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.

'All Eyes On You' by St. Lucia is like a Washed Out track, minus the copious amount of layers. The Chroms Canyon remix on the other hand is like a futuristic Daft Punk (albeit less mad) version of the track. A little but 80's too, but that quality is present in the original, so we'll let them off. [read more]

It could also have a lot to do with the names of the artists involved, but it's making me happy, and that's the main thing. [read more]
