Sammy and Maggie are back with a new cover for ya, this time turning Ryan Leslie and Red Cafe’s rap-n-b jam into a “triumphant disco banger,” as Sam puts it. It’ll get you in the mood for their first live show of the year, going down at Brooklyn’s Glasslands on Sunday, January 29th (get advance tickets here) and set the stage for their brand new EP of originals, Ring Ring, dropping on Valentine’s Day, 2/14. Stay tuned…
The Jokers Of The Scene one-two punch continues with the release of J0T5 RMXD. It’s a companion piece to last week’s J0T5 EP, and features the sterling remix work of some of electronic music’s finest: Daniel Avery (aka Stopmakingme), Shadow Dancer (BNR), Hrdvsion (Wagon Repair), Savile & Olin, Cosmic Kids (Throne Of Blood), Gingy & Bordello (Turbo) and Babe Rainbow (Warp).
From Hrdvsion’s slow, funky take on “In Order To Trance” to Daniel Avery dropping breakbeat science on “Black Mountie” (already a favorite of Andrew Weatherall and more), this remix EP offers the Jokers’ peers and contemporaries a chance to launch dance satellites of their own into the duo’s enjoyably unique orbit. Check it out on iTunes, Beatport, and everywhere fine mp3s are sold. Read More
