Ou Est... in the Mix.

FInally it's dropped. Ou Est Le Swimming Pool have taken up the challenge of remixing, and have come up trumps. Taking some advice and going for Bolt Action Five's "Think Fast" as their first effort, they've used the original vocals mixed in nicely their own put through a spanking new vocoder, over a mix of the track which stays quite true to the original while still adding in plenty of new elements to make it worth listening to as well as the original. Starting very bleepy, in that electro 8-bit style, that familiar synth line drops in soon with a new twist on it before they completely attack the bridge building nicely before dropping away and rising again into the next chorus over a filthy guitar lick and coming to a fairly spectacular close.

In all honesty, i like. I might even go so far as to say it's my favourite Think Fast mix, and there are a few knocking around.

While we're on the remix topic, picked up a couple of bangers over the last few days which i thought were very much worth while sharing.

Having not found a Daft Punk Remix that was better than the original i've suddenly stumbled across a few in a couple of weeks, this time round it Ghetto Ruckus doing an incredibly dirty version of "Harder Better Faster Stronger" with a very cut up use of the vocal which works incredibly well.

And something newish from the boys Herve and Sinden doing their usual thing, this time to Aquasky.

Oh, and for Tom, in case he's reading.

Hope you like.
