If you don’t already know, The Twelves are a Brazilian electro-pop duo that have been making waves in the indie world for their energetic remixes of blog buzz artists like The Black Kids, The Virgins, Radiohead, and Metric. They are technically flawless, and their DJ sets have built them quite a nice cult following. I am lucky enough to get to see them at U St. Music Hall tonight (tix available here) along with ATG favorite Will Eastman, and you should absolutely come out if you live in the D.C. area. Ever since the duo dropped a dirty remix of M.I.A.’s “Boyz” back in 2007, they have been steadily building a stable of remixes that, in my opinion, trump the originals in most cases. Check out their take on Radiohead and The Black Kids, and go see them tonight.

MP3: Radiohead – “Reckoner (The Twelves Remix)”
