Smalltown DJs & Grandtheft – Good People

Youtube Video Edited by Harry Walsh
Soundcloud (stream and download)
Direct Download (right click save target as)

Close your eyes and picture the cast of Hee-Haw at a massive rave – “Good People” is the soundtrack, a rollicking banjo banger. This release marks the second outing on T&A for both the Smalltown DJs and Grandtheft, following up Loving The Vibe and Gangsta Musik / Splash, respectively. Early support from Soggy Bottom Boys, the Duke Brothers, Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel, Barney Fife and Jeff Foxworthy.

The Good People EP comes out on January 8, 2013, with remixes from XXXChange and Nacey. XXXChange’s remix is hard as fuck, while Nacey’s is deeper and more melodic. The B-side, Stuck Here, is a tech-house floor-filler with an equally irresistible hook. The Good People tour is currently rampaging across Canada.

Smalltown DJs & Grandtheft – Good People  Full EP coming January 8.
