Trying To Be Cool (Breakbot Remix) - Phoenix

Trying To Be Cool (Breakbot Remix) – Phoenix

Phoenix’s album, Bankrupt! was released in late April and they’re seeing similar success that they saw on their Freshman release.  They did take a new approach with their remixes this time around.  A handful of artists have been comissioned to produce remixes for selected tracks.  More often than not it’s been the track, “Trying To Be Cool”.  It’s an excellent original and we’ve heard numerous remixes that are equally cool.  First, we heard a remix from The Dirty Projectors of “Entertainment (read and listen).  Then “Entertainment” got another reboot from Hot Natured (read more and listen).  Finally RAC did an excellent rework of “Trying To Be Cool” (read and listen).  While all the remixes are nothing short of excellent, it feels like this track was made for Breakbot to remix.  Breakbot is a French producer and DJ on Ed Banger records and he resembles the closest living relative to Jesus.  The track is straight disco-funky.  Fat basslines and guitar licks are spliced in and reworked all over the track.  You’re going to love this track and best of all, it’s free!  Enjoy!
