Roisin Murphy Releases ‘Evil Eyes’ Remix EP


It was a long, hard wait for fans of Roisin Murphy between her 2007 album, Overpowered, and the follow-up, Hairless Toys, which only came out a couple of months ago. But now it seems like there’s no stopping the Irish songbird. Not only is she touring all over Europe this summer and fall, Roisin is about to release a six-track remix EP based around the track “Evil Eyes” from her new album. It’s due out July 31, 2015 via the Play It Again Sam label, and she’s lined up a pretty impressive array of talent to assist her in the remix department.

Hercules & Love Affair lead the pack, occupying the first two tracks of the EP and offering up not only a straight-up remix but also a dub version. Following that are versions overseen by Claptone, Catz ‘N Dogz, and a team-up between Severino of Horse Meat Disco fame and Nico de Ceglia.

By the time all is said and done, the tune has been twisted into all sorts of intriguing shapes, treading into techno, deep house and other territories. Take a roll through the Hercules & Love Affair remix below to whet your appetite for the rest.
