It’s that time for another crop of remixes that have been making their rounds here at bop2pop. Often times artists and remixers make remixes available to download for free to help promote themselves. Below are bop2pop approved remixes that you can download for your enjoyment.
On this ridiculously hot NYC day, nothing can cool me better than a nice smooth remix (of course, I still want the icy cool AC, and even better, a nice frozen cocktail). Luckily for bop2pop, Canadian artist/remixer Le Matos has worked wonders on the already sublime, Last Days of Summer by Johan Agebjorn and his new muse, The Queen of Hearts who we have written about too many times to count. Genius.
A mix has a myriad of purposes. Sometimes the mix simply extends a song. Sometimes a “hot new” remixer uses it on an established artist to raise his/her profile. Sometimes it’s used strictly for the dance floor. But every once in awhile, something magical happens. The mix completely reinterprets a song, and by doing so, introduces it to a new audiance. This is the case with the RAC remix of Natalie Walker‘s, Cool Kids. It actually makes it “cool”. The original ventures dangerously close to ground already covered by Dido, but the mix increases the tempo and makes it on the playlist for hot summer days, riding in a convertible with the top down, wearing sunglasses and feeling a breeze against your skin.
