Artist Mixtape #1: MSTRKRFT
- MSTRKRFT »
In the first of a new series on DiS, producers, remixers, dance makers extraordinaire MSTRKRFT have put together a 'net-bound mixtape for us, and for you, to wrap thankful lugs around.
For last year's goodness, lazy jockeys, go here to bag our latest Drownload, MSTRKRFT's much-feted remix of Metric's 'Monster Hospital'.
Back on the ledge of the present, Jesse F. Keeler, formerly of the much-loved Death from Above 1979 and now 50 per cent of the Modular-signed act with Ali P, has outed the following ten tracks of clattering, flouncing, scabrous robot-glam. Bangers to a cut... and a cut... and a cut...
Foamo – ‘Movin’ it Over Here’ (listen)
Mr Miyagi - ‘Pick Your Poison’ (JFK Remix) (listen)
the Proxy - ‘Ready to Rock’ (ALP Remix) (listen)
Timbaland - ‘Miscommunication’ (Bloody Beetroots Remix) (listen)
Jokers of the Scene - ‘Y‘all Know the Name’ (Nacho Lovers remix) (listen)
Adam Kesher - ‘Feel You In My Arms’ (Yuksek remix - JFK re-edit) (listen)
Mark Ronson - ‘Valerie’ (Sinden remix) (listen)
D.I.M. - ‘Is You’ (JFK remix) (listen)
Felix Vs. Diddy - ‘Jack U’ (Ingrosso and Angello remix) (listen)
Herve - ‘Cheap Thrills’ (listen)
“We have been working on so much shit recently - trying to work on our album while remix requests we actually want to do keep coming in. We are doing one for the Juan MacLean’s new single that everyone is going to freak out on, but we’re really trying to focus on our new album right now.
“It’s pretty different and I hope people are ready for it – it’s not going to be out for a while but I think the first single should drop in March or so.
“After December, we’re going to take a break from touring until the first single to work on the record and come back with all the ‘new shit’. Word up.”
