UPDATE: thanks Jason for calling me out on the broken links, they’re fixed.
Ok, so I know, vacation means no computers, no work blah blah. Well, fuck vacation.
I got a message earlier this morning and boy was I excited. I’ve been in contact with the Buffet Libre guys for about a year now and they’ve been putting out awesome mixtapes, collaborations, parties, nonstop. I first heard about their latest project about 4 or 5 months ago. At that time the Rewind Project was merely in the planning stages with no actual evidence of existence… but now it’s all coming together.
July 15 marks the release of their first part of two in a series called “REWIND”. It’s an 80’s music cover project put on by Buffet Libre who enlisted the help of the blog world’s favorite electronic producers to re-make their favorite 80’s tunes.
Part one includes covers and remixes by: Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Dragonette, Moulinex, Xinobi,Overthrill, Cryptonites, Frankmusik, Sidechains, RAC feat Karl Kling, !Trash Yourself, South Central, Culture Prophet, Vitaminsforyou, Lismore, The Cloud Room, Mr Miyagi, Purple Crush, Levy, Electric Soft Parade, The Paper Scissors, Pomomofo, Saint Bernadette, Hello Tokyo, Cloetta Paris, Friday Bridge, ER2, Mark Mallman, Lucknow Pact, The Social Services, Band In A Box, We Are Soldiers We Have Guns, The Amplid, Oh Snap!, Fil Ok, Per QX, 3 is A Crowd, Mono4, Malk, Emotiquon, Julian Nation, Heartache, Hidden Cat, The Missiles, Database, CSK OK, Joe And Will Ask?, Cannonball Jane, The Fatels, Ruby Isle, PYT, Louis La Roche, TempestDisco, GlitchBitch, Keenhouse, Royal Rumble, Daroc, Adventure Kid.
Will you just look at that INSANE AS FUCK list of artists? This is like, a compilation of TUFTSMANIA BFFs. Also remember, this is just part 1.
I’m not going to link every single artist right now, after all, I’m on vacation. The Goog is your best friend.
To whet your appetite for the impending 80’s explosion, here’s a track from part 1. (believe me, both parts 1 and 2 are going to make you shit your shit)
Part 1, July 15
