At the time, Plug Research were compiling a remix album
for the Airtight’s Revenge LP,
& had reached out to Teeko to add his twist
to the album’s opener, “Cake & Eat It Too.”
Teeko obliged, & quite frankly – smashed it
w/ his slumpish, crescendoing “Re-Funk” of the track.
Plug Researched ended up scrapping the plans
for the remix album altogether,
but still urged Teeko to release his remix on his own,
noting that it was one of their favorite tracks turned in for the project -
so today, we do just that.
On the brink of new releases w/ two of his groups,
both the synth-funk collective Starship Connection w/ co-captain B. Bravo,
& the rotating assembly jam band, MUGPUSH -
Teeko wanted to let this one go today
as a pre-cursor of what’s to come this summer & beyond.
You can stream & get a free download of the “Cake…” re-funk below.
Also, included after that is the Starship Connection-featured clip
from SF blog Yours Truly‘s series on Pitchfork TV earlier this year,
featuring the band performing “The Roll Out,”
a song which Teeko co-wrote & produced w/ Bravo.
Look out for the Starship Connect’ EP dropping later this year on Frite Nite
Both Teeko & FRSH SLCTS would ask like to take this opportunity
to ask you to please donate what you can to the effort to get
our fallen friend, the great J-1 tHE DEER‘s
belongings sent back to his family & loved ones in Cleveland.
All donation info can be found on the Mugpush website.
