BASS: Hot Chip – Look At Where We Are (Major Lazer Remix)

LAZER-STRIKES-BACK-Vol.-1

Back in March, the mighty Major Lazer dropped their remix EP Lazer Strikes Back Vol 1. We’ve been revisiting the EP recently, and re-remembered this absolutely overlooked Hot Chip remix. Diplo and co deliver their trademark wob wob bass, sitting perfectly behind Alexis Taylor’s soothing voice. This is one of the reasons we Love Major Lazer so much – the club bangers are obviously amazing, but it’s these more laid back jams that really set him out from the crowd. Who would have thought that Trap could be so mellow? Fave bit – 3.00 mins in when it breaks down into a Reggae skank.

It only seemed a matter of time before the two powerhouses of new Bass music, Disclosure and Baauer, teamed up on something. Here’s the suitably timed remix of Disclosure’s new single You & Me by Mr ‘Harlem Shake’ Baauer, complete with rolling basslines, house breaks and a sprinkling of the sparse atmosphere of Trap.

Disclosure released their debut album ‘Settle’ this week to much critical acclaim.

Expect to hear this remix melting your face in all the clubs this weekend. We’ll certainly be playing it in our set at West London Bass Club this weekend.

Here’s the original if you haven’t heard it yet (where have you been??) – in our opinion, one of the best tracks on the new album:

BANDS: CHVRCHES – Run

chvrches 2

The very excellent CHVRCHES have dropped the third track to be taken from their super hyped upcoming debut album. Run is perhaps poppier and synth heavy than previous offerings The Mother We Share, Lies and Recover, but equally awesome. It’s been a while since we have heard a band have come out of nowhere with such strong singles, so it’s we’re going to go ahead and stamp CHVRCHES with the official BXB ‘Next Big Thing’ stamp.

Remind yourself of previous singles LiesThe Mother We Share and the mighty Recover.

And their remix of MS MR’s Hurricane:

BANDS: PHOENIX – ENTERTAINMENT (BLOOD ORANGE REMIX FT MUTYA KEISHA SIOBHAN)

Not going to lie, I’ve been following the super cool Instagram life of Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange) for a while now. Not only was this due to his many hangs with Solange, Mickey Mouse and overall swag rating of like, A MILLION, but also because during the visual stalking of said profile I noticed he was having several bro-outs with the Sugababes.

Having been a fan of the newly named ‘Mutya Keisha Siobhan’ since the ‘Overload’ days, I was eager (along with the rest of the world) to see what this comeback would bring. Would Heidi be sourly missed? Would Mutya still have the lip piercing? Would Siobhan EVER speak?

All my worries were silenced when a MKS re-work of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Swimming Pools’ surfaced a couple of weeks back, and the three part sugary harmony was still there in all it’s glory. This second installment from the new SB line up is a Blood Orange remix of Phoenix’s ‘Entertainment’ where the girls get all sassy on the vocals. Check it out, and love it.

BASS: ROX – I DON’T BELIEVE (DON DIABLO REMIX)

We’re not 100% what happened to this remix – was it unofficial? Why has it been taken down from all the official channels? It is SUCH A BANGER.

Either way it was one of our fave remixes from 2010 – kick ass vocals from London soul upstart Rox and Dutch remixer extraordinaire Don Diablo results in a total toe tapping 100% bandsxbass approved bangarang.

Don Diablo has recently been remixing for the very awesome UK electro poppers The Other Tribe, including the remix from the rather good track Skirts.

Rox? She appears to have released two albums since this track. We’ll give them a spin and get back if they are any good.
