The Baron of Techno’s long association with Ireland has always been immense, from visiting the country as a touring DJ religiously for many, many years, to his world famous ‘White Noise’ radio show on RTE. Dave Clarke is a firm favourite along these shores
Now, the legendary techno DJ and producer has even further slipped into Irish hearts, by remixing Dublin band the Fontaines D.C. ‘Televised Mind’. Dave Clarke twists the track into a robust, chugging slice of full-vocal punk-funk that marries the raw, musical attitude of the band and Clarke.
“Fontaines D.C… what can I say except they exude authenticity. One day in Rotterdam in mid-July 2020, I got an Instagram direct message from the label offering me the vinyl as they spotted I was a fan. Within a day, it was established that a remix also made sense too, so out of the blue came something wonderful.” – Dave Clarke
‘Televised Mind’ was initially released in June 2020 on Fontaines D.C.’s Grammy Nominated second LP, ‘A Hero’s Death’, becoming a critical and commercial hit. Dave Clarke’s remix follows the Soulwax remix of the title track, released earlier this year on a limited run of hand-stamped vinyl.
Fontaines D.C. ‘Televised Mind (Dave Clarke Remix)’ is released on today digitally, plus on 12” release on 13th August. Order and pre-order here.
