You may know that we’ve been a big fan of Ellie Goulding, from way back in the day, when she was hanging out with Starsmith. Obviously now (solely because of this blog) she’s huge, knocking (off) about with Skrillex and working with Greg Kurstin, Madeon and Burns on her repackaged version of Halcyon, called Halcyon Days.
If we’re honest, the original of ‘Burns’ is bloody horrible. An EDM beast and not in a good way. This remix though is really quite nice, restraining the over the top trance shenanigans, in favour of a more chilled approach, highlighting Ellie’s ace voice. Halcyon Days is out August 26th.

Apparently it has been former Gene frontman Martin Rossiter’s intention to get locked in a walk in freezer and make this video for fifteen years. I don’t really know how that works, how his mind works, or why it’s taken fifteen years, but it’s a very effective video. It has the same effect on me as the clip for Radiohead ‘No Surprises’, where Thom sings from inside a space mans helmet, as it fills with water. During the piano interludes, you can see Rossiter thinking ‘shit I wish I’d trimmed a minute off this section’ as the frostbite kicks in.
