Red Bull Studio Roundup: The Frown



There have been a slew of remixes of The Frown’s “Metallic Kiss” over the past few weeks, most of which are really good. We’re very happy, however, to be releasing the Petite Noirversion on our Red Bull Studio Soundcloud, for a couple of reasons. Mainly because we’re super amped to have brought the artistic meteors that are Eve Rakow and her motley crew of merry music makers that make up the Frown, and the one-man creative powerhouse, Yannick Illunga, whose Petite Noir project has been receiving much acclaim as of late, together.

We’re also stoked because, well, frankly the original “Metallic Kiss” is one of our favourite Electronica tracks of the year so far, and Yannick’s remix takes it down a dark, wooded path into a mutant version of Witch-House, a self-proclaimed genre he calls ‘Noir Wave’, and it makes for some pretty fresh and exciting music.

So listen and download as you please, and keep posted to the Red Bull Studio’s online pages for more from the Frown and Petite Noir, two acts we expect great things from this year.

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
