Jai alai into flamingos! Sports that involve round pitching instruments and soft pink birds! Serenity now! This video, for "Calypso" from Round Table Knights' upcoming EP, is a steel drum house bubble jam from our Swiss friends. If you follow TheFADER.com, you'll know we're fans of Round Table Knights' seasonal mixes. "Calypso" upends that weather-based diligence, as it is strictly warm weather with the Caribbean percussion—look, they called the song "Calypso"—but they're releasing it during the winter. But we're glad to see a really heavy original production from our friends who are using up there DJing, hawking others' wares. We're counting down the days until they remix Tanlines/Tanlines remix them. The great steel drum wars of 2010 begin here.
