Big Bills

To no surprise, Mad Decent‘s Dj Blaqstarr did wonders remaking Flosstradamus‘ first origional production and recent hit with Chairlift‘s, Caroline Polachek’s, Big Bills.

My life is on repeat…

…But thankfully so are these new jams. Pump it! The Dream‘s, Walking on the Moon, is reportedly inspired by the former (sadly) king of pop, Michael Jackson.

Groove Armada – Drop the Tough (Twelves b-live Club Rmx)
The Glamour – Loveburn
The Dream – Walking on the Moon ft. Kanye West
Ace of Base – All That She Wants (The Disco Villains Rmx)
Flosstradamus – Big Bills ft. Caroline Polachek

Here’s the vid for the Flosstradamus track – Kind of flighty if you ask me. Caroline, the lead singer of Brooklyn’s Chairlift, reminds me a little of Feist. In fact the vid kind of takes a low-budget Feist approach. (Note: that is a compliment to Feist but an insult to Floss’s vid)
