Santigold – The Keepers (The Knocks Remix)

Playing at Juanillo Beach in Dominican Republic

My boys Mr. J-Patt and B-Roc of The Knocks take this one out of the park. Fresh out of the oven they bring us their rendition of my favourite track out of Santigold’s album Master of My Make-Believe.

The song is not quick to the trigger and leaves a couple of surprises further into it. It’s an electro-infused spatial disco remix (with a hint of dubstep?). The synth work on the bridge makes you want to release yourself, and then, just then, it builds up to a drop that is sure going to make the crowd go wild.

For DJs it’s a perfect track to take the set to the next level. For the savvy consumer that includes this in their weekend playlist, it’s a gem — it’ll make the guests jump and talk about it all night.

Without further ado, I give you The Knocks treatment on The Keepers.

[Image Caption]: Although you can’t appreciate it, Broc and Jpatt performed in the picture above shoe-less. I witnessed this. They were so happy that day that they slammed one of the drums so hard that they broke it. It took place (I was gonna say last summer, but in my home island of Dominican Republic it’s Summertime all the time) last Christmas on the virgin beach of Juanillo Bay.
