Continuing the DISCOHANDS tradition of introducing new and upcoming producers, we'd like to present to you Death To The Throne, a producer from Phoenix who seems to have a little bit of an obsession with Lykke Li.
When James Nelson (AKA Death To The Throne) sent me his remix of Lykke Li's cover of Knocked Up by Kings of Leon, I knew I had to hear some more from this dude. This would not be a track that I'd normally imagine getting the ol' remix treatment, but then again I'm not a producer and I'm not a talented one at that. That's why I leave the producing to music magicians (not literally) like Death To The Throne.

Like I said, Death To The Throne seems to have a bit of an obsession with Lykke Li (not to mention other things.. rhymes with jail bait). So it's only natural to include his remix of 'Lykke Li - Little Bit'.
Death To The Throne pointed out to me the fact that Lykke Li does not seem to like drums or drummers, as apparent by her music. So naturally he felt the need to fill the gap in this remix and I'd have to agree with him that it's a great improvement. So if you're reading this Lykke Li, this dude right here only wants one thing in life, to be your touring drummer. Ok, gave it a shot.

Moving away from the healthy or not Lykke Li obsession and onto another obsession, mine. M83 has been one of my musical obsessions for a long time, so I thought it would be pretty cool to include Death To The Throne's remix of 'Teen Angst' by the French Genius Anthony Gonzalez (M83). Death To The Throne puts his drummin' skillz to work on this track giving it a more energetic pace to the already hypnotic track.

And for your listening pleasure why not throw in Death To The Throne's remix of Chromeo's Fancy Footwork. As much as I like all his tracks, this beast of a track might be more up my alley. The track has all the glitch and synths a synthmeister could want as well as the underlying splash of banger, waiting to burst out. This remix right here is off the chain! One of the best Chromeo remixes I've ever heard, so yeah.
