Warm Digits remix 'Big Balloon'

Hot on the heels of British Sea Powers' remix, Warm Digits are the next band to give Dutch Uncles' single 'Big Balloon' the remix treatment.

Speaking of the remix, Warm Digits' Steven Jefferis and Andrew Hodson said:

"The original's seductive, sideways-on rhythms don't provide an easy starting point for a remix. But once Andrew [Hodson] hit upon the idea of translating the original song's rough-and-tumble into a blissed-out balearic belter, we wheeled out our 303s and squelched off into the sunset."

"We slowed the song down to 130 from 170 beats per minute to make it Discoo, took the swing groove out of the instruments, and added a Liquid Liquid Optimo sheen to it."

Dutch Uncles play Glastonbury Festival this weekend, you can buy their new album Big Balloon on limited edition clear vinyl, CD and via iTunes.

Mailhini share new single "Miss"

London x Rome duo Malihini (Giampaolo Speziale and Federica Caiozzo) have shared their second single "Miss" premiering via DIY. The single was produced by Richard Formby (Wild Beasts, Darkstar, Ghostpoet).

""Miss" is a love song, containing memories and hopes and fears," say the band. "When we were writing it we found ourselves in one of those rhythmic loops. A loop that felt tribal, almost. We scrambled some words together and they came out so naturally it felt like we were exhaling the lyrics rather than writing them."

"Richard Formby was a lot of fun to work with, he goes deep into the songs and generates layers where you couldn't imagine there being layers. He's a lovely human, too."
