BOTR vol 01

Welcome welcome welcome to a new series I hope to be posting at the end of each month. Some of you are already aware that I have a Best of the Month (BOTM) series that I maintain here on The World Forgot, but this is something new. I present to you Best of the Remix, or BOTR for short. I’ve noticed a wonderful trend lately that has made the remix of a popular song almost as ubiquitous as the original recording. It seems as if anyone with a laptop and a few spare hours manages to remix, reblip, or rework a song into something new. Now, granted, not all of these remixes are any good, but how are you to know the good from the bad? That’s where I come in. Presented here for your listening pleasure are the best remixes I heard during the previous month. Enjoy these tracks and come back next month for vol 02.

All the tracks in one zip file : here {zshare = left click}

mp3 : Andy Williams – It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year (A Shrift Remix)
mp3 : Bloc Party – Flux (GoodBooks Magnetism Mix)
mp3 : Britney Spears – Piece of Me (Bimbo Jones Club Mix)
mp3 : Daft Punk – Da Funk (Armand Van Helden’s Ten Minutes of Funk Mix)

Notable standouts in this crowded first class are the Justice, TV On The Radio, Gwen Stefani, and Bloc Party remixed tracks. The rest are solid as well and I hope you enjoy them all.

Also, later this week I’ll be posting my best albums of the year. You might be a little surprised at my choices {as in you might have never listened to my number one and two slots}.

  1. first i was surprised that anyone would remix sigur ros. now i’m surprised that it actually sounds so good. strong choice!


  2. hey slacker, i was skeptical at first listen of the sigur ros remix. especially because staralfur is my favorite sigur ros track of all time. after listening to the entire remix though i knew i had to include it.


  3. The remix of Staralfur is amazing.
    Also, the remix of Analyse is pretty good.

    Thanks for the lovely set! Happy New Year.

    I definitely just subscribed to your atom feed!


  4. to be honest Disco i really don’t know where a lot of these tracks originally hailed from. i get a lot of email, random links, and i read pretty prolifically {and download from blogs prolifically as well} so i can’t say for sure where that particular mix came from. i can say that it is good though.
