Crystal Fighters Announce 'Star Of Love' Remix Album Details

London-based folktronica outfit Crystal Fighters have announced details of their ‘Star of Love’ remixes album, due out September 23rd.

Crystal Fighters are currently in the studio recording the follow up to their much lauded debut album ‘Star Of Love’, set for a spring 2013 release. But, in the meantime - to keep their fans needs satisfied - they’ve put together a remix album which will be available from Sunday September 23rd.

The LP is an album of tracks from the original record remixed by some names you may know and love, and some you may grow to. The band approached their favourite artists and producers and invited them to remix a track of their choice. Their picks compromise ‘Star of Love (Remixes)’, due out on 23rd September 2012 on Zirkulo/PIAS/Atlantic Records.

The package contains fifteen inspired interpretations of seven tracks from the original album by a host of talent from the dance world. Current US single ‘At Home’ is remixed by band-of-the-moment Passion Pit, south London post-dubstep siblings Disclosure and French hipsters Pony Pony Run Run.

Drum and bass heavyweight producers Brookes Brothers and dBridge re-work ‘In the Summer’, which also has a version by Hotflush Recordings’ hyped Brooklyn duo Sepalcure. Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (TEED) remixes ‘Xtatic Truth’ while UK noise-maker Lapalux and Dutch DJ and producer Alvaro take on ‘Plage’, electro star D/R/U/G/S, dubstep duo Roksonix and Norwegian act Diskjokke remix ‘Follow’ while D&B/dubstep Ram Records duo Delta Heavy re-work ‘I Love London’. Finally ‘Swallow’ is remixed by the Indonesian electronic artist Angger Dimas and dubstep producer FuntCase.

You can check out the Passion Pit remix of ‘At Home’ now - make sure you don’t miss the full album on the 23rd!

It’s one year since we said we’d see Tom Petty somewhere along the road, and it’s still a bitter one to swallow. We’ve had time to accept that there’s a full stop to his story, and to understand our relationship with his music in a new context, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.

Thu 27 Sep 2018
Album four from Edinburgh's We Were Promised Jetpacks is, in their own words, about going back to basics. Since 2014’s ‘Unravelling’ they’ve changed management and label, both potential pitfalls, while recording was undertaken in the US with producer Jonathan Low. Running alongside these changes on ‘The More I Sleep The Less I Dream’ is the switch back to their original four man configuration and something approximating the style of their early releases.

Alt-J - Reduxer (Album Review)
Mon 01 Oct 2018
Remix albums don’t always work. The best examples refresh and reveal elements of the original songs, giving them new life and often broadening their appeal. When they fail, it is often because the tracks lack the integrity and consistency of the source material.
