Claptone feat. Dizzy – Queen of Ice (Pet Shop Boys Remix)
Our blog has always been about "best under-the-radar music with exclusive comments from the artists". But there are exceptions to every rule. Sometimes we feature music from mainstream acts we really care about, if we manage to get a comment straight from the source – like when Gotye told us
about his love for The Sonics and sent an exclusive photo from the studio. This time we asked the German DJ Claptone to tell us about our new favourite track – the Pet Shop Boys remix of his excellent ballad Queen of Ice
. The remix highlights the original's disco potential turning it into a pop-house banger and adds a nice touch in the form of Neil Tennant's icy vocoded vocals.
