without a doubt, the twelves from brazil are one of the best production duos to emerge from the blogs, constantly improving and blowing up ever since their first remixes were passed around about one year ago. i have been trying to get ahold of some unreleased material of them for ages, probably even annoyed them with my regular messages on myspace but finally, today is the day where they sent a mail with some great new sounds my way and i am glad i can finally scratch them off my 'too cool for discodust' list.
previously the twelves were only known from their unsigned remixes for kylie minogue and yelle which were soon followed by official remixes for the likes of black kids, theatre of disco and zeigeist.
we are proud to premiere two original tracks by the twelves that they have been sending out to a few labels already and got pretty good feedback for. the vocals are all home-recorded so these versions might not be final, in case they are actually getting a release. i wouldn't know why not though, as both 'works for me' and 'when you talk' sound like excellent mixtures of vintage synth-fueled french house and really catchy and driving electro-influenced indie pop.
if i'd run a label i would tell them immediately not to send it out to anyone any more and take my turn to get rich but obviously those a&r's out there are sleeping again. enough talk, download and enjoy two songs by the twelves that are probably going to be my favorites for this weekend:
the twelves - when you talk
the twelves - works for me
now show the twelves all your myspace love, in order to let them know discodust readers have taste and are really passionate about music (cough), so that the twelves will be more than glad to hook us up with even more of their tracks in the future!
