“Two” (Buffetlibre Remix) – The Antlers
As stated recently, I don’t usually like remixes that much. I prefer the original stuff. Most remixes strike me as artists who lack creativity piggybacking/jacking somebody else’s creative juices and calling it their own. That said, however, once in a while a remix comes along that makes me drool. Maybe I’m drooling right now because I have strep throat and cannot seem to make use of my throat because it’s in so much pain, but I’d like to instead think that I’m drooling because I am loving this remix so much. It’s a perfect blend of the original and a new dance funk mix. Not overdone, not underdone. Just right. In fact I believe I like it more than the original. Thank you sir, I’ll have another.
And the other part of this that I love! So the dudes who did this remix, Buffetlibre, have teamed up with Amnesty International Catalunya to create something called “PEACE,” “the first music atlas in the net.” Basically this is a compilation of over 180 exclusive and unreleased songs by artists from all over the world. You can download the album here after making a donation to Amnesty International Catalunya. The money then goes to the investigation and action campaigns aimed at preventing cases of Human Rights abuses around the world. Being a human rights major in college, obviously this concept appeals to me.
