So, Neneh Cherry and Robyn, two artists we are extremely fond of, made a record together; and it’s was OK. Not nearly as epic as we would have liked, or would have expected, but still pretty solid. But fear now, here comes Hot Chip and The 2 Bears’ Joe Goddard to whip the song into an enthralling electronic masterpiece. Hooray!
Goddard’s take on Out Of The Black is a slow building synthetic House beats with clicky Garage-y beats and a hypnotic groove. Starting off keeping the original’s ominous tone, the tune soon elevates into a fairly uplifting floorfiller, complete with layers of snyth zaps and pops. The duo’s vocals take on a softer feel amongst the rising pads while loosing none of their edge. Involving stuff.
