Since we enjoy the occasional remix here at GypsySphere, I figured we would make Wednesdays our day for remixes. Today’s first remix includes Pretty Lights, or solo electronic musician Derek Vincent Smith. Pretty Lights came on the scene in early 2009 and keeps getting bigger. One aspect that sets him apart from the normal DJ is his use of vintage funk and soul samples, giving him that old school feel but still the heavy synths. Check out his take on Pink Floyd’s “Time” below

Not a huge fan of La Roux, and defintely not even a small fan of Kanye, but I thought this was “interesting”…to say the least. Stream the track here.

So when I saw Four Tet remixed an XX song (via Four Tet’s Twitter) I was excited, and seeing it was of “VCR” needless to say, I was a bit ecstatic . But 4 minutes in, I found myself disappointed. Maybe I have high expectations when hearing of a new XX mix, but with Four Tet’s recent success, I couldn’t see this as being anything less than awesome. Maybe I’m naive? You be the judge
