Oh how I have been enjoying La Roux‘s track Bulletproof which is stripped of it’s bubbly Eurythmics style synths and taken into deep Massive Attack-inspired territory by Nacey. Love the piano and string breakdown in the middle. This time I will be Bulletproof. Still trying to figure out how to get my hair to stick up like that…
The only thing better than Felix Da Housecat paying homage to Prince would be a real collaboration between the two! I will still keep wishing, but in the meantime we’ve got the album cut and a great remix of Felix’s new single We All Wanna Be Prince by theAmplid for ya.
Amateur and professional DJ’s alike get excited! There is a remix contest going on right now for this single, and you can download the stems for free here. Don’t forget to send us your mix when your finished! Thanks to theAmplid for getting there first!

“…remixing Peter, Bjorn and John was a thrill for us and we wanted to make sure that we didn’t just try to ape what they were doing. The vocal lines are so strong that it was easy to build a dance track around them, and the acoustic piano in the back end was our way of bringing out the sadness in the voice while still keeping the track bouncing. And somehow, even though we sped everything up, our version comes out twice as long. Dance music: go figure.”
They vocoded all over the chorus, aah! Oh wait, there it is!
A lighter version of MGMT, French Horn Rebellion hit the Brooklyn scene with Up All Night. These guys produced MGMT’s debut EP, fans will hear the similarities straight off.
Video was filmed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. If you’ve been even once, you’ll recognize exactly where they are. I’m not sure why it makes me a bit uncomfortable. Probably because he’s got my sunglasses on!
Who isn’t Nervous In New York? This new track from Music For Animals is taking me somewhere back in time, where The Whispers could still Rock Steady and Martin Fry was shooting Poison Arrow‘s through our hearts. Remixed by wallpaper., I feel instant nostalgia when I hear it.
