Here are a couple of great refits on one of last year’s more memorable singles, from one of last year’s best new bands. “Cheaters” is the signature song on Teengirl Fantasy’s debut LP 7AM, a paean to Chicago house built on a dramatically recontextualized vocal sample. That sample is spun out a step further: via Barcelona DJ John Talabot, who holds tight to the Love Committee’s pitched down “Cheaters Never Win” vocals and puts them into something fitting for an Ibiza house night; and via Beautiful Swimmers who pair bits of Teengirl’s synths with ominous ones their own and typically terrific, balmy world funk.
The “Cheaters” 12″ is out this month via Barcelona’s Hivern Discs. You can take the original for keeps:
