Just in case you're not up on who JD Samson is, here's a quick catch-up session: The Ohio-native is a veteran of the electroclash scene, a member of the incredibly successful outfit Le Tigre, and a pioneer of the producer-DJ-remixer field. Trust us, if you've ever visited any New York City club worth it's weight in drink tickets you've definitely heard THIS JAM and most likely THIS JAM too; that's Le Tigre. So, Samson is an OG in the electro game. Now that we're clear on that, let's talk about the latest project MEN.
The MEN project started back in 2007 with a handful of electro-superstars, including Michael O'neill, who has remained a constant throughout the life of the band. The group has continually released singles, EPs and even a full album of material in 2011. Well, it's been two years and Samson and Co. are ready to release a whole new body of work entitled Labor, but not before first releasing their remix EP for the lead single "All The Way Thru". This new EP features remixes from a slew of great producer/DJs and we're super stoked to be premiering one of our favorites today.
This "All The Way Thru" (Pop-mix) came to us by way of our good buddy Alex Suarez of Cobra Starship and Say Anything fame. Though he's well-known for his bass skills, he's been DJing and remixing tunes for a good number of years now and you can definitely hear a signature sound developing. Suarez aka Suareasy on Twitter worked with Samson and MEN on much of the new record and if this mix is any indicator of what the partnership has produced this crew should consider playing some big festival stages pronto. This jam is definitely big room ready! Check out the premiere below and pre-order the whole EP over HERE.
