R/MX

r:mx

perhaps you have noticed a common thread that pulls together most of the mixes so far… there is usually always a remix in there somewhere. i simply love them, and experience a serious thrill every time i discover one of my favourite artists has been remixed –  especially when it’s done in a creative way. i also find myself tolerating some commercial music that i wouldn’t usually listen to when it’s been treated to a great remix (ahem-britney spears-ahem)

so why not an entire mix dedicated to them, mmm? i knew this mix had to be kind of upbeat because of the debbie downer situation i probably put everyone into with ships in the night, and there’s nothing like an unexpected take on a favourite song to put people in a good mood.

  15. Radiohead – Nude (Holy Fuck Remix)
  16. Michael Jackson vs Telepopmusik – Remember The Time (Sleeper Heartbroken Remix)

ps: a couple of these might be considered mash-ups, but i think of them in the same way. this was also extremely difficult to cut down to a workable size. expect a volume 2 and 3 in the future.

    I know this will be good and I haven’t even listened to it yet. I downloaded Sprawl of Glass off of some music blog or another a week or so ago and I’ve listened to it many-many-many times since then.

    P.S. Thanks for all the blog reposting lately (my Palm Springs Mix & breakfast photo)!!!!

    P.P.S. Don’t know if you saw the photos of my kittens in the Palm Springs album, but I kind of feel like my grey cat is going to look exactly like this when he grows up (at least I hope so).

    Ohh good, I love the remixes in your mixes (especially that Beach Boys one!). I’m a HUGE fan of expertly-done mashups and was even thinking of devoting a mix of my own to them in the future. Can’t wait to listen to this, thanks!

    I can’t wait to listen to this! I’m traveling and was seriously in need of a new playlist. I’ve been following you since you posted ’10 of 2010′ and really look forward to your playlists. Yours and the ones my boyfriend makes me are the only playlists on my iTunes – haha! Thank you!
