Friends of Friends (FoF) is new record label that has taken a different approach in releasing music. Essentially what FoF does is ask an artist to do some songs for an album, but instead of just 1 artist, the chosen artist must choose a friend to work on the EP with them on top of commissioning a designer to create the EP’s artwork on a T-Shirt.
The inaugural release in the FoF series was with Cali electronic guru Daedulus and his fellow friend Jogger who together turned out 6 slamming tracks. After getting good reviews, FoF decided that the album needed proper remixes, and thus have released their 2nd disc Friends of Friends Remixed.
Nosaj Thing, Michna, Eliot Lipp, Mexicans with Guns, Grahm Zilla(of Thunderheist), Meanest Man Contest, and Keenhouse were the chosen remixers for this album, and all did an excellent job.
My favorite track was the disco infused remix of ‘Nice Tights’ by Keenhouse. The Track was just dripping in disco goodness and I couldn’t get enough. Like daedulus and his experimentation in electronic music, all the remixers have sort of stuck with that style.
The album will be released on July 28th 2009
