We all know the beauty Toro Y Moi has constructed on his latest studio album “Anything In Return”, so now it’s time for a funky twist. Our LA based friends Richnuss have done just that. Richnuss is the playful project between cousins Peter Nussbaum, founder of Guns in the Sun Records, & Billy Scher of psych-rock legends, American Royalty. The infectious grooves of this song don’t deviate much from the original except for adding some funk and a dance kick. With the AR infusion expect to taste a little psyche-rock drizzled in. Its a beautiful mixture and take on an already beautiful song. Keep an eye on these cats in the future.

The southern-cal homegrown indie electro band American Royalty recently released a huge remix package for their newest singles. The Matchstck Remixes EP comes loaded with 6 wildly different remixes of 3 original tracks: 2 bassline driven versions by dirtybird’s own J.Phlip, a deep techno side from Bang Gang’s Light Year, and 3 breakthrough productions from young guns Richnuss, Stryker Matthews, and Slates.
The J.Phlip and Light Year remixes are of course top notch, but my favorite is the ‘high brow deep house with a garnish of disco’ mix by Richnuss (comprised of Billy Scher of American Royalty and Peter Nussbaum of Guns In The Sun). You decide – the EP is completely for FREE DOWNLOAD from their facebook page!
