That's pretty much what I was thinking when I heard the remix of Teenager's "Alone Again" by VAN SHE. They have a great way of cutting up the sample and fueling it with 80’s post punk, funk and synth pop. I began mixing that track with a Louis La Roche song before I realized that all I wanted to do was play VAN SHE remixes. So I blended a bunch of them together.
The great thing about VAN SHE is that they are, first and foremost, an Aussie band...not a 'remix band'. Their debut album, "V", comes out in August on Modular Records. On this album they worked with producer Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Ladytron, Kasabian).
What I've been most impressed with is the remixes they've done. Their 'sound' blends well together so I tried to make a VAN SHE 'remix-mega-mix' without screwing around too much. So, take the next 48-minutes and enjoy. 1) Teenager - Alone Again (Van She Tech Remix)2) Ladyhawke - Back Of The Van (Van She Tech Turbo Fire Engine Mix)3) Dragonette - I Get Around (Van She Vocal Mix)4) New Young Pony Club - Ice Cream (Van She Tech Remix)5) Martine Topley-Bird - Poison (Van She Mix)6) I Am Finn - I Love You (Van She Tech Remix)7) Feist - 1234 (Van She Remix)8) The Bravery - Time Won't Let Me Go (Van She Tech Remix)9) Klaxons - Gravity's Rainbow (Van She Remix)10) Van She - Cat and the Eye (Van She Tech Remix)
