In the world of “electronic dance music” (or any other kind of music, for that matter) Jokers Of The Scene’s recent J0T5 EP is an enjoyably expansive listen, if we do say so ourselves. The accompanying J0T5 RMXD EP takes the tracks in even more unexpected directions. But who says it can’t go any further? Download this pulverizing techno take on “Black Mountie” from Teenage Riot-er and fellow Torontonian, St Mandrew.

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
