One time we stumbled upon a Chemical Brothers 12" in the office kitchen free pile, and we had to level an accusatory "Bro...bro!" to no one in particular. Sure, the guys are responsible for some head-scratching artistic decisions as of late, but dammit, when you see them in your kitchen show them some respect. They made Dig Your Own Hole! Does that count for nothing? Tom and Ed channel their 1997 LP pretty heavily (and appropriately) on this new Oasis remix, managing to take Noel Gallagher rhyming "We live a dying dream" with "D'you know what I mean?" and still make it sound kind of epic. Or at the very least, Buzz Bin-worthy. Who else is gonna buy orange lens sunglasses over the weekend?
