SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): The Blackhats – Ralph and Vicky
Here’s a total novelty record made for us all geeks out there. Two hormonally-charged robots describing their courtship and fornication using computer terms (hard drive, cache, etc.) over an electro beat. The results are humorous, and on first play in mix show, messages came pouring in. With the right video and animated characters, this could cross over in a tech-obsessed world. Searching online, I found Chris Sammarco’s mix- which goes tribal and adds a bit of aggression with a good result. Release is apparently coming in September, so while you wait check out the “Cheekah Bow Bow” from the Vengaboys, a similarly themed robot love track featuring the only known appearance of DJ Bill Gates.
Here are previews of all the mixes:
