Lea Porcelain – Loose Life (Roman Flügel Remix)

Mood music of the best kind…

With a reflective, changing of the season atmosphere here at HDHQ, we were blessed with the ideal soundtrack in this emotional, synth-heavy remix of Lea Porcelain. Roman Flügel has pulled out the new wave elements to great effect, building a crisp electronic base for Markus Nikolaus’s melancholy vocals. With all the reminiscing that came from #indieamnesty, this tugged at the heart-strings like some of the classics of the late-era, hands in the air period.

‘Loose Life’ is taken from LP’s self-titled debut EP and Roman’s version is half of a remix package put out by Live At Robert Johnson, last seen releasing HD fave Fort Romeau. Another winner.

William Onyeabor vs Hot Chip – Atomic Bomb (John Talabot remix)

Like a party where all your favourite people turn up:

First you had William Onyeabor, the Nigerian electro-funk artist brought to a new audience by a Luaka Bop compilation a couple of years’ back. Then you had Hot Chip, doing a cover of Onyeabor’s ‘Atomic Bomb’ last year. And finally, look who’s shown up, it’s John Talabot with a remix of Hot Chips’s cover, all in time for a Record Store Day release*. That’s some tune/party.

Whilst we’re here, you may remember another track from the covers album…

*The Soundcloud says it’s for RSD in 2018 but we have a hunch it might be an April Fool’s day gag…
