Track of the day 8/28

Grandtheft is a Producer/DJ based out of Montreal, Canada and is one half of the Team Canada DJs duo. Known well for their live party-rocking and their acclaimed remix CD series "Classic Material", GT and Team Canada DJs have rocked a bunch of the best clubs worldwide. A prolific remixer, GrandTheft has announced many upcoming releases.
One of my new favorites. A quality remix, in my opinion, is one that stays close enough to the original to maintain familiarity with the track but is original enough to give it some novelty.GrandTheft did an amazing job adding a low bass line to the track to give it a heavier feel (something lacking from many of Chromeo's songs). I was extremely pleased to find the lyrics unchanged. It's always a great feeling to listen to one of your favorite tracks presented in a new way. Another top quality remix is the Laidback Luke remix. This is just an awesome song no matter which way you look at it. It's got great lyrics and I freaking LOVE the little bassline wobble from 0:15 to 1:14. It's just enough to get you all warmed up for the bass drop at 1:15. In my not so humble opinion, this remix mops the floor with the original. No offense, Chromeo.

So have a listen. You'll thank me later.

P.S. Thank Step Up 3D for making this song "that song from the new Step Up movie!"
