I figured this could be a regular feature... So here's 5 tracks I'm really into this week.
Hot Chip - "Touch Too Much" (Fake Blood Remix)
Everyone's favourite slice of modern-day rave gives Hot chip a fidgety electro reworking. There's a link on my Hot Chip post from the other day.

Youth Attack! - "Yo Paris!"
These two Leeds-based teens could very well be Britain's answer to Justice. Having just relaunched their club night Kill The Rhythm, these guys are a band to keep an eye on in 2009.

Playdoe - "It's That Beat" (Toxic Avenger Remix)
The original electronic hip hop beat is trashed and replaced with a glitchy, grinding electro instrumental. Toxic Avenger totally E-A-Ts this B-E-A-T.

Phoenix - "1901"
Killer keyboards? Check. Bouncy, upbeat indie rock guitars? Check. French? CHECK. This is a great song to drive to, and what's even better is Phoenix have it as a FREE download on their MySpace page!

Xinobi - "Day Off"
Just when you think this is going to be another old house tune letting a disco sample do all the work, Xinobi drops a HEAVY electro bassline in there to mix things up. Brilliant!
