Sydney duo Calling In Sick have fallen off the pace a touch since they first burst onto the scene a couple of years ago with remixes of the Bag Raiders and Midfield General to name but a few, but it appears they're back as polished as ever with their latest remix effort of Melbourne-based Cullen.
As the press release tells me, Cullen is a one man musical enterprise who combines multiple instruments to 'evoke the raw sentiment of Deathcab for Cutie plied with the textured electronics of Royksopp and the off-kilter pop sensibilities of Phoenix all united under the banner of his singular, soaring vocals'. So if that's your biscuit then I suggest you jump on board.
This remix from Calling In Sick of the track "Easily Impressed" does soar. It reminds me of some of the recent work by Def Starr, how ever the progression and bass line is this piece gives it a lot more edge. Definitely one for fans of synth laden disco and leather shoes. Don't sleep on this bad boy.
