Our good friend Cosmo (aka Brett Thorngren) who we've written about before here is the epitome of a mad scientist, a mad musical scientist! I'll be hanging out with Brett at a club, he'll get an idea for a song, head out and by the next morning have a fully completed track. It's pretty insane. I guess that's how genious minds work.
Anyways Brett has recently teamed up with long time Miami artist Gil Bitton former lead singer of Endo to start a new project called Crystal Cadillac. They've sent over their first EP which includes a cover/mash up they've done with the classic Siouxsie and the Banshees track "Cities in Dust" and their original track "Love & War". The result, pure dance floor gold!
In addition to the mash-up and their original version they've also recruited fellow Miami native/friend Ryan Evans who we've written about before several times, most recently for his excellent La Roux Remix here, to do a remix of the track. That too came out exquisite. He slowed down the track to great effect, making it a more chilled out version of the original.
Here are those three tracks for you to sink your teeth into. At the pace Brett works I have a feeling we'll be seeing a full length album like next week. No, but real soon I'm sure. We'll keep you updated.
