Review: Having parted ways with Bloc Party, singer Kele Okereke has been on an electro-inspired mission of late - hooking up with XXXChange for his own solo album The Boxer and now joining Parisian hit machine Martin Solveig on this latest single. With a stadium-sized mix of whirring bass, epic trance-shaped chords and Kele's power-lungs, Solveig creates an almighty banger while Dutch superstar Hardwell works up an equally huge and punishing mix that makes great use of the original's chorus chords. French electro-trance player Arno Cost also drops a winning mix that saves the vocals for the breakdowns whilst filling the verses with driving pianos and live snares.
Big In Japan (Ziggy Stardust mix) - (5:26) 128 BPM
Big In Japan (Les Bros mix) - (5:30) 128 BPM
Big In Japan (Denzal Park mix) - (6:44) 128 BPM
Big In Japan (Thom Syma mix) - (5:51) 128 BPM
Review: Now an established partnership, after huge singles including "Hello" and "Boys & Girls", Canadian electro band Dragonette join forces with producer Martin Solveig for this new single taken from Solveig's recent album "Smash". While their original employs a relatively simple mix of chanted vocals and skewed synth chords, remixes from Ziggy Stardust, Les Bros, Denzai Park and Thom Syma add a bigger, club-sized alternative set of mixes of this indie/dance hybrid.
