The endearingly insane pair of Phra and Bot are back once again. This time offering up a new Ep and a free download of a live set they performed at I Love Techno this past weekend.
Hummus, referencing the delicious dip that goes ever so well with sliced carrots or celery, is said to be….
“An unusualk tribute to the best beach bangers in the history of music…Imagine “Show Me Love” if Robin S were schizo”
The release features 5 remixes, including Donovan, The Slow Waves, Botnek, Astronomar, and Hybrid Theory plus a free download from Maribou State. All in all a pretty darn good offering. The Ep features enough diversity to keep most people happy. Highlight for me is no doubt The Slow Waves mix, which is everything a remix should be. The mood of the track is completely distorted and taken in a much slower more chilled direction, whilst creating an ambience lacking in the original.
Crookers also layed down a monsterous set at I Love Techno over the weekend. Having just about finished listening to the whole 2 hours I can safely draw breath and sit back down because this was an absolute killer cycle. A perfectly fused mix of hip hop and house, with interludes being made for Forget About Dre and some stinky Daft Punk on the fly mixing. Check the stream below.
