Here’s just one of the reMixes of the amazing AlunaGeorge’s new single Your Drums, Your Love. Alongside the reMix package featuring Duke Dumont, the Prototypes and Deebs, Bedford’s Lil Silva steps up to give the track a shuffling, glitch workout.
We were lucky enough to catch AlunaGeorge live last weekend at Bestival, they were everything we’d hoped they were. Slick and sexy, playing late on Sunday they were the perfect end to the festival. Lil Silva takes the impassioned warmth of their new single and applies it to spikey drums and a UK Bass flavour. The reMix is loaded with intricate layers of sound, there’s so much to hear in this mix. And it’s funky too. It;s a harsh urban groove that shouldn’t sit well with Aluna’s sweet vocal, but somehow really does.
♫ AlunaGeorge – Your Drums, Your Love (Lil Silva reMix)
AlunaGeorge’s Your Drums, Your Love is released 7th October.
Your Drums, Your Love is the new track from London’s off-beat, Avant-Pop duo AlunaGeorge. Expect more of the ‘90’s R&B inspired experimental Pop that we’ve come to love from these two.
A hazy, Dub heavy, track. Your Drums, Your Love brings the heavy subs and vocal samples to play against Aluna’s sweet vocals, and their catchy ElectroPop hook. Your Drums, Your Love, the twosome’s next single, is easily the best track they have released since the incredible Analyser from last year. Not that their releases in-between haven’t been excellent, they have, but this new single, and Analyser are the bands real standouts. Your Drums, Your Love is a funky, bass heavy, three and a half minutes of beauty in darkness.

In this weeks amazing surprise track one of our long time favourite avant-Pop acts AlunaGeorge get reMixed by London MofoHiFi Disco master Bobby Tank. The result is pretty special. AlunaGeorge have just released their ‘You Know You Like It’ EP, but apparently their is still a stock of reMixes waiting to wow us. To be honest, they are going to have a hard time topping Mr. Tank’s.
Those staccato stabs. Oh those staccato stabs. That right there is pure Disco Funk, with a touch of B-Boy beats. Like the best, rich, ‘80’s dance music this is a track to appeal to groovers and Breakers alike, and to that Aluna’s sweet, and catchy, vocal and you’re on to a winner. Bright shining synths with a nostalgic feel glide over synthetic percussion and a solid Disco beat and the whole thing sounds like it’s one big crescendo. But it all comes back to those synth stabs, retro Disco gold.

AlunaGeorge’s ‘You Know You Like It’ EP is out now.
If you’re an actually regular reader, and not just a free music leecher, you’ll know that ‘round these parts we’re definitely subjects of Queen Of Hearts as well as having a big soft spot for AlunaGeorge.
AlunaGeorge’s reMix of ‘Shoot The Bullet’ was always going to be a completely different take on the track, and a different take on The Queen altogether. The Indie-ElectroPop duo’s Dub inspired, sometimes quite experimental, laid back Pop style brings a new dreamlike atmosphere to the track that’s kept in check by a hypnotic, head nodding, beat and Dubby bass. The multiple layers of solid Downtempo rhythm section, quirky melodies and synth experimentation actually does a wonderful job of highlighting QoH’s vocal chops. Awesome late night groove.
We’ve not heard enough from AlunaGeorge recently, but Baby Monster new single ‘The Fear Of Charlie Sunrise’ is the perfect track for them to reMix.
Doing that thing they do where the make thing experimental, yet melodic. Deep and dubby, yet bright and poppy, AlunaGeorge create a richly textured soundscape that showers you with snatches of vocal and waves of lush synths.
AlunaGeorge are one of the acts this year that we are defiantly keeping an eye on and with each new song they’ve dropped so far we haven’t been shaken from our belief that the duo are going to go far.
Their newest track, ‘Disobey’, leans more toward American Indie-Electro than their previous offerings but still sounds uniquely AlunaGeorge. The use of layers upon layers of toytown synths to create a full sounding production works really well and results in a sumptuous backing track that still retains an interesting level of quirkiness and charm that provides the prefect accompaniment for Aluna Francis’ vocals, which have a similar quality. Danceable and poppy whiles at the same time introverted and experimental.
