Listen: James Blakes Remixes D’Angelo

6 Feb

During a guest DJ spot on BBC Radio 1 this past weekend, James Blake celebrated the return of neo-soul artist D’Angelo by remixing his Voodoo single “Left & Right.” The remix was made under Blake’s Harmonimix moniker, under which he has remixed the likes of Snoop Dogg and Destiny’s Child. The remix is a fantastic reworking of the original, adding hazy effects and vocal manipulation akin to much of Blake’s work, so give it a listen below. During the DJ set, Blake also mentioned that he is currently working on his sophomore LP, with a possibility of its release by the end of 2012.

Listen: Florence & The Machine – “No Light, No Light” (Dave Sitek Remix)

20 Dec

After having remixed MF DOOM’s “Rhymin’ Slang” just last week, Dave Sitek, of TV On The Radio and Maximum Balloon, is at it again, and this time around he’s remixed Florence & The Machine‘s “No Light, No Light.” The song, which was one of twelve featured on Florence & The Machine’s recently released sophomore album Ceremonials, will be released as a 12″ single on January 16th, and Mr. Sitek’s remix will accompany it as a b-side. The remix does change the song, however, slightly sacrificing the sombre mood of the original in order to make the song more danceable. Despite that, though, the two songs will make for an excellent single, so check out the remix below, courtesy of a premiere at FactMag.
