M.I.A. – Boys (The Twelves Remix)

First of all, this remix is amazing. Now that we’ve addressed that let’s go to the post… While everyone was at the Jay-Z concert on Friday I chose to go seek out some business and catch The Twelves DJ set at NYC’s Webster Hall. I got to the event pretty early so by the time the Brazilian duo started rocking I was a bit tired but my what good music can do for your energy.

In short, The Twelves aren’t the most technical of DJ’s; you won’t get much scratching, looping or cutting from their set, but what you will get is impeccable taste, great song selection and seamless execution.  As many of you know, one of the most exiting things about these guys is their knack for unique dance remixes and their set on Friday had some cool ones I’d yet to hear.  The best part of the show was in fact the remixes, their production decisions and style are nearly unmatched in the remix game, it’s very impressive.  So without further ado, I bring you a special treat today, The Twelves first official mixtape – 30 Minutes of Twelves. After this tape they’ve released another called Episode II, which I also have but will save for part 2 of this post. In the meantime make your Monday a good one and put this on at work, you won’t regret it. To be continued…
