Running… its a great way to get exercise, gather your thoughts and take some time to yourself. As much as you love running, you likely still need some motivation to keep kicking one foot out in front of the other. For me, that motivation is definitely music, but not just any music – it’s hard hitting house and trance. There’s something about the speed and power of the beat helps your mind focus on the music rather than the burning in your legs or the persistent sweat that keeps trickling into your eyes.
I wanted to share some beats that have been keeping my feet moving over the last few months, so if you are looking for some new additions to your running playlist, these tracks will surely help you out!
Wolfgang Gartner – Undertaker (Original Mix)
Boys Noize – Shine Shine (AC Slater Remix)
Deadmau5 feat. Rob Swire – Ghosts N Stuff
Sporting his long hair, thick beard and signature sunglasses, he bears a striking resemblance to a futuristic Jesus. And really, that deserves props.
Beyond the look, he always puts out solid music. Sébastien Tellier has been making sweet, sweet music since the release of his first album in 2001. He is not only talented with multiple instruments, but the guy can rock it out in three languages! Being a Frenchman, there has been some controversy around his use of English in his music, but that has really opened the door to a wider audience worldwide. His latest album Sexuality, released in 2008 was interesting as his label Record Makers collaborated with American Apparel for a 3 month pre-release exclusive to their stores. I remember seeing the album in the stores and hearing it on a few occasions. What makes the album really special is the fact that it was produced by none other than one half of what could be considered France’s most recognizable duo, Daft Punk.
For the pleasure of your ears, I have included a few tracks from his album Sexuality. The first two are some masterful remixes by some of our popular friends! The A-Trak remix is a definite show stopper and I remember Treasure Fingers dropping it on us at one of his shows. The place went absolutely nuts!
Sébastien Tellier – Kilometer (A-Trak Remix)
Sébastien Tellier – Look
And finally, here is the video for the original of L’amour et la violence… its a really beautiful song and I had to be sure that you all got to hear it in its original splendor:
I have been meaning to make a post on theses guys for some time…
My sister introduced me to Cut Copy when she arrived home from a year in Australia. She had them on a mix tape (that’s right, a CASSETTE) and she was super stoked for me to hear their music. We are both a bit nutters when it comes to music and introducing people to something new. These guys are another band that belongs to the explosion of great music from down under and they truly need to be seen live to appreciate their skill. There are certain bands that sound nearly identical to the CD when you hear them live, and Cut Copy is definitely part of that group. I have some extremely fond memories of seeing them live and shaking it all over the place.
Here’s some tracks for your listening pleasure:
Cut Copy – That Was Just a Dream
Cut Copy – Lights & Music (Boys Noize Happy Birthday Remix)
Cut Copy – Zap Zap
