Miike Snow are currently running a remix competition for their track “My Trigger”, which was the second single off their awesome 2016 album ‘iii’, and today we are premiering one of the remix entries by Australian electro-disco duo, Midnight Pool Party.
“We have been fans of Miike Snow since they released their first album back in 2009. The way they approach their song writing and production is something we admire, and it has influenced the way we approach songwriting as well.
When we heard that the stems were available for “My Trigger”, we knew this was something we just had to have a go at – give it the MPP touch.
We hope everyone enjoys our take on this song, and we hope you feel we’ve done it justice.” – Midnight Pool Party
Voting for the “My Trigger” remix competition closes this Friday, September 9 so get on over there and give Midnight Pool Party some voting love.
!!! have just released their fifth full length album THR!!!ER and are hitting the road starting today for a month long US tour. Guest vocalist Sonia Moore (of “2 Legit 2 Quit” fame) will not be joining, so the band is going to choose one fan per city to come up on stage and sing along.
Sing With Chk Contest – Note from the band:
Come on, admit it. You’ve dreamed about singing with !!!. Only a few of us have been able to live that dream but now you can too. We’re not bringing Sonia Moore, the singer from One Girl/One Boy, so we want you to come up and sing w/ us when we hit your town.
Upload a youtube video of you singing along or send an mp3 to email@example.com. No big deal, just you in front of the mirror singing into the hairbrush style will do. We’ll sift through the entries and holler at you if you’ve got what it takes. You’ll of course be judged on your vocal ability, but dance moves and star quality definitely help. If anything, it’s a free ticket for you and your bff for the show. No flakes, no egos, no drug problems.
