THAT'S WHAT WE CALL IT.

We first introduced you to Grouplove (then known simply as Group) last March via the world premier of their triumphant anthem "Colours", which now 12 months on is set to become the band's debut single when it sees release via our sister label Chess Club next month. The original still sounds every bit as vital and refreshing now as it did when we debuted it last spring, but now breathing new life into it is the literally amazing Captain Cuts remix, another Neon Gold premier courtesy of the band's drummer/producer Ryan Rabin and his writing partner Ryan McMahon. Simply put, this is MASSIVE - all monumental bass surges, staccato piano stabs and frontman Christian Zucconi's frantic vocals running rampant across the mix as the original is transformed into an empire-toppling pop behemoth. The Captains even throw in a little stretch of epic dubstep wobble in the mix about halfway through that just comes out of nowhere to completely change the game and knock the listener for six. Seriously, we know the year is only seven days old and it's a bit early for Best of 2011 proclamations, but we'll be stunned if we hear a better remix in the next twelve months. Get involved.

Pretty sweet! I love this band. Can't wait until I can get my hands on the album. I don't pay for many, but you'll be seeing my money for the sheer enjoyment you've brought my life.

Wow, best remix I've heard in a very long time... doesn't just drage on like a house remix for 12 minutes repeating the same line... they actually made it an amazing pop song... i heard mcmahon and rabin channel their inner magic by touching eachother softly on the butt while making their remixes. Keep up the good work guys.

I just want to thank the SHIT outta you guys for posting this song back in March! It has been a top-5 favorite ever since, and I cannot WAIT to hear what else is coming up! I don't fully understand why they changed their name to grouplove, but whatever. If they called themselves Scabby Sex I'd probably still love it just as much.
