Hot on the heels of the storming release of her sophomore album Nocturnes, the queen of ElectroPop Little Boots has snuck out this funky little reMix of the album’s preceding single Broken Record. Not on the official release, this rework comes from LA duo Cosmic Kids.
Cosmic Kids bring a little Tropical flavour and dreamy, laid back, LA Disco vibe to the track. Never veering to far into full on poolside Disco thought, The duo keep things pretty Housey, with a burbling Acid bassline and pumping beat. Cavernous synths swirl around the track, weaving themselves in and out of ghostly vocal snatches, while the overall moody groove is offset with bright, shimmering chimes. Lush, spaces Disco/House sounds right here.

Out today on DFA is Holy Ghost! reMix package for ‘Hold My Breath’, one of our favourite tracks from their storming self-titled début album.
Tiger & Woods deliver a synth Funked up with a touch of Acid and a hypnotic groove. Laden with ‘80’s Electro stabs and clocking in at just under ten minutes the track is almost a meditation on dance. Cosmic Kids’ deep Disco take on the tune is full of ominous analog synths, but keeps the tune at it’s Poppy core amidst all the moody warehouse sounds. To be honest, neither is a patch on the original, but do make a nice compliment.
