Jesse F Keeler and AL P are the Torontians from planet Dance in the Modular system. Their remix of Wolfmother’s ‘Woman’ took the brilliant 70’s, zeppelin-sounding track, and wrist-kicked it straight into the 80’s. On Earth, there was much rejoicement.
MSTRKRFT’s sublime sense of merging rock and electro has been one of their trademarks since 2004 when Death from Above 1979's Jesse F. Keeler teamed up with producer Al-P. The Toronto-based duo made a move from DFA 1979's abrasive rock to robotic electro, complete with vocoders and handclaps. Aside from the Wolfmother remix, they’ve remixed a wide array of artists from Bloc Party to Kylie Minoque and the release of their second album, 2009's “Fist of God”, saw them jump from Modular to Dim Mak/Downtown where they scored guest appearances from Ghostface Killah, N.O.R.E. and E-40.
The force is strong with MSTRKRFT.
