NYC duo Flagrant Fowl swiftly follow up their Canyon Dancing EP with the fifth release snappily titled FF005 which sees Cousin Cole and Pocketknife putting the pitchfolk favourite retouches to one side and instead focus on sublime danceteria refixes of hipster jerkoff favourites.
Cousin Cole takes on Pop Art’s most famous exponent and a man of uncrushed ego, Kanye West, and succeeds where others have failed in improving on that musical equivalent of marmite, Love Lockdown, a favourite with A Trak, with Cuz Cole’s uptempo acid disco rerub of Champion that was all over hypem a few weeks back also included for good measure.
Pocketknife contributes an extended version of his rejected remix of Lykke Li’s Breaking It Up, adding weight to the argument that some major labels lack even the smallest degree of musical taste when it comes to approving remixes (see the rotten egg CSS remix of Lykke Li for proof)
Cousin Cole and Pocketknife also took part in the excellent Beats In Space radio show on Tuesday last week with typically excellent results, despite Mr Tim Sweeney showing audible signs of his NYE horse Meat Disco excursions catching up with him.
Those that indulge in Beats in Space podcasts will no doubt already have enjoyed the show. Those that don’t might want to question where their life is going or maybe just take a listen
