PREVIEW THE DJ: Ratatat’s MySpace
LISTEN: “We Share Our Mother’s Health” By The Knife (Ratatat Mix)
This one is a bit stale, I must be honest, but I couldn’t ignore it any longer. It’s not a heavy club jam nor is it an over-produced mash-up, it’s just The Knife with some smooth bass rhythm and some classic Ratatat electronic guitar loops, and it’s more than enough. It’s more of a stomp-your-boot-kind-of-jam than a bump-your-hips-kind-of-jam, granted. Remixes can be subtle and not overly synthed-out crashers like what Steve Aoki is amazing at. It’s not like you can’t dance to it, because it’s still Ratatat for crying out loud. Show some respect, people. It’s just really well-produced and I tip my hat.
