walter meego + van she tech.


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)
walter meego - girls

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.

yeh good to see van she tech is back with its signature style...they really did rip it up a couple of years ago. their remix of 'poison' isn't bad either!

Totally agree with Van She Tech being one of (if not) the best back in the hayday of the blogworld

Thanks a lot.

I totally agree with you about Van She Technologic! Their "Gravity's Rainbow" remix is one my favorite tracks but I don't have it in 320 kbps... I wondered if it would be possible that you post it, if you have it naturally, or even send me a link... Thank you very much, keep going! Love Discodust!!

agree with vst's gravity's rainbow mix being one of the defining songs of the past few years in blogsphere, but this walter meego remix does really sound like they used the exact same bass line from the utah saints mix...

Bah I know I will get hated on but this is actually not one of my fav van she tech remixes. Oh, dont get me wrong, I LOVE van she tech, but this one didnt do it for me for some reason. I do agree about your statement on gravity's rainbow, still one of my favourite tracks.

aleks - the van she remix of Shinichi Osawa's "Maximum Joy" is the one, the Walter Meego one is kind of ehh...but I agree 100%, Van She Tech are the greatest remixers known to man.

Van She Tech remixes remind me of Soulwax remixes, don't you? I L O V E both of them!

Eye Shot said...

their remix of gravity's rainbow was used in a gum commercial in the uk. so it definitely did get some love. Shame most remixes arent as good as they used to be but at 10,000 a pop what do you expect.

i am so fucking disappointed you put up the girls tune. Disgusting lost respect for walter meego

vanshetech realistically kick soulwax back in the day, they changed everything and pretty much started the whole indie remix genre, even more so than most of the "now" bigger acts.

Complete respect. Geniuses

Why would the above poster be disgusted for the girls tune? Friggin dumb ass, it's awesome!!!!

worboys said...

Well hows this for a situation. Van She Tech and Bag Raiders (live set) both clash at Parklife and the end of Van She Tech overlaps the First half of Yuksek!!!!!! 3 of my favourite remixers all competing for my love. I dont know what to do!

machiventa: because he/she's scared of pop music and catchy tunes. common illness around here.
