” Housse de Racket and Kitsuné are proud to announce the official “Aquarium” Flash Remix Contest!
As they are kicking off their one-month American tour at SXSW this week-end and to celebrate the release of their album Alesia in the United States, Housse de Racket offers to their fans all over the world the unique occasion to remix their next single Aquarium!
So here is your chance to create your own version of the epic anthem “Aquarium” taken from Housse de Racket’s second album “Alesia” released on Kitsuné in 2011. The winner will be featured on “Aquarium” EP – a worldwide release out this summer!
How to participate ?
The competition ends on April 15th and the winner will be announced on April 22nd when the band ends their tour at Coachella. The winning remix will be chosen between the ten most voted for so don’t hesitate to spread the link around!
“They danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I’ve been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn…”
Sometimes all you need is a good disco loop to get the place jumping. P-Money and Dan Aux are all about the loops, coming together with one intention, to find the ‘greatest disco house loops and arrange them into present day dancefloor destroyers! ‘. Though this production has been around for a while, this is their first official release, out on Kitsune March 28th, with remixes from DCUP and more. Think pool side terrace, cold beer and probably wiggling bikini clad hips.

Blackstrobe are set to re-issue their 2004 electro favourite ‘Italian Fireflies’ on March 5th, with a new selection of remixes to spice things up. Among the contributors are Hey Today, Second Date and this ace rework from Reflex.
The reissue coincides with the release of a new album later in the year, apparently without original member Ivan Smagghe and they will be dropping a greatest hits retrospective sometime soon.
