A New Breed Of New Wave - A Mix Of Alternative Dance Rock and Breakbeats

No words can describe how ecstatic I am still feeling right now with all the very cool and encouraging (even sometimes flattering) comments that all of you guys have given me; from my "virtual" blogger friends and buddies to fellow DJs and to more new friends popping up into the comments and chatbox sections giving me a shout-out of some sort. Thank you to everyone once again and I promise you the best in music mixes, remixes and mash-ups and even suprises once in a while. :)

For today's upload, I'm thinking of pumping up some breakbeats once more, for a change that is, since I remember my last Breaks upload was still back in June of last year (check out "Bring The Noise - Some Crunchy Breakbeats" for some flashback) and another one in in July of the same year (check out "A Joyful Rebellion - When Rock and Dance Music Collide"). So for all you Breakbeat fans out there, lucky you.

This time, however, it would be more inclined to the dance rock/alternative edge rather than pure Breaks. In reference to the title of my post, I've mixed songs from some of the most promising underground and even mainstream alternative bands of today, whose music reminded me of old school 80s New Wave, from Peter Bjorn and John, Coldplay, The Fray, Interpol, She Wants Revenge, Moving Units, The Kills, Death Cab for Cutie and more. Have also some stuff from Fatboy Slim, The Wiseguys, and DJ Shadow bringing in those funky breaks.

Now if you want something uniquely noisy, but funky and danceable at the same time (slam dance that is), you might enjoy today's mix set.

1. Idioteque - Radiohead (The Beatmeister's Remix)
2. Clocks - Coldplay
3. The Young Folks - Peter Bjorn and John
4. The Good Ones - The Kills

Have a listen to this mix and prepare your own mosh pit to jump into!
