Hot Chip 'Has Remixes' on New EP
According to Hot Chip's own Joe Goddard, "These are some of our favorite producers, people that we have been following for years and have been friends with for years as well in some cases," so having these interpretations released as an official EP is a pretty big deal. This is going to be HOT. I for one am especially looking forward to hearing Todd Edwards' "space age garage retake" of "Hand Me Down Your Love" as well as Osborne's "lounge house version" of "Take It In."
As if a new remix EP isn't enough for Hot Chip fans to get excited about, the boys are set to to embark on a new North American tour this fall, supporting LCD Soundsystem on their tour.

Hot Chip also launched an MXP4-powered interactive version of their current single "I Feel Better," available now on the group's Facebook page. The interactive release will allow fans to play with the remixes in a video game-like format. Right through Facebook, fans will be able to putz around with mixes by powerhouse producers including Richard X and Den Haan. Awesome! The Facebook app also features a variety of other multi-media content including the song's music video directed by Peter Serafinowicz. What's more, the application allows for easy sharing and embedding across various social media platforms including blogs, Twitter, Facebook and more. Amazing!
