Joker, can we just tell you how much we feel your skunky bass vibes? Natty Danes Turboweekend's angsty single "Trouble Is" is like their One Republic "Apologize" as seen through the bass lens of Blank Dogs, which kinda on principle we're not that mad at. In lesser hands a remix coulda gone the way of a Filene's dressing room but Joker never, ever goes out like that. He's clearly been busy since he's been "IN DENMARK" as his myspace says, processing Turboweekend's new-wavy bassline through a dubinator and translating the concept of "GUITAR LICK" into a slick riff in the futurezone. It's an excursion into the dark crevices of your feelings, but don't EVEN try and tell us you're not at least a little emo. Meanwhile we're counting the days till he hits the States (New York on the 21st!).
