Solid Food

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.

Don't think it's expired. Click on the 'free' download button and then enter the three character code and then you should be away!

damn, must be a problem with my computer or something. I just keep getting this message:

"Download-session invalid. Please click here.

Possible reasons:

Download-session expired. Direct-links last a few minutes for free users and a few days for premium-users.
You requested this download-session from a different IP than yours. If you use AOL, try a different browser."

I've tried it in both IE and Firefox but no luck!

The download session expired thing comes from when you leave it too long before going on the 'download' button. Try it again but do it straight after the countdown finishes and it should be fine.
