Olin & Savile - Thanks, Karl
Olin returns to Argot with fellow Smart Bar resident Savile in tow for our first release of 2015. The vinyl-only "Thanks, Karl" is a loving tribute to one of Smart Bar's biggest and best bouncers, the swaggering confidence of its guitar-led groove and bombastic drum break emulating his many charms. Savile's version reduces the track to a dubbed out floor-filler, swollen bass notes adding bruised funk vibes to the mix. Meanwhile, Olin's version shakes dance floors with suffocating bass, massive kicks, and relentless drum programming, as if putting dancers on the receiving end of Karl's huge fists. The record's B-side features an illustration of Karl by Minneapolis artist Jamie Kinroy.
