The birth of the extended disco mix, legendary pro-ducer Tom Moulton recalled recently, came when he wondered if he could keep a song "going up and up and up." Like Moulton, Brooklyn's Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser are hot-shit remixers (MGMT, Moby, Phoenix) who often keep their analog synths pulsing past the six-minute mark. They also seem to have peaked early with 2007's eerie Italo stunner "Hold On"; the duo's debut full-length boasts top-shelf guests (Michael McDonald!), but its cut-copied hooks and sleekly pleasant grooves mostly stay earthbound.
