Norwegian duo Ost & Kjex make a welcomed return to Crosstown Rebels with a heady club cover of Prince’s Dirty Mind. Ninja Tune’s Seven Davis Jr. and German producer Basti Grub step up to remix with stellar results.

After label boss Damian Lazarus asked why they hadn’t sent any new music lately, talented pair Ost & Kjex made it their mission to make a new release for Crosstown after 8 years. Delivering the goods, Dirty Mind is a minimalistic bomb with pulsating beats and soaring synths that lead you deep into the night.

“Our version of ‘Dirty Mind’ features our friend Mr. Mung from Mungolian Jet Set on vocals and we couldn’t be happier with our return release. The second track ‘Moviebox’ started of by using sounds from old 80s VHS machines, a sound design affair which turned out to be more melodic and trippy.” – Ost & Kjex

Ost & Kjex are responsible for the huge Crosstown releases How Not To Be A Biscuit and anthem Summertime with Jamie Jones. The duo have been releasing music for over a decade with two albums under their belt and notable releases on Solomun’s Diynamic amongst others.

Best known for his releases on Ninja Tune, Seven Davis Jr. is a trained gospel vocalist, raised on the classic vocal sounds of Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Prince. A fitting remixer for this cover, he delivers a sleazy cut with an intoxicating bassline. Recognised for releases on the likes of Cocoon and Desolat, Basti Grub also makes his first appearance on Crosstown. For his remix he serves up an intricate slice techno for the big room with hypnotic layers.
