Ancient Astronauts - Put Em Up EP

Just downloaded the new remix EP from Ancient Astronauts. Got a bunch of remixed tunes of their latest album "We Are To Answer." Love ze downtempo Germans. Here's what ESL Music (Thievery Corporation's label) has to say about the new release. I put it here b/c, well, I agree:

"ESL Music brings the dopeness once again with Ancient Astronauts’ brand new “Put Em Up EP” featuring the brand new lead hip-hop cut “Put Em Up” with rhymes by Raashan Ahmad. Also featured on the EP are brand new exclusive remixes of tracks from the Astronauts’ debut album We Are To Answer. Tru Thoughts’ in-house beatmaestro TM Juke reworks “Everybody” into a funky electro breakbeat smasher, while the BBC’s reigning exotic downtempo DJ Pathaan reworks “Lost in Marrakesh” into a smooth drum&bass roller. The EP is rounded out by superb remixes by Protassov, Lance Herbstrong, and Gianma."

Yeah, I dig it. Really nice flow of electronic downtempo with hip hop overlays.
