HOW GOOD IS THIS!!!??? – NUMBER 25

THE REMIXES – PART 4 – THE GOLDEN FILTER

As we look fondly back to the previous three editions of The Recommender’s Remix specials, which included Bloc Party, Soulwax and Discotech,we realise that it takes a box rammed full of quality chop-ups to attend this party. This time is no different and so we welcome you to The Golden Filter edition.

This Disco-Electro pair are a very mysterious group that have arrived on the blog’s scene with as much of a thump as Mohammed Ali with a run up. Although they’ve toured parts of the world, including supporting The Presets on their American tour, showcasing their magic throughout the last year or so, Golden Filter keep their identity well and truly out of the spotlight.

We caught up with them after a performance in our local city of Brighton a few months back and the passion for their music was what they wanted to stand proud. And boy did it tower. They have a distinctive and addictive beat and a love of all things Synth. Having produced a couple of instant self-penned disco classics, they started to put their hands to other peoples tunes.

The remix work that they produced only proved to further show up their true musical ability. They not only pick a wide range of tunes to put in the blender, but also bring a freshness to them, whilst still allowing the listener to pick out that it’s Golden Filter from a mile off. Cue the thumping, the pounding 4-beat and a twinkle of their gorgeously infectious, styled keys.

They recently informed us that following this batch of remixes they are now finally taking time away from them to re-focus on their own material, so here is their full remix selection in all its glory. It looks like this may be it for a while now so enjoy…

The 5th edition of ‘The Remixes’ has already been decided, so it will be posted up in due course. We’ve heard they are currently writing yet another one, so we think it best that we await that addition before we post about them. In true Golden Filter style we will keep it secret for now. Consider it yet another reason for you to keep one eye (or should that be ear?) on The Recommender…
