The 1975 - 'Sex' (Hackman Remix) [Download]
The chances are that Manchester-based quartet The 1975 never saw 1975, though their Sex EP does contain a slither of the pomp and grandiose designs of that era, spliced with something a lot more contemporary.
Here bass-maniac Hackman has got involved with remix duites for the title track from the EP (stream here) and has transformed it into a wholly different entity - full of smoothly produced 2-step ways and garage beats. The 1975's debut album is currently being recorded and is due for Spring 2013, and producing-artisan Mike Crossey, who has worked with the likes of Foals and Arctic Monkeys, is lending a helping hand.
Download 'Sex' below (always wanted to type that), and the EP is out today, November 19th.
