Last week, we were very excited to premiere the amazingly groovy Gigamesh remix of the brand new Punks Jump Up track featuring the sultry vocals of Dave 1 of Chromeo, and this week, we are pleased to share the colorful, animated music video of the original. Sexy, bright, and voluptuous is how I would describe this music video — the funky track blends perfectly with the neon illumination throughout the entire production. Pick up the Mr. Overtime EP with remixes from Mickey, Gigamesh, and Oliver out on Moda Music a week from today! √+
Joe Attard & David Andersson AKA Punks Jump Up are out with a grooving new single that features the undeniably sexy vocals from Chromeo‘s Dave 1, who supposedly heard a demo from the PJU guys and felt an urge to throw some words on top of it. On April 30th, the EP package will be released on Moda Music and accompanied by 4 other mixes of the original. Stream the premiere of the Gigamesh remix and read on for the full EP tracklist and another little surprise from Oliver. √+

Mickey is no stranger to dance music. Hailing from Belgium, he has residency at the infamous Libertine Supersport, surrounded by legends such as The Magician, Mustang, and Aeroplane. He’s definitely a contributing factor to Belgium’s musical excellence. I have seen his sets, and for lack of better words, I have been absolutely blown away. If you’re one of the lucky few that happens to catch one, be prepared to loose control of your extremities and burn holes in the soles of your Chuck Taylor’s. The sound mixes golden elements from the past, then spices them up into a perfect groove & funk, Mickey style. Flavours tease the pallet consisting of a strong drum kick, bouncy chords, and precision production. He’s done remixes for the likes of Tyson, Beni, Headman, Punks Jump Up, and Housse De Racket.
Mickey has graced us with his newest single from smile recordings ‘Love For Sale’ ft. vocals from Monarchy. It’s quite magical to say the least. Give her a listen!

GDD :Where are you from & How has that influenced your music? How do you self-describe your musical style / taste?
I’m from Belgium more precisely from Brussels. Its where my studio is. The city influences me by feeling good and at home at the same time. We have a large musical culture over here.
When it comes to my music, i always try to combine big liner notes and a groove full of percussion, synth’s, piano’s and strings. Sometimes i even play extra guitar riffs on top. The goal for me is to make it the way i want to hear it myself on the radio.
GDD: How does your equipment differ from your onstage gear to what you use in the studio?
Very different! My studio gears are all instruments. On stage i’m playing live with Record Effects and 2 x CDJ 1000 & Mixing table.
GDD: Describe your perfect venue down, setting, and vibe down to the littlest detail.
I really enjoy playing close to the sea, what happened to me a couple of weeks ago in Australia, the response of the people is completely different. After your finished you can refresh yourself in the water en get a cool beer on top! These kind of venues are rare in Europe, especially in Belgium.
GDD: How do you go about picking tracks you’d like to remix?
Until now, it was always on request. But i need to chase more the tracks i like, i will try my luck in the coming weeks : )
GDD: What are your 5 favorite tracks play out right now?
Miguel Migs – Tonight (Fingerman Re-Poke)
Todd Terje – Snooze 4 Love (Original Mix)
Jonas Rathsman – Tobago
Maceo Plex – Falling (Original Mix)
Azealia Banks -212
GDD: What are 5 artists we need to keep our ears open for? ( all from Belgium ).

GDD: And finally, because everyone wants to know, when will we finally see ‘Punks jump Up – Mr Overtime (Mickey Remix)’?
