Remix Fridays: Chromeo, Passion Pit, Wiz Khalifa, Empire of the Sun, Death from Above 1979

Remix Fridays 6Halloween 2009 has finally arrived. Hopefully by now you have some idea of what your costume is, whether it’s balloon boy, Billy Mays, Patrick Swayze, Kanye with a Hennessy bottle, the Geico money stack with eyes, or zombie Michael Jackson (alright, maybe that’s a little too soon). Or maybe pop culture costumes aren’t for you? Then the classics are always a safe bet. If you’re a guy, it’s usually a pirate/vampire/zombie/mummy/beer keg/sports star/superhero. If you’re a girl it’s usually a sexy _, where the blank is any occupation ever.

Regardless of your costume, there’s bound to be a plethora of Halloween parties this weekend. Where there are parties, there is music. Here are some good remixes from Chromeo, Passion Pit, Wiz Khalifa, Empire of the Sun, & Death from Above 1979 that will be great for this weekend. Enjoy.

Gregg 'Girl Talk' Gillis Live at Yale's Spring Fling Festival

Gregg Gillis Girl TalkGregg Gillis, aka Girl Talk, has been known to frequently perform on college campuses and take over the college music scene. In fact, he got his start performing shows on the weekends while still a student at Case Western Reserve University. He eventually went on to graduate, and get a job as an engineer before quitting in 2007 to concentrate on music full time.

Just last month, he was one of three big artists who performed at Yale’s annual Spring Fling festival (the other two being N.E.R.D. and Wale). As expected, Girl Talk got the crowd bumping (and sweating) with his unique dance remixes and eclectic persona. Thanks to the guys over at freeculturemusic, the live recordings of Girl Talk at Yale have now been released for your listening pleasure. He performs a bunch of his classic hits the way you’re used to hearing them, as well as other tracks with subtle variations that only happen during his live sets. Enjoy.

Mixtape Mondays: Kid CuDi and the Day 'N' Nite Remixes

What’s up everyone. We’re going to keep it short and sweet for today’s mixtape. Kid CuDi’s stuff seems to be getting played on every radio station across the country right now. So, I figured that it would be appropriate to post up a few remixes of his biggest hit, “Day ‘N’ Nite.” On this particular mixtape, there are 17 different versions of the song produced by people like Pitbull, Jim Jones, Trey Songz, Terry Urban, and of course Crookers.

Watch Jim Jones’ version below:
