A-Trak’s remix of Sebastien Tellier’s “Kilometer” (off his appropriately lusty Sexual Sportswear LP) has hit the internets this week, with Busy P calling it the “remix of the year” and Pitchfork giving up some props as well. Cop it on Record Makers when l’official single drops in a few weeks. Meanwhile, give it a listen on our Fairtilizer player. Violins!
(Sidebar: always wanted someone to call their list section “Who Charted?” but alas…)
Meanwhile, the Jokers’ sooper scary tech remix of The Subs’ “My Punk” is out now, and you can grab it at Discobelle or Fluokids. Their remixes of Congorock’s “Runark” and Bag Raiders’ “Fun Punch” will be out on FG shortly, along with a bunch of other mixes for other artists/labels, so stay tuned…
In the “blast from the past” department, our friends at Turntable Lab finally re-uploaded their “Record Check” section from the OG site (98-02) and it is a phenomenally enjoyable timekiller. As opposed to the typical “rare groove” web outposts – of which there are many fine but snoozy examples – the Lab Record Check focuses less on expensive records and more on DJs’ personal stories behind random vinyl of all varieties, with tons of anecdotes and other randomness thrown in for good measure. A nice little reminder of why we started doing this all crazy shit in the first place!
A random sidebar to our office Obamawatchin today: Twitter updates from all the folks in DC for the inauguration led us from @WaleDC‘s tweets to @solangeknowles to the Solange OkayPlayer blog, where she listed A-Trak’s “Say Whoa” in her Fave Songs of 08. Thanks!
