Dutch Funkmeister Shook’s latest reMix is of The Ting Tings’ forthcoming single ‘Hang It Up’.
It should be unsurprising by now, but Shooks version of the tune is pure Electro Boogie gold. Classic Moog-esque bass synths dance in and out of slap bass licks to create this funky, undulating undercurrent to the track, leaving room for vocal snatches and some of the most intricate, complex programming I have heard in ages. Shook continues to amaze.

IndiePop twosome The Ting Tings are gearing up to release their second album after the massive success of 2008’s ‘We Started Nothing’ and those singles it spawned.
It looks like this time round the duo have taken a more ElectroPop route, the results are actually really cool. Check out the first single from the new album, ‘Hands’, it’s a pretty slick slice of danceable electronic Pop injected with a dose of The Ting Tings’ feisty quirkiness and their trademark sing-a-long choruses.

Retro/Grade have done an excellent job with their reMix, a nice retro version complete with electro toms and two finger basslines. I almost thought it was turning into ‘Smalltown Boy’ at one point!
