Steely Chan: Remixing with Ableton
Steely Chan is the impressive and ambitious remix project of brothers Trevor and Matt Chan who are also both instructors at Off Centre. They're originally from Vancouver but make music in Toronto with the current mandate of posting a new remix every week for free download. They produce, dj, arrange & perform with laptops, turntables & controllers. Drawing from their hip hop background they create anywhere from funk, afrobeat and disco backbeats layered cleverly with a variety of hand picked and manicured vocal selections. Recent mashups include Jurassic 5 & Shawn Lee - World of Lagos, Adele and John Legend - Rolling in the Deep, and of course the remix featured in the above video Cee Lo Green - F*%k You B - Murray Mix. At one remix per week, there's obviously a lot more where this came from. Check the variety of flavours and/or download at your leisure to get some fresh remixes for your next gig http://soundcloud.com/steelychan.
