Music: Bounce Bounce Bounce!!!

MSTRKRFT started 3 years ago as a side project for Jesse F. Keeler from Death From Above 1979 at the time when making a remix for "signed" indie-rock bands was still kinda cool. Well...a lot has changed in those 3 years. Pioneers of that bleepy electro sound so loved by hipsters these days, their debut album "the looks" was filled with heavy synth lines and enough 4 to the floor madness to tear clubs apart. Well... Jesse F. Keeler and Al-P are back and this time they didn't come alone. Their new single "Bounce" features N.O.R.E (...of recent Reggaeton fame) and Isis from Thunderheist. Jokes apart, Noreaga kills it and kinda reminds Hip-House back? You bet your ass it is!!! With all the cross-pollination going on in Dance music this was bound to happen sooner than later. (I'll post more about this re-occurring phenomenon later because it's so worth talking about it). In any case, Bounce is out now (digitally) on Steve Aoki's Dim Mak label and was probably already played in Redfoxx's Set last night at Hearthrob.
