Music and other modern musings

DFA 1979

I must admit, I never really recognized the high-level cool factor of Toronto’s dance-punk duo, Death from Above 1979, until relatively recently. In fact, it wasn’t until I heard the myriad of remixes pumped out in the last 3 years following Jesse and Sebastien’s blog-announced break-up that I recognized the versatility and scope of their sound. And, while I am riding the honesty bus, I should admit that it wasn’t until Jesse formed MSTRKFT with DFA 1979 producer, Alex Puodziukas or Al-P, that I really took a liking to them and the novel influence they held. Still, I am not a huge DFA fan. I do love Black History Month and Romantic Rights. And I especially love what French electro duo, Alan Braxe and Fred Falke have done to BHM.

What can I say? I am a sucker for remixes.
