Here's a track by track blow by blow written by Chromeo:
1. Me & My Man Whitey Remix
Everyone's favorite. Nuff said.
2. Needy Girl Bloc Party Remix
Russell finessed this one. You got the Blue Monday drums, a gritty bassline, and it's all topped off by a feel-good chord change at the end. We still owe those guys a remix.
3. You're So Gangsta Playgroup Remix
This one is special. Our first ever remix, courtesy of England's Larry David: Trevor Jackson. The music sounds like slowed down hip house, mixed with Gwen Guthrie's "Nothing Going On But The Rent". Bonanas. The vocal you hear is the full lyrics that were initially recorded, before we decided to just keep one line when the album came out two years later. We threw this one on in Turkey a couple of months ago and the crowd still went nuts.
4. Rage! Stretch Armstrong Remix
Ayo Stretch, what happened to Queensbridge? What's up with Tragedy Khadafi? Where's CNN, dunny? Is that really a fauxhawk?
1. Me & My Man Juan McLean Remix
The drum sounds on this are crazy. We can imagine cool people dancing to this, something which we've never seen because we stay at home listening to Gerard Levert "Casanova" all day.
2. Needy Girl Paper Faces Remix
Our manager Gil is responible for this one. He put it out on a single in the UK and it probably sold more over there than our album. And while we're on the topic of Paper Faces, let's give it up to the Rythmes Digitales album for starting this whole 80s shit.
3. Destination: Overdrive DFA Remix
Not exactly what we were expecting from those guys. Then we saw hundreds of chavs transing out to this when Optimo was playing it at V Festival, and we were like "ok, we get it".
4. Rage! Riton Remix
