‘Ordinary Madness’, one of the many highlights from Joe Goddard’s new album Electric Lines, has been given the remix treatment by RAC. The Grammy Award-winning electronic artist (real name: Andre Allen Anjos) who won for his remix of Bob Moses’ ‘Tearing Me Up’ in 2017, strips back the pop bombast of the original, laying bare the delicate vocals of British singer Jess Mills and highlighting Goddard’s skilful songwriting, honed over the course of his 20 year career.
Says RAC about the remix:
“I’ve been a fan of Joe’s and Hot Chip for so long that it was truly an honor to work on his material. I tried to take the song in a more mellow direction. I wanted her vocals to be up close and intimate, as if singing in your ear. I even used my childhood guitar, which has a worn-in quality to it.”
The remix is available via all digital services today.
Joe Goddard was a Glastonbury MVP last weekend, bringing his brand new live show to the Park Stage, where his single ‘Home’ was received like the true summer anthem it is. Goddard DJed another six parties across the 4 day Glastonbury weekend. He’ll spend the next two months playing festivals and shows across Europe, for all dates head here.
All about connections, the title of Joe Goddard’s new album Electric Lines refers to the colourful cables that link the modules in his Eurorack synthesizer and to the invisible wires that run between all the different kinds of electronic music that he loves. An apt title for a record which brilliantly unites the strands of his prolific career: member of Hot Chip and the 2 Bears, songwriter, producer, DJ, Grammy award nominated remixer and co-founder of the Greco-Roman label.
Electric Lines is available now on 2xLP heavyweight vinyl, CD with a 6-page artwork booklet, and digital download.
Vinyl and CD both feature completely unique, separate artwork.
