Music: Hercules & Love Affair Remixes are Divine!

In addition to being the mastermind of the Hercules & Love Affair project, Andy Buttler is a pretty amazing remixer. We recently got a hold of his remix for "Situation" from legendary 80's band Yazoo. The remix basically takes the new wave out and injects it with some jackin' house steroids to make this the Barry Bonds of remixes. The result is unbelievable... This is probably not the first house remix of Situation, but how can you say no to this one? This one is for the hall of fame unlike the Giants Juicer.

The second remix we got for you is a little bit more on the Cosmic Disco side of things but definitely something our friends at the Akult Discotheque would appreciate. This remix of Baby Talk's "Chance" is pretty outstanding as you can hear all the production values that DFA is notorious for...

Ultimately the third remix is my favorite. Aeroplane's "Whispers" is more straight forward, but I love the vocals by Kathy Diamond and that repeating "never again" chorus that sounds like he couldn't program his sampler so he just sung it. Sounds a little like gibberish but i love it!

So there you have it...the living proof that Hercules & Love Affair are the hottest thing on earth and DFA probably the most trusted label out there.
