Weekly mp3 #71: Röyksopp - Happy Up Here (Holy Fuck Remix)
Although they can't stomach writing out the remixing band's name, Spinner do allow you to download the MP3 for free.
Echoing distorted fx I guess come from a guitar, but it's all a sort of punk dub blur. A live rhythm section of bass and drums lay down a pretty heavy groove, with the drums doing a semi-military, rolling thing. Lots of snare drums all over the show. Big, sparkly keyboard lines are presumably what's left of the original... and are complemented nicely by synths than plunge out of the sky towards the ground.
Sort of modern day, more party-friendly take on Liquid Liquid or someone.
Röyksopp are a duo from Norway, probably best known for their tunes with MR FANTASTICALLY AWESOME, I mean, Erlend Øye.
The Canadian band Holy Fuck are known for doing the gestures of electronica in a live band format, so dunno how they went about this remix.
