Want To Remix Bag Raiders' 'Nairobi'?

It's open season for budding producers to remix Bag Raiders' latest club single 'Nairobi' after the band blasted this invitation:

We're throwing up the parts for 'Nairobi' on Soundcloud for anyone out there who wants to have a stab at a remix, steal our drums, whatever. Sharing is caring!! Love, Bag Raiders xxx

The gesture doesn't discriminate - you could be Giorgio Moroder or Jane Roe, with the duo hyping a few successful swings on Twitter. Grab the stems and get to work.

'Nairobi' is the lead cut of their latest Club EP, featuring two dancefloor bound originals and remixes by Zombie Disco Squad and Roland Tings. It's now available worldwide through Modular via iTunes and all good digital retailers.

Listen: Bag Raiders - Nairobi

Listen: Bag Raiders - Nairobi

Chris Stracey and Jack Glass, aka Bag Raiders, have been hard at work crafting album #2, basing themselves in LA as they labor over the follow up to 2010's self-titled debut. However, they've continued to make deeply satisfying club music in tandem, and the immediacy and excitement of two recently-recorded lethal tracks has prompted a standalone EP, breaking their release drought of almost three years.

The EP will be released via Modular on July 4 (AUS), July 7 (UK/EU), July 8th (USA), and will feature two original club tracks, Nairobi and Savannah, each paired with a remix.

We're letting Nairobi loose today.

Recommends: Chris Stracey (Bag Raiders) Best of 2013

"2013 has been a year of working on a new album. A year of living in Los Angeles, taking a lot of hikes, eating a lot of kale and getting in tune with a lot of vibrations. It's been a year of discoveries also, mostly the discovery that real life can be stranger than fiction, and that the future is now, and that everything can kill you.

Here are some things i found out about in the science/tech world that blew my mind throughout 2013 and how they could probably kill you."

Watch: Bag Raiders Beach Jams

The Bag Raiders boys, procrastinating from recording their new album in the studio, jumped into the YouTube black hole and came back out holding a playlist of some top-shelf beach jams. Could be a coincidence, but it fits perfectly ahead of their weekend stay in a couple weeks time on the island paradise of Hvar in Croatia for FOR 2013.

Bag Raiders will be taking control of the decks on the Saturday night alongside 2manydjs, James Murphy and more. Full line-up here.
