As a rock band whose style is heavily influenced by dark, synth-based, big bands of the 80s, it makes perfect sense for The Penelopes to remix their heroes, The Cure. The Penelopes’ exquisite remix of “Just Like Heaven” by The Cure is so full of sunshine & bounce that even the most pale, sun deprived Goth wouldn’t think twice about putting on their best black swimsuit & frolicking in the sun while dancing to this one. Don’t forget that SPF 100 & waterproof mascara!
The Penelopes have a big 2014 lined up with a brand new single coming out in mid-April along with an accompanying video & hot remix package. Can’t wait for that! Until then, enjoy this heavenly new remix…
The Penelopes‘ shiny new synth-pop track “Summer Life” is set to be released on July 15th with a fantastic remix package which includes Gigamesh, Viceroy + Style of Eye (all three of whom are pictured in the artwork above). If the original of “Summer Life” makes you want to frolic in the sand on the beach then the Gigamesh remix (featured below) will make you wanna jump in the water & swim out the the party boat for some daytime disco hijinks.
I’m always a sucker for sweet + sexy female vocals. So naturally this is the second go-round on GDD™ for “Now Now Now” by The Penelopes, which features the seductive styling of female vocalist Laura Kidd. Yesterday we featured The C90s remix of “Now Now Now” on The Dirt #58 (grab the 320 HERE) and today we come across another dazzling remix, this time by UK House master (and one of the GDD™ 2011 Breakthrough Artists of the Year) Miguel Campbell. Check out his smoothed out remix below (complete with a bassline that is straight from outer space). The track also received A-Trak’s stamp of approval on his Fools Gold Radio Mix last month.
Bonus: Check out the original + peep the wonderful video for “Now Now Now” below!
We are more than excited to bring you the first Dirt of 2012. We can safely say that BIG THINGS in dance music are on the horizon for the upcoming year. And Gotta Dance Dirty™ will surely be at the forefront. BE READY. For now, enjoy The Dirt #58 presented to you by aRod + KMOC…
