Crosstown Rebels are immensely proud to present latest signing Fur Coat and their epic tech-funk odyssey. Featuring an absolutely killer remix from man of the moment Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs ‘Space Ballad feat. Argenis Brito’ is about to blow your mind.
A feast of funked up jamming, discoid transmitters and wonky tech wizardry, ‘Space Ballad’, featuring the extra-terrestrial vocals of Argenis Brito, is a twisted excursion to a parallel party universe. The chunky house groove and tricky weave of funk and techy kicks make for a thrilling cosmic ride that’s underpinned by a deep and dirty bassline. Fiercely championed by label-head Damian Lazarus, Fur Coat are about to mark themselves out as beacons of light in the Rebels stable.
In an almighty coup, Crosstown Rebels have snared one of dance music’s brightest talents to deliver a remix for the Venezuelan wunderkind. Bringing his innovative, boundary crashing style to the package, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs packs a bit more punch in the groove and propels epic soaring synths into a murky rave dynamic of gritty bashment beats and bass. TEED also lends his vocals to the second remix. The adventurous character recently travelled to the Congo in Africa as one of the personally invited producers to collaborate on Damon Albarn’s new LP project, working with local musicians for an album on Warp in association with Oxfam. After three magnificent EPs on the London/Berlin based Greco-Roman label, TEED’s next single ‘Garden’ is out in October and the highly anticipated debut album is expected early 2012.
Fur Coat aka Sergio Muñoz (Delete) and Israel Sunshine both grew up in Venezuela under the influence of old groove music from the funk, soul and disco era and 90’s jams as well as Latin grooves. Joining forces late in 2010 after their solo involvement in South America’s dance music scene brought their creative visions together, the Fur Coat project was born. The unpredictable nature of their evolving musical style will captivate the dancefloor but these gentlemen intend to transport your soul to another dimension. With an album in production and another EP on the way, ‘Space Ballad’ is just a taster for what’s in store.
