This is epic. Welsh Electronica duo Man Without Country are set to follow the release of their début album Foe with an official album of their remix work, featuring reworks they’ve done for the likes of M83, Moby, Chad Valley, Active Child and this absolute monster of a track for Miike Snow.
Man Without Country (which is a bit mean to Wales really) deliver a remix of Miike Snow’s Pretender that manages to be both moody and exhilarating. With a strong mid-90s vibe to it, the track is loaded with big beats and growling synths, like Depeche Mode meets The Crystal Method, alongside Miike Snow’s heartfelt vocal. the result is a classic Indie-Dance track, just the right amount of melodic, just the right amount of raucous, that bodes very well for the rest of the reMix album.

The ElectroPop name on everyone’s lips right now, Glasgow three piece Chvrches (yes, we’ve all given in to the ‘v’ now…) have produced their first reMix. Time to see if their amazing production can hold up when dealing with other peoples songs as they take on ultraísta’s Gold Dayzz (for the fain of heart amongst our readership, I’ll save you the tension and let you know that yes, yes it does hold up).
ultraísta are a three piece with some kind of production like to Radiohead, I’ll be honest, we hadn’t heard of them, although further investigation revealed some quite nice indeed Downtempo and Electronica. enter Chvrches, though, to spice things up a little and open the track up to some of their rich, emotive electronics and they inject the tune with a roaring synth bass, snappy beats and melodies sharp as a knife. The hazy vocals of the original drift in and out of pulsating arpeggios as the whole song build and build to a truly euphoric finale. So…Chvrches can reMix too then…good to know.
