Chromeo reworked the track Hot Mess adding in vocals from Elly Jackson aka La Roux. The new version comes along with remixes from Duck Sauce, Tiga, and Djedjotronic, an unbelievable group of remixers. The stuff he is been putting out recently is filthy and producers from Laidback Luke to Afrojack to Boys Noize have all been dropping his tracks in recent sets.
You may have already heard it on the latest Kitsune Maison 10 compilation. This percussive, rhythmically hypnotic dance song, accompanied with a quirky & driven bass line is a tribute to the terrifying looking but yet emotionally soft & musically talented monster on the sleeve of the record. Blockhead is a much needed vitamin injection, jam packed with energy to shake off the winter gloom and a great kick-off for 2011.
Boys Noize have compiled 12 modern acid jams by BNR artists and friends like Feadz, Joakim & Krikor and Brodinski, paying tribute to 20 years of acid. Some of the producers on this compilation spent their time with all kinds of analogue gear and mixers in pursuit of the original warm sound they love, whereas others use just a laptop. This is fresh acid that has not been heard before, produced by incredible young talents that know everything about the acid life, producers that take this genre to another level, into the future.
Big floor electrohouse tackle from Shadow Dancer. Expect fat and chuggy bassline business in Catmoves, uplifting electro-rocky propulsion from Parallax, Siriusmo-style acid-house cheek in Murder Room and grinding sawtoth serrations from Lo Fighters.
