I often run into the misfortune of hearing a great song, and then hearing a remix of it that’s absolutely horrid. I’m not going to name any names, because that’s not what I’m about (tonight).
This is not one of those situations. The PAM sporting kids Klaxons‘ “As Above, So Below” turned out to be one of my favorite tracks from their album Myths of the Near Future and I was insanely pumped when I found out one of the TUFTSMANIA OGs, Justice, was working on a remix of Klaxons. I wondered what it would be for a long time, but I eventually forgot about it. About a month ago, it dropped somewhat quietly in the blog scene, and I was too busy [with school] to write about it.
Let me tell you now, this is one of my tracks of 2007. Klaxons and Justice, word to your mom?
you may recognize the justice track from my halloween party set last week.
here’s the original
Klaxons – As Above, So Below
Make sure you check out my homie Disaster over at missingtoof who notes the influence of the oldschool doobie brothers in the justice version.
Throwbacks to classic oldies artists are starting to become a staple in Justice’s sound, and I’m down!
