It’s been a while since we heard a new reMix from Sydney’s Calling in Sick, which is a shame as I used to be all over their mixes. Seriously couldn’t get enough of that shit!
So it’s awesome to see them back with this reMix of Australia’s answer to The Postal Service, Cullen’s début single, ‘Easily Impressed’ and it’s just the Calling In Sick sound that I had been missing.
You’ve got the buzzsaw synths hammering crazy solos and arpeggios and the big 80’s chords. Calling In Sick are like the 80’s hair Metal of electronic music, and that is no bad thing!

I first fell in love with Calling In Sick’s music after I heard their storming reMix of Midfield General (Feat. ViLa)’s ‘Disco Sirens’.
The Aussie duo’s latest project is this rework of Bertie Blackman’s ‘Black Cats’ and it’s got that wicked digital slap bass and huge distorted synth riffs that I loved about Calling In Sick’s previous reMixes. This’ll tear up any electro dancefloor!
