DFA Remixes: Chapter Two

In October, DFA Records unleash the second installment of their remix compilations. This chapter sees Goldsworthy and Murphy tackle a slightly more broader range of artists than the first chapter, what with relicks of Nine Inch Nails sharing space with Junior Senior. The vinyl release contains less tracks than the CD but replaces some of the original remixes with RARE instrumental versions.


CD Tracklisting
1. Tiga – Far From Home (DFA Remix)
2. Junior Senior – Shake Your Coconuts (DFA Remix)
3. N.E.R.D. – She Wants To Move (DFA Remix)
4. Hot Chip – Colours (DFA Remix)
5. Nine Inch Nails – Hand That Feeds (DFA Remix)
6. Goldfrapp – Slide In (DFA Remix)
7. Chromeo – Destination Overdrive (DFA Remix)
8. Unkle – In A State (DFA Remix)

Vinyl Tracklisting
A. Tiga – Far From Home (DFA Instrumental Remix)
B. i) Junior Senior – Shake Your Coconuts (DFA Remix)
ii) Chromeo – Destination Overdrive (DFA Remix)
C. Goldfrapp – Slide In (DFA Instrumental)
D. Unkle – In A State (DFA Remix)

As a wee taster of the compilation you can have the knee deep in cowbell remix of N.E.R.D. – She Wants To Move

The Roots – Game Theory

The new Roots joint, Game Theory is released on August 29th. I’m not really that much of a fan of their music, but one track off the album really caught my attention. Don’t Feel Right – feat. Maimouna Youssef. The neck snapping drums, piano stabs, , chugging bass line, Youssef’s growling chorus and some subtle Ohio Players / Kool & The Gang sampling combine for some boombox hotness
