PREVIEW THE DJ: Kid Dub’s MySpace
REMIX#1: Daft Punk’s “Around the World” (Kid Dub Remix)
It seems twisted to think about life before Daft Punk, but now after their TRON song leaked, then surfaced rumors (yet false) about a scheduled Coachella performance and now this remix, it’s fabulous having these beautiful french techno geeks back in pop culture. Daft Punk are remixed like crazy, but it’s harder to sort through the garbage, and then sometimes you find a gem like this. It’s secret is its minimal adjustments and just the right amount of new jazzy flavor. This is a masterpiece remix by Kid Dub.
REMIX#2: Marlena Shaw’s “California Soul” (Remix by Diplo/Mad Decent)
Diplo has got to be one my favorite DJs, and he has a proven track record after working with M.I.A., and yet he still finds the time to mix old songs like “California Soul” by Marlena Shaw. It’s so random, and somehow he twists and beats it into an instant club classic. I doubt Shaw would appreciate the new sound but I’m sure she likes the new found attention.
