Friendly Fires – Kiss Of Life
I’ve been meaning to tip this for weeks, but kept getting distracted by other things. As you know, we’re already big fans of Friendly Fires, but this first taste of where the band are heading with their second album pushes things to a whole new level. Taking that carnival samba sound that was evident on their debut album and pushing it right up front, establishing a really distinct sound.
The Prodigy – Breathe (NumberNin6 Remix)
Discovered by Eddy’s studio assistant Jono, himself an accomplished DJ, this dubstep remix of ‘Breathe’ by the Prodigy is just awesome. Just as you’re thinking ‘hmm, yes, I quite like this’, it hits you with a bass line that grabs you by the face and pins you to the wall.
