When the Black Lips first starting sending in music of the new stuff they were working on, one of the immediate favorite was "Veni Vidi Vici." It's just so sexy and different from what you'd expect to come from the mind of Cole Alexander. For some reason listening to this song makes us want to wear tassles. So it makes sense that when shifting through new songs to remix, Diplo would settle on this guy. Now instead of just one Cole, there's a whole choir, the vibraslap is all over the place and there is enough grunting and driving beat to make you need some alone time.
Well, we all knew it had to end, but it was fun while it lasted. Today sees the end of the Chromeo Jaxxy Take Over Week. We hope it was as good for you as it was for us. Cause it was a motherlovin party over here this week. Today we present the Sinden remix of "Tenderoni" featuring Kid Sister. There's a pretty magical family with A-Track, Chromeo and Kid Sister percolating and Kid Sister's verse on this track elevates the 'roni to whole new levels. Grab this tune and pump it while you give those booty shorts one more weekend in the sun.
Today we bring you another interpretation of "Bonafied Lovin" straight from David Wolf. There's a decidedly 80s feel to this jam that makes us think that David Wolf, Dave and P have some secret understanding of Duran Duran and Dire Straights that the rest of us can only strive for. On the other hand, this Sammy Bananas remix of "Tenderoni" brings us back to the glorious 00 when you couldn't drink a beer without hearing "I got a fever. And the only prescription, is more cowbell."
By the time the seductive "step step, step step" comes in on this Dr J mashup of Missy Elliott's "Lose Control" and Chromeo's "Tenderoni," we all sort of loose our minds and start spontaneous dance parties at our desks over here in Brooklyn. Between all the Justice action and these Chromeo remixes, we've become excellent chair dancers. Like, maybe even competitive level. Making us want to bust a move on one of those rainbow light-up dance floors a la the Har Mar disco-off in the Starsky & Hutch flick is Mercurius FM's remix of "Tenderoni." We can see the neon already.
We were sitting around yesterday with MTV on Mute through Parental Control and then excitedly blasting and rewinding and rewatching Chromeo's 52/52 segments. Seriously. It was kind of completely awesome seeing Chromeo on MTV - hanging in Jimmy Jazz, doing karaoke, performing on top of a bus - the usual. We love the performance of "Bonafied Lovin" with Times Square as the backdrop, which you can check out here. We also love this DJ Eli remix of "Bonafied Lovin" with Pase Rock dropping a verse into the mix so snuggly it feels like he and Dave 1 have been dishing about triflin girls for years.
LA Riots has remixed the likes of Justice, the Cure, Mystery Jets and Kid Sister, but forgive us if we think this remix of "Bonafied Lovin" isn't one of the best things we've heard in a minute. It's sparking quite the dance party in our little corner of Brooklyn. Come back every day this week for more funked up Chromeo nuggets - along with taking over MTV's 52/52, Chromeo's taking over Jaxxy this week, and we couldn't be more ready to bust a move.
