It sounds like The Whip don’t want to be New Order anymore. Their new single, ‘Movement, is the best thing they have done for a while. A solid, upbeat, slice of Indie-Electro which is both dancefloor and sing-along friendly.
The David Aspinall directed video is like a post-apocalyptic nightmare, but with kids on the beach.

24th Feb – Newcastle @ 02 Academy 25the Feb – Leeds @ Cockpit 26th Feb – Birmingham @ Birmingham Rainbow 27th Feb – Brighton @ Green Door Store 28th Feb – London @ XOYO 29th Feb – Manchester @ Club Academy
The excellent Blue Satellite get’s his Justice on with this reMix of Monsieur Adi awesome, epic, Nu-Disco single ‘Fire Fire Fire’.
In one of the most exciting reMixes I’ve heard this month Blue Satellite takes many of the elements of Electro these days that have been annoying me, making the scene complacent and predictable, and injected them with a new energy and craftsmanship and, basically, just show up half of the Electro-House scene as lazy, talentless fools. This is how it should be done.

He’s also just reMixed The Whip’s new single ‘Keep Or Delete’ with a sound more like we would expect from Blue Satellite but still rocking a new found chainsaw synth edge to his production.
I have always had a bit of a love/hate relationship with The Whip, a times I find them to be pure Indie-Electro dancefloor genius who perfectly capture of the catchy Pop song with their own edge, at other times I find them lazy, uninspired and mediocre. I’m still excited to hear the forthcoming album though, hopefully it will fall into the former category.
In the meantime, here’s a reMix of the track ‘Secret Weapon’ by one of the best Electro producers, not just in the UK, but in the World Alex Metric. Metric completely works this mix taking the best elements of The Whip and morphs them into a peak time, hands-in-the-air, three minutes of amazingness.
