Quick hits.

Just a few bits and bobs. There's been a plethora of new music around at the moment to entertain ears, so here's a few that have piqued my interest recently.

This track by We Are The Horsemen has been doing the rounds on Radio One recently, and for good reason. Simply re-edits are often the best way to go with remixes, they keep the vibe of the original, whilst sprucing it up in a new manner that's fresh to here, though sometimes widely different remixes are just as effective, as our next track will show. Expecting some big things from these guys.

Good old Fantastic Mr. Fox has been at it again, this time with a remix of Hyetal's "Phoenix". The original was amazing as it was, so it would take something special to improve on that. As such Mr. Gomberg has taken a widely different route with the track, and the results are spectacular. The track is also available for FREE!

Finally, this is old news, but it's worthwhile I assure you. This fanmade video of Boards of Canada's "Everything You Do Is Balloon" shows what can be done with very little expenses using archive footage. It's take from an old American bicycle safety short-film, and goes perfectly with the music. Does make you wonder though, what were people on back in those days!?

Coming up soon: review of Bon Iver's self-titled second LP, Mixcakes volume 2 and festival previews 2011. See you soon!
