so i just left some of my hard-earned money over at beatport, just to get a proper version of the van she tech remix of 'forever' by walter meego, just to see it posted on ohh! crapp... while checking google reader a while later. oh crap indeed, y'all!
anyway, this gem being good to post made me start some research, leading me to bigstereo and chromewaves who both posted the original 'girls' by walter meego a while ago and as i have only ever paid attention to remixes of their tracks so far, i have to say that these guys are quite good and got some real good and catchy electric light orchestra style songwriting going on.
back to the van she tech remix though. i agree with what ohh! crapp... says, their shinichi osawa remix was quite of a letdown but this one is more than making up for that, so maybe we can just blame the original tune. don't get me wrong, i am not saying any bad things about van she tech, it is just that they have always been nothing but godlike to me. before i started my own blog, you saw me checking fluokids for new remixes of them every day because they were my personal number one producers.
and actually i am still in grief that they never got the attention that justice or simian mobile disco got for their remixes back in the day because seriously, every single van she tech production back then killed it - i'd even go as far as saying that their version of "gravity's rainbow" by klaxons is the best track of 'the old days' and i'd still play it out today.
but enough drunken nostalgia for now, let's pretend we are all glad to move on and make sure to check out both these tracks!
walter meego - forever (van she tech remix)
if you like those, be as cool as i am and buy it on beatport. but as you broke leechers won't do that anyway, at least head over to myspace, add walter meego and van she tech and make them feel loved!
update: enough free leech of 'girls', if you want more from walter meego, head over to amazon, itunes or insound.
