Now, with next Friday almost anon us, Rex himself drops his latest mix to get you warmed up. It;’s synth heaven, what more can be said. it’s the best RoboDisco, or as Rex would put it “Electronic Pulse Wave Disco”. Deep beats, acid burbles, sweeping synths, and a machine groove. Awesome!

And a bit of Bronski Beat!”.

Just like Rex’ version, you can definitely tell the is is the Kris Menace end of the collaboration. ‘Kris’ Club Mix’ is a pure dancefloor attack, accentuating the screaming rave synths. Less introvert that the original, this mix strips the tune back to it’s basic dancefloor DNA and builds upon everything that will have them with their hands in the air.
♫ Kris Menace & Rex The Dog – POW! (Kris’ Club Mix)
Unlike Rex’s reMix, which was pure Rex, you can really hear the meeting of styles with this original version, which actually works well. What you have here is a big dancefloor drone of a track, a tune that builds such nervous energy that when it finally breaks the crowd are gonna’ go mental. Personally I can’t wait to hear this in a club, it’s gonna’ go off!
♫ Kris Menace & Rex The Dog – POW!
Kris Menace & Rex The Dog’s ‘POW!’ is our later in October.
Pleasure Cruiser – BREED Podcast 9 (The Horror) = This is right up my street! In celebration of the next of Rex The Dog’s ‘Electronic Pulse Wave Disco’ nights BREED, BREED residents Pleasure Cruiser have knocked together 45 mins of rockin’ 80’s boogie beats!

Y’know, I wouldn’t have immediate paired Rex The Dog and Kris Menace together, but after hearing their new joint single, ‘Pow!’, the resultant tune is as natural as it is massive sounding. A meeting in the middle between their two sounds.
Rex’s ‘Casio Mix’, however is pure Rex. Analog Electro Disco as only Rex does best and the riff from ‘Pow!’ is perfectly suited to a pure Rex remix, you can tell he had a lot of fun with this track, you know how he loves to be surrounded with analog synths just jamming. After hearing the whole EP this reMix is the real stand out track for me.
