Yes Giantess producer and Passion Pit synth-bro Ayad Al Adhamy (Bo Flex) made a serious dent in 2009, releasing a solid stock of high profile remixes including Phoenix’s 1901. Always looking out for our DC homies, we wanted to re-visit Bo Flex‘s remix of Keep It Cool by local favorite US Royalty. And if you’re in need of a guaranteed party starter, download the Sleepyhead remix as well (Fresh Prints approved).

If you have a chance to see Danger live, DO NOT MISS OUT. I saw him in Berlin a while back and he absolutely destroyed it. Cop the teaser track as well as a classic Danger remix below.
