CharlieWhy – ‘Singing Nina’ (mp3)
Yello – Bostich (Rio Lobotomy ‘Yello Fever’ Remix)
Charlie Why is a modest bastard. Apart from putting in time as the bassist for one of our fav bands Comic Sans, I actually know this dude personally from a few years back when we studied electronic music production together (clearly he’s doing a bit better than me). And yet I had to find out about this rad remix job by his new project, Rio Lobotomy, through Waves At Night (cheers, by the way – head over there to check out the rad video for the track).
Rio Lobotomy is Charlie + Adam Hunter of Wolfgang DJs and above is their take on a track from Swedish act Yello’s debut album. It’s got an insanely pulsing bottom end to it and a lot of cool shit going on above it – but seriously, with decent speakers/headphones you’re most likely to remember those throbbing, side-chained beats.
Also above is one of CharlieWhy’s older solo tracks, which is a bit more of an electro number. Like a lot of good electronic music, its feels like he’s brought a punk attitude to the process rather than a refined, technical one. It’s also definitely worth checking out.
