A Certain Air Of Exclusivity

June 12, 2007

Yes yes I have a exclusive Crookers remix for you all – seriously, other than myself and the good kids from Milan, only two other people have this in their possession. In fact it’s so exclusive, the identity of the artist/band they have remixed hasn’t been disclosed to me.

????? – Set Your Body Free (Crookers Remix)

Some not quite as exclusive remix heat comes in the form of Kate Nash. I can’t say I was ever the biggest fan of Kate Nash, certainly not as much as Mr Upside Down Stupid Hat, out of all the so called Mini Allens I always preferred George Pringle.

But I got sent a new remix of her track Foundations by refixers du jour Metronomy last week (blame a hefty weekend on the rum et al for the fact it’s only being posted now) It’s quite pleasant in a wonky folk gets it on with sloppy hiphop behind the bike shed sorta way.

The Glamour Soundsystem just hooked me up with a few tracks. Back when I interviewed Miss Odd Kidd she was more than glowing in her plaudits for this one man electro outfit out of Birmingham.

Some concerted research on the internets demonstrates that she is not alone in being quite fond, with more myspace friends than the population of The Faroe Islands (perhaps) and several glowing articles for his recently released Drink after Drink single and the fact he’s played gigs with Digitalism, Teenagers and Miss Odd Kidd herself among others.

Whats the music like you might be saying? Well it’s nice yo, just the right amount of camp art student performing the new wave music from The Mighty Boosh at All You Can Eat whilst drunk on white wine, with big synths and sloppy electro drums and laser gun noises.
