After his first ever regional UK tour, Sinkane shares a lovely remix of his track 'New Name' by Paris-based producer Pedro Winter aka Busy P. If you don't know Busy P, you might be acquainted with French label Ed Banger Records, of which he is the founder and boss – they've put out stuff from Justice, Sebastian, Mr. Oizo and Uffie (to name but a few); he's also Daft Punk's manager. Busy P indeed.

'No Name' is taken from Sinkane's album from earlier this year Mean Love, originally a night-time-leaning bouncy and triumphal R&B-flavoured track. But under Busy P's creative fingers it becomes something else, a dancefloor-destined track pockmarked with stabs of distorted guitar and brass blares, decorated with truncated and sometimes bitcrushed versions of the original's vocals. All the while ambient fluttering works plasma magic in the background, and later on an attack of acid synth pierces through the heavy groovesome beat with its two-note bassline and lightly accented hi-hat tick-tickings. A refreshing and sublimely simple reworking of the bustling original.

Listen below. And hey: below that check out a long string of tour dates for the last day of the year and a lot of shows in 2015, finishing up at XOYO in London, 14th April. For that one, tickets go on sale Wednesday 10th December, over at Songkick.

Also: We went with Sinkane to Rough Trade in September to talk about records and take some photos.
