First let me say that finding an artist that can remix a song to sound as great, if not better than the original, is a rare occurrence. And having never heard of Gigamesh before, I had no idea what to expect when I saw that he had remixed one of my favorite artists, Grouplove. Sure enough, as soon as I hit ‘play’, I was soon falling in love with this remix, and was ecstatic of how well it sounded from start to finish.
Gigamesh managed to transform “Tongue Tied” into a dance floor beat that sounds like it could bring back disco, and on top of that still kept the fun, outgoing sound that is Grouplove. Instantly after hearing this remix I had to find more. So I headed over to Gigamesh‘s Souncloud and found plenty more disco friendly beats. While I’m not much of a disco fan myself, there is no denying that Gigamesh has done it right here — just give his EP sampler a go, and you’ll know what I mean.
