Another band to add to that list is Fortune. Thomas Mars from Phoenix loves these boys, saying they’re fresh and a band people should know about, for sure. So, with those sorts of accolades, you’re gonna expect something pretty spot on. And…well…just to keep you guessing for a bit longer…wait for it…yes! You would be spot on!
The Fortune boys have put out a fair bit lately, with a remix EP (they remix the likes of Phoenix, Pony Pony Run Run, Ruben Steiner, Axe Riverboy, and MTMT – grab the WHOLE THING OVER HERE!), and an EP of their own stuff with some remixes done by M83 and Blackjoy. They’ve also got their debut LP coming out on March 22nd, so watch out for that one.
Anyway, check out my fave from their EP, the M83 remix of Mission, and Fortune’s remix of Hey You! by Pony Pony Run Run taken off their remix EP.
ok. So something dropped in the inbox this morning. It was a new mix of a track called Fortune by two dudes from the UK called NAPT. Oh, and it’s a bit of breaks. I used to love breaks. Being an ‘ex-drummer’, I use to think breaks and drum’n'bass were the two coolest genres within electronic music. Anyway, this new mix was produced exclusively for Fabric London in light of NAPT’s pretty massive gig their on this Friday night. Wish I could go…but you know, with being on the other side of the world, that kinda stuff is difficult.
ok. here it is.
This wouldn’t be a remix that post without a few other tracks that have been a little non stop on ze ipod. Next up is a track by some dude called Esser. Being in Australia, I never really heard much about this guy, but I think in the UK you either really like him, or you really don’t like him. Anyway, a remix dropped in the inbox a few days ago by Treasure Fingers. Is good. Has been in my head since. Thanks toRCRD LBL for this one.
Final on the list of tricks is those dudes the Lost Valentinos. They’ve got a track called Thief which is pretty darn sweet. There is a remix by a dude called Shinichi Osawa. This is a pretty incredible remix in my books. It goes freaking hard. Thumps all the way home. Like, you’ve heard good amazing electro. But then there’s Shinichi Osawa’s remix of it. haha…a little obsessed. You can thanks the Radio Funktrust boys for getting me onto this.
That’s it for this one. They’re all stella stella tracks. Definitely worth the check.
K. That’ll do the ramble for now.
