Here we have part five of the Remix Rainbow series. This week John O has remixed “What About Us” by Handsome Furs. With remixes like this, we happen to think John O is a true genius. Details via Diamond Rings:
Chances are most of you are already familiar with Handsome Furs. Singer/guitarist/husband Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade) and electronic beatsmasher/dance partier/wife Alexei Perry are from Montreal and will be releasing their third album Sound Kapital on June 28th via Sub Pop. I’ve already had the privilege of hearing it and can assure you that it’s some heavy duty stuff.
I had a blast working on this remix and want to thank Dan and Alexei for being extra supportive throughout the whole process! These last few weeks have been crazy busy with touring and press, and getting to EQ that nasty metallic snare sound was probably the only thing that’s kept me sane.
