Though it’s been a long time since Fatboy Slim gave us new music, the legendary artist has revealed some fabulous new remixes of his songs on a remix EP entitled Fatboy Slim vs Australia. As the title might suggest, all the producers and projects involved are from Australia. We can’t get enough of The Kite String Tangle’s take on Fatboy Slim classic Praise You. He brings his own electronic prowess to the table on the mix, creating a slick and punchy electronic soundscape propelled by the original’s anthemic hook and big beats. For another taste off the six track EP, stream Lo’99′s bass churning, seedy “strutting” remix of Fatboy Slim’s Star 69 below, too, and prepare for some glorious warehouse vibes. Fatboy Slim vs Australia, which also features remixes by The Aston Shuffle, Sam La More, Set Mo, and Carmada, is available, here.

I nearly had to pick my jaw straight off the floor the other day when I encountered Hannah Grace’s cover of Fatboy Slim classic Praise You. It was the very first time I heard her pristine voice, and this UK newcomer is simply stunning on this raw and emotive “piano version” of the song. Hannah Grace’s Praise You is likely familiar to those who have seen the latest Lloyds Bank TV advertisement that has been airing nationwide in the UK. Her perfect vocal control and her astonishing range are reminiscent of London Grammar’s Hannah Reid, with perhaps even more soaring, soulful power. Hannah Grace’s astonishing version of Praise You follows on the release of a second EP entitled Mustang and live performances at huge festivals like Glastonbury and Boardmasters, as well as a headlining tour. How I haven’t heard of this magnificent talent until now evades me. Hannah Grace grew up influenced by the likes of Joni Mitchell, Eva Cassidy, and Steven Nicks, as well as jazz singers like Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Aretha Franklin. The singer songwriter is spending time in the studio right now perfecting her debut album. You can purchase this stark beauty of a cover, here.
