Benoit & Sergio – Around The World

Jul 8 2011

On this vinyl-only release on Gadi Mizrahi’s Double Standard label, Benoit & Sergio lay down a deep electro funk version of Daft Punk’s unfuckwithable “Around The World”.

Does it work? If you consider their intentions, then absolutely, as B&S almost plead to not have this track be taken the wrong way in a recent Dazed Digital interview, stating “we would never try to redo or “compete” with a track like “Around the World.” Our cover is so far away. This is a fragile electrofunk take on a really happy dance track. ”

If that doesn’t sound appealing enough, the B-side is a Slow Hands cover of Sade’s “Sweetest Taboo”. Glad that serious dance music still ain’t taking itself too seriously.
