REMIXES AND FUN TIMES
Add a sandwich and you'll have the trifecta.
As you can imagine, we at Party Ben Information Systems always strive to keep our image up-to-date, in order to maximize brand identification. With that goal in mind, we continue our attempt to offer "awesome mega electro party remixes of hipster jams" as a balance to our usual "half-assed novelty mashups of crap you've already heard too much." Winning!

Hello
Martin Solveig & Dragonette - Hello (Party Ben's Space Junky House Nation Remix)

There are a couple fine mixes of "Hello" out there (and with the Beatport contest, there will likely be many more) but this is my attempt, something that sort of adds the 4/4 stomp of Wolfgang Gartner's "Space Junk" to a goofy Dutch synth line while holding onto most of the vocal structure, and not just making a complete crazy mess of things. And something I could play on House Nation. That was the goal at least.


Limousines
The Limousines - Internet Killed the Video Star (Party Ben's Bouncy Remix)

Again, two or three totally fine remixes of this floating around, but they either go straight-up electro-disco or smash it into techno smithereens. I thought that, first of all, there needed to be one that was in a major chord the whole way through, and second, gave it a bouncy shuffly like Fake Blood's mixes of Miike Snow and The Kills.

Alrighty then. Interested in more Party Ben? Well here's a handy grid for the next couple months.
