The Presets; New video and single news!!!

Yesterday, The Presets premièred their new video for the upcoming single ‘If I Know You’:

The video is directed by Eva Husson (who directed the acclaimed short for M83’s Kim and Jessie)

‘If I Know You’ is possibly my favourite track off of last years, absolutely stunning, ‘Apocalypso’ so I’m chuffed it’s getting single treatment, even more so if you take into account the reMix line up, which includes Tom Middleton, Via Tania & Jori Hulkkonen, Chaim, Heartbreak and Vince Clarke!!!

‘If I Know You’ will be out in late march on Modular Recordings, more news as we have it.

If there is anyone out there stupid enough not to have The Presets’ last two albums, they can rectify the matter at the vendors below:

Pip’s back! Well…re-released anyway, with a shit-load of new reMixes.

On March 2nd Modular Recordings re-release Ladyhawke‘s  ‘Paris Is Burning’ on 7″ and digital with piles of new reMixes by such names as Matthew Dekay, Simmons & Christopher and Innerpartysystem. The digital format also includes that cover of Britney Spears’ ‘Womanizer’.

Try this taster of the Simmons & Christopher mix for size.

Suits you sir?

In a break from tradition the cover features a dog (or wolf?) rather than the usual cats…I get the feeling she’s fucking with us!

You don’t need me to harp on about how good Ladyhawke’s début album is again…it just is!

Pip gotta’ eat y’all:

Ladyhawke: New ‘Back Of The Van’ reMix!

ladyhawke

Ever since I started this blog, all those 9 long days ago!, I have been waiting for the excuse to blog-the-shit-out-of Ladyhawke…and now my chance has come thanks to Electro newcomer KiD COLA. KiD’s reMix is a serious Electro Bass juggernaut, check it out:

So, what can I say about Pip Brown A.K.A. Ladyhawke that hasn’t already been said? I don’t want to be flippant with the word ‘genius’, but Ladyhawk’s self-titled début album for the almighty Modular Recordings is genius!

Easily one of my favourite albums of last year, top 5 at least! Pip is a world class songwriter and the album takes it’s 80’s influences without exaggerating or parodying them. I couldn’t choose a favourite track from the album, I think any tune on there would convince you to buy it. So have a taster, with the opening song ‘Magic’.
