Holy Ghost! just dropped their juicy remix of ‘Two Brothers’ in anticipation of a massive spring schedule. Their remix incorporates a fantastic arrangement of brass, guitar stabs, and keyboard melodies for a funky take on Hanni El Khatib’s original.
Holy Ghost! is a Brooklyn-based duo comprised of Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser. Their penchant for cross-genre collaboration and studio-prowess has earned them a solid following and led to a remarkable sonic evolution.
On May 5th, Holy Ghost! will be releasing Work For Hire, a collection of quintessential remixes which chronicles their work over the last eight years. In addition to three previously unreleased tracks, the album will feature their classic remixes of Moby, Cut Copy, LCD Soundsystem, Phoenix, and more. To support the release, Holy Ghost! will embark on an all-vinyl North American DJ tour starting May 7th. It’s going to be quite the spectacle, so don’t sleep on grabbing tickets.
Here are Alex’s thoughts on Work For Hire.
Letting our remixes go has always been kind of hard. We labor over them for weeks, often reproducing every element of the song from drums to vocals, and really try to give them as much life and love as we would an original song.
To see them all here, done over so many years but now in one comprehensive collection, side by side, is amazing. It’s also kind of like looking at our own musical timeline. You can hear us developing as producers, having fun, experimenting, and – above all else – working. This album is a scrapbook of our work and time together.
In addition to their extensive collection of remixes, the duo has released two original albums; the self-titled debut Holy Ghost! (2011) and their sophomore Dynamics (2013).
