It’s time for some feel-good electro sweetness in the form of another remix extraordinaire that goes by This Guy I Know (TGIK). The first time he caught my attention was from his blast from the past remix of The Killers‘ “Smile Like You Mean It.” I don’t know about you guys, but I spent countless hours on their album Hot Fuss when I was a kid…to the point that it makes me sick to hear a song off of it now. TGIK brought this song back to life in a way I thought to be impossible. Brandon Flowers’ voice on top of powerfully harmonic synths and a simple drum beat that you can’t help but bob your head to. It even maintains the original emotions like it’s the first time you heard it. He has this power with almost every song he touches, and he even mashes up some really sick stuff. I’m really looking forward to hearing more from this guy. He’s got all of his remixes and mashups and sets for listening and downloading pleasure on his soundcloud, but I went ahead and put up some of my favorites.
