So, to coincide with the launch of their new 7" single, 'Leaving The House/Voices' (through This Playround Records), Foreign Office have unleashed a remix competition for budding producers interpret the single as they please.
One of the first back was this piece by Warrior One, and a little tasty it is too.

Ex-goodbooks man Jocks goes all disco and lovely for this mix of Ou Est's next single. Arranging the vocal really rather well over the warm synths he makes the whole thing incredibly catchy though without really relying on any of the hooks of the original. Thanks to Bigstereo for getting this out earlier in the week.
Ou Est - These New Knights (Jocks Remix)
A young gentleman previously of Japan and New York base (hence the name) now based in the UK where he has been crafting melodic electronic pop Ou Est (a little) but has a more rounded pop voice and bigger and deeper synths. Perhaps more Penguin Prison meets Ellie Goulding than Camden's Poster boys...?
Either way, discovered through our good friend James of 88days and Brilliantly Different and the track came from Discodust who finally managed to pull a download out of Japa. Thank God for that, as i'd been wanting this on my ipod for months!

How I only discovered this the other day i'll never know, but Spanish producer Nighty Max is on top form right now with his blend of disco and electro. Desperate to get a full quality track i can play out but in the meantime check out this lovely piece.
Buffet Libre are doing some work with him at the moment, more on that in... May?
