Lenno reMixes The Knocks & Fred Falke

the-knocks-fred-falke1

Finnish producer Lenno is definitely one of our favourite producers working right now. His big room Nu-Disco sound, from a club point of view, is absolutely killer. When we heard he would be reMixing The Knocks & Fred Falke’s Geronimo, easily one of the tracks of the year, we were more than interested, and the track lived up to our expectation, being our favourite of the reMixes.

It’s up on Lenno’s SoundCloud now, so if you’re somehow one of the few stragglers who haven’t picked up the single at Beatport, this’ll convince you. Lenno brings his big sound to an already massive tune and the result is dancefloor genius. I hate comparing Lenno to Madeon, but if Madeon is fucking off to join his new Brostep friends, then Lenno is the man who’s name should be on your lips. No-one drops huge, complex Disco House like Lenno. I can’t wait to play this track out, a slice of funky euphoria.

The Knocks & Fred Falke’s ‘Geronimo’

the-knocks-fred-falke

We’re probably preaching to the converted here, I suspect most of you have already picked up a copy of The Knocks & Fred Falke amazing collaboration, Geronimo, which is already available at Beatport. Easily a contender for the tune of the year, the original, and arguably the best, mix is now available for your listening pleasure to convince you, if you haven’t already, that you need to pick this up.

What can se say about this tune? It needs to be heard, it’s massive. A grinding, funky five minutes of pure dancefloor anthem. You can hear both The Knocks and Fred Falke in there, the track has a The Knocks groove made Falk style massive. A catchy vocal hook you’ll be singing all day, reels you in while the huge Disco, with a Pop sheen, will just destroy you. Essential stuff.

The Knocks & Fred Falke reMixed by Louis La Roché

The Knocks & Fred Falke

The Knocks & Fred Falke forthcoming Kitsuné released collaboration, Geronimo, is going to be huge. Released next month the entire single, the original and three reMixes, is packed with danceflor destroying work. Our favourite is probably the Lenno reMix, but coming a very close second would be this mix from Louis La Roché that premiered last weekend on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show.

La Roché’s mix heads straight into robo Disco territory. Bringing the Funk to the tune with intricate cut up chords and booming basslines. He really brought his A-Game to the reMix, and also got more into a big Electro frame of mind that we would expect from La Roché. The result being a three-way combination between La Roché’s funky Disco, Big room Electro and the original tracks epic, anthemic, qualities. This one’s going to be huge, but then the whole singe is!

Little Boots’ ‘Headphones’

Little Boots

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to hear five or six new tracks from our reigning ElectroPop princess Little Boots’ forthcoming new album, and believe me they were all strong contenders for single material. At a guess though, I would say this track, ‘Headphones’ will be next up for single treatment, being premiered on Radio1 is a big of a giveaway.

Produced with New York’s Disco duo The Knocks, when she played it live Victoria explained that the song was about going to a disco only to find out the music is shit, sticking your headphones on and having a boogie in your own little world (which leads to awkward moments when the disco music stops). To be honest, after a couple of amazing, but pretty underground singles, this is the track that is going to propel Boots back into the public consciousness. Classic DiscoPop and just shows victoria;’s talent for straddling the underground dance/shiny Pop line with ease, something now many can accomplish. This summer she’ll have us all singling!

♫ Little Boots – Headphones (Radio Rip)

‘Headphones’ will, we presume, be out soon. It’ll be interesting to see who is up for reMix duties.

The Knocks reMix Jon Fratelli into an Electro beast

Jon Fratelli, who is, unsurprisingly, a member of Indie Rockers The Fratellis, is about to release his first proper solo single, titles, ‘Santo Domingo’.

‘Why should you care?’ I hear you ask. I’ll tell you why, ‘cos this reMix by The Knocks is stunning, even worth the cost of the single. Fratelli’s Rock ‘N’ Roll swagger is prefect fodder for the NYC duo to work some piano Disco/Electro-Rock magic on this track. It’s a driving, powerful track that keeps the guitar riff subtly in the background to underpin some massive 90’s style dance chords and some heavy bass synth. It’s a pity that this kind of tune mostly  turns up in reMixes. There are a few bands I can think of that make this kind of stuff but they are few and far between, it generally only occurs  when really talented reMixers meet proper Indie-Rockers. So enjoy it whilst you can!

Jon Fratelli – Santo Domingo (The Knocks reMix) (Master)

‘Santo Domingo’ is released 18th April on Island.

Monsieur Adi reMixes The Knocks

Italian producer and reMixer extraordinaire Monsieur Adi has worked his magic on The Knocks new single.

Released this week, ‘Make Is Better’ is a feelgood summery Indie-Disco-Pop tune that is given the French touch by Adi who allows the track to funk along to a soaring crescendo. That final synth solo is the killer!

Ellie Goulding reMixes galore!

Ellie Goulding02

Ellie Goulding’s ‘Under the Sheets’ dropped yesterday and is destined for major success, the music blogosphere is awash with reMixes.

Here’s some of the best that have landed in the electronic rumors inbox. Baby Monster’s mix is making waves and it’s a pounding retro styled pop affair while The Knocks produce a Electro jam with a wicked big synth bassline. Pariah’s spacey Dubstep builds to an almost garage beat for it’s finale.
