There's a couple minutes before I must jump into my automobile and head off to work, so let's squeeze in this post. Soulwax Remix of Chemical Brothers' "Hey Boy, Hey Girl" was released today. To be fair, I was an original fan of the Chemical Brothers. "Block Rockin' Beats" was a compulsory listen, while "Hey Boy, Hey Girl" had a video that jolted my former Catholic upbringing. What could possibly be the first video I downloaded illegally, long before Napster, and decades before any sign of Youtube? It was "Hey Boy Hey Girl;" the ugly school girl turns into a bombshell fox and stars fucking in a club, plus the dancing skeletons. The British must be high all the time: that's no compliment. This remix is "ok." It's nowhere near on par with Gravity's Rainbow. The question that remains is: Where's the MGMT - Kids remix? One of the brothers from Soulwax, Dave, said the few copies a couple of DJs have are only demos, and no official release date has been set. In the meantime, give this tune a whirl.
