These Tracks are Simply Divine

Ello ol' chaps. Sorry for the late article, but I hope we get two in today regardless.

Today's tracks are courtesy of Todd Edwards. You may know of him for his work in Face to Face if you're a Daftaholic. Both tracks today are remixes of DVNO, and both from Todd Edwards.

Anyway, I am posting this first track because it's an extremely rare remix that our good friend Boba was able to acquire for me. It just may be the rarest gem you'll have in your library if you decide to download this. Also, ilictronix might be the only place on the internet where you can download this.

It starts out with an almost-microhouse-sounding collection of mini vocal samples recording by Todd Edwards himself. Taking these whole notes and arranging them to sound cool, with a lead synth playing over it. This then leads to an offbeat edit of DVNO itself, almost sounding as if Justice had rerecorded the track.

The second track comes from The Sunshine Brothers, a group which Todd Edwards worked in/with to produce this remix. It has a more solid drum structure and is not as vocal-oriented as the original remix I posted. It does sound amazing with the addition of Auto-Tune, and the synth is pretty killer as well.

At about a minute in, the song sounds like it has Parkinson's and gets even better with erratic pausing. All in all, it's a chill-out song and is far more mesmerizing than the first remix posted. Maybe that's why they call themselves the Sunshine Brothers.

Enjoy these rare gems, I'm pretty certain you don't already own them :-P

Second isn't really rare though, you know.

Incidentally, I had the ofrtune of discovering that a record store near the university of washington's main campus in Seattle carried the DVNO remix EP on vinyl. It was pretty much the only decent new vinyl they carried apart from a few indie rock albums, and Crystal Castles. I need to go back there so I can pick up the crystal casltes album... it used ot be on amazon, but they don't carry it now.

and just thought I'd tell you... I found a crapload of quarters in my room today. If I had any way to digitize them and donate them, I would.

The Todd Edwards remix is plain awesome. So unlike the original yet it fits so nicely onto the vocals.

And it reminds me of FtF.

I didn't have this remix! Thank you for posting!

Sorry to comment again, but I just realized something. That echoing female vocal is also from the radio station. If you care, I've edited the MP3 to get rid of that.
