Brandon Flowers - Crossfire (DVWs Bullethole Remix)


Working on another hot tip this morning, my buddy Dominik Von Werdt, or as he likes to shorten that ish down to DVW (yes, we approve of lessened keystrokes), bursts back in to Beastonia with an edit of The Killers' frontman, Brandon Flowers' single, Crossfire. Now, if you know me, then you're well aware of my initial misgivings and meh-ttitude when it comes to the bloke's body of new work. Thankfully, we got our pal D to the V-Dubs working his magic and making us smile.




Let's erase all memories of the original tune from Senor Flowers...


...and simply soak up the awesomesauce that DVW has provided with us this morning.


Full of win.

Rihanna - Rude Boy (DVW Remix)

Let it be known that I really super honestly enjoy Rihanna's Rude Boy. I think it's a great pop song, and the lyrics, well, whew...we sweat a little more with each repeated listen.


With that said, anytime I really dig a more mainstreamed pop tune, on I go, searching for a remix or general fix to supplement what's deemed commercial. No, I don't intend to replace my love for the original, but rather than annoy my beastly self by repeated listenings of the same track over and over, I like to freshen it up with a fine rework.

Ok, that was a lot of back story. Let's just scroll and stroll through DVW's remix of Rude Boy...which falls somewhere between a Baltimore juke mix and a strict vocal edit.

We love it.

Beastly Bits #5

Rise and shine, you little radlets! It's time to get the day started with a dose of yummy treats.


Before we begin, I'm making a plea to urge you all to donate a few bills to the Haitian relief effort. The country was rocked by a massive earthquake yesterday, and any bit helps the cause to continue in support of international response. Information on how to donate is here.

And now, breakfast is served.
