Post-Christmas/Pre-New Year’s Dance Party

How was everyone’s holidays? Did you spend them in Toledo? If not, then you did better than I.

Actually, during my trip I went to a few good record stores in Columbus and Dayton (I know! Something good in Dayton!

Number 1 (Alan Braxe and Fred Falke Instrumental Remix)
I totally thought that said “Fake Instrumental Remix” and I was like “what the fuck is a fake instrumental?” I think I need new glasses.

This is an actual, non-fake, instrumental, and one of the better instrumental remixes I’ve heard. It’s totally space disco and I love it. They should play this in a club in Mass Effect 3. It’s also great because it allows me to enjoy a Goldfrapp song without having to hear Allison Goldfrapp’s voice.

It brings back bad memories…it’s a long story.

Daft Punk
Around The World (Tee’s Frozen Sun Mix)
Around The World (I:Cube Remix)
Around The World (Motorbass Vice Mix)
I got these great remixes from a test pressing promo, complete with handwritten notes on the label and no tracklisting (I figured out the tracklisting by looking online). While the first and third remixes were released on various CD singles, the second mix was a vinyl exclusive from as far as I can tell, and a rather limited one at that. Of course, it’s the best one of the bunch as well. Go figure.

Gus Gus
David (Darren Emerson’s Underwater Remix)
David (King Britt’s Underwater Remix)
David (Medicine 8 Remix)
I thought the line “I still have last night in my body” was icky at first, until I recalled several hangovers of my college days, and suddenly I identified.

Of these three remixes, the Darren Emerson one is the best. But that really shouldn’t be a surprise now should it?
