REMIX: Twin Sister - All Around and Away We Go

Here's my first remix ever under the Heavy Accents name. I've been trying to find the right production tools to work with (and the right sound; I'm still experimenting but you have to start somewhere right?), but all I know is that I fell in love with the original Twin Sister track the first time I heard it.

I grabbed the "All Around and Away We Go" stems instantly once I realized that the band was freely distributing them. I sat down the vocal stem one night, and so began this remix that I couldn't put down for the next few days. You can stream my remix below via my SoundCloud or download and stream here: MediaFire + YouTube

MIXTAPE: Arizona

I wanted to let this mixtape speak for itself. Not necessarily an homage (and neither does the music reflect anything related) to the state, Arizona is mostly about good indie/electronic/dance beats catching my ear at the moment.

I do have a point behind the title that I don't want to push too hard, so I'll keep that a mystery for now. In the meantime, check out Flight Facilities (a new act from Australia - thanks Jon), a cut from the new Holy Ghost! EP, Nacho Lovers (their new single is summertime epicness!), Tracey Thorn (ex-Everything But The Girl) and VEGA (aka Neon Indian) all blended together for you on Arizona:

1. The Dominatrix - The Dominatrix Sleeps Tonight
2. Sugardaddy - Love Honey (Greg Wilson Edit)
3. Siriusmo - Femuscle
4. Crookers - Hold Up Your Hand Ft. Roisin Murphy
5. Flight Facilities - Crave You Ft. Giselle
6. Tensnake - Coma Cat
7. Holy Ghost! - I Know I Hear
8. Tanlines - Real Life
9. Nacho Lovers - Deeper
10. Kerrier District - Disclix
11. Golden Bug - The Game
12. Tracey Thorn - Why Does the Wind (Ewan Pearson Radio Edit)
13. Polargeist - Use Me
14. Malente & Dex - Habibi (Shir Khan Remix)
15. Science & Industry - This Is How It's Meant To Be
16. Radioclit - Secousse (Brodinski Remix)
17. High Powered Boys - Highway
18. VEGA - No Reasons
