Chromeo tour, Bloc Party remix Needy Girl

Chromeo - 40 minute Mix: A tight sleazy/cheezy/80's electro funk mix detailing Chromeo's true roots. I don't know what the tracklisting is on this mix, but I do know there's some heavy flow on the octagon drums throughout. If you like what you hear, chromeo is once again on tour (not really they're just playing Vancouver. HA!), check the date:

Vancouver, BC, @ Celebrities


in the mean time...
Chromeo - Needy Girl (Bloc Party remix): If Needy Girl wasn't hot enough, Russell Lissack of the Bloc Party reassembled a nice throwback to New Order's Blue Monday, along with added rythm guitar, synths and a more rock oriented bassline. I kinda wished the guitar riff at the end of the first chorus would have carried on through the song, or a least came back for seconds, but whatever. The big sweeping synths at the end keep things moving and this is certainly a refreshing visit to one of my favorite songs.
