Disco Villains

The other day I was sitting on my bed, and my roommate, who usually plays these electro mixes full of songs I already know (including one with ghosts and stuff), played the remix I posted of We Are your friends. Even just hearing the first aspect of We are your friends made me skeptical. You don't fuck with that song unless you really think you have something good. I was so ready to just dismiss it off the bat, being as pretensious about this kind of stuff as I am. But it really caught my attention and got me interested. Later I found a disco villains remix of Tiga, which is by far the best remix of mind dimension I have heard so far (which is saying a lot as there are so many out there). Thank Matt for introducing me to The Disco Villains.

All That She Wants (Disco Villains Remix) by Ace of Base (fantastic)

Bounce (Disco Villains Remix) by Mstrkrft (Pretty good)

Dirty Harry (Disco Villains Remix) by Gorrilaz

Gravel Pit (Disco Villains Remix) by Wu Tang Clan

Mind Dimension (Disco Villains Remix) by Tiga (Insanely good) (REMOVED)

We Are Your Friends (Disco Villains Remix) by Justice (surprisingly good)

There's more disco villains stuff out there. I'll probably do a more thorough search after Ultra Music Festival this weekend.

    The Disco Villains

  3. Here is the thing about the Web Sherrif, we didn't post Tiga's mind dimension, we posted a remix of Tiga's mind dimension. Disco Villains made it their own song. It's just like taking a bunch of samples from the same song and putting what you think would go well over it too. I mean French House artists take tons of samples from a disco song, and don't even call it a remix. If Disco Villains had decided to name the song differently and not even include Tiga's name (except in the official release under where they got their samples section), then this wouldn't even have come up.
