Haggstrom - Be My Baby (Diamond Cut Dub)
Funky synthesizers meet dreamwave; Be sure to look at everything
Diamond Cut has ever done. Oh, and I’ve really got to start posting more… I’ve been spending far too long with my face shoved in a book. Also, (for those who like photography) I’ve found a ton of fantastic images from the Twisted Sifter

Delphic - Doubt (Audionite Remix)
I don’t usually like songs this hard, but I made an exception. 1’37″ is the point I love the most, second only to the wobbly vocal effects and the computer voice in the background.

Daft Punk - Superheroes (We Plants Are Happy Plants Remix)
In anticipation of the new Daft Punk album, I’ve decided to share some remixes of their old stuff. You know an artist is good when people are remixing them 12 years later. This song samples Barry Manilow – the vocal is “something’s in the air.” The more you know, right?

Dilemn - Clapping (Extended Mix)
Tired of thrashing electro junk?
Bored with pop house?
Dilemn delivers the best of both worlds by producing a track that’s got a dark edge without being angry noise – and upbeat without sounding cliché.
Cicada - Falling Rockets (Just A Band Remix)
Again and again and again and again and again!

Starts at 1’32″ – you know I got the fever of loving you too much.
Dimitri From Paris - Just About Right (Downsized Edit)
We all need more disco in our lives. At 56 seconds, it gets funky.

Todd Terje - Inspector Norse
After 1’00″, it gets smooth… very rare for a 120bpm track to be so dance-friendly. Todd Terje has made a lot of long, drawn-out edits, so I was surprised to see something so upbeat and disco-ish instead of deep and slow. Definitely grab this one.

Dynamic Rockers - Life (Muttonheads Remix)
As always, Muttonheads is the missing link between dreamwave instruments and disco house dance-ability.

If you’re a fan of Lifelike or dreamwave, but want something more upbeat, this is for you.
Divide & Kreate - Dance Dreams
Though I’m not usually a fan of mashups, Divid & Kreate have done an excellent job of marrying Lady Gaga and the Eurythmics with this track. Suitable for both an 80s-loving and modern pop-loving crowds, Divide & Kreate gives DJs a powerful tool to get crowds dancing.

Modjo - Music Takes You Back
Music takes you back… where you belong!
Teenage Bad Girl - Keep Up With You (Lifelike Remix)
One of my favorite remixes… I’m working on a mashup that uses this song!

Ladyhawke - Paris Is Burning (Matthew Dekay Mix)
A lesser known remix with a dark edge that goes on for 9 minutes!
6’08″ onward is quite nice.
