In My Arms is Kylies current single released at the same time as Wow. I was very excited for this single seeing as Spitzer was commissioned to remix Kylie. Spitzer, if you remember is an up and coming electronic duo hailing from la France. Here’s a blurb from their MySpace.
“Hidden behind “Spitzer” are two Rock brought-up brothers. Two brothers who got breast-fed in their earlier years by Axl Rose and Jimmy Page. After 7 years of faithful and loyal services towards the Indie music scene, they decided to abandon their mediator and drumsticks for a new passion. They found themselves utterly seduced by the synthetic environment and the animal beats of Techno. Musicians, and now producers, their music became a hit amongst bloggers on the net. The blogosphere was amazed by the twilight dark ambiance and the frenetic robotic sound of some of their tracks available on the Web. Understandably backed up by the whole electro Lyon community, booked by the Festival des Nuits sonores, they were also called by Kylie Minogue to create a crazy remix, that is still very secret. Track after track, Spitzer creates a new map without boundaries nor rules, frenetic and grandiose techno music set in between Nathan Fake’s grandiloquence and the rhythmic scathing of Trentmoller. Sought by many labels, Spitzer is already cooking some new remixes and is
working to finalise their first EP, “Roller Coaster”. The two brothers will also start an Australian tour beginning April 2008. The two Spitzer brothers will road trip from one club to another and get the dance floor groovin’.”
I actually love every mix in this ep, which is rare. The Spitzer remix is dirty and catchy, while the Chris Lake remix features the synths from the original tracks. Enjoy!

Here is Spitzer, an Electronic duo consisting of brothers Damien & Matthieu from Lyon, France. (Why do Europeans always do it better?) At the risk of sounding terrible cliché, I’m going to have to classify their sound as a fusion of Daft Punk and Justice, but a f’ing awesome fusion of Daft Punk and Justice. With a garage band background, the duo know how to add that harder-edge to the traditional techno sound.
Their first EP entitled Rollercoaster is in the works, and from what I’ve heard so far, it’s going to be a big hit. I posted one of my favorite tracks below called Disco Biscuits.
Take a listen, and check out their MySpace.
