Hail to the Social

After browsing thru past posts in my blog, I began to notice something... that is I spend a lot of my time posting tracks that I receive from new bands and artists thru my inbox. And believe you me, I'm grateful for that and hope that that provides them positive exposure... but I sometimes feel that I can stray away from why I started this blog in the first place: to spread some of my favorite songs out for the world to hear.

Hell, there are even some tracks that I receive that become some of my all-time favorites. But there's just so much material out there, that you can't possibly limit yourself or your blog to just the inbox. Sometimes you have to go out an post other discoveries, whether they're new or old, and just enjoy the music for what it is.

Which brings me to Hail Social an indie/electronica band from the Philadelphia-- *gasp* --I know, I too thought that type of music was reserved for the Aussies... but HS have done a sturdy job at providing fodder for the likes for remix artists the world over, with stellar results. Here's a bunch that tickle my fancy at least.

When your tracks are already fused with 70's disco and an 80's beat, you're bound to attract the attention of 'future disco' professionals. That's what subgenre specialists Hot Pink Delorean, Designer Drugs, and Anoraak saw and heard in Hail Social, and did superb renditions that keep the spirit of the originals, but giving them that stylized retro makeover.
