a toast to delicious jamz

I thought I’d continue the trend over here at JnJ, as we continue to dream of cali, with this sick remix by Minnesota, aka Christian Bauhofer. This “unassuming dude,” as he calls himself, has opened for a whole slew of crazy acts — from Flying Lotus to Ghostland Observatory, Rusko to Benny Benassi, RJD2 to Excision — and is featured in the sets of just as notable of DJs.  Perhaps you’ve heard of Lorin Ashton, aka Bassnectar?  Caught him sampling this remix at Gov’s Island just this past Saturday night.

You immediately get my attention with any remix graced by the presence of The XX.  Nine times out of ten I’m treated with some glorious, oozing tune to wrap up in.  Nine and a half times out of ten.  Probably more.  Anyway Minnesota’s mixup of Sander van Doorn’s “Intro” remix is no exxception.

Mr. Little Jeans is a wacky Norwegian chick who’s yet to produce a full album but has already gained some serious popularity thanks to being snapped up by a few notable remixers, like the RAC, who rehashed “Angels” and “Rescue Song”, the latter of which you’ll find below.  First though, her spooky, hypnotizing cover of the Arcade Fire’s Suburbs.  And enjoy the even spookier music vid she made for it :

Thankfully we have the perky, upbeat wizards of the RAC to bring you out of the weird mood that video probably just put you in.
