Fake Blood x Glenjamn

Glenjamn captured Fake Blood’s magic with his Ninja Vid skills. Fake Blood is using 2 CDJ’s and Serato, quite an impressive DJ setup for one man. His little live edit of Tiga’s Mind Dimension is great which segues into his own edit of Soulwax’s version of Daft Punk’s Teachers. He cuts up the syllables in Teachers to “say” Fake Blood like he does in all his remixes/edits. So great. I can’t wait to hear more of Fake Blood in 2009, I can’t believe I just got into him these past few weeks. Better now then never.

Wham! – Last Christmas (Lifelike Snowopolis Remix)


UPDATE:
So this is obviously a fake but was a nice try by whomever put it on the interwebs. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Lifelike gets into the holiday spirit with this remix of Wham!’s “Last Christmas”. Lifelike should have remixed Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmas Time”, my favorite Xmas song, I love the intro synth part.

The Death of Cornelius

Bob Rifo proves to everyone that he is a musical genius with this tune. He channels Vangelis, Giorgio Moroder, Tangerine Dream, Ennio Morricone, along with his raw punk rock emotion and crafts an overture that pays tribute to the mysterious CORNELIUS.
