SummersRadio™ New Music! Jason Lytle & Aaron Espinoza - 'Smooth Action Pass'

Grandaddy's Jason Lytle and Aaron Espinoza (of Earlimart) have released a new soundtrack to the film 'This Is Your Day'! 'This Is Your Day' is a film directed by Myles Smythe about long distance running - the experience of conquering a 100 mile race called 'The Western States Endurance Run'.

And in other Grandaddy news Jason Lytle mentioned on Twitter yesterday that he's currently working on a new Grandaddy album - their first since disbanding after the release of 'Just Like The Fambly Cat' in 2006!

                   

The soundtrack to 'This Is Your Day' features eleven tracks - mostly instrumental - although a couple songs feature samples - and one called 'On And On (Drumset Version)' that features vocals by Jason Lytle. The full soundtrack is available now on Bandcamp for just seven dollars: https://jasonlytle.bandcamp.com/album/this-is-your-day-original-soundtrack

This is 'Smooth Action Pass' - I like the soothing keyboards on this one... Enjoy!

SummersRadio™ New Video! New Order!

SummersRadio™ New Video! New Order - 'Restless' (Official Video)

New Order have posted a new video online - and it's not just a preview! 'Restless' is the name of the first official single and video from their forthcoming new album 'Music Complete' (their tenth) which will be released September 25th on Mute.

You can pre-order 'Music Complete' on download, cd, double vinyl (limited clear or regular black) or on an eight piece limited vinyl box set from the band's official website here: http://po.st/NewOrderWebsite and you'll get a download of 'Restless' now. 'Restless' is also available as a single on iTunes.

                   

New Order have influenced countless other bands over the years, but only New Order truly sound like New Order. 'Restless' nails their classic more guitar oriented sound - which is great - although I suspect that I'll like the two Chemical Brothers produced tracks even more... Enjoy!

SummersRadio™ Classic Remixes! Faithless!

SummersRadio™ Classic Remixes! Faithless - 'Salva Mea (Save Me)' (Tuff Mix)/ 'If Loving You Is Wrong' (Inflammable Mix)

Faithless have just released a new remixed single - 'Insomnia 2.0' - and it's loathed by all! 2015 marks the 20th Anniversary of their breakthrough monster club hit 'Insomnia' from their debut album 'Reverence',  and to celebrate Faithless have released the new 'Avicii Remix' of the tune (available now on iTunes) which will be featured on their upcoming remix album 'Faithless 2.0' in September.

                   

You can check out some of the scathing feedback on the 'Avicii Remix' on Faithless' Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/Faithless?fref=ts and if you dare you can check out the 'Avicii Remix' itself on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hh0e_lotkY4

The 'Avicii Remix' is not included in this post because, well - nothing about it suggests that it will ever be a classic remix! Everyone seems to be hating it because they're not Avicii fans - with very few comments about specifics of the remix itself. SummersRadio™ has never featured Avicii in a post, so I reckon we're not fans either. However, the worst thing about this remix is the fact that it's a 'radio edit' - it literally chops the 8:47 original down to just three minutes - 3:04 to be precise. That is just trying to condense too much awesome into too little time and it just ends all too quickly, making everyone hate it in the process. You just feel kind of ripped off after listening to it.

The full tracklisting for the remix album 'Faithless 2.0' is yet to be revealed, but I suspect/ hope that there may be a much longer, or proper, full 'Avicii Remix' forthcoming with some better paced eight or ten minute version that is more bearable. Or perhaps there's also a full 'Insomnia 2.0' remix EP forthcoming... or perhaps not, we'll see.

The remix itself is really not that different - Avicii pitches Maxi Jazz's voice down (thankfully - pitching up vocals for remixes is just wrong!) in this version which makes it even more distinct. Beyond that, there's nothing radical going on here - Faithless just should have chose someone more respected/ experienced to remix the track - rather than just whoever is currently the most popular. I've loved Faithless for two decades - and 'Radio Edit' aside, this new remix just isn't worthy!

So enough about 'Insomnia 2.0' (Avicii Remix) (Radio Edit)! While the original 'Insomnia' is indeed a classic, it was Faithless' previous single - 'Salva Mea (Save Me)' - that first blew me away and turned me into a superfan (specifically the 'Tuff Mix') several months before 'Insomnia' was released. ('Salva Mea' was first released in July 1995, followed by 'Insomnia' in November '95 - and both were re-released in '96/ '97). It made the top 10 in the U.K., and it was the band's first number one hit on the Billboard Dance Club charts.

What made 'Salva Mea (Save Me)' - the 'Tuff Mix' so epic was the dramatic operatic intro, the debut of Maxi Jazz's ominous voice, and of course the keyboard hooks... Enjoy!



'If Loving You Is Wrong' was released as the fourth single from 'Reverence' in 1996 - this is the 'Inflammable Mix' - another classic early Faithless remix... Enjoy!
