Chromeo + Siriusmo = some futuristic funk. Germany’s Siriusmo is consistently mentioned as a favorite producer this year by the dance music elite. With efforts like this, it’s difficult to disagree.
Switch returns to the remix game. A refreshing departure from the Major Lazer sound, even for just a moment. He was recruited to provide a reinterpretation of The Big Pink‘s “Dominos.” The band has an album out now called “A Brief History Of Love” on 4AD. Switch‘s remix is a triumphant return to what put him on the map a few years back. A tough, glitchy, jacking, and percussive remake with proper use of the vocal. Not bad Mr. Taylor…not bad at all.
The Big Pink – Dominos (Switch Remix)

Flashback time. Circa 1999/2000 From Paris to London. Zdar, Boombass, Jocelyn Brown and friends in the studio. So many familiar faces. A great time in house music history.
German DJ and producer Malente, is responsible for a fun club record out now on Fool’s Gold Records. “I like It” is a minimal disco inspired tune built around a very familiar vocal sample. This proves that you shouldn’t always take music (especially dance music) so seriously. Cheeky indeed. Remixes come courtesy of Mikix The Cat and Riva Starr.
Release is supported by a beautiful video by Stefan Friessner/Hadrian Hammer.
