Lights & Music (Superdiscount Remix) (2.5)
Lights & Music (Boys Noize Happy Birthday remix) (3.5)
OK, I bought this for Boys Noize, who are ace, and not for Cut Copy, who I know diddleysquat about. Hey, its a remix single out on Modular so its got to be good, right? Um, well, its not great, until the juddery keyboard riff over the electro bass which is pretty cool.
As soon as the Boys Noize mix starts up its obviously in a different league, there are Daft Punk cartoon breaks, handclaps, cool dulled bass drum treatments and its all fun. Its not brilliant but then the original isn't fantastic so no big quibble, so it'll do just fine.
Oh and this old thing...
Atoms for Peace (Four Tet remix) (3.5)
While he's here can I just give a shout out for the Four Tet EP - Ringer - which is the best thing he's done in bloody ages.
This remix isn't straying much from the original except for a change…
