Hercules & Love Affair Remix Chromeo (Stereogum Premiere)
Hercules & Love Affair’s Blue Songs is an impressive, eclectic take on a variety of dance floors. Andy Butler finds another angle via this remix of Chromeo’s Solange Knowles-guesting “When The Night Falls.” It appears on the Business Casual track’s single, which also features tweaks by Likelike and Breakbot and a cover by Mayer Hawthorne. Here’s Hercules’ version: Butler has a knack for making things sound after-hours and cleaned-out — even cavernous — and still appropriately dense.
The “When The Night Falls” single’s out 7/26 via Big Beat/Atlantic. Speaking of dance floors, here’s the video for Hercules & Love Affair’s Blue Songs opener “Painted Eyes.”
