Grandmaster Flash's Midnight Juggernauts remix
Thu 10th Jul, 2008 Newsin
Hip-hop pioneer Grandmaster Flash remixing famed Aussie indie-electro trio the Midnight Juggernauts… Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? Continuing on their never-ending quest for worldwide dancefloor domination, the Juggernauts have been touring non-stop since the start of this year, playing across the US, Europe and Asia to launch their stunning debut album ‘Dystopia’ internationally.
Just a few weekends ago they played uber-festival Glastonbury, and judging by reports blew the audience away. “Starting with a tune that sounds like a cross between serious industrial techno and rock, the crowd’s almost instant response shows how popular they are becoming in the dance scene… [Glastonbury] could push them over towards mainstream success,” said Kev Geoghegan of BBC Radio 1.
Not content with smashing festival stages to smithereens, they’ve lined up a brand new EP for release, with an imposing list of musical artists putting the remix touch to their now cult classic ‘Into The Galaxy’. The EP will be available in Australia through iTunes in August, and it features remixes from the aforementioned Grandmaster Flash, Metronomy, Danger, Architecture in Helsinki, Chateau Marmont and Shychild.
