[CDG] [Remix] Maker / Missing (Cave Painting remix)





Maker are a new band from Brighton who have popped up on a few UK blogs in recent weeks, and they’re a band with real promise. It’s difficult to pull off this brand of guitar pop without sounding cheesy, but they do it really well.The most recent instalment is the Cave Painting remix of their song ‘Missing’. Cave Painting have taken an already very strong original, stripped it back, gone all xx on it and then stuck some wicked percussion over the second half. It’s brilliant! [#]

Hot Chip - Night and day (2012) 

Night And Day is the first single from Hot Chip’s forthcoming album, In Our Heads out June 4th. The single is a piece of classic Hot Chip weird-ass superfunk disco, driven by a menacing yet supremely danceable rubberized bassline. It's the sound Prince would be making had he grown up just south of the Thames. It's Zapp not Zappa. The single will be available on 12” and via digital download and will come with a remix from the 2 Bears featuring Trim as well as an exclusive b-side track entitled Jelly Babies.
