In a world where collaborations like Snoop Dogg and Boys Noize are apparently a good idea – it’s actually nice to see some collaborations that do work – and Rex The Dog’s new collaboration with his new BFF Kris Menace is something that actually works. And works really well.
They’re are about to release their collaboration called ‘Pow’ on October 24 – and see’s the ze German and Brit come up trumps with three club cuts of 80’s hands-in-the-air electro.
The original is a intoxicating mish-mash of off-key drums and menacing analog synths (no pun intended) – served on a bed of complex effects.
Rex’s remix come with a set of snappy tight drums, 8-bit beeps and bleeps – all finished with a veneer of Casio simplicity.
And Kris’ remix goes for the hands-in-the-air synth driven 2007 electro vibe – it’s really good.
Check out the Rex The Dog remix below.
Kris will also have a second single coming in mid Nov and will follow that up with an album sometime in 2012.
