Man do I feel behind the 8-ball. In listening to the recent remixes by Beni and Bit Funk of the latest single from new rock/electro rockers Jump Jump Dance Dance, it's apparent that the release of their album is going to be one of those moments that a lot of people are talking about.
Jump Jump Dance Dance (JJDD) is comprised of Chris Carter and Simon Lewicki, two Aussies currently residing in Los Angeles and although only new as a pairing, between them they have already amassed a wealth of experience – Carter as an in-demand DJ and vocalist and Simon as the mastermind behind the celebrated US Billboard #1 Club act Chili Hi Fly plus multi-ARIA nominated Groove Terminator and Tonite Only. I really really like their music, and you will as well. As discussed in their press release, the pair isn't happy with merely an album, but are already geared up for a slew of remixes as well as a live show set to combine equal and perfectly balanced amounts of rock and live synth work amongst other things. I'm hoping that perhaps they'll make it to field day. That would be dope.
While I can't offer you the 320 of Modern Eyes, their latest single (it's available for buying now so look for it!), peep the video, and below are the equally amazing remixes by none other than Beni and BitFunk. BitFunk, much like U-Tern is a Canadian disco hero. The fact he now lives in Chi City shouldn't put you off. There's clearly some good things going down North of the Border, and it's my intention to bring that to you soon.
