There’s now over 200 reMixes of this track floating around the internet, after one of the largest reMix competitions I have ever seen, but this has to be one of the best. There some amazing reMixes entered into the competition (I spent a whole day on SoundCloud going through them!) but this one really works for me. Cutting up and disjointing the original in an Electro stylee, but not so much to take away from the song itself. It’s a pretty crazy banger with sweet sounding retro synths battling with distorted 8-bit sounds for your attention.
Minitel Rose, those purveyors of the smoothest of French SynthPop & Dreamwave, are finally gearing up to drop their second album ‘Atlantic’ this June, and that (if you didn’t know) is an exiting thing! Their 2008 début ‘The French Machine’ still gets weekly play here and was an important record in terms of introducing a smoother French Electro sound to the masses and drawing wider attention to the Dreamwave movement being spearheaded by the Valerie Collective.
Listening to ‘Wild Birds’, the first track from the album, just wets the appetite even more. Their Electro-House tinged Disco SynthPop is in full effect on this energetic, anthemic track. It’s retro synth chords and uplifting vocals seriously bode well for this album being the soundtrack to the summer. electronic rumors fave Barretso give the track a shot of adrenaline with his reMix, busting out his best pumping percussion and shimmering synths to create a powerhouse of a reMix. Kolt13 brings a Disco/Chiptune soundclash to his version, and intricate mixture of Nintendo madness and Discoball funk.
Minitel Rose look like they are going to release an awesome album, with some awesome remixes. Can’t wait!

So many good club tunes and reMixes surface each week we can’t (and wouldn’t) cover them all, so this is a round up of some of the best from the week that we didn’t have time to dedicate individual posts to…
