The Helmholtz Resonators recently released their Double A with remixes of their underground classics ‘Bombs!’ by the acid house kings, Medicine 8, and the awesome ‘Gypsy’ by Nu Chicago sensation, Kurtis Hardrive.
We’ve been pulling a few all-nighters in the studio lately and have got it down to a fine art thanks to a few basic ingredients: adrenaline, caffeine and music. It’s true, as a combined cocktail, these 3 things are officially all you need to combat sleep deprivation.
Our current studio fix is courtesy of The Helmholtz Resonators who recently released their Double A with remixes of their underground classics ‘Bombs!’ by the acid house kings, Medicine 8, and the awesome ‘Gypsy’ by Nu Chicago sensation, Kurtis Hardrive. The single has been picking up a lot of love from Eddy Temple Morris (XFM) and Lauren Laverne (BBC 6 Music) with Medicine 8′s remix of ‘Bombs!’ becoming a regular on her show.
“This tune is, in the vernacular of the medium, ttz amaze” - Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music, on Bombs! remix
After the success of The Helmholtz Resonator’s album, “The Crystal Submarine”, this band of sonic scientists (named after a device created by Hermann von Helmholtz), are releasing an EP of hedonistic ruckuses remixed by the freshest and most anticipated producers in the land. Lead tracks from the album, ‘Bombs!’ and ‘Gypsy’, have been going on 5-day benders, trashing hotel rooms, fu*king porn stars and have come out at the end as pumped as 80’s Arnold and slicker then Silvio Berlusconi!
Now, we can’t quite claim to be having the exact same kind of all-nighters BUT we’re doing it our way and ‘Bombs!’ is getting some serious repeat action!
Marking the long awaited return of Medicine 8, who spent years living the dream playing the biggest clubs all around the world, regulars in Ibiza and the Miami Winter Music Conference as well as DJs at Creamfields, Global Gathering, Homelands, hellz they even had a residency at Pacha Argentina and all this in between numerous sessions on Radio 1 and remixing tracks for artists including Orbital, Manic Street Preachers, Nirvana, Tiga and Kylie (who loved their mix so much she asked for it to be played when she walked down the catwalk at Karl Largerfeld’s show). Who knows why they stopped but it doesn’t matter because they’re back with this monster remix of ‘Bombs!’
‘Gypsy’ on the flip side is a sick acid disco reworking by Trashmouth’s new signing, Kurtis Hardrive, with its twitchy chanting vocals, warehouse echo chorus and authentic “f*** you” slap bass it’s already set to be a Nu Chicago phuture classic.
