My latest obsession: Team Canada DJs

up-2teamTeam Canada DJs‘ upcoming release Canadian Club is like a portable party (also know as a porta-party, ha!). The Montréal duo (DJs Grandtheft and D.R. one) have an intense passion for procreating oldies classics with today’s top 40 hits, and when you cram these mash-ups onto one shiny disc, you’ve got a major dancestravaganza waiting to happen.

Unlike their previous works, Canadian Club is more of a straight-up remix album. It isn’t jam-packed with filthy, juicy mash-up purées, but you do get the same awesome classics laced with original beats. Some notable remixes include David Bowie’s “Rebel Rebel,” Steppenwolf’s “Born To be Wild” and Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World.”

You can purchase the album for yourself on October 20.

By the way, I’m in the process of getting DJ Grandtheft to do a quick Q&A with me on Twitter (he’s a Twitterholic, by the way) in advance of their October 22 and 23 shows in Vancouver. I’ll post the interview on here afterwards.

In the meantime, here are a few tracks from Canadian Club. In this order they are: Drake’s “The Best I Ever Had (Grandtheft Remix),” Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ “By The Way (Grandtheft Epic remix)” and Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven Is A Place On Earth (Grandtheft Edit).”
