For Japanese listeners, Random Access Memories closes not with “Contact,” but instead with a somber, searching, exclusive bonus track called “Horizon.” It’s a tranquil alternate ending to the storyline Daft Punk created on the album, and serves as one of the most relaxing and dreamy pieces of music ever composed by the French duo. Listen below.
As alluded to in the “Fall” remix post, here’s your second serving of Ta-ku for the night in the form of “I Love Beyoncé.” The rework combines pieces of Drake’s “Girls Love Beyoncé,” the original “Say My Name” from Destiny’s Child and the Perth producer’s own futuristic R&B stylings, and will appear on Ta-ku’s upcoming RE-TWERK Vol.2, coming soon. You can never have enough Beyoncé, right?

Dream Koala is back with some new koala-wave, remixing an unlikely artist in Angel Haze. He converts her previously fast-paced rap song into a stretched out, ambient pool of late night sex, using select “Werkin’ Girls” lyrics to slowly drown you into hypnosis. Outstanding stuff as always.
If you clicked through hoping to get a ridiculously dreamy chillwave flip of Snoop Dogg and Pharrell’s “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” you’re in luck, Oliver Tank‘s “Drop It Like It’s Beautiful” is exactly that. While a lot of the original components remain (the tongue clap, the bulk of the bass drum-heavy beat, and almost all the lyrics), the entire tone has been reversed to something much more…Australian.

Surprising but extremely welcomed, DOOM (fka MF DOOM) and Clams Casino have collaborated on a new track, “Bookfiend.” The characteristically hazy tune is part of a DOOM project said to be out sometime soon on Lex Records. Hear it below.

I was recently (and rather randomly) introduced to ODESZA (the Washington based duo of Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight) through a remix of Beat Connection’s “Soala” that ended up in the latest edition of Free Music You Should Download Right Now. To say I had stumbled onto a goldmine would be the understatement of the year.
