Nublu and In Flagranti meet in NYC



Another NYC phenomenon happens in a little spot called Nublu, somewhere in the East Village, behind a small blue light. It was a bar which became an art-space which became a jam which became a band (The Brazilian Girls). Their newest project is Kudu, a shoulder-shaking phreek funk project that recalls Grace Jones as much as it does the Pointer Sisters. The new single is "Barstar."

Your remixers, In Flagranti (Sasha Crnobrnja and Alex Gloor), house themselves at Codek records, a label that grew out of the old Organic Grooves parties, where live musicians (percussions, mainly) would sit in with DJs. It was nice.

Codek is also the label for the fringe phunk of G. Rizo, the Organic Grooves compilations and a full bag of party-starting 12s.

Most of In Flagranti's stellar remixes are dirty discoid reworks, inspired by italo disco and what I like to call electrobaclash. With thier Kudu remix, they throw in pieces from the dance music underground. You can hear slices of classic jams throughout the track. 'S pretty hot.

Ah, the GDM sample. The "Push It" references. Makes it almost hard to hear the vocals with all the spotting one can do... Thanks □ !
