SPLATINUM (Andrew Luck and Dosadi), from Seattle came to my attention through Mochipet and his absolutely smashing remix of their Pumping Quarterz. Now, they spread the werd across the blogosphere distributing 16 remixes of songs from their forthcoming album WE ARE SPLATINUM to be released on Daly City Records on 04/20/2010.

The idea is that each blogger selects one track to be exclusively posted on his/her blog. After listening to all the tracks I believe that Mochipet's remix is still the best, but it has already popped up across the blogosphere. Apart from this, there are at least 6 - 7 equally good reworks of Splatinum's tunes. My next choice then is Captain Hook's VIP remix by Mindelixir. Unsettling, dark mood with heavy dubstep subs hot piano slabs based on a nearly industrial beat and pulsing bassline really caught my attention. Mindelixir is a rising dubstep producer from Charlotte, NC that released his first full length, titled Futurism in March of 2010. He is a busy boy of the Southeast scene, often traveling to play two or three shows a week! Visit his soundcloud for more music and download Splatinum - Captain Hook (Mindelixir VIP Remix) for free:

With the music I've heard so far from SPLATINUM, they immediately entered my list of to-watch artists and I'm now eagerly awaiting their 2 releases dropping on simultaneously on 20 April:.

1. WE ARE SPLATINUM - 9 track digital release on Daly City Records
2. Der Schplatzl 2010 - 16 track compact disc on Daly City Records (7 tracks are unavailable digitally)

You can preview Der Schplatzl on We Are Splatinum Bandcamp. One of the best and versatile full-length releases I've heard recently. Not to be missed!
