This song is one of my favorite "internet digs"(?) of all time. A couple years ago I found this song on Lovefingers. Track mislabling led me to a dead end when I tried to find more info, but alas, now there is a whole Wikipedia article on The Units - "a defunct, early Electronic music/punk rock/New Wave/Synthpunk band founded in San Francisco in 1978." There is something profoundly awesome in the raw synths.
On discovery, I sent it over to DJ Grandtheft, who breathed some current dancefloor life into it.
The title and the sound resonate.
Grandtheft is a busy man these days, what with his nonstop touring as part of the infamous Team Canada DJs, his own burgeoning career as a producer, running his startup Tremendous Records imprint, and holding down the beloved Blue Dog Motel on Duluth and St. Lo. Above all, however, he remains a student of the game and shows it with this proper remix of The Juan MacLean's track "One Day" from the legendary record label DFA. Check below for the DL link!
