Life Warmer Upper

As Life Festival approaches, and Mr.Jones Soundsystem prepares, I've decided to throw together a few songs that we might be hearing on the weekend. These songs are basically all remixed or produced by the artists playing at Life. All worth owning.

Ida Engberg - Disco Volante (Sebastien Leger remix) (Right-click, save as)



Fairmont - Gazebo (Sebastien Leger remix) (Right-click, save as)



Green Velvet - Shake N Pop (Tommy Trash remix) (Right-click, save as)



TC - Wheres My Money (Caspa remix) (Right-click, save as)



SchizofonicS - Break Free (Right-click, save as)

John Butler Trio


I came across this guy on youtube there the other day and was very impressed by not only the skill of the guitar playing, but the quality of the song writing. I've seen a few other guitarists who play in this style like Erik Mongrain, who is also amazing. But John Butler Trio takes the biscuit for this song called Ocean, played live.

Please watch.

I uploaded an mp3 of this performance, because I reckon it's good enough to just have on your ipod or whatever.
