The Golden Rabbit - Farewell Tomorrow (Roquestar Remix)
As much as I like The Golden Rabbit, and like them even more for being Burgenlandish and thus bringing some life to a nearly dead or slightly embarrassing young scene down there, their electro indie comes close to the short-lived Nu Rave anno 2007 too often to be entirely appealing to my tastes. Roquestar’s remix gives them a more timeless wrapping.
Crack Ignaz - Herc (Lex Lugner Rmx)
Locally (Salzburg) sourced Cloud Rap. Complete with wobbly images, filters and MDMA-references.
Fijuka - Behave (From Now On) (Cpt. Yossarian Remix)
LaBrassBanda (and occasional Fijuka live) drummer Manuel Da Coll alias Toni Mono remixed the band’s Behave (From Now On).
Fijuka @ Waves Vienna: Thursday, 3 October
Bilderbuch - Plansch (Möwe Remix)
Am I getting old? Möwe have 6.000 Facebook fans and up until this day, I’d never heard of them. I know, I know, Facebook fans aren’t a reliable metric. But it seems the Pratersauna / open air techno hedonist crowds are now where the masses, the money and the zeitgeist are.
Much like HVOB (who used to be an indie band called Herbstrock), Möwe (who used to be an indie band called Mary Lost Her Pathos) have found a new musical home in an electronic surrounding. Though their booking agency Titan is much less cool than HVOB’s Four Artists and Primary Talent. However, this remix is pretty solid, and soulful.
Also PLEASE look at this remade Plansch video by two kids and the awesome sisters of one of these kids, a.k.a. Chicago’s biggest Bilderbuch fans.
Mikky Ekko - Kids (Cid Rim Remix)
Mikky Ekko - it’s that one guy that Rihanna featured on one of her latest singles. He happens to be signed to the label that I am working at at the moment, and thus I have been following his soulful pop around not only for private, but also for business-related reasons. Imagine how thrilled I was when I found out that Cid Rim, one of the most renowned local electronic musicians, remixed his latest single “Kids”. It’s such a perfect combination.
Cid Rim (live) @ Waves Vienna: Friday, 4 October
Mieux - Neufant Remixes comin soon! here is what sekuoia did to our pearl track. awesomeness!
Mieux - Pearl (Sekuoia Remix)
Much like Modeselektor + Apparat = Moderat, Minor Sick + Feux = Mieux. After their Neufant EP, they’re about to release remixes, and this one is the first appetizer.
Austra - Home (Space Echo Trip Extended)
Sweet. caTekk’s and Lee Stevens’ new project Space Echo kicks off with an Austra remix. Free download via Soundcloud.
I-Wolf & The Chainreactions - Exploitation Blues (Burnin Tears Remix)
More loungy than the original, this is a free download via the Seayou Soundcloud.
Catastrophe & Cure - Quite Alright (Neorama Remix)
Kings Of Convenience are cool. The Whitest Boy Alive is a little cooler. Do you get the analogy? If so, you know what to do: download the track for free via Soundcloud.
The terror (UMA remix) - The Flaming Lips
This is a very gentle remix that doesn’t add or take away much and ends up being much more paranoia-inducing than the original.
Allen Alexis - Who Cares (A.G. Trio Remix)
This sounds different from other A.G. Trio output but no less interesting.
Lana del Rey - Dark Paradise (Parov Stelar Remix)
Lana del Rey hasn’t been my cup of tea since that terrible Summer Sadness song that sounded like a generic version of every other Lana del Rey song, ever. But my point is not to accuse her of being the Modern Talking of contemporary pop.
My point is to say, look at Parov Stelar, remixing the big stars and getting signed to Universal and shaping up to become even bigger than he already is.

The Unused Word – Heaven (Testa Remix) (MP3)
Much like the recent 4AD signing SOHN, Anna aka The Unused Word is not only working and living in Vienna, but also has her finger on the pulse with her soulful mixture of hip hop and new school electronica. Heaven is taken from her debut EP ∞ (Infinity). The version here is a remix by her labelmate DJ Testa.
