Exclusive DJ Mix: K Avalon Gets Wild
John Talabot "Matilda's Dream"
[I'm a] huge fan of Moombahton, the spanking-new genre born from slowed-down and sexified Dutch house. Especially when they get all spacey with shakers or maracas sprinkled in.
Los Destellos "Elsa (Sonido Martines Remix) [feat. Fefe]"
Originally made in the 60's, this track seems to perfectly sum up my 2010 summer. But only because I haven't spent it all in this foggy town.
Teengirl Fantasy "Azz Klapz"
I love the hyper-sampled, hodgepodge-of-a-grooveline here. Hadn't heard about these guys before I was totally impressed by their set at Popscene a couple months ago. Definitely catch em when they come back through SF!
Debonair Samir "Samir's Theme (Edit)"
I can't help personifying this track as the vuvuzela's younger, hotter, party-animal cousin from Baltimore.
Demarco "She Can't Wait"
Totally infectious, auto-tuned-to-perfection vocals and constantly climaxing chord progressions. This track makes all the girls dance -- and ladies dancing = packed dancefloor.
Feist vs. Boys Noize "My o My man (Toy Selectah Raverton Refix)"
Not often do you come across a fabulous bootleg of a remix of a nearly-perfect-on-its-own pop song. Leave it to the tropical remix king himself, Toy Selectah, to deliver.
Sleigh Bells "Rachel (K Avalon Tropical Remix)"
I think Derek Miller has got some of best guitar riffs and licks in popular music since Jack White went crazy. I just couldn't help dance-ifying the only track without a kickdrum.
