ReSet! and R3SET

Who knows when you first heard of ReSet!? It could've been when they got hyped for their massive remix of Cassius's "Youth, Speed, Trouble, Cigerettes", you know the same remix that made it into super-group Club 75 Mixmag Mix.  Maybe it was their remix of the Audiobullies that made "Only Man!" polished and sparkle like the sun. Or maybe you just don't know about the awesome 4 Dj/Producer combo that is the Milanese powerhouse of ReSet! It really doesn't matter, because the fact is they make great music and because that's what we're about here at TCHNCRCY it's all we really need to know. The reason I draw your attention to the fantastic stylings of some of Italy's finest is that they just dropped a remix of Graffiti 6's "Annie You Save Me" that is too hot to hold and I've been looking for any excuse to bring these boys up. Give the sample a chance and wait till the vocal chopping comes in because it will bring the house down. Also,  check out the remix of Cassius I was talking about (there's a reason it got so much hype) and get down to the fidgety remix of London legend Hervé's "Blaze It". And because nothing beats one-stop shopping, check out their original "Gasa" which is not only dirty, grimey, and downright fantastic but it's got some crazy carnival synth stuff I can really get behind. We've got love for ReSet!

Reset! - Gasa (320 kbps)

This is for clarification, but mostly because they drop some crazy beats, but R3SET is not ReSet! I was very lost for a little while, blogs keep mixing the two up so I finally buckled down and checked it out. Maybe you already knew, but R3SET is a filthy French duo (Lionel de Fontenoy and Gilles Chateaubriant) from Strasbourg that produce and DJ some hard fucking electro. While I'm tempted to say I favor the Italians, if you've listened to R3SET's remix of DATA's "Rapture" you know how hard it is to choose. That track is by far one of the best tracks out there period.  Makes me long for Death From Above...come on Sebastien Grainger, stop fucking around! So which of the two is better? Who the fuck cares! The beauty is that they are both making banging music that you can enjoy. If you do one thing today, grab their DATA remix. And if you do three, pick up R3SET's remix of "D.A.N.C.E." (one of the only remixes of that song I ever listen to) and grab the Redial remix as well.
