Like some Disco with your Indie Rock? Well, you’re in luck Discotexas head honcho Mr. Mitsuhirato has whipped up this storming edit of current hype darlings Django Django’s Default. Editing the track how track should be edited, Mitsuhirato drags those hooks straight to the dancefloor.
It’s no mean feat to mix up Django’s surfy Indie with a Mediterranean Disco vibe, but Mitsuhirato pulls it off and delivers a whopping slab of rocking, floorfilling, mayhem. Our guess is that Mitsuhirato heard the track and though ‘hello, there’s some killer riffs in there, I’ll just have them please’, mixed them up with a little mew drums and bass and bob’s your uncle, how the track was always supposed to sound. Well, what else are you going to do with riffs like that?
Just what tasty treats do the Discotexas crew have in store for us this time? Why it’s Discotexas’ own Mr. Mitsuhirato reMixing the B-side from Xinobi ‘s single of earlier this year, Pirates. The track is Bronze, and Mr. Mitsuhirato gets hypnotically funky.
Mr. Mitsuhirato keeps it simple and slick for his take on the track, just building up a proper, irresistible, dancefloor groove. Adding layer after layer to the rolling Disco tune, he builds the track as it progresses, adding a new bass here, a warbling lead there, until the track is so deep in your brain there is no escape. Did we mention the track is a freebie too? Get lost in this one.
Remember Belgian outfit Montevideo’s Horses from back in February? A track that combined a New York Disco feel (no doubt helped by recording at DFA’s studio) with an Italo feel. The band are currently working on their new release, but in the meantime they, and Discotexas, are giving ways two new reMixes of Horses to tide us over until their second album drops.
First premièred on his last mixtape is Zimmer reMix. A burbling Disco tune that piles on the Cosmic elements and it’s fair share of cowbell. Pure Horizontal Disco, as Zimmer would term it, the track runs with bubbling analog bass and frantic percussion on a galactic trip that deserves an Animé video. The second reMix comes from Discotexas core trio of Moullinex, Xinobi & Mr. Mitsuhirato who kick of with a reverby 909 beat and proceed to fold an ‘90’s House vibe into a European Disco groove, the result is pretty unique and pretty captivating. Totally a track to get lost in.
