The Twelves - Works For Me (So Gold Remix)

"Brazil's answer to Daft Punk.." are what they're being called by BBC Radio 1's Pete Tong since wrapping up a banging ass Essential Mix last week for them!

The Twelves have been making noise since 2005 with their signature heavy synth sound and flawless remixes and originally produced material. The track "Works For Me" was released as a demo along with "When You Talk" last year that gained them even more recognition. So, with all that said, here is So Gold's rendition of their tune. As always, free for download and ready for the dancefloor!

Enjoy and Happy New Year!

Let's go 2010!!

I don't know if all you Hypbeasts know about this shit yet bur APC just came out with a Toxic Cleanser. Its for fading your jeans faster....or..... If you pour a shit ton of it into a vat and get pushed into it. It'll turn you into the TOXIC DENIM AVENGER. Breaking in and fading Sanforized Denim with a single touch...only works if you're a nerd though. WVN Crew you are ALL guilty. This post is lame. Fuck you guys.

Sunday Afternoon Soundtracks.

Picked out a little psychedelic something for today's soundtrack. The track is by The Electric Prunes and titled "General Confessional" from their album Release Of An Oath. It's been sampled by numerous hip-hop groups - check the raw drums around 2:13 - ooh they are nice.
