Mp3 exclusive: DJ C & Tiger Saw

DOWNLOAD: DJ C featuring Tiger Saw, “Fish Town Freighter (Remix).

Cambridge beat scholar, party scientist, Boston bouncer, remixer of M.I.A., and ragga maniac DJ C is the busiest man in Boston these days: he’s prepping a half-dozen releases on two continents including 7-inches, 12-inches, CDs, and digi-only downloads with guests ranging from Kid606 to Ghislain. He emailed us a few weeks ago and gave us the whoas:  

I've also got some releases coming up in the next few months. A digital, download-only EP on the Providence label Cozy Music, a 12-inch with Kid606 and Jonny P on Shockout, a 7-inch with a ragga vocalist named Zulu on Strategy's Portland OR based Community Library label, another 12-inch on the Bristol UK based Death$ucker label, and a remix of Max Sedgley for BBC Radio One DJ Rob Da Bank's Sunday Best label. I've also got an other little Euro-tour in the works for July, some more Mashit and Beat Research recs on the way, shopping an album that I finished up. On the DJ mix front, I'll be sharing a mix CD with Ghislain Poirier on the Tigerbeat6 Shotgun Wedding series, and working on solo mix for Blentwell's new series. Eventually I'll get back to the "B" series too. Ahhh!

But this song is our favorite of the batch: part of the aforementioned digital-only EP coming out next month on Cozy Music, it’s a hard-riding take on a soft-focus track by Newburyport indie-rockers Tiger Saw. C defibrilates their strummy haze, dials up a shock-proof heartbeat, and loops their plaintive boy-girl vocals into gorgeous dubstep reverie. Stay tuned: dude is on fire.
