Upon hearing Daft Punk's brilliant new album, Random Access Memories, this past May, two of our favorite producers were immediately inspired. The Potholes Music duo of AbJo and LAKIM then quickly got to work on flipping a few of the standout cuts on the record to create the Random Access Remixes EP. These include epic closing track "Contact", the Panda Bear-assisted "Doin' It Right", and throwback synth-epic "Touch".
Each and every RAM tune selected by AbJo and LAKIM was meticulously chopped-up and reinterpreted into something entirely new. What's most impressive is how they both tackled "Doin' It Right" with a completely different and refreshing approach. On one hand, you have AbJo's self-described "Turn Up RMX" that transforms the laid-back jam into a shot of audio adrenaline. Moments later, LAKIM's flexing his love for G-funk on his "Left Coast G-Mix", which is sure to stay in your summer rotation right alongside the original.
