MUNK feat. Asia Argento “No Milk” Mercury Remix (Video)

Single “No Milk” out November 2009 including more remixes by Ben Mono and Muzzle Flash. Video by Niklas Groschup & Valentino Betz


Munk – No Milk (Maxi)

Release: 13 November 2009
Cat#: Gomma DT 006

After the huge sucess of the last MUNK Remix single Back Down now here comes the next one: 3 new remixes of No Milk…..taken from the Cloudbuster album. No Milk features Italian actress ASIA ARGENTO who already performed on MUNK’s Live Fast Die Old single. The biggest remix comes from Berlin’s superproducer BEN MONO. Ben plays bass in the MUNK live band, but your certainly know him from his own productions. He’s got this amazing fat bass-driven sound – comparable with the current music of people like LIFELIKE, BREAKBOT and SHAZAM. The same way of hard funk that rocks every dance floor!…and: when the percussions kick in the ladies start to scream!

Remix No.2 by MERCURY. Two guys who did the infamous Bootleg Remix for PARRA aka LELE’s Breakfast Track. Hard House! And the last remix was done by Copenhagen’s upcoming House Genius MUZZLE FLASH..a close friend of Trentemöller and the WHOMADEWHO gang. This guy’s gonna be big one day!

1) Ben Mono Version
2) Mercury Remix
3) Muzzle Flash Remix
4) Original Club Mix

Munk with Asia Argento – Live Fast Die Old Part 2 (12″)

Release: 16 June 2008
Cat#: Gomma 111

ED BANGER Records chief BUSY P is a huge fan of MUNKs piano disco anthem LIVE FAST DIE OLD (from MUNK’s new album “Cloudbuster”).. When Busy heard it for the first time he immediately wanted to make an own version of it. And here it is: the first ever ED BANGER All Stars Remix! And it’s banging!!

The flip side features an deep space techno extravaganza by Danish discogrungers WHOMADEWHO. Their first release since two years. And it’s a genrehopping master piece. Starting with a easy Minimal beat . Developing into a 6/8 s Shaffel Techno and ending up as intense Technodiscorock. Amazing.

Third Remix is a BAILE FUNK remix by Rio de Janeiro’s underground DJ number one: THE AMAZING CLAY.

The flip side brings an equaliy groundbreaking piano disco remix by Gomma’s own HEADMAN. The third mix is the tune which sound most like the original track: it’s the most discoish version of the track.
