Mike Skinner remixes Slaves song ‘Cheer Up London’ – listen

Punk duo are currently in the middle of a UK tour

Slaves have teamed up with former frontman of The Streets Mike Skinner.

The band have collaborated with the rapper for a remix of forthcoming album track ‘Cheer Up London’. You can listen to the mix above.

The punk duo, who release their debut album ‘Are You Satisfied?’ on June 1, premiered the original version of song on BBC Radio 1 last month.

Speaking to host Huw Stephens live on air, the band said of the song’s provocative title: “We moved up to London when we were writing. Isaac came in after daily transport on the tube and he was joking around… It just sort of stuck.”

Former EastEnders actor Shaun Williamson, known for playing the character Barry Evans in the BBC soap, appeared in the video for the track.

The band claimed that their upcoming album “is directed at the people telling them to get up and do something… There is a track called ‘Do Something’.”

The duo are currently touring the UK. See the dates in full below. Slaves were recently one of four bands on the NME Awards Tour 2015 with Austin, Texas, alongside headliners Palma Violets, Fat White Family and The Wytches.

Slaves will play:

Bristol Thekla (May 13)
Nottingham Rescue Rooms (14)
Birmingham Library At The Institute (18)
Sheffield Leadmill (19)
