The Bubblegum Sci-Fi Remix of The Reeling by American electro-indie band Passion Pit is the perfect subject for a post: it’s a blend of lots of different styles, it’s a remix (my original blog was limited to posts about remixes & samples) and, as it’s used in one of the ads for Skins, the TV series that’s using the web to subvert the traditional methods of making & marketing programmes, it’s oh-so on topic for me.
So, is that why I’m posting it? No, it’s because I haven’t posted anything for ages and the way that this track, stops, starts & stutters makes me think of the Pet Shop Boys meeting Ladyhawke in an indie disco in Ibiza. And it totally rocks.
