who says chill can’t be fun? for london outfit hot chip, the two simply can’t be separated; for musician/ producer/ remixer/ dj max tundra, it’s about bringing out the maximum levels of both, and that’s exactly what he’s done with hot chip’s “playboy”, one of the standout tracks from their 2004 debut coming on strong. while the original version glided effortlessly on a peugeot blasting yo la tengo in its speakers, max tundra – who in fact had recently been touring with hot chip – pushes everything a level up, stepping on the pedal but also braking hard, without losing the element of cool that so characterized the song in the first place.
