SKIP INTRO feat. HOVATRON (14-03-09 @ Club8)

As I mentioned earlier the next edition of SKIP INTRO will be held on the 14th of march at Club 8, Amsterdam! We are very proud to have both Monteal's HOVATRON as well as our Utrecht based homeboys BOEMKLATSCH as guests. See you all there!

To get a taste, or find out we all have horrible taste in music and decide not to show up, some old(er) mixtapes that are still online:

Kotchy - She Made It Easy Remix EP

SKIP INTRO's very own O.Boogie & Ebokai's remix of Kotchy's 'She Made It Easy' somehow got picked for the remix EP, soon to be released on Civil Music / Seclusiasis. Make sure you cop that!

She Made It Easy Remix EP
Civil Music / Seclusiasis
Digital Release Date: March 2nd 2009

Track listing:
1. She Made It Easy (The Plain Ensemble Remix)
2. She Made It Easy (Son of Kick Remix)
3. She Made It Easy (Pacheko Remix)
4. She Made It Easy (O.Boogie & Ebokai Remix)
5. She Made It Easy (DJ Degree Remix)

Kotchy's the "Anti-Pharrell" and one to watch according to NME's RADAR SECTION, amongst others. After debuting last year with a 7” single (“She Made It Easy”) and 12” EP (“Sing What You Want”), press, radio and blogs worldwide have been buzzing! Recently, links to his “Le Passion, Yo!” EP with Yo Majesty's Shunda K are creating a stir, and the streets are excitedly anticipating his forthcoming “I'd Have to Be High” EP and debut album "89."

Here we have the latest Kotchy release, a digital only installment of remixes from up and coming producers; compiled via a Remix Competition that Seclusiasis/Civil held in conjunction with the highly influential blog – Palms Out Sounds. Palms Out is where the likes of Diplo, XXXchange, Drop The Lime and many others have made their remixes international concerns.

100s of submissions, from big producer’s secret monikers through to the best bedroom masters, have been whittled down to just 5 standout remixes!

First off we have the secretive The Plain Ensemble with killer production on his Aphex Twin/Windowlicker/Acid esq interpretation, which then leads into West Coast style grooves on the 2nd track, from French Londoner Son Of Kick (picture Luniz “I Got 5 On It” re-wired by Crookers). Venezuela’s Pacheko has released tracks on the influential Lo Dubs label, is fellow countryman Cardopusher's right hand man, and one to watch in 09 according to Xlr8r and Fact Magazine. He brings a dubstep style on Kotchy's slick beats. O.Boogie & Ebokai take dub rhythms and partner them with the whispered vocals for this deep n’ heady cut. Finally we have Canada's DJ Degree, who takes Kotchy’s breathy vocal workout and twists it up on a Bmore/electro tip that’s got club banger written all over it.
