Our favorite Parisian French Fries is now on his second EP on San Francisco imprint Dirtybird. The four track release, entitled Space Alarm, features two original tracks by French Fries along with two excellent remixes from Belgian duo goldFFinch and label veteran Justin Martin. The release is another solid contribution to the Dirtybird catalog, complete with the trademark quirkiness that made the label popular from the start. While the originals and Justin Martin remix will certainly hold their own on the dance floor, the remix by goldFFinch stands out as a glowing interpretation of "Smoke Wine".

Noticeably less aggressive than the original, the goldFFinch remix is a bouncy, toned down take on "Smoke Wine". The track carries characteristics typical of goldFFinch production, but offers a much more melodic backdrop, giving it a certain quality that makes it enjoyable in a club setting and in a mix. Speaking of mixes, I was able to reach out to the duo and they were kind enough to lend EARMILK an exclusive mix that was featured as the guest mix for Numbers on Rinse FM. It's filled to the brim with unreleased dubs, so follow the link below to find the tracklist in the Soundcloud page.
