FRANKMUSIK + BOYS NOIZE.

Scouting for one of London's preeminent music lawyers two summers ago, I was in office the day Frankmusik's demo EP arrived from Brighton and witnessed firsthand the ensuing outburst of hyperbole regarding showstealer "When You're Around", on which our young pop hero takes The Stranglers' early-80's classic "Golden Brown" and gives it a 21st century electro makeover. Chopping up the song's timeless harpsichord riff and upping the BPM, Frankmusik reworks 1981 chart-topper into a dancefloor burner and his best track to date. The original remains under wraps until its inevitable single release, but here's a faithful Boys Noize remix of the track, oven fresh and straight out of the studio.

It's not a remix. I think Boys Noize produced his album.

this was sent to me by his promo company as the boys noize mix - i'm kind of suspicious as well as the demo i heard way back when was nearly identical, though this is obviously more professionally produced. that said, i believe it's actually stuart price who's producing the record, so i'm not sure where boys noize fits in beyond a remixing capacity.

I think this is really nice, nearly as good as the original song
