This Boys Noize remix of Poliça’s ‘Kind’ is totally my buzz.

The original features on the band’s United Crushers LP but just came out alongside remixes by Task Force and Fog on a new EP.

Of the remix, Boys Noize says he was inspired by the vocal to go “90s vogue house.”

“I ended up going for this 90s Vogue House-inspired dub mix because I just wanted to hear [the lyric] ‘fever high, fever high’ in the club.”

It is, a banger.

Poliça are on tour and play Dublin this Saturday night.

Next weekend, Other Voices moves to Derry for the second time to shoot the second leg of its current season after December’s regular recordings in Dingle. Performances from Public Service Broadcasting, Bell X1, The Gloaming, Poliça and East India Youth are lined up for the Glassworks in the city and I have a pair of tickets to give away to Sunday’s gig featuring The Gloaming, Poliça, George Ezra and East India Youth. Enter below.

Also happening in Derry next weekend, there’s Banter discussions, the Other Voices Music Trail, an Annie Mac night, OneTwoOneTwo music documentary festival showing Mistaken For Strangers and lots more.

Do remember though, if you don’t make it to Derry, the gigs next weekend will be streamed live on RTE.ie and guardian.co.uk too.

In the Christmas rush, I totally missed the announcement that Other Voices Derry will have Bell X1 and Poliça at the Glassworks in the city from February 7th to 9th. Today they’ve added George Ezra and recent Northern Irish album of the year winner Foy Vance.

Also in Derry this year will be the IMRO Other Room, Banter and the Music Trail. Applications for the Other Room are open til tomorrow at noon for bands to apply.

Tickets will be given away via competitions and you can start with this. This is what happened in Derry last year.

New songs you should hear this week…

I’ve decided to switch up the format here a bit so you get to read about about the tracks in question for some more context if wanted. I’m going to feature 10 of the tracks in that way and then post the playlist every week with bonus tracks worthy of your time (if you have more of it to give). So here are my top tracks of the week:
