Pink Skull/Drugs Will Keep Us

 

Philadelphias Pink Skull serve up an off-kilter tech house banger, "Drugs Will Keep Us Together" that combines left field sensibilities with more progressive elements freaked out breakdowns, mind-bottling (like your head is trapped in a bottle!) stutters, and a blissed-out hands-in-the-air reprise

On remix duties is none other than Mr Trevor Loveys who youll know for the club battering Organ Grinder on Dubsided and a slew of superb remixes alongside Herv as Speakerjunk. His eight minute plus remix takes a tweaked break beat approach that jacks, twitches and switches in all the right places quality! The second remix comes courtesy of NYC darlings 33Hz alongside Ming (of Ming + FS fame). Supersaw synths and stuttering basslines give this one a ravey electro-house feel perfect for the big rooms. So, a superb original and two cracking remixes, use them well people!"

"Hugely promising debut release from this little Brooklyn-based label. Philly's Pink Skull operate somewhere between electro, disco and house....not unlike the DFA's best, most recent output....all three (mixes) would make a formidable part of any dancefloor arsenal." 4 out of 5 - iDJ Magazine

Toro Y Moi/Left Alone

 

Left Alone At Night is a pop chestnut of sliced up beats, live instrumentation and vocals, looped and layered into a swerving, heady dance gem that showcases Toro y Moi's dreamy sound and melodic ingenuity.
Backing up the original are club shattering remixes from Trouble and Bass Crew's Drop The Lime, Philadelphia remix royalty, Pink Skull, and Kinjo's Dave Allison.

XLR8R Artist of The Year, Drop The Lime, offers an urgent and stammering take with a bassline more wobbly than a supermarket shopping cart, while Pink Skull lays it on the line with a futuristic drug-disco mix of genre hopping house craziness. Montreal's Dave Allison strips down to the tech basics and provides an absolutely beautiful house rerub. Bonus tracks on the digital release are from Leeds UK's Afro Digi Scratch with some big-room electro action and London's Tom Lown with a funky and upbeat mix. Pink Skull slows it down with an eight minute dark extended dub, rounding out an impressive four track 12.

"The second release on NYC's Savant Guard label points to a bright future, as Toro y Moi's 'Left Alone At Night' gets a slew of top remixes. Dave Allison is on house duty, Drop The Lime adds a bass re-rub and Pink Skull chucks in a package-topping mix for good measure." 4 out of 5 - DJ Magazine
