Unklejam Remixed by Lo-Fi-Fnk
I'd never heard of this UK Maroon 5 imprint, Unklejam (MySpace) until I got my hands on a rad remix of their song, "Stereo," by Lo-Fi-Fnk.
I'd say Unklejam is pretty unremarkable alone. They sound sort of like a watered down version of Scissor Sisters or a sarcastic rendition of the pop soul of certain bands today. I can't tell if these guys are serious or just screwing around, and that irritates me for some reason.
Anyway, the Lo-Fi-Fnk remix is great. Like a prog version of the original tune: meticulous and catchy yet sort of eerie and creepy synths lead the melody while a repetitious keyboard and thick bass line constructs the rhythm and drone sense of this track. It's good, although the vocals and remnants of the original song are completely washed out. Oh well ...
