Gtronic - Iron Man EP

This is massive, massive, massive tunes here in eP!!!
I heard "Iron man" a long time ago in Volatile's mix, and i was very impressed, and now, just for anniversary of my blog, a have such a big present from Gtronic!!!! I'm really happy! EP Includes remixes from one of my favourites - Hostage, from greattunes makers - Stereoheroes, and newcomer for my ears - Ebokai.

All tracks are worth listening! Remixes not really remixes, in my opinion they are something between remix and edit. Stereoheroes remix is more harder in bass section,
and Hostage adds some samples around the full leinght of the track, something 8bit kind samples - funny stuff!) Ebokai for me is better than others, really powerfullised bass and new synts give for the track second live....and original do not need any comments! Жииир)))

As for Destroyer, this is son of Iron Man, new more harder beat and synts, new tone of the bass... But it is really maked under Gtronic impression from "Iron man", and not bad track he made, but hope it won't be his tradition to use one bass in different tracks like Marlow for example...

Mandarinebeats Interview 002: Hektagon

Hektagon's tracks were the first I had listen in Dubstep, it was a track "Hektagon - Strange voices" and from his tracks and tracks of Kromestar and Cluekid i opened for myself a beautifull world of Dubstep music! And now, since one year and a half, i have an honor to ask some questions to Hektagon. That is great, i think!)

-Let's start from a simple and very popular question in Russia, How are you? What are you doing now? Tell everything, without limits.

I am doing very well thanks. Right now I am working on a few remixes and on a second album.

-Your album is released, what do you feel? How long have you been working on it? What were the difficulties? What did you worry about most of all, or maybe still worrying? Why did you call it “London”? What is the best\the worst track on this album from your point of view? Does your mother like it?

I think is great that I have managed to write a whole album I feel very proud. I have worked on the album for 6 months solid. The pre-mastering of the album was very draining I have worked 17 hours days at Vin100 studio to make it sound right. I have worried on how will the album be received by the listeners. I called it London because I wanted to reflect what this city makes me feel musically. I love every single track on the album; each one of them has a story to tell. She loves it.

-And now let’s start from the beginning of your career. I know you started to make music in Northen Spain, why did you start with Hip-Hop? And who supported you that time? Maybe any of your relatives?

I just loved Hip-hop, it was so cool back then, and I felt I was always learning and hearing fresh things. All my friends but it was just the beginning.

-How did you progress from hip-hop maker into dubstep?

Well I started to experiment more and more with hip-hop using slowed down sounds and samples which were not heard in hip-hop tunes before, and one day I accidentally heard a track by Nookie called the sound of music on tv and it blew me away. Then I started producing D&B for 6 years and met a lot of other musicians along the way, while studying sound engineering and music tech, that open my mind to other sounds. It feel very natural to produce dubstep, however I make many different styles of music I don’t like to restrict my self.

-Is your music style depends from the place where you live in?

Yes definitely.

-You have not so many your own solo releases, and now album is ready, why? Some people are waiting for years to make their own album. Don’t you think it is "green" or you do not want to waste your time, and an album for you only one step for anything bigger and greater?

Well I have had a few releases already and I have been making music for over 12 years so yeah I think I was ready, I have many other unreleased albums I have made through the years. The label though it will make more sense to have an album out instead of a collection of singles, so people can really appreciate my sound.

-What stuff do you use for your production? Have you got a special algorythm for your production? What can you advise for the begginers in dubstep production? What is the first thing they need to know in they work?

My brain and a few plugins. No I don’t have a special method I just go with the flow and try something different every time I write a song. I will say to beginners in Dubstep production listen to what is out there and what people are producing at the moment and do the complete opposite, the scene will only grow by people trying different things out, not by copying each other.

-Collaboration with what people was the most interesting for you? Whit whom do you wan to collaborate in future?

I haven’t though of that yet, I will say I would like to collaborate with people that have got a completely different approach to music making so I can learn more things.

-What is the ideal party for you? Describe it...

The ideal party for me is the one in which each tune the dj plays sounds very different and interesting. Also the best nights are the ones in which when you leave the venue you can still remember some of the tracks and think to your self that was awesome.

-Do you know something about Russia? Maybe you have heard someone from Russian music producers? Would you like to visit Russia for party or an excursion?

Yes I do but I have never been to Russia. I have heard of producers such as DJ Vadim.
Sure, I would love to visit Russia. Actually one of me and Vin100 tracks called Perpetual got released on an ORB compilation Cd called Tundra and Sunflakes which was released on Russian label called Ketama. I might be coming over to Russia to Dj around Feb-March 2010.

-If you can change something in your life, what would it be?

Hmm, that is a difficult question; I will say I would not change anything since you never know what the future might bring.

Thank you and Good luck! =_)

Today i have a little exclusive for you, my readers. Here is a Kromestar interview specially for my blog. Here in interview, he tells us about his impression abou his album, the begging of his career and about some more interesting things. Welcome!

-First of all, how are you and what are you doing now?

Kromestar: "I'm cool! I'm here at F-One's studio smoking and drinking tea you know how we do."

-Can you tell me who is Kromestar? And what does it mean (Kromestar)?

Kromestar: "Kromestar is a Dubstep producer - half human, half machine. I thought this was a music interview not a job interview... lol..."

-How did you start to make your own music? When?

Kromestar: "I have got a mad passion for sound from a young age, then i got hold of fruity loops and it was a wrap. It started from there really. I started making music in 97 producing Hip-Hop."

-Was it successful start or something went wrong?

Kromestar: "It is kicked off in 2004 when i making grime for "Sweetbeetz" under my Ironsoul alias."

-Now you have a great experience in music production. Which works do you consider the best and which the worst?

Kromestar: "I would not say there is the worst. I try my best in everything i do, whether i make Dubstep, Grime or Hip-Hop."

-What can you say about your collaboration with F-One, Hatcha, Cessman, Cotti, Walsh and Virus Syndicate? Was it good experience for you?

Kromestar: "It was a good experience doing a track with Virus Syndicate, because i have never had vocals on my Dubstep tracks but they hurt up the dub. F-one is my family, i work with him every week. I also produced a compilation with Hatcha called "Brothers Grimm", that was an experience still... lol... Walsh's my dawg. That collaboration was live, that's it really!"

-With whom do you want to collaborate in the future?

Kromestar: "Dj Premier, Dr Dre and Pharrell Williams."

Kromestar: "I am working on a few experimental beats at the moment. Getting in my own zone."

-Have you got your own algorithm for making tracks? Or it differs from time to time? What stuff do you use?

Kromestar: "Yeah it starts different all the time. I just start with a sound that is new to my ears. I use Fruity Loops or Logic 8 Pro at F-ones studio."

-Do you want to try yourself in other styles of music, like Trance or Rock for example?

Kromestar: "I would like to make Trance or Rock. That is like a whole new level and frequencies."

-Your album, what do you feel about it?

Kromestar: "I think it was a good outcome. It had different moods on it."

-What did you feel while making it?

Kromestar: "To be honest, i write that album while i was going through mad domestics with people and family in my life."

-What were you inspirited by?

Kromestar: "My family."

-Have you got some funny stories about releasing or making your album?

Kromestar: "Not really, it was a serious time."

-Is it successful for you or you want something to change?

Kromestar: "Yeah, it was a successful project, i enjoyed making it."

-Do your parents like it?

Kromestar: "I do not live with my parents, but i gave my mum a copy still and she said it was nice... Something to drive to."

-What is your favorite track? (Not from your production)

Kromestar: ""Curzed - Dangerous" - that track does it in a dance. I also like "Breakman feat. Newham Generals - Just know that" - big tune!"

-What does your usual day like? What do you listen while chilling?

Kromestar: "Chilling at my house, burning the herb or going to check F-one in the studio and getting on the grind. When I'm chilling i listen to the Game, Mobb Deep, Raekwon, Gangstarr and N.E.R.D - their sick."

Roby Howler Beats

Представляю вашему вниманию молодого человека под псевдонимом Roby Howler, имя которого уже набирает силу за границей, так как в нашей многострадальной России к новым стилям музыки интерес приходит в самый последний момент.

Будучи еще в пеленочном возрасте, Roby Howler (Настоящее имя Вадим Роменский) стал увлекаться музыкой во всех ее проявлениях. Огромную роль в становлении его собственного музыкального стиля сыграл старший брат.

Главным хобби Вадима в возрасте 13 лет было то, что он слушал еженедельные аудиочарты от PeteTong(UK), GRAD(Rus), Kolya(Rus) и Den(Rus), которые записывал на аудиокассеты и в последствии бесконечно переслушивал.

С течением времени Roby Howler стал серьезно задумываться о написании собственной музыки. Впервые он попробовал сделать это в 15 лет, когда начал экспериментировать и изучать программу Fruity Loops. Но окончательно не определившись с концепцией будущих треков, его задумки так и не были воплощены в жизнь

В начале 2009 года, после знакомства с популярным онлайн радио Великобритании BBC Radio 1, резко меняется представления о музыке и о стилях в целом. Тяжелый Woble саунд, монотонный Tech House, африканские минималистические ритмы стали основной идеей и целью для дальнейшего творчества музыканта.

В середине 2009 года, летом, Roby Howler возобновляет попытки написания музыки. В это время он освоил множество программ, но окончательно его выбор пал на Ableton Live, который стал основной платформой для его будущего творчества. 

Начало осени 2009 года было ознаменовано завершением первых двух оригинальных треков: Basemant и Darling, которые прозвучали на RadioFrequency(UK) и был подписан контракт с Английским лейблом "Nu Style Records". Так же Вадим получил поддержку от: Wongo, Tom EQ, Kyle Watson, Jeff Doebleu. Параллельно музыкант получает заказ на изготовление ремикса на американского популярного рэп продюсера Alias от лэйбла "Crux Da House". К его Российским успехам можно отнести соглашение о совместной работе с StereoNoize ( г.Тюмень ) о создании креативного видео ряда с музыкой от Roby Howler. Движущей силой музыканта является массовая популяризация новых стилей музыки в России.

Junglist Movenment Part 2

Takomo - Death in The Stratosphere

This ia an amizing dubstep track with jungle influence! All G:Mt fans will be enjoy it! Name of the track, in my opinion is not good, because for me feelings from track are like life in Stratosphere, but who knows, maybe this Finnish duo really were in stratosphere, and really died there in their dreams, and after this they produced such a beautiful track...!

"Death in The Stratosphere" или на русский - смерть в стратосфере. Это безумно глубокий трек. Для всех фанатов фильма "время по гринвичу", он придётся по вкусу, но лично я не согласен с названием трека, так как я вижу данную музыку отображением жизни в стратосфере, но никак не смертью. Но кто знает, может этот Финский дуэт действительно был в стратосфере, и действительно там погибал в своих великих путешествиях, и после этих приключений они и написали этот трек... Всё Может быть!

November 11, 2009 Exclusive 001: Mensah

Visit Bristol and mention the name Mensah, the chances are that someones going to know the man we’re talking about. Having become involved in the Bristol music scene at an early age, there’s no surprise that he epitomizes the great things associated with the city’s music – positive, progressive and different.

Growing up listening to his Mum’s dub and reggae collection, his first taste of UK underground music was when he started going to the under-18 nights called Jungle Book at the tender age of 11, he witnessed the late and great Steve ‘Hyper’ D MCing for Nicky Blackmarket but it was the garage scene that really kindled Mensah’s first love of electronic music when he heard stalwarts such as Wookie and the Heartless Crew's DJ Fonti at the age of 13.

DJing at various nights in Bristol, and getting tired of spinning other people’s tunes, the natural progression for Mensah was to start creating the music that he had such a passion for. Starting a production course at a local Music College, he was taught by none other than Danny Byrd and was classmates with other Bristol producers, Chasing Shadows, Gemmy, Forsaken and Superisk.

Subsequently he landing a job in a Bristol music specialist store and in time he was able to build a studio. Having the likes of Roni Size, Portishead and Massive Attack passing by the shop only fuelled the desire to up his game in the production suite. This all paid off when his collaboration with dnb producer, Mutt, featured on Mutt’s album ‘Treading Water’ IN 2008, followed up with Mensah’s first solo release, ‘Sahara / Not A Shy Gyal‘, on Lo Dubs in 2009.

With aspirations of never wanting to make the same tune twice or wanting to be typecast into one genre, Mensah looks set to push whatever sound he decides to take forward. Sometimes dubstep, sometimes purple, sometimes rave – the idea is to evolve his sound naturally. And with tunes forthcoming on reputable label, Hench, he is definitely a name to earmark to achieve big things in the future…

'Pulse 80's' (a homage to Musical Mob's - Pulse X)
'Untitled Future Funk' (a futuristic piece of purple wonk!!)
'Stapleton Road' (a gritty and quite frankly "gully" tune)

He is also working on a 12" with Eddie K ('Steady As She Goes' and 'God Of Mars') possibly for release on H.E.N.C.H and has a 12" coming on M4 records a label that has seen the like of Gemmy, Wedge and Gatekeeper. the tracks are called
'Into The Darkness' and 'Warrior'. All can be heard on the mix that he has provided.

The Damn Bell Doors - youngfidget house project which is already talking with labels about releasing their tracks. Also they needed MC for their further projects, feel free to connect with them.

Микс от The Damn Bell Doors получился лёгким и не навясчивым, местами однообразным, но явно не надоедающим во время прослушивания, но вот на второй или третий раз думаю уже тяжеловато будет... В качестве бонуса даю вам их трек хоть и не в лучшем качестве (Всё из-за тех же переговоров с лэйблами), но показывающий их стиль работы, который на мой взгляд не так уж и плох.

Mix from The Damn Bell Doors is light and not boring, sometimes monotony, but really not tiresome at the time of listening. But at the second or third time of listening it can be boring... As a bonus i am giving you their track, not in best quality, but it is enough to check their not bad style =_).

Foot Willage

FOOT VILLAGE are a thunderous drum-n-shout assembly from Los Angeles - a thick forest of whirling limbs beating out rhythms for whispers and hollers to leap and dive through. Featuring members of Gang Wizard, Friends Forever and the infamous International Voice of Reason, Foot Village are pure hardcore spirit without the spark of electricity.
Erecting civilisation with drums and voices alone, Foot Village are the first nation built after the foreseeable apocalypse. Don't get this self-imposed restraint confused with some neo-luddite stance however, as Foot Village only want to inspire others with the wide potential of rock music. Anything becomes possible if you have an idea to run with.

Извините, но переводить больно лень... Могу только лишь описать ощущения от прослушивания музыки данного коллектива... А испытал я, да чего только не испытал, была истерика!!)) Ребята очень очень мощно, хоть и зачастую и однообразно. После недолго прослушивания хочеться прыгать и беситься... А после долгого уже болит голова. Музыка определённо не для прослушивания в наушниках.

New Polymorphic - Rock On EP (Updated)

As the days get darker so shall the music, so on that note we welcome back the fold Moscow's own Polymorphic with the ever turbulent 'Rock On EP'. This time out Polymorphic delivers the goods with 3 new tracks, 'Rock On', 'Scream' & 'Move Faster'. The EP also features a remix of the title track by Marseille who also had a hand it turning out Proxy's Raven last year. This EP is not for the feight at heart. Both mixes of Rock On tear things up with a decidely old school electro undercurrent while keeping things noisy and agressive on the top end. And there's only one thing we can really say about the last two tracks because they are that scary...'Scream' WILL make you 'Move Faster'.

Out Now on Beatport!!!

01. Rock on

Proxy Dubstep remixes

Сегодня делюсь с вами двумя совершенно замечательными дабстеп ремиксами на нашего земляка The Proxy (Женя Пожарнов). Оба ремикса достаточно мощны, так же как и оригинальный стиль Жени.

Первый ремикс от Bare Noise, Отличается неистовским битом и разрезанным оригинальным бассом из трека, поставленный так как нужно для дабстеп музыки. По сути изменена лишь бочка и скорость, а так же добавленный "кричащий" голосовой сэмпл в конце)
The Proxy - Dancing In The Dark (OlliE! & Bare Noize Remix)

Второй ремикс от Evol Intent интересен тем что звучит более медленне чем оригинал и тем самым протаскивает слушателя по всей своей длинне. Так же сохранён оригинальный басс и пара срезок с трека. Изменена координально лиш бочка. Из добавок можно принять во внимание голосовой сэмпл "Hey!", а так же более глубокий басс позади основного.

Volatile was formed only two years ago through a trans-alpine connection of two young yet versatile producers, NubiS from Slovenia and Feral from Switzerland. They started this project in order to combine different aspects from different genres to make something new, something different, something exciting... The pair shared a passion for 90’s big beat, drum'n'bass and the new wave of electro, which gave birth to a perilous monster: the sound so powerful and chaotic that it should be measured with the Richter magnitude scale. NubiS's tribute for Viotale music producing is modern electro part and from Feral drum'n'bass and dubstep influences. The youngsters’ flair for destruction was noticed swiftly – The Proxy picked up their very first single and tracklisted it in his mix for Kissy Sell Out’s BBC Radio 1 show, while Hostage started spreading their name through his live sets and by praising them on the musical blogosphere. Their first official release – Faces Of War EP – has seen the light of day through an independent digital label Studio Internova shortly after. While the conscientious twosome continued to produce track after track, their take on Röyksopp’s Tricky Tricky landed nearly at the top of the popularity chart on several occasions. With a potent fascination of music and heaps of exciting unreleased materials, Volatile is destined to explode. Get to know them, before your friends do. To the point, in near future they are planning on releasing some tracks in the near future! One of them is "Retaliation", but the other two are still in secret...

So this is Volatile! Great musicians!
Enjoy their music! And support them by buying their music on Trackitdown and Junodownload.

Volatile создали всего лишь два года назад. Транс-Альпийский союз (Как они сами себя называют) двух еще не совсем опытных, но безусловно подающих надежду продюссера: NubiS из Словении и Feral из Щвейцарии (Настоящих имён они к сажолению не называют). Ребята запустили свой проект с целью соединения разных аспектов электронной музыки, для того чтобы создать что-то новое, что-то захватывающее, что-то необычное... Они питали страсть к Big Beat'у 90х, Drum & Bass'у, а так же новой волне Electro, что в итоге породило опасного монстра: чья музыка настолько мощная и хаотичная, что она может быть измерена лишь по шкале Рихтера. Вкладом Нубиса в музыку Волатайл является Электро её составляющая, а от идей Ферала, Волатайл получает Дабстеп и Драмндбэйс составляющую... Их тяга к разрушения была замчена быстро - наш легендарный земляк Женя Пожарнов так же известный под псевдонимом The Proxy вкллючил их трек "Faces of War" в треклист своего гостевого микса на Kissy Sell Out’s BBC Radio 1 show, в это время Англичанин Hostage начал распростарнять имя "Volatile" в своих лайв сэтах и в блогах по всему миру. Их первый официальный релиз - "Faces of War EP" - увидел свет на независимом цифровом лэйбле "Studio Internova" немного времени спустя. В то время когда они добросовестно трудились и трудятся над своими треками, их ремикс на трек "Röyksopp - Tricky Tricky" находился в верхушках чартов крупнейшего ресурса по поиску музыки в блогах - "The Hype Machine". Ну и в завершении могу сказать, что огромный потенциал дуэта, а так же большое количество неизданного материала обязаны дать о себе знать, и вскоре Volatile будет широко известен по всему миру, а пока "Узнайте о них первее, чем это сделают ваши друзья!" (Цитата Volatile). Кстати в будущем времени они планируют подписать несколько новых треков, один из них "Retaliation", но названия еще двух они держат в секрете.... А так же они ведут переговоры с Австралийским лэйблом "Trashbag Kids".

Gatekeeper should have hailed from Haddonfield, Illinois, all cramped muscles, tension and the paranoia of a nebulous hallucination forever dancing in the periphery of your vision, their icy synthetic progressions unfurl in front of us like black pillars of smoke rising in the desolate streets of an empty suburban landscape from which everyone disappeared one spring night, TV still on, dinner cooling on the kitchen table, swings in a garden creaking ever so slightly - we still wonder what happened.

Or a silver blade held by a velvet fist cast in iron essaying a message of pain in the vertebrae of your spine, but not quite willing to deliver it yet, it’s all dark, the way we like it.

As it is they come from Chicago, which suits us fine and makes sense inasmuch their music has something of the Warehouse, just listen to ‘Mirrors’, which comes across like some sort of nightmarish scenario where Nitzer Ebb jacked Philip Glass’ studio during the recording of the Candyman soundtrack to inflict upon us one of the most gloriously macabre pieces of synthetic horror music we have had the pleasure to enjoy for a while, we can imagine such tableaux of carnage to these sounds!

Do not miss Gatekeepers "Optimus prime" single wich will be available at October 26
on FRIGHT records.

"Chicago's finest purveyors of goulish EBM electro carnage. Their music embodies all that we like about 1980's cinematic can of xourse see the long shadow of one true master John Carpenter projected over the icy electroid landscapes and obsessive synth melodies painted on damp concrete with sounds made of black leather, cursed silver and blood-splattered celluloid" - 20JAZZFUNKGREATS

BreakZhead feat. DANDYskills - Religion

Another great work from Belorussian guys Zmitek & Danila with collaboration with
Russian fellow Vyacheslav Kogan from far Vladivostok. Zmityas vocals here reminds me H.P. Baxxter from Scooter. Dubstep beats, flowing bass. Dynamic feels around the hole track, it is really dance breaks track. But maybe if there would be electric guitar.... so can give only 4 from 5 to this track.

Buy track at Beatport and another of their works you can check here.

Yesterday in a second time i found for myself one of the greatest dubsteppers in the universe - SELFSIMILAR! I think in tandem with Trillbass they can move mountains or make planet bouncing on the orbit. But only i know about it that Selfsimilar hails from rainy Seattle WA and spends a lot of time pushing buttons at late hours. Currently living in Southern California getting red from all the sun. That's all...

Вчера я во второй раз открыл для себя одного из лучших Дабстепперов галактики и это американец Selfsimilar! Я думаю в тандеме с Trillbass они бы могли свернуть горы или заставить нашу планету подпрыгивать на своей орбите. Но единственное что я знаю про него что он родом из дождливого города Сиетла и прововодит много времени стуча по клавишам в недетское время))) А сейчас живет в Южной Калифорнии где загорает целыми днями...помоему так...)

Dj Sega

Dj Sega is one of my favorites from Mad Decent label... He creates amazing club Hip-Hop and Break Beat tracks and remixes. One of them is remix on "Rob THREEZY - You Bad"... This is amazing, bouncing track, that do not let you to stop over the full length.
There is no a secret, that such kind of tracks is making from loops and samples without generators and drum machines.... But this is another branch of music production and, i think, it is very popular among clubbers and producers. So check it, and say what do you think about it, and of course do not forget to buy a track here if you'll like it, of course, but if not, delete it..)))

Baby Monster

 Отличнейшее творение от Американского дуэта из штата Орегон "Baby Monster". Нойзовый басс в сочетании с великолепным и проникновенным вокалом не делают этот трек уникальным,  но добавив свою изюминку группа смогла сделать свой трек похожим на что-то между Sigur Ros и Big Pink. Релиз будет выпущен на лэбле "50 Bones", своеобразной "фабрике хитов", домашнем лэйбле для "Little Boots" и "The Virgins".

Chromeo - Dj Kicks

pimp myspace

Chromeo is P-Thugg and Dave 1: best friends since their adolescence, virtuoso musicians, walking hip hop encyclopedias, and the only successful Arab/Jew partnership since the dawn of human culture. After spending the three years since the release of their debut album, She’s In Control, jet setting, globetrotting, and embarking on an overall sensual conquest of planet Earth, Chromeo headed back to their Montreal lab to put together album number deux.

The result, Fancy Footwork, is quite simply the most smoothed-out, hook-heavy, unabashed lovers’ funk since…Chromeo’s last album, actually. What makes this footwork so fancy, you ask? Step the fuck off and open your heart to the finest distillation of Minneapolis groove this side of Mazarati. Dave and Pee are back in the ‘07 to heal the fractured soul of dance music. Teenage lovers, 20 something blogpoders, 30 something burn-out ex-raver “graphic designers” and 40 something sistas can all finally party under one roof...and that roof has a name, AND that roof is on fire, and the only ones who can put out that funk-fire also happen to be the guys the roof is named after: CHROMEO.

Chromeo is slick. Chromeo is dripping with reverb. Chromeo is Moog riffs, luxurious harmonies, macho guitar solos and real-deal songcraft. From the dancefloor-ready singles “Fancy Footwork” and “Tenderoni,” to the autobiographical Jew-boy ballad “Momma's Boy,” to the epic sax-laden album closer “100%,” Fancy Footwork rolls you through a sleek, melodic world where all you need to worry about is whether you’ve got your sunglasses on and the right moves to keep up. Remember the debate when Chromeo first came on the scene? The endless back and forth about whether those boys were joking or not? Well, Fancy Footwork will put any vestigial haters to sleep forever. There ain’t nothing “ironical” about this music. It’s Hall & Oates riding on 22’s, busting shots in the air with Quincy Jones driving. That shit ain’t funny.

So there you have it: Chromeo, the band reborn...the sex, the beats, the dream, the suits, the gloves, the laughs, the tears, the past and the future. All rolled up into one big blunt, smoked up through Pee’s talkbox tube and exhaled into your brain. Enjoy.

And here's the intetview with Chromeo... Here you'll hear all you need about their compilation and themselfs.
