HOW GOOD IS THIS!!!??? – NUMBER 34

THE REMIXES – PART 6 – THE SHOES

So busy are this French double act that we weren’t sure if it was actually possible to complete a comprehensive catalogue of their remixes! There’s millions out there! OK, so perhaps not quite that many, but this is the biggest Remix Special that we’ve ever done, following our previous editions covering The Golden Filter, The Twelves, Bloc Party, DiscoTech and Soulwax.

We think The Shoes are head and shoulders above most when it comes to blending up other people’s tunes. They add a distinctive, but always brilliant, pounding four beat. The kind of beat that dance music was born for. The kind of beat that moves your legs for you. They add their perfect pace, together with a few chopped up synths, but like all the best remixers they respectfully maintain a lot of the orignal track and vocals.

JUST A BAND – WE ARE (THE SHOES REMIX) ysi
MARINA & THE DIAMONDS – I AM NOT A ROBOT (THE SHOES REMIX) ysi
ESSER – WORK IT OUT (THE SHOES REMIX) ysi
33Hz – I FEEL ALIVE (THE SHOES REMIX) ysi
THE GOLDEN SILVERS – ARROWS OF EROS (THE SHOES REMIX) ysi
TELEPATHE – CHROMES ON IT (THE SHOES REMIX) ysi
PRIMARY 1 – HOLD ME DOWN (THE SHOES REMIX) ysi
CANDY CLASH – JUST HER KISS (THE SHOES REMIX) ysi
THE VIRGINS – TEEN LOVERS (THE SHOES REMIX) ysi
THE CHEEK – SLOW KIDS (THE SHOES REMIX) ysi
LATE OF THE PIER – FOCKER (THE SHOES REMIX) ysi
LADYHAWKE – DUSK TILL DAWN (THE SHOES REMIX) ysi
MYSTERY JETS – YOUNG LOVE (THE SHOES REMIX) ysi
GET CAPE WEAR CAPE FLY – WAITING FOR THE MONSTER TO DROWN (THE SHOES REMIX) ysi


OK, as always please dutifully comment about those remixes we missed. We know there’s a couple of remixes floating out there they’ve done for Wiley, Hadouken and something they did with Those Kids, but we have to sleep sometimes.

    I saw The Shoes last year at Loop and I really liked them. They smoked on stage despite being asked to put them out countless times, providing a very french V’s up in retort.

    I thought their sound was very 80s Brooklyn beat done really well, it’s not jump-up but it’s clearly all about the party vibe and those boys definitely kick it with style.

    thanks for the awesome set of remixes again! Good choice on The Shoes.

    I always loved primary 1 remix, I can’t ever get enough of that one. Esser, and Marina & the Diamonds one, also top notch.

    Keep up with the good work, one of the few blogs that actually puts up good quality, not quantity.
