This just in, a TUFTSMANIA exclusive, new Neon Coyote remix!!
The Brooklyn duo John and Will make up Neon Coyote. With a recent spot on Indie 103.1’s “NEON NOISE” with D.A.N.C.E.P.A.R.T.Y., they’re on a hot streak and here’s what they have to say about their style.
“Neon Coyote is constantly trying to make every song and mix sound different from the last. I try and listen to songs and see if they could be portrayed in a different light like with the Eluvium or Mstrkft remix, but then sometimes its just fun to pump the shit out of a track like 9H20. So no matter what, we try to keep people on their toes.” – Will
“We got a dark side, a coke rap side, a mellow side, a dirty electro side, and a kodak moment side.
And we’re trying to do it all at the same time. We’re hard working. I just wanna see people freak their stuff when they’re listening to our tunes.” – John
I’ve been in contact with these guys for a minute now, and all the things I hear coming from their magic fingers has been showing improvement, attention to detail, and completely awesome-freak-out-bangyourhead music.
Now instead of a mixtape, here are some very well thought out BARELY remixes. I call them barely remixes because they only borrow elements from the originating tracks and don’t at all resemble the tone or mood of the original artist’s intent.
SO! In this 2 part series, the first that we’ll be releasing exclusively on TUFTSMANIA….
Coyote sounds, hand claps, awesome ‘duran duran’ tom rolls. (recipe for awesome)
I will admit, the first time playing this track, I was a little skeptical after hearing it was a remix of a MSTRKRFT track (who remixes MSTRKRFT???), but I was proven wrong and have been bouncing non stop. Also repeating this track all weekend and every time I listen, there’s always another element to discover. This shit is seriously so multi-layered! It’s like Girl Talk but with more finesse. You’ll definitely feel it deep within your loins when the rhythm breaks down in the 2nd half of the song.
Honestly, I really can’t get over how much I love the handclaps. They do me so well.
Thanks Neon Coyote, you gave me techno rabies.
!!!check back tomorrow for part 2 (get ready, you will freak)!!!
