Lykke Li’s voice is a slice of heaven. There have been some awesome remixes of her music over the past months. I know a lot of these have already been posted but I write about music because I love it, not just to be “ahead of the curve”.
The great thing about the Lykke Li remixes that have surffeced that they are generally awesom Disco House that is easy to dance to. The AutoErotique Bootlegg that we talked about a while ago is a great track to vibe too. Punks Jump Up’s Remix of Breaking It Up is one of those songs you can never get enough of. Recently a couple of other artists have dropped some hot remixes. Gigamesh of Discotech (one of our favorite remixing crews here at SalaciousSound) has recently released a remix of Little Bit that became to compete with AutoErotique’s Bootleg to be my favourite version of the song. The Death to the Throne Remix is also nice but falls bellow the aforementioned. Pocketknife’s Remix of Breaking it up is worthy of mention but is still a far second to the Punks Jump Up version. Recently Kleerup decided to pair with Lykke Li and the result was Until We Bleed, an awesome song. It is wonderful as is, but you all know that I love a good remix and am looking forward to a mix that amps it up for the dance floor while maintaining the character of the song.
Recently, I have become inspired to learn how to DJ. There were a few factors that lead to this inspiration. DJ Cal? is an awesome DJ and seeing him practice made the task of learning appear daunting, mostly because actions that come so naturally to him are laborious tasks for me. That being said, I recently published an article where I discussed DJing being about the music and not just the ability to DJ. Listening to Treasure Fingers’ mixes has only increased my desire to start spinning because while I love hearing dirty dark Electro, I still want to move to Disco, Disco House and the like.
Hopefully people get what I am trying to say. The essence of this brief article is that I idolize Treasure Fingers mixes, love Disco House, want to hear more of it, and think Lykke Li has the perfect voice/style to be remixed into awesome Disco House.
So listen up!
