Chromeo remixes aplenty
Angela BoatwrightI don’t really know how things work in the dance/electronic music worlds, but when Fool’s Gold Records elected to celebrate the fact that their fellow Montrealers Chromeo were going to be playing the B-Live stage at this past Summer’s Pemberton Festival up in the Rocky Mountains with a set of remixes by their artists, who am I to argue? Maybe remixes are like high-fives or fist-bumps for the DJ set. Or maybe their mom (Fool’s Gold founder A-Trak and Chromeo’s Dave 1 are brothers… in the literal sense) insisted they play nice together.
And so it is that I’m able to offer you three remixes of “100%”, the final track from Chromeo’s 2007 album Fancy Footwork, by Treasure Fingers, Trackademicks and Nacho Lovers. “100%” showed off the duo’s sexy, seductive flipside to their goofier, good-time persona.
