Aeroplane vs Friendly Fires vs Flight Facilities – I Crave Paris

I Crave Paris by Aeroplane (Official)

I’m usually not into mashups but I am an enormous sucker for the Aeroplane remix of this Friendly Fires song. It was my fourth favorite song back in 2008. I still love it. Now some band I have never heard of is riding the coattails much in the way new producers remix a great song. Maybe this is just a remix of a remix and not quite a mashup. Either way it sounds pretty good.

Azari & III – Reckless For Your Love (Tensnake Remix)

Hopefully as you make your way through list after of list of someones favorite songs, albums, remixes, eps, tv shows, magazines, people etc… you decide to check a few of them out.
I’ve been going through Pitchfork’s song list this morning and found this excellent remix coming in at #21. Bummed I missed this one throughout the year. It certainly would have made my remix list. Great jam.

#1 Antoine Dodson - Bed Intruder Song?

It’s tough to leave Antoine Dodson off this list after the all the time I spent laughing at “Rape Intruder Song,” but alas, no room for memes here. These are my favorite remixes of the year. With all of these songs producers took the original material and made a better song than the original. CFCF has been on a truly hot streak while Memory Tapes is losing it quick (and that is not for lack of attempts). The I Am Dead remix from CFCF has been one of my favorite songs all year and was even the centerpiece to my mix from earlier this year, “The Sun is Like a Flower.”

Drop a note in the comments and let me know what I missed that’s better than anything on this list.

Boiler Room – Jamie xx Mix

Check this Jamie xx mix from November 30. The music in this mix is ridiculuously fantastic but my god the guy who puts these Boiler Room parties on in London insists on speaking over the whole thing and it’s impossibly annoying. BUT, the guy clearly has a good party. Looking at the site, Jamie Woon, James Blake, Seams, Falty DL, Mount Kimbie, Brackels, Untold… it goes on and on. This is the first I’ve heard of Boiler Room. I’ll have to check out additional mixes. Let me know if you know of any good ones and link em up in the comments.
