Fresh from putting out UR A Fever, The Kills have decided to let budding producers at it and are running a competition on their Midnight Boom site to remix the track (check the generous terms & conditions heheh) Given the stripped down nature of the track there’s plenty of scope to go somewhere interesting.

One example of this is the effort from South London producer Remdog, who has his fingers in several pies, including being part of hiphop act Reptiles (those record collectors out there may remember their releases on the sorely missed Jazz Fudge label) knee deep in a successful career as an artist and no doubt several of the meat variety too!

There’s definite hints of Ultravox in this remix, but when is that ever anything but a very good thing?

Midnight Boom is released March 10th on Domino Records.

Keeping proceedings proceedings on the beats and bleeps side of things but notching the glitch up a bit is some music from the new Daedelus album, out next week on Alpha Pup Records.

Ever since Denies The Days Demise dropped on Ninjatune a few years back, one eye has been constantly peeled for future Daedelus releases, with the Fair Weather Friends EP, released last autumn, finding particular favour here.

The new album, Live At The Low End Theory is based around Daedelus’ performance at the Alpha Pup clubnight Low End Theory last year (hence the snappy title) and gives a good insight why his live performances are so highly rated.

Posting one or two tracks doesn’t really give you a proper idea of how the album flows so definitely grab a copy when it drops on Monday

Alphapup Bonus: Here is track Hot Heavy Heat from veteran noise freaks Carlos y Gaby as remixed by Swiss producer Dimlite!
