Discovery: Kyle Hall remixes the Dirtbombs’ revamping of Carl Craig
The Dirtbombs, one of the greatest live rock & roll bands you’ve never seen — all right, some of you have — have gone techno. This can’t be good.
Actually, it’s quite good. The Detroit veterans’ new album Party Store pays homage to the influential Detroit techno scene, covering tracks by the likes of Derrick May, Carl Craig and Cybotron, and giving them all a furious, garage rock kick, while retaining all the dense dance-floor thump and shine.
It’s fitting then that a few of the Dirtbombs’ revisions of these classic tracks have been further revised and remixed by Kyle Hall, Ectomorph and Omar S. Grab the frenetic Kyle Hall remix of “Bug in the Bassbin,” originally by Carl Craig’s Innerzone Orchestra — while the grabbing’s good.
