What's In Your Pocket?

Every once in a while in remix land, a DJ outdoes himself. Ed Banger's DJ Medhi provided the interesting--to say the least--canvas for remixers to work called "Pocket Piano." I'm at a loss to place Medhi in Ed Banger's history. Not quite the hard-rock, mind-trip feel of Justice or Sebastien, part classical, part rap, just a little bit of everything; this song seems to line up accordingly with the Mickey Moonlight direction. Joakim's remix clocks in at just under 10 minutes making it the "Sinnerman" of the French-electronic genre. And with the pianos governing the track throughout, I don't feel the comparison is too far off. Wherever you decide to play this--in your earphones or at your next fondue party--don't pass it up. It's wonderful.
