Sweden’s very own Johan Agebjorn lends his hand at remixing this track that was originally released by Don Juan Dracula back in 2005 and gets some help with added vocals from Sally Shapiro. The original track was a little too angst ridden for me, but this remix takes it to more of a synthpop arena, which I love.
I love the electronic Everything but the Girl (EBTG) albums (wasn’t a big fan of the acoustic pop albums, but that’s just me) , I love most of the remixes by Ben Watt (one half of EBTG) , but I wasn’t really taken by Tracey’s solo album. Don’t get me wrong, there are several tracks I like, but I don’t exactly love them. What I do love is Tracey’s voice. With that said, this Hot Chip remix of Tracey’s Kings Cross is brilliant, dark, and overall moving. I love the detuning of notes that hits around the 5:55 mark of this track.
Nice remix from Junior Boys of Stars mid-tempo pop song, “Sleep Tonight”. Stars are a Pop group from Montreal, Quebac.
