You know we’re in for a mighty fine treat when a remix of Flight Facilities by Joe Goddard crops up. The gifted producer and beloved member of Hot Chip and The 2 Bears has given Flight Facilities long awaited recent single Arty Boy an swirly entrancing deep disco house re-fix that leaves us with a strong urge to hit the dance floors with our very best dance moves on this fine Friday night. Joe Goddard’s remix is dark and visceral, yet glamorous and flashy. Flight Facilities explains: “Joe has always been an inspiration of ours, whether it’s as himself, 2 Bears or Hot Chip. We’re over the moon to have his interpretation of Arty Boy out in the world: Out now:”

Joe Goddard, the esteemed artist well known for his roles in both Hot Chip and The 2 Bears, put forth a solo album earlier this year named Electric Lines. Album gem Ordinary Madness has received a ravishing remix by none other than ever brilliantly versatile and prolific producer RAC. This earthy strumming, halcyon sailing edit is a warm comfort of an indie dance & chill house swayer. RAC says of his breezy lush edit: “I’ve been a fan of Joe’s and Hot Chip for so long that it was truly an honor to work on his material. I tried to take the song in a more mellow direction. I wanted her vocals to be up close and intimate, as if singing in your ear. I even used my childhood guitar, which has a worn-in quality to it. I hope you like it.” You can purchase the remix from major retailers, here.

This next one may not be a new Hot Chip song (which I’m sure would set off quite the frenzy if it were), but it involves two members of Hot Chip anyway, so I’m sure it’s creating quite astir regardless, especially since it’s such a rad dance pop tune from Joe Goddard featuring Alexis Taylor. Electric Lines is the title track from the prolific producer’s new solo album, out tomorrow. It’s sparse and limber, with spacious blips and gentle claps. Within its wistful core wafts Alexis Taylor’s ever entrancing, waxy smooth voice. In some ways, Electric Lines almost feels like a Postal Service tune, with more vast and expansive electronica in its depths. The song first premiered today via Joe Goddard’s uniquely immersive site, created by Domino Recording Co and Joe himself. The site aims to share Joe Goddard’s stories directly with fans prior to Electric Lines’ release. Visit that site, here. Pre-order Joe Goddard’s new album before it drops tomorrow, here. You can also stream the title track via YouTube below, too.

There’s no denying the infectiousness of Katy Perry’s new Skip Marley featuring hit Chained To The Rhythm, plus it marks a fresh and intriguing departure in sound for the artist with very humble roots. I for one can’t help but love Chained To The Rhythm’s funky hook and pertinent message. And now, I can’t resist this dashing new remix of the track by none other than well loved British outfit Hot Chip. They give the track a choppy house workover that will keep you moving all night long, chained forevermore to its rhythm. You can also stream the remix off of Soundcloud, below.

Brilliant musician Joe Goddard of Hot Chip and The 2 Bears fame is finally releasing a solo album this April, and Electric Lines’ lead single full on spectacular. Music Is The Answer, which arrives with a futuristic entrancing video, is a dark pulsing, cinematic veering ambler. The abyssal depth of this throbbing piece recalls some of my favorite Tourist songs paired with the rich clattering soundscape of Jamie xx. Electric Lines will be arriving on April 21st. You can order the debut solo album on limited edition deluxe vinyl LP & CD, here, or download digitally, here.

As if Someone That Loves You isn’t already the most heavenly British collaboration between electro R&B swooners HONNE and singer songwriter Izzy Bizu, that velveteen track has now been remixed by Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard! Float on puffs of fleecy clouds as Someone That Loves You gets transformed into a gentle pulsing, cool pumping dance jam under Joe Goddard’s deft hands.

The original’s warm fuzzy vibes are much retained on this phenomenal remix.

It’s an entrancingly beautiful affair.

I was listening to this earlier with my ears perked quite curiously, and the deeper I dove into the song, the more I found my spine tingling and my eyes widening with delight. In an epic meeting of two ginormous acts of our time, Hot Chip has remixed Florence + the Machine’s Queen Of Peace. The song, off recent glorious album How Big How Beautiful, is already a magnificent creature to begin with. It has Florence Welch, after all. Hot Chip gives it a deep and hypnotic funky house makeover with an ominous, bitter tang. It’s certainly not what we normally are used to hearing when we think Florence, but it’s a wicked new visceral soundscape to hear her in. This is something to go nuts to on the dance floor, in a most beastly way. Stream the remix on Spotify above or YouTube below.

OFFICIAL VID: Hot Chip – Huarache Lights

February 11, 2015

Some of my die hard Hot Chip fan friends are probably flying on cloud nine today. After all, Hot Chip just dropped a brand new (albeit simple) music video and track titled Huarache Lights AND announced new album “Why Make Sense?” for a release date of May 18th on Domino. Let’s everyone welcome back the British electronic sensation and indulge in the wonderfully slick and fabulous alternative dance and synthpop of Huarache Lights. This brings me back to a a couple years ago when I last saw Hot Chip live, at a free Converse curated show at tiny little Slim’s in San Francisco. That was pretty cool.

If you’re a die hard Hot Chip fan, like some of my friends are, then you undoubtedly know of New Build. The British electropop outfit is a side project formed by several members from Hot Chip. New Build released a video today for their current single Pour It On, also the title track off their 2014 album. Pour It On is a satiny slowly marching electronic track full of hypnotic, ambient pop atmosphere. There’s a profound grandiosity and simmering intensity to the song.
