Where My Head Is

I’m going to try and force myself to be productive with the blogging this week and I’m going to commit right now to two additional blog posts this week. I’d like to say that I haven’t been posting as much because I’ve been extra busy with work or, y’know – a life, but I’ll just be honest and blame Borderlands. That game is like crack with shotguns that shoot fire and lightening.

Basement Jaxx
Where’s Your Head At? (Extended Mix)
Where’s Your Head At? (Stanton Warriors Remix)
Where’s Your Head At? (Sounds of Da Future Remix)
Where’s Your Head At? (Jaxx Nite Dub)

I didn’t realize until a bout a year ago that this amazing track is based off samples from two – count ’em two – Gary Numan tracks. One Gary Numan song is amazing, and two put together is even more amazing. Someone should make a track samples 80 Numan tunes at once – based on my theory of exponential Numan quality that would be the best song of all time. These tracks actually are available on iTunes (well, all expect the extended mix anyways) but I don’t care. This track kicks ass and I feel like sharing these remixes. To quote a reviewer of the single on iTunes, “if you don’t like this song, there’s something wrong with you.”

Massive Attack
Safe From Harm (12” Mix)
Safe From Harm (7” Instrumental)
Safe From Harm (Just a Dub Mix)
Safe From Harm (Perfecto Mix)

Ooooh….pretty. I think Massive Attack’s Blue Lines is definitive proof that sometimes someone can actually make a perfect song. There are TWO perfect songs on Blue Lines (this track and, of course, “Unfinished Sympathy”). What’s more amazing than that is that there is also a perfect song on Massive Attack’s sophomore album Protection (“Karmacoma”) and three perfect tracks on their third album Mezzanine (“Angel” “Teardrops,” and “Inertia Creeps”). Sometimes I listen to Mezzanine and I have a hard time doing anything else because that music is just so fucking great that I just want to close my eyes and just take it all in. Okay, that sounds kind of gross, but I wasn’t going for the double entendre…okay maybe I was. Anyways, these remixes are from a 12” single. More awesome electronic music later this week.
