Video + Audio: Spoek Mathambo & Cerebral Vortex "Drunk Like That" (Douster Remix)

Thanks to the good people over at RCRDLBL, we get this fresh Douster remix of "Drunk Like That" by Spoek Mathambo and Cerebral Vortex.  As big fans of Spoek's South African electro-dance vibe, we were excited to see Frenchie remix-master Douster on the bill, giving us a chance to focus on Spoek's skills as an MC.  Along with Cerebral Vortex, both MCs go in on this one, ordering the listener to take "shots" (both the alcoholic and the gun kind) - it's all a bigger ironic metaphor we're sure - uh, or maybe it's just a great party song - either way we just like singing along.  This mix and others can be found on the Drunk Like EP, which is out today (August 30) on Little Owl Recordings.  For the original, check out the video above.
