French indie-pop due The Penelopes have tabbed English producer Mighty Mouse to remix their new single “Mulholland Drive,” taken from the group’s upcoming EP, Leave Them All Behind. Mighty Mouse takes the nostalgic, disco and 80’s influenced song, strips it back and then bridges the 80’s and modern dance era.
Mighty Mouse adds rolling synths that keep the nostalgic 80’s feel of the original and then completes the picture with modern progressive house that will glide across a dance floor. It finds a way to be both upbeat and relaxing, melding together euphoric elements with a strong bass line.
“I’ve had a difficult time personally for the last two years and haven’t been in a position to make as much music as I’d hoped,” admits Mighty Mouse to Magnetic. “But I’m looking forward to sharing a lot of new music this year. When the guys sent me ‘Mulholland Drive,’ I loved the song and knew it was perfect for Mighty Mouse.”
The hypnotic remix will be released next Friday, August 4, as a part of the Leave Them All Behind EP. Stream the tune here until then.
