We’re really excited that Confidence Man are making their way to the UK this month for a run of shows and festival appearances. It will be the bands UK live debut and we can’t wait.
To co-inside with the band landing here, Jono Ma has remixed the bands current single ‘Bubblegum.’ NME Magazine have the premiere:
He’s “one of our favourite Aussie producers”, says Janet Planet – she calls it “a sweet treat for your ears and feet”.
Jono, meanwhile, has this to say about his remix: “The original has all the peaks and troughs of a late ’90s breaks banger à la Fat Boy Slim… I felt it was my duty to focus in on the more subtle body-rubbing elements of the track. Namely: the bongos, the bassline and all those bubble pops. Annoyingly, I was late submitting the remix, it took me weeks to realise the track still needed more cowbell!! I’m an eeeediot!”
Last month we dropped the Andrew Weatherall remix of ‘Bubblegum’ which is available to download here.
The high energy band have been making waves in their native country for their spritely live shows. If you don’t believe us check out the live video of the band performing at Australian festival, Golden Plains here.
