San Francisco based Worthy released his debut full-length, Disbehave, last year, and it was a beauty. Sexy and grimy with a a dark bounce, it was an album of coalescing contradictions that worked just as well over drinks at a swank lounge as it did on blast at your favorite underground dance spot. And now the Anabatic label boss and Dirty Bird cofounder has tapped 18 (eighteen!) of his favorite cohorts to remix the album for a staggered double release: Worthy Disbehave Remixes 1 & 2.
The first album, set to drop on February 24th on Anabatic, features nine tracks reimagined by artists as diverse as Thugfucker, Tom Budden, and Pezzner. The second will feature Yolanda Be Cool and Will Clarke, among others. Worthy was kind enough to give us a sneak peak at the first and, believe, it is hot as shit. Budden does serious work to Burned, and the liquid funk treatment of Words by fellow Californians Bachelors of Science is mind-melting. The overall result is eclectic and just challenging enough to complement the original works.
Don’t take our word for it, though! You can listen to and download the dubby Pezzner remix of I Get today. Check it out below and head over to Worthy’s SoundCloud for the snatch.
Here’s the full track-listing. The second piece is scheduled for a March 17th release date–we’ll be sure to try and get you a little taste of that ahead of its release as well.
