I'm really feeling STREETLAB's new project. They sold me on their remixes for Passion Pit, Cubic Zirconia and Crystal Castles, but their hit NY Sound featured on HBO just put the dot on the i for me. New Yorkers have chance to check them in action this Friday, March 13th.
Remix kings StreetLab, a NYC-based electronic duo, whose lethal catalog of work erases all boundaries between dance and rock music, will be performing at Union Square's Best Buy store (1 East 14th street) on March 12th. Once Mark 'Cosmo' Lamorg and Ryan Leary delve into their set of dance electro bangers, I'm expecting the plasma tv screens to be rattling and the stocked headphones to be falling off the racks.
URB.com declares that Streetlab "base their music on the ability to make rock and dance music the same…so there are no excuses for being a wallflower!" and Billboard Magazine heralds the duo for having "built up an impressive set of club -ready commissioned remixes from such acts as Crystal Castles, Nine Inch Nails, and Kinski, plus several original grooves of its own".
With an endless list of remixes and a growing collection of original material to their name, Streetlab is gearing up to unleash their debut full-length album entitled AUTO SPKR set for an April 20th, 2010 release. Their latest single “Rat Racer” is available on iTunes and will be the first single off the album.
