“And it ain’t me, it ain’t you, it's only us, it's us right now.” It's a subtly poignant mantra from Spanish/English dance-folk outfit Crystal Fighters , in their recent summer charmer 'You & I'. “It's a stream of consciousness style song about being away from home and travelling,” says lead singer Sebastian Pringle before the band's gig at London's KOKO. “It's about being in a hectic situation and then suddenly finding yourself overwhelmed with love and just wanting to exist with someone else. It's got a [...]

Brooklyn’s quiet achievers YEASAYER have just put out a rendition of the latest Crystal Fighters single “You & I” with their psychedelic touch creating a remix almost unrecognisable. The bustling rhythms and optimistic vibes of the original tune evolve into slow choppy beats and the sing-a-long chorus is replaced by abstract dark vocals. In come swirling loops, hip-hop drums and tons of electronics. Underneath this all lies twinkling synth and a pulsing bass line enriched with the signature Yeasayer hazy sound. It’s not often that the [...]
This remix has a very great production quality as the last one he made with Nervo's track "Reason". Zach Mayer 's new remix of "You & I" sounds very fresh, and definitely it has a summer vibe to it. If you're like me and absolutely want to hear the full song, it’s coming out soon! Keep an eye on it because I think it’ll be a banger. https://soundcloud.com/zachmay er/crystal-fighters-you-i-zach -1 [...]
Fuck Buttons | The Red Wing Yesterday, Pitchfork premiered the first new Fuck Button's material to emerge from the duo's forthcoming Slow Focus LP. It's an edited version, but there's still much to love here; from the abrasive, spiky synths that open it to the beautifully noisy climax. One of our most anticipated records of the year, for sure. * Pins | Stay True Armed with new drummer Sophie Galpin (My [...]
If you're and artist and NYC's Yeasayer gets a hold of your track for a remix, I’m certain you play the original and remix side by side seriously wondering which version is the best. Perfect example is this latest re-work of Crystal Fighters "You & I." Not to say the original isn’t good; however Yeasayer turns this one on its head and spins it around and around for an all new psychedelic feel. Take a listen below and thank me later.
Cuando Crystal Fighters debutaron Star of Love en 2010, tuvieron alto impacto ante los medios europeos. Ofrecían una fusión ideal, un origen exótico para los anglosajones y un lenguaje natural para ese público; música para la pista de baile. Su debut fue una prueba superada. Tras lanzarse a una extensa gira, el grupo decidió emprender un retiro espiritual, un viaje para encontrarse con lo más oscuro de las tradiciones de la cultura vasca; desde las pinturas rupestres, hasta los sonidos que dieron forma a su cultura. Cave Rave , su segunda placa, es el rescate [...]
Crystal Fighters are no strangers to exploring the more spiritual side of music. After all, their first album, 'Star Of Love', was based upon the philosophical writings of singer Laure Stockley's grandfather, and stands as a continuation of the unfinished opera that he penned during his final descent into insanity. With their debut, the Spanish-via-London Basque dance outfit managed to delve deeper into both their ancestry and history, whilst constructing a much more juxtaposing blend of electronic music. Continuing in the vein of their Basque past, the band took the more traditional instruments of their folk [...]
Crystal Fighters live in a universe where it’s perpetually sunny, the DJs never get tired, and the MDMA is far from wearing off. They holed up in the Basque hills of their native Spain to record the music for their second LP, Cave Rave - a title that perfectly encapsulates their earworm electronica and theatrical tendencies. Every second of the album’s 37-minutes goes straight for the jugular, and the band succeeds wildly in fusing traditional Spanish music with ultra-accessible dance beats. Put simply: Cave Rave boasts some of the flat out catchiest tracks you’ll hear all [...]
Crystal Fighters a sorti leur tout nouvel album Cave Rave il y a quelques jours de cela. L'occasion pour Yeasayer de remixer l'un de ses extrait, le morceau You & I . Une version qui mélange rythmes marqués et voix électroniques avec un côté répétitif qui donne ce coté envoutant et entrainant au morceau. Le titre n'est hélas pas en téléchargement gratuit, mais vous pouvez toujours vous le passer en boucle si vous tombez sous son charme.
Bestival is just over three months away now, and so it's about that time where they share another impressive list of acts that have been added to the bill. The festival shared the new additions to the line-up earlier this evening, with British/Spanish psychedelic rockers Crystal Fighters and Glaswegian beat behemoth Hudson Mohawke (who's been working closely with Kanye on his forthcoming album 'Yeezus') both making the cut. Other newly announced acts include Sunday Best signee Valerie June, the hotly-tipped Troumaca, Jon Hopkins and Mancunian DJ legend Greg Wilson. With all these new acts [...]
We already shared Gigamesh's take on Crystal Fighters' song "You & I". The remix we feature today is completely different: it comes from Yeasayer , who totally modify the song. The vocals are reworked in a way that hypnotizes you. In fact, the whole song has an hypnotic atmosphere. We really like this kind of remixes, which are a total re-interpretation of the original, giving an unexpected result.
Crystal Fighters "You & I" keeps getting great remixes! This time the band shared an excellent rework from Brooklyn's four-piece Yeasayer , also included to the extensive remix package, which is very well equipped touching all corners of the electronic scene. This version is completely different from original. The Brooklyn boys decided to add some sort of darkness cinematic atmosphere together with a heavy bassline, adorned by an interesting vocal work. If you're fan of mysterious and enigmatic sounds, you'll be positively surprised by this interpretation. The entire remix package features Gigamesh, Yellow Claw, Sunless 97, Kirk Spencer, [...]

40 weeks of running the Trap here at The Music Ninja, and this weeks playlist is packed full of bangin tunes. Starting with Major Lazer 's take on Macklemore and Ryan Lewis ' hit "Can't Hold Us", and to say the least, they nail it. Next is some Childish Gambino infused Trap step from DJ Reflex featuring squeaky synths and heavy Dub in each drop. Kid Kamilion finally released his highly anticipated track "Say Whut" along with "Sex Panther" and they both go hard. Crizzly dropped hands down the filthiest tune of [...]
