Exactly one year on from the release of their sophomore album Listening Party, Sydney hip-hip crew Loose Change are back with The Remix Party EP
The five-track EP sees the original boom-bap tracks lifted off THE Listening Party and re-imagined as spaced out electronic beats; portraying an almost cutting-room floor vibe through the internal back-and-forth of the remixes.
Sydney producer Hazy’s remix of ‘Shoosh’ flows between dazed-out summertime vibes and a semi-anxious stoner rant; while Billy Hoyle’s take on ‘Do To Me’ enhances the cheesy romance of Laneous’ soulful vocals with a slew of synths leaving the track reminiscent of an 80’s pop-soaked love story.
Big Village label mate Roleo has stepped in with a straight-up injection of his usual head-bang-inducing electronic swagger with his take on ‘Mess’; while the groups beat master P. Major’s transforms ‘Yes or No’ into a spacey dubbed out reggae version of the original.
Set for release this coming Tuesday (OCTOBER 7TH), the REMIX PARTY EP is set to coincide with the recent release of the group’s ‘Grown Ups’ video, filmed as part of the 2014 triple j Unearthed/NIDA video clip competition.
LOOSE CHANGE have had a massive eighteen months following the release of the original LISTENING PARTY album in October 2013; taking on two national headline tours – on top of delivering a remix of their self-titled 2010 debut album in June.
“Soulful Sydney hip-hop trio Loose Change have managed to mix superb classic beats from P Major with quirky, intelligent rhymes and home-grown hooks from Big Village head honcho Rapaport and the particularly comedic Ellesquire. FOUR STARS.” – The Music
