Hot Chip dévoile des remixes de "Down"

En avril, Hot Chip annonçait son nouvel et huitième album Freakout/Release dont la sortie est prévue pour le 19 août, en partageant un avant-goût avec son single  “Down”. Le groupe a le plaisir de dévoiler aujourd’hui trois remixes de ce titre.

Tout d'abord, le duo Sworn Virgins, signé sur Deewee, le label de Soulwax, livre un remix absolument épique. Il évoque l'atmosphère enivrante, moite et sexy du dancefloor, alors que les gémissements caractéristiques de Clams Baker (Warmduscher) sont lovés autour d'un beat martelant et du sample de l’Universal Togetherness Band sur lequel repose le titre original de Hot Chip. Le deuxième remix est réalisé par l'artiste Nyra, originaire de Sheffield et DJ résident chez Adonis. Il ajoute une teinte italo-disco à "Down", l'amenant dans le monde synth-pop de Bobby O et des Pet Shop Boys. Quant au dernier remix, il est l'œuvre de Selector Dub Narcotic, alias Calvin Johnson (Beat Happening), qui ralentit et déforme l'original en y ajoutant des couches de vocoder, tout en répétant "Hot Chip has the answer".


Le groupe, composé de Owen Clarke, Al Doyle, Joe Goddard, Felix Martin (absent de la photo) et Alexis Taylor se produira en France le 8 octobre à L’Olympia.
