Vuurwerk are a name that you’re going to be hearing a lot more of in the coming months.
Vuurwerk (Flemish for Fireworks) are three Belgian musicians/producers based in Brussels. Part of the music/film/art/design/party throwing collective Run Tell Secrecy.
Whilst recording their current album with the help of Max Colombie, from hotly tipped fellow Belgian band Oscar & The Wolf, the band started messing around with some accappellas and came across Bon Iver’s ‘Minnesota’.
A few hour laters the band had reworked it into a remix that treads a similar path to this controversial PC music, in that there’s heavily pitched vocals and the arrangement is a bit all over the place, but there’s one crucial difference: their remix is not rubbish.
Anyway Max loved the track so much he offered to make a video for the band and voila; here we are with the premiere of said video. And there’s a free download too.
