Weekend Woes Inspire Latest Release by Netherlands’ MightyFools Cross-genre dance duo returns to Potty Mouth Music with second EP, “Worse Than Yesterday”
CHICAGO—It took a nasty Sunday hangover to inspire the mixed-up sounds of the MightyFools’ newest release on LA-based Potty Mouth Music. The two tracks juxtaposed on “Worse Than Yesterday EP” (PMM031) pair reverb and stabbing synths with the kind of peak hour rave influences Andy Samin and Jelle Keizer do best. The result is a versatile, two-track EP that melds influences of house, electro and techno into one party-centric package.
Following up on their 2008 success of “Who Da Fool?”(PMM013), MightyFools return after a year of touring Australia, Europe and most recently, the U.S. While their DJ influences include marquee artists including A-Trak, Boys Noize, Tiga and Busy P, their studio work has taken on the more muted influences of funk and soul as of late.
“It has that special thing that we try to put into our music as well,” says Keizer.
Keizer and Samin have been putting their signature, genre-bending twist on their beats since they first began producing techno in the mid-’90s. Influenced by the rave culture of the day, the two began working more organic influences of house into their production work, creating twisty sounds that led to remix work for Tommie Sunshine, Will Bailey and Kelevra, to name a few.
On their latest EP, MightyFools again bring their vibe of music diversity to the dance floor with “Worse Than Yesterday.” The title track pulses as a heavy rave track for peak-hour sets, inspiring chaotic twists and what Keizer calls “crowd destroying sounds.” “Clean It” echoes the duo’s earlier PMM release, combining hip-hop vocal drops with analog synth stabs to create a pounding, effected out track that pulses with gruff groove.
Mightyfools dub their sound as futuristic house music that pushes the boundaries of the international house sound—regardless of the EPs they release. What keeps them players in the game?
“The music, the people, the beautiful cities we see and the great food we can taste every where,” Keizer says.
PMM031 “Worse Than Yesterday” is now available for purchase exclusively on beatport.com for four weeks. Look for it to be available for purchase on iTunes by January 2009.
