If you have been a follower of my Wednesday Weather Reports, you will have noticed they have not actually been posted on Wednesdays more and more often, this is of course not with out a lack of trying. I may have dug myself into a proverbial hole when tagging this experiment with a timeframe unto which it would be completed every week. As much as I wish I had the ability to have this be consistent each and every Wednesday it has proven to be quite difficult, thus instead of eliminating this project, which I would never do, I am broadening the post date to a weekly weather report! Still your WWR but with an added air of mystery…ya never know when it will hit so you better stay dialed in to our social media accounts such as our Facebook and Twitter accounts to keep up!
So I know it has been a while, I hope everyone is doing well. I woke up to snow on the ground today, and if you dont ride like the rest of us you were probably miserable. I absolutely adore the winter wonderland that Vermont becomes. Snowboarding and skiing is a huge culture/community here and its mountains like Stowe, Sugarbush, Jay Peak, Killington and others that have greatly contributed to drawing the unique inhabitants of the green mountain state to call this place home. Well now you know that its cold and that I can’t wait to hit the chowder, off to some tunes, and remember, ass gass or grass noone rides for free, cheers!
So there have been quite a few remixes of “Set Fire To The Rain” and this one by far is my favorite. I know I dont often post straight up reggae but this is just such a pleasant tune that I have to share it with you all. So let it burn!
Along the same lines as reggae we have the dancehall titan known as Major Lazer taking an EDM classic and, well updating it a little bit. There have been a few remixes off Prodigy’s milestone album “The Fat of The Land” but in my opinion this takes the cake, blowing Noisia’s remix out of the water and just flattening the disappointing production that Zeds Dead had procured. Enjoy.
With haunting lyrics and goosebump triggering guitar chords, Citizen Cope’s “Lifeline” is by itself an absolutely amazing song, but drumstep legend Figure had to have a go at it. To say the least I am absolutely thrilled. Adding big thick bass lines and a well placed tempo jump at the second breakdown this song gets a heavy upgrade making it danceable at the clubs and something for the drive home from work as well.
I am very familiar with Bro Safari, not so much with UFO! which is irrelevant because this tune titled “2012” is just as good as earlier productions by Bro Safari and this one wins my approval. If you know who Bro Safari is this tracks follows suit with his earlier releases this year and aims to satisfy.
Just because I cannot for the life of me escape this song, and I kind of don’t want to, because I think its absolutely fantastic.
