At last year's SXSW, somewhere between screaming like teenage girls when The Tough Alliance came on stage and our twentieth trip to the make your own Bloody Mary station, Acéphale label founder Patrik North slipped us a CD-R of these jammers from Montreal's CFCF. Since then, CFCF has popped up around the internet with remixes for everyone from Apache Beat to this one of Cassie's "Official Girl," where he takes the robotic detachment of the original and transforms it into a song full of warm sci-fi synth ripples that conveniently emphasize the ultra-creepiness of Wayne's verse. Also, over at Discobelle, CFCF put together a mix of some of his favorite songs of the last couple years. Impressive, considering we have a hard enough time picking our favorite songs of the last two weeks.
