Joe and Will Ask Remix a Moloko Classic, Vikings Night Changes Venues
UK dance music lovers, I have a massive treat for you. Joe and Will Ask's Vikings night is moving to The Shacklewell Arms, Dalston, a joint venture between members of Field Day, Pub on the Park and Eat Your Own Ears. To celebrate this fantastic news, Joe and Will Ask are sharing a brand new remix of the 2000 Moloko hit, "The Time Is Now."
Moloko - The Time Is Now (Joe and Will Ask Vs Kiwi Remix) by Joe And Will Ask
The song originally appeared on the electropop group's third album, Things To Make and Do and went on to be nominated for Best British Single at the 2001 BRIT Awards, losing to Robbie Williams' "Rock DJ." Originally remixed by Can 7, Francois K, and Bambino, now we have an instant classic from Joe and Will Ask and special collaborator (and this month's special guest), Kiwi (AKA Alex Warren). According to the boys, Kiwi's involvement happened quite organically:
"Alex (Kiwi) has been a good friend of ours for a while, and he completely blew us away with his last couple of DJ sets. We decided to go to the studio with no plan and just to have some fun, and for some reason this Moloko track came up. We absolutely love it, and had wanted to do a version of the track that we could play out for ages but never found the right way to do it, but after a couple of hours with Alex, we had pretty much nailed it! We wanted to keep as much of the original as possible while giving it the open-air summer roof party sort of feel with the bassline. We're so happy to have him playing at Vikings!"Vikings (now at The Shacklewell Arms) is a club night like no other. Brought to you by "dance music pioneers," Joe and Will Ask, Vikings takes place on the final Thursday of each month and features Joe and Will spinning into the wee hours of the morning.
"With Vikings you can guarantee a few things; the line up will be major, the atmosphere electric and the night itself will be memorable. Having brought the likes of Boy 8 Bit, Matt Wlash, Bowski, Eskimo Twins & Coin Operated Boy to some of London's most intimate venues, Vikings always provides some riotous tomfoolery."Reason #1,045,450,000 that I wish I lived in London.
