News : The Whitest Boy Alive – Golden Cage (Fred Falke Remix)

 Tuesday, April 15th 2008, 11:36 pm

The Whitest Boy Alive - A bunch of geeks!

This has to be THE tune of the summer! I’d never heard of The Whitest Boy Alive but as soon as I heard the Essential Selection last week and this tune kicked in, I immediately recognised the distinctive vocals of one of my favourite singers, Erlend Øye from Kings Of Convenience.

Now Fred Falke has turned this moody little tune into an amazing summer anthem by adding some great electric pianos, a classic Falke bassline and a haunting main synth line. All of that extra production complements Erlend’s haunting vocals and I seriously can’t hear this tune enough.

Check it out on You Tube below:

Here’s the original mix too if you want to hear it. Not as funky as Fred Falke’s mix but it’s still got a nice vibe about it and Erlend’s wicked vocal style.

    yeah, Pete Tong’s Essential Selection really is huge, but still not as funky as yours, so, hope you come out with some new podcast or with that classic mix…

    @Florian: New one should appear at the weekend mate. Hoping to get it done on Saturday or Sunday.

    @Architect: YouTube amazes me. It has almost every tune I’ve ever heard on there and even manages to get promos up there too. New podcast should arrive soon and I’ll try and get a classic mix sorted as soon as I can.
