Cold War Kids, Chew Lips, Lindstrom and Christabelle, Fever Ray, Drake, Passion Pit, Paper Route, Kid Sister, The Bravery, Don Diablo, 720Bass,

OKAY, so it's been an eventful week, I sadly had to say goodbye to my beautiful Dog Shema this week, after 16 years of life she finally passed on, it was very sad but I was with her to the last, sweetest dog you could ever meet and be bitten by, RIP!
I finished the Nick Cave book, The Death of Bunny Monroe which is excellent. ALSO I received a lovely gift out of the blue from someone special (you know who you are). I also received some bad news to do with a family member, I hope the prognosis is good. It's been a mad few months really, FINALLY 2010 is in sight, I for one cannot wait, it's been my worst year ever bar none (only 1 thing this year has actually been amazing). Anyways, without further ado, my musings are coming to an's what you been looking for, adore away bitches:

Cold War Kids
Long Beach’s Cold War Kids return with this soulful, firm-footed new one, taken from their forthcoming EP, Behave Yourself.

Forever (feat. Kanye West, Lil Wayne, And Eminem) (Steve Aoki Remix)
That Drake’s “Forever” is still all over the radio after four months in the wild should prove that it’s more than just a superstar posse cut for the sake of being a superstar posse cut. Good choice, then, for Steve Aoki to leave all four verses unscathed in his purposefully oversized club rinse, which will try to further ubiquitize an already omnipresent song.

Passion Pit
Little Secrets (Jokers Of The Scene Remix)
This fresh edit of Passion Pit’s “Little Secrets” by Jokers Of The Scene has been the arsenal cornerstone of basement DJs for weeks. The Fool’s Gold duo shapes the track’s gleefully wonky pop tune into a bass-laden, 4 AM club track, where the children’s chorus crests into a synapse-blowing crescendo (with lots more cowbell).

Paper Route
Gutter (Nick Catchdubs Remix)
This remix, courtesy of Nick Catchdubs, hones in on Paper Route’s electronic drama but fixes it up for clubland, substituting hysteria for something more dead-eyed and sullen, “Gutter” a drink thrown in the face of every man caught dancing with the wrong girl.

Kid Sister
Right Hand Hi (Kicks Like A Mule Remix)
O.G. British rave duo Kicks Like A Mule (aka XL founder Richard Russell and Nick Halkes) offer this loopy Big Beat version of Kid Sister’s “Right Hand Hi.” Mad tambourine!

Fever Ray
Now’s the Only Time I Know (J-Wow Mix)
This booming rain dance comes courtesy of J-Wow of Buraka Som Sistema and transforms Fever Ray’s original occult appeal into a ghetto-tech electro ballad fit for for the stickiest of floors.

The Bravery
Slow Poison (Of Montreal Remix)
The Bravery gets a weird and wonderful edit thanks to Of Montreal, who blend industrial noise, trippy handclaps, and needling electropop on this exclusive remix of “Slow Poison.”

Lindstrøm & Christabelle
Baby Can’t Stop (Idjut Boys Remix)
Esteemed London duo Idjut Boys give “Baby Can’t Stop” a very subtle refit, doing little more than dubbing out the vocal and extending the arrangement. Still, it’s worth the price of admission for the horns alone.

Housewives - Dirty Dancing (Jad Cooper Remix)
Coolio, well 720 BASS just sent me this as well, it features an amazing remix from GEORGE LENTON as well as others:
Man Like Me London Town Remixes
After an amazing, rammed to the rafters sell-out show at the Jazz Cafe last week, the band Man Like Me's star is in full ascent!
The rising popularity of MLM's London Town anthem shows no sign of stopping (they had to perform it twice to satisfy the ecstatic crowds).
Here at 720Bass we're proud to be releasing the immense London Town Remix package. Bringing you pure, unadulterated bassline filth...
The release is spread over both the Future Perfect (Electro House) and Wicky Lindows (Dubstep) labels, and will be available at all good vinyl and digital stockists from December 7th...
