I’m a big fan of 12″ extended remixes – the kind that were prevalent in the eighties and that most of the great pop songs of the era have. Think of extended versions made for the dancefloor of Madonna’s ‘Into The Groove’, Inner City’s ‘Good Life’ or Womack & Womack ‘Teardrops’.

Kildare duo Mix & Fairbanks know the value of a good club edit (and a great debut single) and so too, it seems, do Le Boom. The electro-pop pairing of Christy Leech and Aimee Mallon turned heads with their brilliant debut single ‘What We Do’ and now with summer 2017 approaching M&F have given that tune the extended 10-minute remix treatment before more new material arrives later this year. Catch Le Boom at the Nialler9 Music Cork show on Thursday (comment below for a guaranteed entry wristband) and on May 25th at Bello Bar in Dublin for Nialler9 and Hoembeat’s Future Proof with Ailbhe Reddy and Soulé.

Mix & Fairbanks meanwhile play Vinyl Love for Repeal this Sunday as well as BARE in the Woods and Life Festival.

There’s also a radio edit of the remix too:

Catch Le Boom live festivals this summer including: Forbidden Fruit Festival, Body & Soul, Sea Sessions, Townlands Carnival, Truck Festival (UK), Sunflower Fest, Castlepalooza and Indiependence

Digital release: Wednesday 17th May.
