Do you guys ever miss 2008? Things were simpler back then. The DFA-dominated electro scene swung to a funky new-wave kitsch, and everyone knew how to dance to it. Now EDM grinds on this entirely un-ironic agro-wobble, and I don’t know what to do with my booty let alone my head, but standing still seems like the best way to avoid whiplash.
Well, thank goodness for this new track from LA DJ duo Classixx. You could tuck this guy in between CSS and LCD Soundsystem on your old iPOD playlist and no one would know the difference. It’s got all the elements a classic banger needs: a perfectly square fart bass, shimmery poly-stabs, funky gurgles, plus the usual claps, bells and whistles, all bouncing along at a non-threatening pace. Vocals delivered in the style of “this is how I talk and I’m cute” from LCD’s own Nancy Whang wrap the whole thing in a brilliant bow of happy-go-apathy.
Get down, it’s Tuesday!
