Kitsune Tabloid Mix: The Twelves!!

Hope you all had a great weekend. Here’s something special to kick off the week!
The Twelves have an unrivaled and uncanny ability to transform a song of any genre into downright pants off dance off track. Point and case, from their instant classic Essential Mix, Radiohead’s “Reckoner”; a bleak yet beautiful affair is turned into serious get-down-and-party tune. Their live sets are a blast! It’s “…a unique blend of lives keyboards, drum machines, mash-ups and remixing on the fly…Always trying to improvise as much as possible”. (FB)

Those of us in the DC Metro area will be lucky enough to catch the Rio based duo at the (unofficial) DPC headquarters, U Street Music Hall, August 17 (See our “Event” page). So come have a dance with us!

The Twelves were asked and obliged to do a mix for Kitsune Tabloid. This mix is actually a two parter put together. The first being a romp through a pop, indie, disco, and funk tracks (showing off their insta-dance-party Midas touch I mentioned before). The second half is a straight-up DJ mix. The whole thing will be released by Kitsune Tabloid August 28, but you can enjoy the stream now below!

EDIT: The original Soundcloud link had to be removed. Apparently it was posted in violation of international copyright law. We never hosted the mix; just shared a link to someone else's Soundcloud stream. It will be on sale through Kitsune Tabloid, August 29. In the meantime:

  1. Also, not that I didn't love The Twelves set last night, but what happened to the "Live" show I thought we were getting?

  2. Yeah, I was wondering about that too. They definitely were doing some stuff on synth/midi keyboards on top of mixing; but I kinda hoping for a full on live show with drums and everything...
