#FreeFriday Episode No. 072: Scanners – Control (Boots N’ Pants Remix)

851 564 Dim Mak

If your Thursday turn up was too real and went straight into your Friday work morning, take a nice coffee break and let your mind and body get carried away with this relaxing, deep house remix of Scanners’ “Control” from Boots N’ Pants. Boots N’ Pants has a special place in Dim Mak’s heart as our own Matt Jenks wears the pants in this legendary DJ Dou. If you are not feeling cheap on this lovely Friday then head over to iTunes and buy the damn thang… Jenks needs the $ for strippers and adult diapers.

For all of our trillions of devoted #FreeFriday followers we have sad news for you… There will not be another #FreeFriday until next year. The struggle will be real but I know we can get through this if we all stick together and support each other. Check back in 2014 because we will be back with an all new #FreeFriday format.

Scanners fans, rejoice! The quartet is back after two years of silence with the release of their full length album “LOVE IS SYMMETRY” today on Dim Mak Records! Go ahead and do a celebratory dance around your living room/cubicle/desk/etc. I’ll wait. Done? Awesome! Let’s talk about how cool this album is, shall we? 12 tracks of pure transcendental music that we’ve come to associate with the Scanners name, “Love Is Symmetry” is the perfect indie-dance cool down you’ll need this summer. Sometimes dancey, sometimes chillingly mellow, sometimes sexy, and always completely brilliant, “Love Is Symmetry” may be the most enduring album to date for this uber talented group. In a world permeated by hot and heavy beats and wibble wobbles, Scanners feel like a an ice cold glass of southern sweet tea to the soul. Get your indie movie vibes on with Scanners’ “Love Is Symmetry”, an album well worth the two year wait.

Artist Spotlight: Scanners ‘Control’

847 470 Tim Gauthier

Dark pop/alternative indie band, Scanners performed their featured track “Control” at the Dim Max x Buygore Austin 2013 Showcase where the band played live alongside some of Dim Mak and Buygore’s biggest artists. “Control” is the melodic and gritty guitar filled single off their new album ‘Love is Symmetry’. The music video for “Control” is a compilation of different live performances the band did in Austin and highlights their passionately energetic stage presence and their signature folky alternative sound.
The London based band is making their highly anticipated return back to the world of music after two years of silence with the release of their new album ‘Love is Symmetry’, their third full-length album on Dim Mak Records scheduled to be release in June 2013.

Scanners have been a part of Dim Mak’s roster of artists since 2006, after Dim Mak chief, Steve Aoki, came across their track, “Violence is Golden” on the internet and later made a trip to London and signed the band. Since then, Scanners have released their debut and sophomore albums, ‘Violence is Golden’ (2006) and ‘Submarine’ (2010) on Dim Mak as precursors to ‘Love is Symmetry’. But their success does not stop there. They have also been featured on a number of popular television shows including Gossip Girl, Shameless, One Tree Hill, Entourage, and a live performance on the ‘Carson Daly’ Show. Along with their television show features, Scanners have supported distinguished acts worldwide including Silversun Pickups, Devo, and Juliette and The Licks among many others.

In April, the band toured around Germany in celebration of ‘Love is Symmetry’ and will continue touring the States and Europe throughout 2013.

The Mexico EP, which features their single “Control”, is out now and available for purchase on iTunes.

Later this year Love Is Symmetry album will come out on Dim Mak Records.

#FreeFriday

(via VICE)
Scanners has been kicking around Camden for eight years now, perfecting a laser-fried blend of dance-punk and leaving beer-soaked UK club nights in their wake. According to our analytics, you’re from the States, so you’re forgiven if you haven’t been keeping up with them. They’ve kept a low profile over the past few years, but are slated to release a new LP for Dim Mak, entitled Love Symmetry, later in the year.

Order the “Mexico EP” today on iTunes, with additional tracks including “Mexico” and “Charmed Life”. – http://bit.ly/13lu8Jh
