done did it again: Hot Chip/Spank Rock

"Leave Me This Way"

It wasn't even 24 hours ago that Mr. Mortenson enlightened us by upping Hot Chip's remix of Matthew Dear's "Don and Sherri." Luckily, the boys from Manchester don't sleep and when they aren't sleeping they're up late hunched over computers and analog synths crafting full throttle remixes by some of our favorites. This time it's Ladytron's "Destroy Everything You Touch." This was a big ass car rattling anthem for me a couple years back and while this slightly string-fueled subdued, almost eery, remix is the antithesis of the electro punk original, its a what of what a remix should be; a reinterpretation of the original, seen through the fresh eyes of some flourescent Brits. This ones more of a sex jam than a dancefloor ass rattler (not that there is anything wrong with that).

While Spank Rock's Naheem is busy making hoodrat hoodrat hoochie mama's get busy in the club, fellow Spank Rock'r XXXChange decided to throw the mp3 swallowing public a bone by sending the bass loving Swedes at Discobelle his phenomenal remix Thom Yorke's "the Eraser." A nice time of the year for Radiohead fans. This ones right up their with SR's "Earth Intruders" remix. Hot shit.
