About time someone remixed or mashed up Obadiah Parkers old cover of Outkasts ueber anthem. The biggest, most played, most sold song of the 2000’s is Hey Ya and no remix can take that away from the magic of that simple, simple stupid song that we all love so much – and at times even hated, just because it was so overplayed that you couldn’t spend 5 min without hearing it. After all that i still love “Hey ya” and i actually had 2 copies of it on vinyl, not only for mixing it back and forth, in a pre Traktor/Serato world, but also as a backup, because i simply played it so often that one eventually had to go sooner or later. Here is a really good Tropical Take on it and i sure wish it will be included on the next TROPICAL SESSIONS Compilation!
We have been a lively supporter of Lions Head ever since we first heard their first release “Begging”. It was pretty clear that they were gonna blow up really soon with the ear candy they had to offer. So it comes as no surprise that their first official video had to be eye candy. Enjoy it, it’s a soothing piece of video that’s pretty much in tune with the zeitgeisty look and feel of the web and reminds a bit of the intro trailer to True Detective. I got told in their mail, that the video was done on the down low – and that’s just mind-blowing, consiering the quality! Enjoy the video. This song to me is literally #summer2015 . Well done Iggy & Philip.
Pretty much everything i want in a song! Ever since i heard this song, i had it on heavy rotation on my devices and on my mind. In other words: I – am – hooked! The perfect soundtrack for your… everything. Lions Head is bound to be huge, in no time at all, and not only according to the brilliant tropical remixes that are currently floating around! Hell yeah, this is my favourite summer anthem (so far)!
PS They just announced their first ever tour with just one song under their belt! Via LichtdichtBooking, they guys behind Milky Chance.
Share & Support this newcomer while the world still doesn’t know about them!
Being the most prominent ones, the Arctic Monkeys go first.
