Our track "Mill Town" is currently being used as part of Moorhouses' advertising campaign.
Famed for it's Pendle Witch Ale, Moorhouses' approached us to compose music that created a brand identity for it's ever popular Ales.
We created a track that integrated the forward thinking vision of the Burnley based brewery, with it's desire to remain truthful to it's herita...a mix of the old and the new...
The backing track had "sportswear ad" written all over it! We got our good friend Tonn Piper to do his thing, in his own inimitable style. We had the belief that the lyrics should be uplifting and positive...Ready to rock indeed!
Telephone Conversation has been given a SPARTAK re-work, with the incessant beat being brought to the fore. SPARTAK (Martyn Walsh, Inspiral Carpets and Ruthless Producer) were hooked when they saw Beat The Radar live. "Telephone Conversation really stood out to us and we were dying to get our hands on the track to give it a tougher, clubbier feel; whilst staying true to the original...We just had to use the anthemic chorus and do it to death!"
Bad Love gets a sex soaked electro work over courtesy of Berlin's finest DJ/Producer, Fidelity Kastrow. The song had been in SPARTAK's vaults for a while, waiting for the right vocalist to come along to make the track come to life; Fidelity has done just that, teasing out the right level of subversive sexuality in the lyric, emoting a tale of love gone bad...just the way we like it! BAD LOVE..GOOD TIMES!!
The first remix we were commissioned. We had our choice of track from Irmin's album, and it was an honour to work for the legendary Can keyboard player - Can were an early Inspiral influence. Simon and I were keen to incorporate live bass and guitar to the track and bring out some of the vocal hooks. Mute were really pleased with the results, leading to the track being played on Eddy Temple Morris' XFM show.
Our aim is to storm the dancefloor and mainstream radio with this upbeat track, written with the re-emerging dance sub-culture in mind.
A call to arms, for everyone to get on the dancefloor!
This Germany Calling!
From his Berlin bunker, the mercurial Mark Reeder, fresh from remixing The Cure, Pet Shop Boys, Blank & Jones et al; got his hands on Let's Go Get 'Em and turned it into an 80's stormer. The remix cleverly slows down the tempo, and gives it a feel harking back to prime New Order and Giorgio Moroder.
Lowline supported Inspirals on tour in 2007, Monitors blew me away as a single, and I was eager to get my hands on it to remix. The resultant overhaul is reminiscent of the TB 303 - frenzy that Hardfloor used to do so well in the mid 90's. Again this remix proved to be an Eddy Temple Morris fave.
Based on a riff the Stooges would've been proud of. This was the first track we wrote that fused our love of sleazy, dirty riffs and upfront, electronic beats, Simon's vocals interplay brilliantly with the female vocal, a statement of intent!
Our first foray into writing unashamedly cool pop. We had the desire to combine edgy, full-on guitars with highly melodic choruses to create a 21st Century sound, influenced by Motown, Madonna and Motorhead!
