to you about the fact I have lent my vocals to this song a few times (alone, in the shower, in the mountains, in fucking tibet). This is one of those songs you ‘accidentally’ put on your one-night-stand iTunes playlist and hope she is drunk enough to love it or too tired to notice.

Brass Knuckles have smashed their way through the faces of many a club goer with their take on this 1992 R&B classic. The Miami based trio have replaced Charles & Eddie by the less androgynous Chipmunks, whilst still holding true to the original as the riffs melt off Nu-disco electro synths smoother than lamb in a slow cooker. The solid beats are as strong as Charles’s personal trainer and whilst the tempo is raised significantly, it rubs as gentle as Eddie’s handshake. Check out the Brass Knuckles Lie To You EP for two more decent remixes.

WhiteNoize has beefed up Brass Knuckles remix with a steroidal injection that is worth lying to the federal jury about. With groovy glitched up vocals that speak lies of better days and a darker faster bassline, this remix is one that will be played for years to come. If you are looking for a strong, yet fun and happy remix to give you that extra burst of energy after dropping Bingo Players – Cry (Just A Little) to follow the ironic trend of cheesy 90’s anthems turned insanely awesome dance tracks, this is the remix you want. Would I lie to you? How dare you question me bitch!
