Free Download: Phoenix – “Entertainment (Blood Orange Remix)”

28 Mar


If it is true that careers can have purple patches, then Dev Hynes must currently be in the midst of a patch so purple it has been classified as the most purple thing in the world by President Purplely Purple of Purple Land. So purple is it that Prince has been heard to exclaim ‘damn, that’s purple’ and Quality Street are thinking of rebranding their Big Purple One chocolate as it cannot compete. What we are trying to say is that he is at the top of his game right now and everything he touches turns to purple gold.

He has always been crazy talented and always been equally prolific, but with under his Blood Orange guise he has reached new heights and seemingly new levels of productivity. As well as crafting his own amazing album, propelling Solange to near-superstardom by co-writing/producing/working on funky choreography, working with and writing for artists such as Sky Ferreira and Diana Vickers, he is now working with the Origibabes, or Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan as they are officially known.

He also remixes.

Sorry we should say, he also remixes brilliantly. With the vocal assistance of the Origibabes he has taken the explosion of colour and sound that was the clarion call of Phoenix’s return from the wildnerness, slowed it the funk down and sexed that groove up to 11. “Entertainment” is now full of the trademark Blood Orange bass vibes, the slightly sleazy undertones and harmonies a-go-go. We know the rest of the world has already blogged this but you know what, we don’t care. It’s worth shouting about.

Listen and download for free below.

Phoenix release their new album, Bankrupt!, on 22 April on Atlantic / Glassnote and play a special one-off (and sold out) London show at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire on the same day.
