Underground pop duo Claire Hux, made up of Symbol and Dlake are ready to get the dance floor moving with the release of Oh Snap’s Remix of “Grab On”. With a quicker beat, it’s DJ friendly and has an added synth line that will have you feeling like you’re at an Amsterdam rave. “Grab On” is a club anthem that makes it impossible to sit down.
According to the duo the remix is “Exactly what we wanted it to be. We’ve been doing show’s with Oh Snap for the past few years so it made sense for us to team up with this Baltimore native that already has club hits being played around the world.” Claire Hux is following up this infectious dance song with the release of their new EP “Grab On” out on Unruly Records April 12, 2011. Produced by Claire Hux, the digital only release will be available on I-Tunes, and the first single, “ Grab On” is currently available as a free digital download (www.facebook.com/clairehuxmusic)

Beast Van Productions presents Vancouver hip hop artist Kid Lithium’s new video ‘You Ain’t Got Nothing To Say’. The video was shot in the Colorado Desert amongst its surreal landscapes which include Salvation Mountain and The Salton Sea.
To turn Cold War Kids’ anthemic rock tune “Louder Than Ever’ into a hypnotic dreamscape seems like a daunting task, but Active Child has it on lock. Marred lines between thick nightmarish—grim, but not scary—beats and sweet bells lulling into nocturne do just the trick. The dichotomy creates lush atmosphere, equally as addictive as the original. Their album Mine Is Yours is out now on Downtown.
It’s All True, the bold new album from JUNIOR BOYS, will be released on June 14th around the world (save the UK, which will release on June 20th). The release will be preceded by the release of the 12″ and digital single for the epic 9-minute “Banana Ripple,” which will come with remixes by The Field and legendary disco mixer Tom Moulton. As part of the album announcement, Domino is offering a free download of the album track “ep” at the following link and is available now:
The striking image included with this announcement is a detail of the album’s cover, a deceptively abstract image taken by Jeremy Greenspan’s sister of the UK Pavilion in Shanghai, China. Greenspan made an extended visit to Shanghai to write and begin recording It’s All True. Traces of the influence of the trip can not only be seen but heard in tracks like the album opener “Itchy Fingers” whose exotic middle eight features local musicians Greenspan recorded during his sojourn. With much of the album composed and conceived, Greenspan returned to his native Hamilton, Ontario
and was joined by Matthew Didemus to record in earnest at the band’s recently constructed studio where Greenspan had recently mixed and recorded a few tracks on Caribou’s most recent album, Swim.
From the word “go,” It’s All True has a spring in its step as opening track “Itchy Fingers” features lofty bpms in a range never explored on record by the group before and then, just as suddenly, the band shift gears to the sparse, brooding “Playtime.” From the confident stomp of “You’ll Improve
Me” and the sophisticated pop of “A Truly Happy Ending” to the epic album closer of “Banana Ripple,” It’s All True is by far the Junior Boys most accomplished album to date.
Junior Boys will be touring around the world in 2011 with their first dates kicking off in early June in Canada, to be followed by extensive touring of the US and Europe. Dates to be announced soon.
