THE TWELVES

If you have been out to a digitalove in the last 6 months then you might recognize almost all of these tracks. the twelves, based out of rio de janeiro brazil, make great live remixes of smart indie electro from all over the world. first blowing up in the blog world with there remix of boyz for M.I.A., the twelves found themselves being commissioned by numerous up-in-coming bands including the black kids and new young pony club. they have great design and wonderfully fresh and dancey mixes. i think you will enjoy.....

my favorite
black kids - i'm not going to teach your boyfriend how to dance (twelves remix) - mp3

the classic
i didn't really like the original at all, but this is awesome
M.I.A. - Boyz

more....
New Young Pony Club - Get Lucky (Twelves Remix)

The Twelves are sweet, dude! They remind me of the Atomic Babies out of Brooklyn (back when they were a duo, of course) that would rock smaller venues in the east village and soho with a similar kit: 2 slave synths, a sampler, 2 macs and a PA. And they would slam!!!!

Definitely check out any of their works. ;-)
