House generations new and old come together on this pounding reMix of Disclosure and AlunaGeorge White Noise (possibly our favourite Disclosure tune) by LA legend Todd Edwards. First heard on his 2013 Essential Mix, Edwards claims to have whipped the track up on a train en route to a warehouse party Disclosure had invited him to play at. There’s no leaves on this train track!
The tune is a hard-hitter. Pumping and hypnotic. Edwards crafts a looping machine of rumbling bass and hot piano stabs set to a kick drum on overdrive. Snatches of the original tune, mostly Aluna’s refrain, pepper the track, bring you back to something recognisable. At it’s core though, this is a surprisingly Teutonic slice of late night floorfiller.

The first of the reMixes of Little Boots’ genius forthcoming single ‘Headphones’ is here. And American DJ/Producer Todd Edwards gives us the first taste of a disco oriented Little boots so far from this album.
So far the recent Little Boots single have been leaning in this direction of shiny Pop and deep House, two directions we’re big fans of, but sometimes you just need to bring the funk. This reMix is laden with horn stabs, Disco licks and some nice ‘70’s flute flourishes. The thing that works best about this track is the staggered beat, which seems to work with the track and give it a driving energy. Although this reMix injects some pretty sweet Disco into Boot’s current sound, I can’t help but hope to see some reMixes from some of the real talent in Nu-Disco these days, that’s not to diminish Todd Edwards Disco-House work, but there is some real Disco gurus out there who could work wonders with this track. But if this is all the Boots funk we end up getting, then it’ll do nicely.
