ELECTRO | Edward Sharpe, M.I.A., and Aoki

Posted by on January 14, 2011

NYU students love indie music. At least one track related to the genre is bound to pop up on any given playlist, during the occasional apartment party. I first heard Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroe’s song, “Home,” while out at one of said parties, a few months back. Although I typically shy away from bands such as this, the track proved otherwise. DJ Whole-Z capitalized on “Home’s” popularity by remixing the track into an electro banger. The beginning is slow, much like the original song, but the drop is pretty sick.

2010 didn’t play out so well for M.I.A.. We’re all sick of her remixes (if my girlfriends play a version of “Paper Planes” again, I may keel over). Two weeks after dropping her [decent] mixtape entitled “Vicki Leekz,” M.I.A. has released a new EP with four remixes of her song “Internet Connection.” Two of said remixes, by Flux Pavillion and Huoratron Rum Aid, are posted below and deserve some recognition.

Unfortunately I missed Steve Aoki’s Friday night return to Surrender while out in Vegas. The below remixes of “Wake Up Call” have helped me get over it.
