i really love chromeo. needy girl is one of the best songs in recent years, their remixes of feist and treasure fingers are simply wondrous, and watching them in interviews they just come across as the coolest dudes around. then i saw this.
yes, there they are on yo gabba gabba! extolling the virtues of cleanliness, managing to make even washing your hands cool (or sexy, if you’re a girl). i was wandering through myspace today and i found the above track in their player. they call it yo gabba joint, but i’ve renamed it very clean boy. oh yeah.
Chromeo – Very Clean Boy
also shout out to ben white of squeaky bleeps for getting his asher roth remix featured on the mad decent blog. holla!
big tings from fool’s gold today. i was just listening to the bake sale for the first time in a while yesterday, and now chuck and mikey are back with a new mixtape, gone fishing. you can catch it at the fool’s gold blog, but props to fader freeload too. also have a look at my interview/show review from last year.
more fool’s gold madness comes in the shape of a kid sister/treasure fingers reworking of the CLASSIC jungle brothers jam i’ll house you. the first time i came across this track was actually the hitmen remix back in ’98. at this stage it’s kind of hard for me to separate the two because the remix is the one i know best, with its massive falling down the stairs break, but i really love the optimo cowbells that perforate the original. and whatever happened to hitmen? according to discogs, nothing…
Jungle Brothers – I’ll House You ’98 (Hitmen Radio Edit)
Kid Sister – I’ll House You (Reebok Classic ’09)
