Yelle, easily one of the best live acts I have seen this year, is embarking on a US tour. If they are playing near you, especially if it’s quite an intimate venue, I strongly suggest a night out.
In celebration of tour embarking here’s a couple of reMixes of ‘Que Veux-Tu’ by Eumig & Chinon and Kap10Kurt. Both have been kicking about for a while now but both are seriously worth your listening minutes. E&C get sweet and soulful with their Disco Funk version of the track while the ElectroPop master Kap10Kurt works his mysterious cosmic Electro ways.

Kap10Kurt has just dropped his new single ‘Speed Demon’ on Work It Baby. It’s a full on soaring, retro synth, Nu-Disco/Electro powerhouse with a massive Pop chorus.
Oh, and a genius video too!
In the single you’ll also find this epic reMix by the man Justin Faust, with this huge 80’s riff you can#t help but fall in love with!

Fresh from mixing duties on Erasure’s re-release of ‘A Little Respect’, ElectroPop/Nu-Disco innovator Kap10Kurt has turned his attention to a whole crop of classic 80’s tracks making them prime fodder for an DJs set.
The man has kindly let us share with you his awesome take on Pet Shop Boys’ ‘Suburbia’ (my personal favourtie PSB track!). Like all good reworks of songs this legendary it keeps the song srtucture pretty much intackt, after all it’s something ingrained in the popular psyche, but brings it crashing into the 21st century with a kicking new beat and bassline and washed with some lush retro synths. Add in a few edits and cuts here and there and what you’re left with is a storming dancefloor track that’s also a classic anthem. That’s a win/win all round!

You can find the rest of his 80’s reworks on his SoundCloud page.
Kap10Kurt also has a, slightly terrifying, message for electronic rumors readers:
The Kap10’ is currently gearing up for the release of his new single, ‘Speed Demon’, which drops in January 2011 on Kris Menace’s label Work It Baby and features reMix skills from none other than Justin Faust. If that has you salivating, check out Kap10Kurt’s previous singles:

Top reMixers Ocelot drop their artist album on Wall Of Sound soon and in gearing up for the release have roped in talent to reMix for them. Dreamwave pioneers Kap10Kurt take on their track ‘Our Time’
We’ve not heard anything from Kap10Kurt for a while but this reMix makes up for it. Big 80’s synth stabs and vocoders work the hell out of this Nu-Disco madness.
