Klaxons want to work with Dr Dre

The band want to make an R&B record

Klaxons want to work with Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg.

The band, who have just reelased debut LP ‘Myths OF The Near Future’, have said they want to make an R&B record in the future.

Jamie Reynolds said: “The most interesting thing for us would be to work with Dr Dre or Snoop Dogg.

“We haven’t done a deal in America but we got to a point a couple of weeks ago where we were talking about one – and I don’t know whether or not it’s gonna happen (they are now actually signed toRinse/DGC).

“But if we did do that deal we would probably jeopardise our future working with Dr Dre.”

James Righton told MTV: “We would very much like to make an R&B record. If we could afford it.”

The band are currently on the Shockwaves NME Awards Indie Rave tour with CSS, The Sunshine Underground and New Young Pony Club.
