Kelpe might have made of my favorite 1+ minute intros to a song with the beginning of Cut It Upwards. It has hints of Four Tet and early Manitoba(aka Caribou) to the point that I think he was almost trying to replicate their sound, either way the track came out great with quality samples.

Tom Croose comes out with his first remix of one of his own songs as Worst Friends, the song will be out today on an EP with additional remixes by Shigeto and Bostro Pasopeo. Tom will be djing in San Francisco this Tuesday, you should definitely swing by and say hello if you’re in the area.

I’m sure Der Zyklus gets plenty of comparisons to Kraftwerk, I swear i’ve heard this with an Erlend Oye acapella over it years ago but I could be dreaming that up. Such a gentle track, if Tron ever made a snow globe as a promo item this song should be the midi song that plays while neon and black glitter swirled around.

Fred Falke doesn’t do many remixes that aren’t nearly perfect for playing out on the weekend, this remix for Hot Chip could be one of the best remixes they will ever get.

Kelpe – Cut It Upwards


Worst Friends – AG (Tom Croose Innerspace Ski Boot Mix)


Der Zyklus – Mathematische modelle


Hot Chip – Colours (Remixed By Fred Falke)

I heard Kelpe in a music store one time. Fell in love immediately. I think it’s considerably better than Four Tet.

That Kelpe album art is just plain surreal! The artist really had fun creating that and it is definitely being added to my collection. The song is rather special too, so all in all a really great piece of work from many angles.

Der Zyklus is really special, I haven’t heard them before. As a Kraftwerk lover I am greatly impressed by their work.

Have a magical, musical sunday everybody.
