It’s official: The Glass are a double threat. Not only are the boys from New York City, by way of Dublin, creating their own tunes, they’re also producing sought-after remixes for DJs to play around the globe.
The proof, Remixes and Rarities, showcases a slew of tracks they’ve reworked for various artists and an equal amount, from their own vault of rarities, produced by an assemblage of optimum remixers. Robbers on High Street, 120 Days and that Italian siren, Asia Argento, all handed over files to The Glass for remixing and vice versa to producers Eli Escobar, Mylo and Rinôçerôse. Steadfast swagger with thumping basslines are The Glass’ constant themes and trademarks throughout the album’s entirety. Stand out tracks include Argento’s “Vampy,” Robbers on High Street’s “Married Young” and Mylo’s version of The Glass’ “Hear the Music.” All of which, we’re sure, are quite popular in Le Discothèque.
