Album News: Friendly Fires Bug Out on new DJ Compilation!
UK indie-dance favourites Friendly Fires have returned with a special compilation for Bugged Out! Records, entitled ‘Suck My Deck’.
Coming into fruition after the trio were curators for a Bugged Out! event in London last year – featuring UK-post rock trio The Invisible and Joe Goddard of Hot Chip – “Suck My Deck” is sixteen tracks born from a mutual appreciation for dance music.
Expertly balanced, the compilation features a deft combination of rock solid party tracks, including “City & Industry” by BDI, “Coma Cat” by Tensnake as well as the lush reflective sounds of “Lost In The Streets of NYC (Boris Werner Lost In Malta Remix)” by Tom Trago and classic cuts like the Balearic favourite “Din Daa Daa” by George Kranz. One of the album’s high points is “Stay Here”, a collaboration between Friendly Fires and Toronto house crew Azari & III.
“It’s more of a party compilation than anything, but there’s lots of variation too,” says Fires’ Jack Savidge. “Music for the dancefloor isn’t as one dimensional as it’s often painted. There’s a lot of dance music that’s thoughtful and sad. We wanted to combine that with some of the more banging stuff that’s elsewhere in the mix.”
