Video: Hot City's "Twist"



For Hot City's bouncing club tune "Twist," the duo had a simple video done up by director Paddy Power that's just as colorful and animated as the song itself. The featured vocalist, MC DT, gets most of the screen time, but shares a bit with the Hot City boys (looking cool in sunglasses as they push buttons) and a couple of nameless ladies (looking good in bright lipstick as they gyrate around).

Download: Bassanovva "Chicken Lover (Hackman Remix)"

First Listen
Label: Grizzly

Who doesn't love chicken? Well, maybe vegetarians, but make no mistake, the newest signee to Sinden's Grizzly label, Bassanovva, certainly does. Enough to include lines like "I love chicken," "Who likes chicken?" and "Where's the chicken?" into the title track of its upcoming release. Bassanovva, made up of Thunderheist's Grahmzilla and Brooklyn's Jubilee, get the remix treatment from the UK's Hackman who takes "Chicken Lover" to its full funky tropical house potential, while keeping the phrase "I Love Chicken" and the song's occasional pitch-shifted whistle blows intact.

Download: Underworld "Always Loved a Film (Christian Martin Remix)"

First Listen
Label: Om

The UK's Underworld (pictured above) has been making music for a long time now (since 1988 to be precise), and it is a testament to their talent that they have continued to sound current and innovative for so long, which makes it no easy job to remix one of their tracks. Not to worry, San Francisco's Christian Martin has not taken the task lightly. The Dirtybird affiliate takes the original from Underworld's newest LP, Barking, and turns the house knob up to 11, dubbing out the vocals, throwing in some tasty percussion, and featuring an infectiously gurgling bassline. For those in California who need more than a remix to satisfy their Underworld fix, the duo will be making its way around this weekend, check the dates after the jump.  Read more »
