EL-B Remixes Disclosure

Listen to his rework of “Boiling”

EL-B has come out of his cave to remix Disclosure's “Boiling”, as taken from their “The Face EP” on Greco-Roman. And we're happy he did, for the Briton has been keeping rather quiet recently, especially compared to the start of this century, when his obscurantist view on UK garage proved fundamental to the birth of dubstep. For now, we have no further release info, but you can listen to the tracks after the jump.

Justin Timberlake Slows Down In The Hands Of Bear//Face

Listen to the remix that the young Brit has just done of “My Love”

Since there isn’t any fresh news of Justin Timberlake musically speaking, we have to settle for the reinterpretation that the very young, Bear//Face has just done of that well-known “My Love” that dates back to 2007. Slowing down the tempo and distorting the voice of the former member of ‘NSYNC until it is unrecognisable, make the song seem like perfect company for the lovelorn on Halloween night. If you like it, you can download it by following this shortcut.

Nick Cave And Kylie Minogue Re-Record Their “Murder Ballad”

New acoustic version of “Where the Wild Roses Grow”

Seventeen years ago, Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue surprised the world with their unexpected duet on “Where The Wild Roses Grow”, probably the best-remembered song, most often played on the radio, of all of those on the highly acclaimed Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds album “Murder Ballads” (Mute, 1995). Now they have re-recorded the song with an eye to “The Abbey Road Sessions”, Minogue’s new album, in which she is performing hits from her career accompanied by an orchestra. This version of the “murder ballad” has nevertheless ended up sounding barer than the original. The album comes out on 29th October via Parlophone.
