for some reason i have never given 80kidz a fair chance before. maybe because their name reminds me of one of the worst places on the internet or because i think writing words with 'z' instead of 's' is quite uncool in general, but that's probably why some people tend to think i am a superficial, arrogant elitist bastard. anyway, the 'kidz' are from japan and have already scored official remixes for autokratz and the raveonettes, so i had a feeling that i've got to check them out once more!
they hooked me up with the title track of their current ep 'life begins at eighty' (all details on their myspace) and although i wanted to keep the distortion amount low on discodust lately, i can't resist this time. sure, this is heavily inspired by justice, mstrkrft and you know all their names anyway. but this track is just so banging, uplifting, funky and musical all at once that i had to post it. and even if it's just for old times' sake - i don't see why i shouldn't like this just because they came a bit late to the game - at least they are not releasing a track called 'summertime' although it's already freezing cold out there, right? play this fucking loud!
80kidz - life begins at eighty
keep an eye on 80kidz and i've got a feeling there's a lot more good music on the rise in japan.
