New Look – ‘The Ballad (Koreless Remix)’
Lifted from their forthcoming debut album on K7!, Canadian duo New Look (Yep, like that shop that sells diamante jeans) return with this electronic slowie. Despite being described by the band as a very personal track (“it’s a message to someone we know and we would never want them to find out. It’s too personal” says vocalist Sarah Ruba) they’ve found the guts to hand it over to UK remixer Koreless here. The Welsh producer (now based in Glasgow) makes the tearjerking Ballad even sadder, turning Ruba’s sweet vocals into forlorn robotics. Listen to the original here.
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – ‘Trouble (Chad Valley Remix)’
Another young remixer, Oxford’s Chad Valley aka Hugo Manuel, has also been busy recently. Following the premiere of his own track ‘Now That I’m Real (How Does It Feel)’ yesterday, he gets to work on glitter cannon dance-act Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Possibly inspired by Orlando Higginbottom’s love of feathery head dresses, he fills the upbeat terrace track ‘Trouble’ with the sounds of birds flitting in and out of his trademark twinkles.
