MSTRKRFT - The Looks

Techno Tuesday brings to the spotlight another lesser known electronic band. MSTRKRFT has been putting out fat, funky beats for nearly half a decade now, and not many people would recognize them. While they've only released two studio albums (this being their first) they have created many, MANY remixes of popular music. A small sampling of those include: Love in this Club by Usher, Zero by Yeah Yeah Yeahs and John Legend's Green Light. I absolutely love their beats and the mixing work they do over the top of them. It's crazy to think that so many of the better dance groups have come from Canada. These guys being from the Toronto area, there must be a happening night life up there for my northern neighbors. Anyway, I think if you're an electronic nut like me, you'll really dig these guys. They're not making more commercial type stuff like the more commonly heard groups, but it still knocks your socks off and makes you want to move. I know someone who went to a concert of theirs a while back, and said it was awesome. That makes perfect sense because the way the music is laid out, it would seem you could have some pretty amazing effects going on as a compliment. Check 'em out B Side!
