Track of the Day: Metronomy (Database Remix)
The hard electro remix of Metronomy's "Radio Ladio" by Database is one of the strongest shots of pure adrenaline you can order up online. The bass drops like an army of electric bricks, buzzing dance beats bouncing the floorboards inside your brain as Metronomy asks over and over, "See that girl, she's taking my breath away. Yeah, what's her name? She's takin' my breath away."
Eventually the dude's call is responded to by a buildup of fried industrial clamor, and a computerized chant of "R-A-D-I, R-A-D-I, R-A-D-I...R-A-D-I-O," the answers like Justice with a grimier funk going on.
You can hear the remix of this London act by the Brazilian production duo on the blog Cause = Time, which has a bunch of excellent remixes on deck (Lily Allen's "Never Gonna Happen (Dr. Rosen Remix)" is very sweet-sad.)
