MSTRKRFT make bad music good.

Looking for just the right thing to throw into your cd player onto your ipod to please all the hipsters coming to your BBQ? I present you a collection of remixes by the Canadian duo known as MSTRKRFT. Both dudes were associated in one way or another with the criminally slept-on band, Death From Above 1979 (Jesse was the bassist and Alex produced their second album). I don’t know how they didn’t get more popular… How many bands do you know only have a drummer and a bassist AND the drummer is the lead singer??? BAD ASS.

It is hard to deny their ability to take a mediocre, sometimes downright terrible, song and turn it into a dancefloor hammer. Enjoy the remixes and bonus videos after the jump!

MSTRKRFT talk a bit about how they remix a song (give it a chance, they are stoned so it starts getting good halfway through):
