Christian Rich – Better To (Gilligan Moss Mix)

Christian Rich have today premiered a remix of forthcoming single ‘Better To’ courtesy of rising Chicago producer Gilligan Moss.

Gilligan’s take on ‘Better To’ distills Balearic pop essence from the original song’s core and follows the viral success of his own ‘Choreograph’, and a likewise lauded remix of Glass Animals’ ‘Gooey’. Further, by pushing the featured vocals of DWNTWN and the Now Faith Apostolic Church Children’s Choir into the foreground, the track takes on an uplifting and euphoric air, culminating in a remix that is hard to resist.

FTSE – Nite Life (Roni Size Mix)

FTSE this week released his third E.P ‘Love Un Ltd’. The lead track from the E.P, ‘Nite Life’, has become the first ever FTSE track to be remixed and certainly it’s not everyday you hear a boxfresh Roni Size remix – the combination is lethal.

A former Mercury Music Prize winner, Roni, continues to DJ all over the globe, with visits to London, Manchester, Lisbon, Tel Aviv and Miami in the last month alone, all the while this remix has been hitting dance floors hard from the front of his box.

Classic minimalism combines with a fresh techno-soul sonic that feels free from any drum ‘n’ bass cliches. Energy teases, builds, peaks, and drops with exhilaration whilst the drum and bass pummel with purity in a way that accentuates an anthemic song that Roni obviously loves. Hands in the air, hands on hearts, and hearts in mouths!

FTSE – Utopia

FTSE‘s third E.P ‘Love Un Ltd’ will be released on 21st April and we’re delighted to now share with you the third track from the EP, ’Utopia’.

Born out of a preoccupation with “defeatism” and a world full of hypocrites, in which Manville includes himself, ‘Utopia’, is a refreshing and brutally honest commentary about how society’s acceptance that everything is fucked needs to be questioned. ‘Utopia’ is the protest song for Generation Z.

Sleigh Bells – Young Legends (Jam City Mix)

Night Slugs’ signed Jack ‘Jam City‘ Latham has always been a man of quality not quantity. Over the last year he’s been producing for Kelela’s celebrated ‘Cut 4 Me’ mix tape, as well as recently dropping his own ‘Earthly II‘ mix. Always drawing from the wider aspects of ambience JC creates a raw atmosphere for Sleigh Bells ’Young Legends’ which juxtaposes the soulful harmonic lead of Alexis Krauss with twisted pitch-shifting and an icy industrial musical palette to create extra excitement with a stripped-back aesthetic. ‘Young Legends’ will shortly be the second single to be lifted from the ‘Bitter Rivals‘ album.

FTSE – Nite Life Video

We are delighted to present to you FTSE’s video for “Nite Life (ft Femme)”, the lead track from his forthcoming EP, directed by Miles Bingham and inspired by the work of photographer, Maciej Dakowicz, and his Cardiff After Dark portraits.

These weekend night scenes are on any high street on any City in the UK; fuelled by cheap alcohol, drugs and emotions.  Everything takes place in public – drinking, fighting, kissing, crying, sex and, when energy is exhausted, sleeping. Supermen chat up Wonderwomen, somebody does press-ups topless in the rain, the hungry ones finish their portions of chips before the police stop another argument or fight. Nobody seems to worry about tomorrow, what matters is here and now. Then another week at work, until the next weekend.

‘Nite Life’s sound-scapes perfectly capture the dark brooding atmosphere found in these high street scenes.  “Empty people, stumbling through the night, Empty people, avoiding real life”.
