Less than two months after the release of their excellent Changes EP, LOL Boys, the production duo of Los Angeles’ Jerome Potter and Montreal’s Markus Garcia, have announced an indefinite hiatus. Together, they’ll release a Changes remix EP, out soon, and separately, move forward with solo projects. Potter, as Jerome LOL, is first out of the gate with a 10-minute instrumental called “Happy/Sad,” where house vocal snippets and Instant Messenger log-off bleeps lay overtop unflagging ride cymbals. There’s bits of Erykah Badu’s voice, too, singing what’s perhaps the moral: The world keeps turning. As a parting gift, Potter and Garcia are offering fans a track-by-track download of their top-notch FADER Mix. Download those edits, of Fiona Apple, Avicii, Jeremih and more, below.
