As tempted as I am to yell “CARTE BLANCHE IS BACK!”, let’s face it, CARTE BLANCHE never really left.
Fresh off our inaugural Spring 2010 tour, Sir Riton and I first remixed UFFIE’s ‘ADD SUV’, rocked the FIELD DAY festival in London and RECLAIM THE DANCEFLOOR in Ibiza, and then spent the rest of the summer working on CHROMEO’s Late Night Mix of ‘Don’t Turn The Lights On’, and more recently SCISSOR SISTERS ‘Any Which Way’ remix.
And yet, and yet: here we are again with not only a new release soon on Ed Banger, but also another tour-de-force to support it.
THE NEW RELEASE:
BLACK BILLIONAIRES: THE REMIXES-
LAIDBACK LUKE destroys ‘DO DO DO!’, our main inspiration GREEN VELVET works his Chicago magic touch on ‘GARE DU NORD’, plus (don’t ask me how) Riton and I did find the time for a whole new song. And if this wasn’t enough, we’ve got something cooking in the video department, something of ‘dream-come-true’ proportions, something to make my mama proud.
Actually, I’m so happy that the legendary Green Velvet re-did ‘Gare Du Nord’ that I might leak it later this week. #justsaying #staytuned
