DANGER EP 09/17 2007 + One Republic Remix

Franck Rivoire is the man. He's got a die-hard following and it's not hard to understand why. His 3rd EP releases today, January 25th (on vinyl) and February 1st (digital). As you can tell from the video, Danger is all about the 16bit. And for that reason, the old school gamers love him. I have to borrow a quick quote here from   
"“4h30″ sounds like the music that should have been played during that badass ninja training 90s montage in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (you know the one, when they’re all sad because they don’t where Splinter is). Come to think of it, his costume kind of looks like a one of the footsoldiers for Shredder without the bandana."
4h30 - Danger

 I've been a fan of his stuff since I found the 09/14 2007 EP a couple years ago. This guy definitely has carved out a nice niche for himself and now he's taking it even higher with his remixes. Here's his version of One Republic's 'All The Right Moves'.

All The Right Moves (DANGER Remix) - One Republic


p.s. Interesting side note I found on wiki:
Danger Music is an experimental form of avant-garde 20th and 21st century classical music. It is based on the concept that some pieces of music can or will harm either the listener or the performer. Since the performances must nearly always be canceled before they can be performed, danger music can also be thought of more as a philosophical or political statement than as a composition of music. For example Takehisa Kosugi’s composition Music for a Revolution[1] directs the performer to gouge out one of his or her eyes five years from now. Works such as this are also sometimes referred to as antimusic because they seem to rebel against the concept of music itself. Danger Music is often closely associated with the Fluxus school of composition.

  1. This guy was hands down, the best dj/producer i have ever seen live. His rhythms were strange, and his performance was unforgettable.
