Foals and Kele have featured on the blog in the past, and today we got a remix for both of their big songs so far this year.

First up, Kele’s ‘Tenderoni’, from the soon-to-be-released ‘The Boxer’ album, got a reworking by Kris Menace’ and makes it more echoey and less claustrophobic. It makes a lot of sense now. And of course we get a dance build-up just to keep the interests piqued. Check it out just below, and download it to your hearts content. Still sounds like Wiley though…

Foals’ ‘Spanish Sahara’ got an extended reworking by Deadboy who is well-versed in the art of the remix. He makes proceedings ever more sparse than the original and adds an ever-increasing amount of synth into the equation. But that is the prerequisite for remixes these days: ‘Make it sound more like Calvin Harris!’

It does work, as you will hear if you can make it to the seven-minute mark. Prolonged but deservedly so, ‘Spanish Sahara’ could make it onto the dancefloors yet.
