The French excel at many things. To avoid accusations of lazy stereotyping, we won’t go into these things now, but one of them is undoubtedly making music to dance to in the sun. This all-French affair is further evidence of this, with Bordeaux resident Darius remixing Parisian Le Crayon‘s ‘Give You Up’.
The track forms part of an EP which is an early release on Yuksek‘s new label Partyfine – and the man himself has also remixed it. But while Yuksek’s version contains his trademark driving percussion, Darius has stripped things back and taken it very easy. The slow tempo, lush vocal and laid back bassline make this one for long summer’s evenings. Not many of them left for those of you in Britain, so best get it on sharpish.
