It’s that most wonderful time of the year! Hopefully these will transport you to somewhere where the traffic isn’t. Yes, as the beat seizes your core, you realize you can, yes you can–. 

All after the jump:

1. Weird Tapes – Night Stalking  (Via Voules Random)

Like a cross between Twin Peaks (Angelo Badalamenti) and the synthesizer in The Terminator. Transfixing. 

2. Passion Pit – Sleepyhead (Wallpaper. Dio Remix)

This is the remix contest winner of a track that was unconventional to begin with, made even more unconventional, and setting forth the magical machinations in the musicbox.

3. Tommy Sparks – I’m a Rope (Yuksek mix)

Superb, catchy song lyrics and flawless production seize the moment.

4. Sis – Nesrib

Soulful, hypnotic house/tech that sounds like Steve Reich was on controls.

5. Matt & Kim – Good Ol’ Fashion Nightmare

This song just makes me happy, and he’s singing about a nightmare! Matt & Kim are sorta love it/hate it.

6. Digitalism – Taken Away (Lalory’s Modern Romance Mix)  (Via Ohh!! Crapp..)

There have been at least 20 remixes of this song that blogs have been praising. Well let me tell you this is the definitive remix that sits at the top. I wouldn’t lie.

7. Mgmt – Time to Pretend (Blogula mix)   (Via Get Weird Turn Pro)

This popular (and deserving it!) song finally gets a worthy remix that will fit in your DJ set.

8. My!Gay!Husband! – Muppets Theme, Sigur Ros remix

Hilarious name. Fun DJ edits for any party. Both are after the jump.

9. DJ Mehdi – Pocket Piano (Brodinski remix)

Truly dazzling hypnosis on this house/tech groover with some awesome piano, which is so ‘in’ right now.

10. Drop The Lime – I Love NY (Baobinga Remix)  (Via Voules Random)

Hyper-kinetic hard-dance slows down for some slammin’ rap. It’s like woah!!

11. Lykke Li vs. Kings of Leon – Knocked up mashup 

Moody mash-up that fuses two great talents and makes a good intro/atmosphere piece.

12. Sebastian Tellier – Kilometer (Donovan remix)

Throw your hands up to this sexy electro-soul jam. And sway.

13. Rustie – Zig Zag

Dubstep is going in every direction now, and this has a very electro vibe.

14. Curses! – The Deep End

The Italo-disco track of the winter.

15. Fortune – Mission (M83 mix)

Forget it, I’ve finally run out of adjectives. Rock vocals + M83 electronics = Quality. Bon soir.
