So, you’ve already hear the Mickey and Hey Champ! reMixes of Housse De Racket’s forthcoming ‘Château’ single, here’s the one we’ve been waiting for, London’s ElectroPop champion’s JBAG take the stage.
True to their ‘Hot Pop’ reMixes of old, JBAG bring a deep, rounded, funk to the mix and their ElectroPop sheen. this is definitely my favourite of the reMixes so far, that bassline is so early ‘90’s DancePop yet somehow evolves into something more Disco as the track progresses. This track just makes you want to hit the dancefloor and reminds us why we fell in love with JBAG and Boombox back in 2007/08.
‘Chateau’ is one of the highlight of their ‘Alésia’ album and the reMix package looks like it’s going to be storming. This reMix from Chicago gang Hey Champ! is the sweetest of sweet big Disco sounds. Big ‘70’s Disco stabs and wicked guitar licks make up the groove quota for this tune while the whole thing is made massive with thick, lush strings. The original vocal is treated to a fair amount of chopping, which Hey Champ! use perfectly to keep the energy up.
Belgian producer Mickey may be a relative newcomer but he always brings his A-game, as he does on his latest mix, Housse De Racket’s forthcoming new single, ‘Château’.
Taken from Housse De Racket’s amazing ‘Alésia’ album, It’s a cool track to begin with, but when Mickey lays down that analog bass, like he does, the track becomes indie robo Disco gold. The understated blend of the bass, a subtle piano and lush strings with Housse De Racket’s Parisian Indie vocals make for a tack that seems not to try to impress, but does so naturally. It’s going to be quite a year for this Belgian producer, one that will see the name Mickey gaining more and more traction.
Parisian Indie-ElectroPopsters Housse De Racket’s ‘Roman’ has been knocking around for a while now, with q few reMixes to it’s name. Is there room for one more? There is if it comes from the Canadian who’s name is on every-blog-body’s lips, Robotaki.
Robotaki goes big with this mix, as he tends to do. There’s some really fat sounds lurking around here, both in bass and chords, spacing out the track. With a touch of Funk, a touch of the epic Indie vibe of the original and a touch of dancefloor smash worming their way into Robotaki’s full ElectroPop sound, the whole kinda’ lifts the track, bringing out the emotion, and the groove, of the song.
Oh Oliver, you crazy Olivers, can you do no wrong? These two’s latest reMix, of Housse De Racket’s latest single ‘Roman’, will easy to into your weekends partying.
Every second of this mix provides instant gratification, there is an immediacy to the feel good synths that counteracts with the laid back Disco backing. The Indie-Electro original is a good tune, but this reMix takes it to the next level…and on to the dancefloor…in hot pants.
Beaumont, the hardest working man in unsigned showbusiness, is back with another storming reMix, this time for Housse De Racket.
Featuring on the UK release of their ‘Forty Love’ album, which comes bundled with a bonus reMix CD, his version of ‘Dans L’Avion’ has all the elements we love about a Beaumont reMix. That smooth Nu-Disco he has become synonymous with subtly brushed with a bit of 8-bit chaos.
French Indie synth wizards Housse De Racket are releasing their début album, ‘Forty Love’, for the first time in the UK later this month packaged up with an extra CD choc full of reMixes.
One of the reMixes on the ‘Bonus reMix Edition’ is this blistering tune from the north’s finest Dreamwave export Edwin Van Cleef. His take on HDR’s ‘Champions’ is a smooth, feel good, jam that immerses you in synth goodness.
Parisian Electro-House/Indie-Electro act Housse De Racket are releasing yet another reMix package for their much hammered, much reMixed party anthem ‘Oh Yeah!’.
The package is seriously top quality, here are just three examples of what to expect. Hidden Cat turn in a brilliant space Disco mix that keeps the killer riff but layers it will analog noodling. Jensen Sportag brings us quite an eclectic summer chiller but the highlight so far has to be Walter Sobcek’s slick retro Pop mix which is, one one word, epic!
