Montreal producer and DJ Mike Silver caught Paper Bag's ear with a deft remix for their Sally Shapiro compilations. He did the same thing for the HEALTH//DISCO remix record, and his track was the highlight simply because while most DJs tend to boost up a track with heavier bass, vocal edits and other dance-floor drivers, CFCF goes the opposite way.
He mellows down tunes, smooths them out with a Moroder touch and keeps the melody intact or improves on it with Kraftwerkian efficiency. And that's just his remixes. This digital EP is all original compositions, and there isn't a dud to be found through seven killer cuts that'll have you drooling for his full-length.
Top track: Crystal Mines
CFCF hits the Drake Underground on Friday (November 21).
