Fancy covering the new Mason & Róisín Murphy track?

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.

Beaumont reMixes Róisín Murphy


Beaumont has sent on over his reMix of SynthPop goddess Róisín Murphy’s last single ‘Momma’s Place’ and he’s knocking it out the park again.

Working the vocals perfectly, Beaumont knows exactly when to build it and when to drop it, his Nu-Disco track never overshadowing the ElectroPop original, just lifting it to greater heights.

Róisín Murphy’s new single


Highly underrated queen of UK ElectroPop Róisín Murphy returns this month with her eagerly anticipated new single ‘Orally Fixated’.

Never one to completely bow to the mainstream, Róisín litters ‘Orally Fixated’ with broken beats and cut up samples that power through a spacious 80’s sounding mix (huge reverb washed snares!) before unexpectedly dropping a wailing guitar solo!

Experimental and Pop seem like two diametrically opposed terms, but Ms. Murphy skilfully brings the two together and takes them both to the disco.
