This morning, Far East Movement unleashed some brand-new remixes of their new single "Turn Up The Love" that features U.K. newcomers Cover Drive. Produced by Axident and Wallpaper, "Turn Up The Love" is rocking up the charts in Europe and with the freshly-unveiled video of the "Dirty Bass" stomper, it's ready to explode into primetime in the Americas as well.
After remixing tunes for La Roux, Britney Spears and Katy Perry, DJ/production duo Manhattan Clique now takes on the radio-ready "Turn Up The Love" and turns it into a mightily infectious dancefloor romp. They up the euphoric dancefloor qualities of the original by including a booming new groove and a sparkly new synth riff that neatly builds to the song's soaring chorus.
Manhattan Clique is a big fan of Far East Movement and were thrilled to remix "Turn Up The Love." "It was great fun working on the Natalia Kills/Far East Movement remix we did a few months ago," the duo of Philip Larsen and Chris Smith writes me. "We were very pleased to be asked to turn our attention to 'Turn Up The Love.'"
"Far East Movement's hooks and basslines are incredibly heavy," Manhattan Clique adds. "We wanted to feature that in the remix, whilst taking the whole track somewhere else for the clubs. The new piano line and chords are intended to give the vocal a twist and - hopefully - build the euphoric nature of both sets of vocals." Very nicely done, gents. So go ahead "clap your hands" and "get it poppin'" because this one "has love to give." Highly recommended.
