There are a couple of reasons why we really shouldn’t be writing this post. First off, we’re not exactly the biggest fans of remixes because the popularity of the remix back from the days of Justice seem to have created a culture where a remix is just a method of promotion for record labels, rather than a creative outlet for artists. We’re also grumpy Radiohead doom-mongerers who haven’t exactly been subscribing to the euphoric disco/electro hybrid that Australia’s happy inhabitants have been pumping out recently.
However… If there’s one exception to our ban on happy Australian music, then it’s Strange Talk. And their new remix of Wolf Gang’s “Dancing With The Devil” is, actually, a perfect match for his music. So we’re pretty confident that, yeah, sure, it’s some great promotion for both artists, but if they were to choose who to remix/remixed by, they couldn’t do any better than to choose each other. It might not change the world but, whatever, it’s summer (almost), sunny (almost) and (almost) brilliant.
Whilst we’re on the subject, we’d better be conscientious and let you know a couple of potentially useful things that you should know. First off, if you want to make a premature judgement of debut album “Suego Faults” then a 5-track sampler is just below, featuring 5 tracks that we’ve already heard, with the production pumped up slightly subtly. But if you’d rather judge him by all of his material then, yes, he’s still performing at LSC, for which wristbands are still available. Can’t complain about that.
