UNCAP THE ANTIDOTE and pull the plunger on that rig cuz it’s high season for infectious beats.  Contaminating the internets with viral virtuosity are three new remixes from Friends of Friends witch doctors Shlohmo and Salva, brewing cerebral maladies whose only cure is hitting repeat and letting those antibodies stack.

Shlohmo, in anticipation of his Aug. 9th release of Bad Vibes on FoF, single-handedly put the blogosphere in fits with new takes on Degrassi alum Drake’s “Marvin’s Room” and Burial’s “Shell of Light”.  Each track reflects Shlohmo’s current trajectory of lateral, airy, roomy beats rich in space, gossamer, and floating like a vapor.  Take a listen below.

Salva, whose Complex Housing was an early no brainer pick for the Best of 2011 lookout list, just dropped a remix of DZA “Zoo Keeper” on Error Broadcast that you can listen to below.  Breaking it down with a sultry half-time drum track, Salva rains sticky synth rifts with broad wooshy strokes and a jazner favorite 808 cowbell for a funky jam perfect for the summer late night dance party.

Big things are bubbling at Friends of Friends, you ain’t heard nothing yet!  Keep watch for Bad Vibes to drop in the coming weeks, as well as a Salva EP and Frite Nite compilation in the works coming soon to a stereo near you.
