UK Disco don MiGHty mOUse is back in business with this tasty reMix of Mason’s Gotta’ Have You Back. The Dutch duo’s new single features vocal work from Hercules And Love Affair collaborator Rouge Mary and is itself a pounding Electro stormer with soul. Listen to MiGHty mOUse groove the track up right nice below while you marvel at just how much Mason enjoy their little cartoon monsters.
Given such a musically tough track to work with, MiGHty mOUse keeps some of that abrasive grind in his reMix. A departure from his typical spaced out Disco goodness, the man flexes his Electro-House muscles with a gritty bassline and a sidechained pump. But don’t think for one minute that means the Disco has left the room, MiGHty mOUse keeps things 100% funky and utterly infectious. MiGHty mOUse will be announcing his new single soon, featuring one of his “favourite vocalists” which, if it’s what we think it is, is flipping awesome! Trust us.

Dutch duo Mason are back with a new single, ‘Superimposer’.
It’s a track that combines some pretty formulaic Electro-House with a nice off-beat vocal which eventually takes the track to a place where it works, but it’s in some of the reMixes where the track really gets to shine. Arveene & Misk deliver a robotic house mix full of interesting little idiosyncrasies and a hypnotic beat. Zombie Disco Squad, use the vocals minimally, but that the best elements of the original and producer more of a well rounded, deep, dancefloor track.

‘Superimposer’ is released 5th March on Mason’s own Animal Language imprint.
I love Rex The Dog’s recent burbling Acid/ElectroPop reMixes, this reMix of Mason’s ‘Little Angel’ is the best so far.
It’s a deep 80’s jam at heart, the 808 and Acid bassline are pure Summer Of Love, but Rex has expertly layered over the top a shimmering and think ElectroPop tune. The result is a Moroder-esque DiscoPop tune of epic proportions complete with wailing guitar. Vocals on the track are provided by Aqualung which are kept largely intact in this mix, adding to the power and drive of ‘Little Angel’/
Mason and Róisín Murphy’s ‘Boadicea’ is finally out! It seems like ages it’s been slated for release.
The reMix package for the single boasts an awesome line up, including the amazing Evil nine and this killer mix by some of our favourite LA ElectroPoppers Human Life, who appear to have gone for the full on Chicago House workout, complete with massive stabs and acid burbling. If anything can be said about this reMix it’s that it’s fun as hell and commands you to move your feet!

While Oliver $’s reMix is a deep, deep, deep techy House track that is aimed squarely at late night dancefloor action.
In a world where reMix competitions have become commonplace it’s nice to see someone mixing it up a little bit.
Mason (they of the awesome track with Princess Superstar a few years ago) are releasing a new single featuring the vocal talents of none other than ElectroPop queen Róisín Murphy and to celebrate they are inviting their listeners to show off their interpretations of the track. The winner of the contest, which they are calling a ‘Refurb competition’, will get their version released through Mason’s own Animal Language imprint. A Refurb is, in their own words “…not remixes in the usual sense but completely new interpretations of the original track done in any style that takes their fancy.”, back in the real world we call that a ‘cover version’, but semantics aside it could be a chance to have a little fun with the track.
You can listen to the original here, it’s actually a really cool tune, Róisín’s dreamlike vocals are always welcome.
