There is a ton of shit that I FEEL like I’ve written about, but judging by activity of this website, I obviously haven’t. Time to play the “What’s TUFTSMANIA been listening to over the past year game“!
These Brazilian gangsters known as The Twelves have been putting their disco-keyboard touch onto to tracks around the world like a really good sounding case of HSV. They also do absolutely fuego-breathing original productions, some of which you will listen to in short time.
Here are two originals that are definitely ★★★★★ in my iTunes library. (sidebar: Do you use the star rating feature? do you use half stars?)
Keyboards (very many), hand claps (very many), synthy disco drums (very many) and tambourines (very many). All these create a monster that vomits, shits, pisses glorious sounds.
And most recently, here’s a remix of The Brighton Port Authority, which gives you a good example of what The Twelves can do with their remixes (and how awesome they sound).
The original song featuring Iggy Pop is pretty amazing, but it is far from fit for use (ha haaa! I made electro pun!. RIP) in da clubbzzz. It sounds like the 12s dudes pretty much created their own score for the vocal track on this piece. This is one of the few (if not only) very welcome Iggy Pop remakes.
UPDATE: SORRY EVERYONE, apparently the original upload of this track was corrupt and only played 40seconds. It’s fixed now, I love you all please re-download this and play it forever.
Make sure you cruise to their myspace and download the mixtapes, both episodes. (STELLAR). seriously.
hit the jump to see supplemental videos of them playing their originals with electronic instruments.
PPPS: the only thing I watch on the internet is Mr. Chi-City3. (whoop, take notes)
