Change is Gradual

Processory is a group comprised of two producers, Jori Hulkkonen and Jerry Valuri. They released a self-titled album in 2007 which showed different sounds from these more club-oriented producers. Change is Gradual, their new album released in May, shows the group growing even further, with both gentlemen sharing duties on singing, producing, playing, etc.

It’s a very chilled-out record but it moves along at an enjoyable pace. They released an EP earlier this month featuring two remixes of album tracks, and plan on releasing another tomorrow featuring a remix by Hercules & Love Affair. He’s a remix from the first EP, Recovery Measures by one of my favorite producers.

In other CFCF news, he released an instrumental EP on his Bandcamp last week. Get that here for $3.

Cover Your Tracks

I was listening to CFCF’s remix of Korallreven’s “Truest Faith” this morning and realizing how much I love him and wish he did more remixes like it. Imagine my pleasure when Fader threw up this remix of Young Galaxy’s “Cover Your Tracks” which is one of my favorite songs of the moment. The result is moody and slinky, more CFCF-y goodness.

♫ Cover Your Tracks (CFCF Remix)

You can download the whole EP for free featuring more remixes by Teen Daze, Dunez, and Freedom or Death. Grab the zip file here.

Young Galaxy’s album Shapeshifting is out now on Paper Bag Records.
