Photograph Funhell // Stupid photshop *myself*
Database has gone through some dark paths (i.e. bad and/or forgetful remixes), but now it seems they're back to the bright side of their productions. After the amazing free compilation Ugly Edits Vol. 2 and some remixes that are yet to be released, the boys are back delivering a split single with the American duo French Horn Rebellion.
'Beaches and Friends' started out as a Database song featuring FHR vocals, but it ended up growing so much it became a much more collaborative effort from both bands. The single, which is in talks to be released via Green Label Sound, will feature remixes from The Twelves and Hey Champ.
If the original tends to be like a synthetic funky clash between the projects in a Chromeo kinda way, the Hey Champ remix (the only thing available to public at the moment) is mostly synthpop but still very very good. Think Lifelike, Australia and songs that you can dance to in a club and still listen to it with your headphones on. Sweet!
