Great to see Oh My Gosh back online - probably the best techno blog on the internet, and a source for much of my new music. Here's hoping they're able to continue to do what they do so well without any problems or interference...
Anyway, the other day that very blog put up a track which I have been rabidly awaiting ever since I heard of its existence back in early December. Such is my relief at now owning a copy, I feel justified in posting it myself...
The track in question is, drum roll please....Solid Groove's remix of Hot Chip. Now I don't go in for all the Hot Chip worship which I see/hear everywhere, but the original of 'Over & Over' is a classic, no doubt about it....This remix, then, is essentially just a fat, bumpin' Solid Groove hippety-house tune with vocal samples of the 'Chip artfully cut into its breakdowns. A masterclass in how to handle a sacred cow, basically.
Hot Chip - Over & Over (Solid Groove Remix) // DFA/EMI
It should be out on DFA/EMI in the very near future; we'll let you know when so you can buy a copy and put some hot chips on the table of Hot Chip.
I'm going to Bristol now for a bleary reunion with my boys Puffin and Carnage (not to mention Sam, Lisa and Nicky Murrell); whatever we do, if tonight doesn't end in a red-eyed seance around Achso, I'll be heartily disappointed....Might not post for a coupla days, so have a good weekend.
