Buenos Aires is totally bueno. Been here for 4 full days and feel like I've done a month worth of stuff. Very cool city. Not sure how much time I'll have to yap on here, so I'm guessing most of these posts will be fairly brief. Sozski. Here are some songs from the vault.
So.... Everyone loves The Rapture. Both their albums are long time megafaves of mine and the older they get the fresher they get, I reckon. These are a few of my favourite dancified remixes. The DFA dub is a really slick reworking with some gorgeously constructed sounds, in true DFA style. The Tenderlions mix is probably my favourite of the lot - a totally classic song that gets blended up with a bit of clubby electro vibes and some funky bassline grooviness. I used to punish Ewan Pearson's mix on the decks way too often, kind of forgot about it for a while but giving it a good ipod revival now. It's a really cool version! And the Prince Language edit of Get Myself Into It is in for good measure, a more DJ friendly option of my personal 2006 (may or may not be correct year) summer anthem.
The Rapture - Sister Savior (DFA Dub)
The Rapture - House of Jealous Lovers (Tenderlions Remix)
The Rapture - I Need Your Love (Ewan Pearson 'Stay In School' Vocal Mix)
The Rapture - Get Myself Into It (Prince Language Disco Edit)
I wish I wasn't so useless at speaking spanish. Aside from asking for beer, counting to 6 and thanking people left right and center I'm pretty useless. Loving the size of beer servings here. And the weather. Not loving cinnamon on top of cappuccinos. What's with that? Seriously, worst combo.
