Hear a hot mixtape from DFA's remix royalty.
Mon Jul 26 2010
Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser, otherwise known by the marginally sacrilegious moniker Holy Ghost!, have paid their dues: They spent years working their fingers to the bone in DFA’s back-room studio-sweatshop, toiling away as the label’s in-house musicians. That was then and this is now. After a series of absolutely fabulous remixes for artists ranging from Moby and Jazzanova to In Flagranti and MGMT, the duo’s recent Static on the Wire EP blew away fans of hook-stuffed electronic disco. And now? Well, the guys are bona fide rock stars, with a full band and (we presume) a bevy of groupies just begging for more. The Ghosts are playing twice this week—opening for Chromeo at Bowery Ballroom on Thursday, July 29 and playing with Hot Chip and Hercules and Love Affair (what a bill!) at SummerStage on Wednesday, August 4. Until then, enjoy this two-part megamix of the aforementioned Grade-A remixes.
