Exclusive: Throw Out Your Heart



Okay, six bands into our Who's Who rundown, and it's time for an interval, of sorts.

And Oh. My. God. What an interval...

Following on from my recent words, Velo have made a swift return to these parts with their aforementioned Starry Eyed remix for the much-loved Ellie Goulding. Sie and Pete don't waste an ounce of the original in creating this grinding disco edit, effortlessly keeping intact everything that made the original so good while stamping their own mark all over it, creating something as home on the radio as it is on the more discerning dancefloor.

The sweet nature of the original is warped with distorted chants and a mammoth drum breakdown that calls to mind the Thrust Lab remix of Problem Is by HEALTH - quite how they incorporate such influences but remain defiantly pop is a true testament to their remix genius. Inject the unabashed funk of Pete's own original bass parts and the oft talked about 'Next Level' isn't so much reached and breached, as smashed.

Exclusive drop for you below. Spread the Velo.

not bad but doesn't come close to Russ Chimes' remix!

Carl said...

Each to their own, though as much as I like the Russ Chimes remix - it's essentially a Russ Chimes track with Ellie's vocals on top. This is a whole different animal.
