World dominating IndiePoppers Two Door Cinema Club are starting to sound a little samey if you ask us. There’s only so many combinations of frantic off-beat hi-hats, syncopated riffs, and summery leads. just take the track Handshake, for their last album, Beacon. It sounds like a Two Door Cinema Club song, like someone’s worked out a formula for that. At least we can count on the likes of Swiss Dreamwaver Ryan Riot to spruce things up a little.
Ryan does the job properly, adding a bouncy synth bassline and some kicking dance drums. Most of the original song is still there kicking about, but Riot elevated the track to new, exiting places with a few well-placed dance music tropes. On the whole it’s a decided improvement on the track, which becomes an exciting Indie-Electro floorfiller in Ryan Riot’s hands.
