19 Days Till Christmas


So here we are 19 days till Christmas, I haven't bought any presents yet and have no idea what to get anyone.  This situation will most likely not change till December 23rd.  I should probably spend a little less time listening to music on the internet and more time searching for some great gifts for my family and friends.  The good news is that with the time I've spent looking for new tracks, I have so many great songs to choose from to post today after a nice relaxing weekend.  I'm still searching for a couple tracks that Annie Mac unleashed on her BBC Radio 1 show.  First one is an older Friendly Fires track called On Board  recently remixed by Joakim.  This remix is huge, & delicious.  Best I can do is a youtube video for now.


I probably don't need to remind you that French people do it better, here is a Hey Champ remix of a Priors track called what you need.  Priors who are not a household name yet have a great sound.  Back in the day they were called Modjo and had an absolute monster hit called "lady" that was a club favorite at the start of the decade.  Here are both of the tracks, not much has changed, still have a great disco sound.

Priors 'What You Need (Hey Champ Remix)

Modjo - Lady (Hear Me Tonight)

David Guetta and Calvin Harris have been on fire in 2009.  I'm really not a big fan of David's work to be honest but I can respect it.  Calvin is just good sh*t, I didn't really get his "Ready for the Weekend" album at first until everyone else remixed it.  It's like he purposely left it raw for everyone else's creativity to finish off his masterpiece and he cashes in on the credit.  Here is Calvin remixing David Guetta's - One Love.  I was listening to this at my desk and started to look around for my glowsticks but couldn't find them. 



Here are a couple more tracks for the road that are pretty good.

Sia - You've Changed
