[Audio] Man Without Country reMixes Miike Snow

Miike Snow

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.

Man Without Country’s RMX album is released 4th March but available to listen to on Spotify from 25th February.

Flight Facilities reMix Miike Snow

Miike Snow

We’re not quite as Flight Facilities mad as the rest of the world seems to be, we like them a lot but feel they tend to be a bit hit and miss, but when they hit the really do hit. and this track hits. Which is all the more odd to find out that this reMix for Miike Snow’s last single, The Wave, was finished back in May and FF never heard back about it, to this day they don’t know if they missed the deadline, or it was rejected, or what?

If it was rejected then Miike Snow’s label are idiots, this is a stunning peice of deep Disco. Everything about it is so understated, which makes the whole more impressive. Driven by a deep deep bassline and subtly piano (no crashing 90’s House riffs here), the reMix keeps the original song intact, but draws it to a laid back place of steady groove. The music is just the right side of bombastic to highlight in seriousness of the lyrics, but keeping things funky as hell.

‘The Wave’ is taken from the Swedish trio’s excellent new album, ‘Happy To You’. The clip is nice and weird and actually one of the better video’s we’ve seen in a while.

Miike Snow’s new album, ‘Happy To You’, is out this week.

Miike Snow & Lykke Li

Miike Snow

Do you get the feeling that Miike Snow are pulling a Baby Monster and streaming the whole new album in the weeks running up to it’s release? Three tracks in two weeks?

Anyway, this ones a bit different, ‘Black Tin Box’ features Lykke Li, who you know we love a bit of, and it’s not a upbeat Indie-Electro track. What it is though, is a pretty powerful, brooding slice of dark ElectroPop with hints of The Knife. Although Lykke is painfully underused ‘Black Tin Box’ is a nice example of icy Scandinavian Pop.

Miike Snow’s ‘Paddling Out’


Miike Snow have given us a second taste of what to expect from their forthcoming new album.

‘Paddling Out’ is rough and ready sing-a-long, piano led ElectroPop. It’s like ElectroPop got drunk and lost it’s inhibitions at an early ‘90’s House club. I’m feeling this one a lot more than the Swedish trio’s previous new track, ‘Devil’s Work’. Catchy as hell, ‘Paddling Out’ just makes you want to jump up.

Miike Snow return

Miike Snow

Is this the first time you’ve had internet access in the last 12 hours? In that case let me break the news to you,  Miike Snow are back with a brand new track.

‘Devil’s Work’ is the first new tune from the Swedish trio to lead into their new album release in March. Full of pomp and grandeur, ‘Devil’s Work’ layers horns and a big string section over the repetitive piano riff and electronic noodling. whilst it hasn’t got the bounce of catchiness of ‘Animal’ or ‘Silvia’, it is a pretty majestic comeback.

Miike Snow & I Blame Coco


Sting’s kid Eliot Sumner, also known as I Blame Coco,  has been getting a lot of blog inches recently, especially with the forthcoming release of her début single ‘Caesar’ which features Scandinavian SynthPop queen Robyn.

What’s interested me is this reMix by one of our favourite acts Miike Snow (who she’s also working with) as they drop heavy beats and a really deep Electronic sound.
