I’m still a bit bleary from the weekend, so what better way to bust the cobwebs out of my head than with the re-release of Designer Drugs ‘Riot’/’Drop Down’ on IHEARTCOMIX.
‘Drop Down’ was easily my favorite straight-up banger of last year (even making our top 20 of 2009!) and the re-release features all new reMixes from Mustard Pimp and BeatauCue. To celebrate the release we can throw your way these two reMixes, not featured on the single, by Savage skulls and StereoHeroes. Savage Skulls take on ’Drop Down’ is a, distorted kick drum, brutal banger equally matched by StereoHeroes dark rave version of ‘Riot’.
Underhall are a brand new production duo from the south of France.
Comprised of Lucas and Roger, Underhall cite amongst their influences Electro, early House music and the video game 8-bit sounds.
On The Fruit Records have picked the guys up and are releasing their début EP ,‘Digithall’, which features reMixes from the likes of Freak You, Bestrack and StereoHeroes and these three we can preview for you here. Bestrack bring a brilliant, absolutely huge Electro-House mix to the table, loaded with chainsaw synths. Freak You’s version is more epic sounding and Stereoheroes is a low down dirty Electro banger.
Getting some major airplay in Europe is French ElectroPop trio Pony Pony Run Run’s latest single ‘Hey You’. The accompanying reMixes are a really great crop of tunes.
Pony Pony Run Run themselves have dropped a stunning dance reMix. Heavier than the original it’s a ice cold Nu-Disco/ElectroPop mashup.
StereoHeroes have fun with their reMix, warping sound and bringing an old school dance flavour before dropping the Disco riffs while sayCet go completely the opposite direction and deliver an ambient, chilled noise lullaby that sounds like the world winding down.
