Phoenix are taking no prisoners remixing the singles from their new record Bankrupt! – we’d be surprised if, by the end of this year, they’ve spared any of the record’s songs the re-up treatment. We’ve heard about twenty updates on first single “Entertainment,” so cue RAC’s Andre Allen Anjos to release this dancefloor-ready remix of “Trying to be Cool” – he doesn’t touch the song’s naturally bubbly euro-pop vibe but amps up the bass and Balearic flourishes into something not too far removed from an Ibiza club vibe. Check it out.

Now you can remix Phoenix too!

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
