“We all agreed we needed a visual for the track, so we elicited the help of some talented friends here in Toronto – Chris Muir, Aaron A, Sonia Grey, Stuart Campbell, Sam Chang-Garder – to bring it all together. The boys had said that they just wanted me and SYF to ‘be ourselves’ and basically gave us carte blanche,” Fritz Helder tells FACT Magazine (2/4/14).
“We just love looking at the guys, so when it came to the video we knew that if the guys just did what they do for 3 minutes it would be nothing less than entertaining. We think we were definitely right,” adds Yolanda Be Cool about the video.
Yolanda Be Cool recently released the first half of the two-part All That She Wants remix EP on Dim Mak Records with the second half set for release February 18. On the package, Yolanda Be Cool join forces with SYF and Fritz Helder—the singers’ first piece of work together since Azari & III recently disbanded—to resurrect the Ace Of Base ‘90s pop classic in a cool, brooding, chugging fashion. The EP includes the original version from Yolanda Be Cool and features remixes from a cast of rising producers including Human Life, Walker & Royce, Plastic Plates, Wordlife, and Go Freek.
Spearheading the hefty remix package, Defected Records and Hot Creations artist Human Life takes things a shade darker on his expansive, synth-heavy rework. New York house duo Walker & Royce offer up a demure, subtle, deep house version as well as a futuristic, deep space dub mix, while Kitsuné artist Plastic Plates opts for a slinky electro synth jam. Fellow Aussies Wordlife go for jacking, rave-infused flex and Go Freek aim for the jugular with their blend of gnarly acid and ‘90s house bassline. There’s something for every taste in the remix package, transforming the deep and dark original into something that will rock a wide array of dance floors.
Other recent releases from Yolanda Be Cool for Dim Mak Records include their “Sweat Naked” single and accompanying remix EP, the Before Midnight remix EP, and the full-length album Ladies & Mentalmen.
