Hot Chip drummer Grovesnor - "Taxi From The Airport" - dEbruit Remix

While not drumming for Hot Chip, Rob Smoughton moonlights as Grovesnor, blending silky vocals with retro synth melodies.

Grovesnor - Taxi From The Airport

In anticipation of the May 25, 2010 release of his Lo Recordings solo debut Soft Return, Grovesnor is releasing a remix of his first single off Soft Return, "Taxi From The Airport".

Remixed by Parisian "synth magician" dÉbruit, the track begins by piling milky harmonies on a half time, handclap-heavy beat. Where the original version conjures visions of a giddy taxi ride back from the airport, the remix is reminiscent of riding in a taxi after taking the red-eye, dawn beginning to break.

Between touring with Hot Chip (and opening select dates), Grovesnor, originally a solo live act, will tour the UK and US with a full six-piece band in support of Soft Return later this year.

"Barry White grappling in a water bed with Brian Eno." - The Guardian

"No, not Lionel Richie's 'Hello.' Nor Steve Winwood's 'While You See A Chance.' Nope, not even Genesis' 'Man on the Corner.' When you listen to UK electro-pop outfit Hot Chip's new DJ Kicks mix, the first sounds you hear are the curiously smooth synths of Grovesnor...which carries the futuristic soul DNA of all those 1980s oldies..." - Pitchfork
