WE LIKE THE TWELVES

If you are in London tonight come along to The Legion on Old Street in Shoreditch.
We are playing alongside Rio de Janeiro's finest The Twelves.




Here's a little remix for you from The Twelves.

Terry Poison - “Comme Ci Comme Ca” (The Twelves Remix) (version 2) - mp3


The breakthrough for The Twelves came in July of 2007 when they remixed the track “Boyz” from M.I.A’s sophomore album, Kala. The reworked track with an added club feel resulted in one of the most talked about remixes of 2007. The blog coverage surrounding the remix was extensive and eventually the track started to pop up in sets from high profile djs around the world.

The duo followed “Boyz” with equally well received remixes for Asobi Seksu and Erlend Oye, both of which were featured on a number of blogs and music related sites. This stream of good tracks soon caught the attention of a number of labels, including Modular Records (home of Cut Copy, Klaxons and others) who commissioned a “Twelves Remix” of the song “Get Lucky” by New Young Pony Club. The resulting remix was released alongside reworkings from household names like MSTRKRFT and Who Made Who, and received excellent reviews.


Their live show is a unique blend of live keyboards, drum machines, mash-ups and remixing on the fly. Always trying to improvise as much as possible.
