NSA’s Academy of Remix: Jesse Boykins III & MeLo-X – The Perfect Blues (Machinedrum Remix)

Jesse Boykins III & MeLo-X

Jesse Boykins III & MeLo-X



Some remixes deserve a special recognition. And this stuttering rendition of Jesse Boykins III and MeLo-X’s new single The Perfect Blues, by Machinedrum, an American jungle revivalist, is one of those treats. The opening cavalcade of beats makes way for the breathless chase between the graceful, sensual vocal lines, delivered by Jesse and Machinedrum’s artillery of nervous beats shooting in every direction.

The remix will be featured on Jesse Boykins III & MeLo-X’s new single I’m new here out on 10th of December via Ninja Tune.

Sunday Afternoon Sessions: Violetta Villas – Strangers in the night

A cheeky and sexy version of Frank Sinatra’s evergreen by the late and much missed ikon of Polish popular music, Violetta Villas. She did, in fact, share the stage with Sinatra in Las Vegas once upon a time.

Arrivals: Dumbo Gets Mad – Radical Leap/Bam Bam (Free downloads)

Dumbo Gets Mad is Disney inspired vintage pop act from Italy. They’re about to release their sophomore album in the early 2013, which is heralded by two awesome free tracks. Kaleidoscopic, colourful, warm and hairy, Radical Leap, is all you ever wanted from a psychedelic song. Fuzzy guitars clash with vintage synths to pour over gorgeous melody. The cozmic Bam Bam is just as good and sweet.

As if it wasn’t enough, this feisty elephant is also giving its debut album for a price of the Tweet [follow the White Rabbit], “for free” that is. Free music = free love. Dumbo Gets Mad are the true embodiment of the hippie philosophy.
