Fresh off releasing his debut album, ARIA-nominated album, Danny Harley aka The Kite String Tangle brings his electronic prowess to the table on this mix; taking on the bones of the track and adding his own beats and samples. The sonic architect’s intricate beat-making build to the anthemic hook, propelling the track into a realm of its own. The results are a dance driven, punchy remix, refreshing the #1 dance hit for a new generation of listeners.
Danny Harley said “Fatboy Slim is an untouchable artist and “Praise You” is one of his seminal works. I really can’t imagine the current music landscape without this artist or this song and so to get to put my own touch on it was a humbling experience.”
Alongside TKST, other artists to feature on the release include Set Mo, The Aston Shuffle, Sam La More (also a 2017 ARIA award winner as a member of PNAU), Carmada and LO’99, each tackling hits like “Weapon of Choice” and “Right Here, Right Now” from the GRAMMY Award winning artist.
