The Twelves - Kitsuné Tabloid

Following instalments from Phoenix and Digitalism, this third compilation from the Kitsuné Tabloid label sees Brazilian duo The Twelves offering two mixes: a set of exclusive dubs of their key remixes, plus an eclectic mix of influences and favourites. Both mixes share a similar carefree spirit, fusing electro, synth pop, disco and Output/DFA-style dance-punk. Highlights on the first disc include the Twelves' shimmering electro workout of Zeigeist’s ‘Humanitarianism’ and the synthetic groove of French Horn Rebellion Vs Database.

The second mix keeps the party going, joining the dots between modern pioneers and forgotten gems. Hence French house maestros Alan Braxe & Fred Falke and Twin Shadow’s balmy rock rubs shoulders with Blockhead Chaz Jankel’s ‘Without You’, a 1983 electro-funk rarity that may have invented the Scissor Sisters; and the frothy 70s Eurodisco of Tommy Seebach’s ‘Bubble Sex’, which resembles nothing so much as Hot
Butter’s ’Popcorn’ getting in a lather with Space’s ‘Magic Fly’.
