The radio beats on and on and on
This year could be another good year for Baile and remix kings Radioclit. Radioclit were in Copenhagen last month, a show which I sadly missed. Anygays, the 'clit has done a remix of Danish darlings Alphabeat which is more than worth checking out.
I'm actually all for Alphabeat, but their sound sometimes strays a bit too close to a high school band doing covers of Abba (Come to think of it, that sounds pretty good in a way). There's something in the Danish accent and overall delivery of the music which comes of a bit camp, but on the other hand, who am I to argue - I'm writing a blog. I read somewhere that Franz Ferdinand wanted to make music that makes girls dance, well Alphabeat did actually that. Hopefully, Alphabeat will drop their new album this year, the last one was poptastic in the words of popjustice.The Radioclit remix sets the sails for 24 hour latino carnival town and goes bonanza in horns. I'd love to see Brazilian samba girls shake down to this.

Alphabeat - Fantastic 6 (Radioclit Remix)

This next mix is from '05, made to sound like something from the glorious year 1979
ghettopop 24: the Gaytoblaster Megamixx

Also, I'f you for some god awful dumb reason haven't heard Alphabeat, do enjoy this fantastic single from last year- It's more high school than pimples and "I don't care":

Alphabeat - 10,000 Nights of Thunder

Not particularly new, but also worth a listen is Radioclits Divine Gosa single, of which Switch has done remix - So clash it hurts!
