We’ve had a couple of reMixes of The XX (who, apparently, haven’t split up) drop into the electronic rumors Inbox this week, so listen up!
Dave Wrangler take on the track ‘Stars’ and ends up with an almost old school EBM powerhouse, all heavy kick drum and arpeggios which seems to counterpoint the sparkling melody line.
Popular Damage assimilate ‘Crystalised’ and produce something equally as heavy. This time, though, it’s a big Electro banger that we find with some choppy distorted lead lines worthy of Justice and floor shaking drums.
Popular Damage is a Manchester/Berlin collaboration by Nadine Raihani and Stephan Hengst that produces some particularly fine Indie-Punk-Dance-Pop.
Having gigged extensively in 2009, December became the time to drop their first EP ,‘The Royal Fly’ which features reMixing appearances by the likes of Double Dragon, Beatshaker & Blender and this one by Fukkk Offf who bring a deep electro Vs. old school house feel to the EP’s title track ‘Everybody Got Young’
