It's not often that we come across a release that is as powerful as it is – let's say – concentrated. This new split EP out on DFA includes one new track by each of two of my favorite artists, The Juan Maclean and Sh*t Robot. It is as if both producers individually worked their aesthetic to their maximum potential and distilled everything into two songs that are an equality brilliant representation of their unique sound. The release is so great that I couldn't help but recommend both tracks.
Sh*t Robot feat. Reggie Watts: 'We Got A Love'
Sh*t Robot, the Irish producer responsible for one of this year's summer hits, 'Feels Real,') graces the dancefloor once again with 'We Got A Love,' a track full of energy, an anxious piano riff, uplifting falsetto vocals by Reggie Watts and a pumping bass.
The Juan Maclean: 'Feel Like Movin'
On side B, the acclaimed NYC producer The Juan Maclean crafts a song that has all elements to become a dance anthem. I am obsessed with the ever-amazing vocals by Nancy Whang (ex-LCD Soundsystem), the soulful deconstructed vocal samples and the coordinated combo of keys and bass which seem to complement one another to multiply their power.
