The electronic/dance world is infatuated with the one and only GUCCI MANE, the rapper that has taken rap onto a level of absurd that has not been seen before in the mainstream world. He embodies all that is “swag” and “I don’t give a fuck” in the rap world. The Brits decided to take on his swagitutde by re-working Gucci’s party jams into swagtastic UK club tracks. Download the mixtape compiled by Sinden here. Listen to some of my fav cuts below, I am definitely surprised to see These New Puritans on this comp. BURRRR

These New Puritans – Navigate, Navigate (The Loving Hand Remix)

Hedi Slimane designed Daft Punk’s costumes, is approved by Kanye, approves the Cazals, and now approves These New Puritans. I think Hedi Slimane is on to something.

The epic “Navigate, Navigate” highlights the artistic ambition and raw talent of the young band whose rich and disparate influences range from the sound of early 80’s industrial music to numerology, from This Heat to Dubsteb, and from J. Dilla to the films of David Lynch. The track begins with an unassuming sound collage of ambient electronics and feedback drones, which quickly fade out to make way for an urgent drum beat accompanied by brash guitar stabs and Jack’s dislocated vocal musings. Over the course of 15 minutes the track is an ever-mutating blur of layered vocal chants, taut rhythms and subtle details. A track of such stature had to be given an entire side on this, the band’s debut North American 12” release.

On the flip side is a club ready remix by Tim Goldsworthy under The Loving Hand moniker. Tim Goldworthy is part of the heralded DFA production team who have worked with and remixed artists such as The Rapture, LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip and more.

These New Puritans

I was listening to the Klaxons Radio 1 takeover last night and I really liked the track they played by These New Puritans, a fellow English band that is on their old label Angular Records. They even opened for the Klaxons on a past UK tour. Their music is likened to The Fall because of the very Mark E. Smith vocals but I’m sure singer, Jack Barnett does not beat his wife. Jack’s brother George use to be a model for Dior Homme and These New Puritans were commissioned by Dior to make a soundtrack for their recent runway show. A lot of their music reminds me of Blonde Redhead, circa In An Expression of the Inexpressible. Beat Pyramid comes out Jan 28 on Angular Records/Domino Records, and I really hope they tour the US soon.

Here is the track Klaxons spun on Radio1:
