Broad Cake

One of the more pleasant surprises of last years Hot Chip contribution to the DJ Kicks canon was the inclusion of lost curio Short Road by Wax Stag– a track that was some three years old by this time but was definitely one of the “shout out what the fuck is this track? and then realise you’re on a packed tube with two perplexed German tourists for immediate company” moments.

For an indepth explanation of how it came to be included check this FACT interview.

Fledgling label People In The Sky (responsible for those excellent Friendly Fires remixes from late last year) have signed Wax Stag up for an album but before that drops Short Road is getting re/released with along with some remixes.

Wax Stag himself contributes a splendid 80s boogie refix, whilst Eastern European body builders Metal on Metal carry where they left off with their Bloc Party remix – all noisey riffs, heavy basslines and cut up drums.

The Short Road EP drops on 12” vinyl and download formats on March 24th – watch out for the Wax Stag longplayer in the summer.
