The Moustache Men (New Money, Classi Assi, DJ F.UN.K.) in collaboration with color magazine and adidas skateboarding have arrived at our doorsteps toting a new mixtape, titled Hyper Color. Time to bring out your ipod, a piece of plywood and four wheels and get ready for an overwhelmingly good mix of music.

We caught up with the Mustache Men to find out about the tape and how their girlfriends feel about their new facial hair. Ironic finger mustache tattoos not included.

Download here.

Did you grow mustaches to match your name?

DJ F.U.N.K.: I think I grew a dirty 'stache for a big Halloween jam we were doing and it stuck around partially because I was feelin’ sassy and a bit of laziness too. But people get pretty disappointed when we show to a party without 'em so I schedule shaving/shearing around the shows we do.

How do your girlfriends feel about that?

Classi Assi: My girlfriend is more concerned with my pet anaconda's and jellyfish aquarium then the tuft of hair sprouting under my nose.

How did this mixtape come about?

New Money: I've known Sandro from Color for years and when we spoke about this upcoming issue, they wanted something that corresponded musically to their new issue, which happens to have an interview with some dubstep/hyperdub producers.

Did you have a certain "feeling" you wanted to convey in mind?

New Money: We reinterpreted a lot of sounds and songs from how we usually serve up tracks live. I think there's not so much one genre but some tracks from all across the spectrum which is more or less how we play.

What are you guys up to these days?

Classi Assi: Right now still reeling from traveling. We haven't had a chance to get back to MTL and get our bearings cause we've only had a day or two home at a time. Working a lot more on remixes and new tracks with a goal of developing a particular sound. I'm also learning how to play the piano. Expect recitals.
