Troy Pierce (aka Louderbach, Slacknoise and one third of Run Stop Restore with Magda and Marc Houle) unleashes one of the year’s most anticipated tracks with 25 Bitches. The original track goes back a while, coming into creation as a joke composed while stuck waiting in an airport. Not like humor is never ever a part of Troy’s music or persona, 25 Bitches has been knocking down doors in his and fellow DJ’s sets like Magda and Richie Hawtin since last fall. Pierce’s bass-heavy mix starts off full of dark ghosts, working into a dub bassline and surgical mix of effects and vocals.
Gaiser packs dynamite into his reworking with Too Many Bitches Makeover.

Explosive bass and a sonic edginess are Gaiser’s weapons, working with percussion and effects into a fever-pitched remix that has been destroying dancefloors in Gaiser’s live sets and DJ sets by Pierce & Hawtin worldwide for months. Marc Houle reworks 25 Bitches like he’s dragging it through an arcade floor from the 1980’s. His bounce and snap treatment turns the original on its side, carving in a pop-ish attitude and a new aggressive side to Houle’s electro wisdom. Under the controls, Heartthrob detunes and operates the subject into a haunted bendy swing, adding his soon-to-be-signature bassline. It’s the slow punch and melody that Heartthrob hooks into with his grinding yet flowing treatment.
