(New York, NY)– To herald the release of their new EP, We Have Remixes, on Sept 7th, Hot Chip will be bringing their explosive live show back to North America in October supporting LCD Soundsystem. The band will also go interactive via MXP4-powered release allowing fans to play with remixes of their top 20 Billboard dance hit “I Feel Better.”
We Have Remixes features alternative versions of tracks by inspirational producers. From Todd Edwards’ space age garage retake on “Hand Me Down Your Love” to Osborne’s lounge house version of “Take It In”; Caribou’s electro-acid fried reconstruction of “Brothers” to Hot City’s deranged rave revival attack on “We Have Love”, We Have Remixes manages to pull together a selection of the very best dancefloor manipulators in the world right now.
We Have Remixes tracklisting:
01. Hand Me Down Your Love (Todd Edwards Micro Chip Remix) 6.46
02. We Have Love (Hot City Remix) 4.59
03. Brothers (Caribou Remix) 5.09
04. Take It In (Osborne Remix) 7.16
Of the remixers, Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard says, “These are some of our favourite producers, people that we have been following for years and have been friends with for years as well in some cases.”
Hot Chip is also proud to announce the launch of an MXP4-powered interactive version of the band’s latest single, “I Feel Better”. The second release from Hot Chip’s latest album One Life Stand, “I Feel Better” is now available online as an MXP4-powered application at www.facebook.com/hotchip.
The interactive release gives fans a video game-like experience, enabling them to play with remixes of “I Feel Better” by producers including Richard X and Den Haan. The application is fully integrated into Hot Chip’s Facebook page, creating strong fan engagement by having them interact with “I Feel Better” right on the Facebook page.
The application also features multi-media content, including the notorious “I Feel Better” video directed by comedian Peter Serafinowicz, and fans using the interactive application are also able to easily share it through blogs, Twitter, Facebook and other popular viral and social media platforms.

Here’s what some critics have said of their sold-out live shows this past April:
“…and made their dance-pop feel spontaneous and organic and warm thanks to touches like the steel drums on ‘One Night Stand.’” – SPIN.com
“With wobbly electronic rhythms and a command of the drippy, semi-ironic disco ballad, Hot Chip plays wistful but still snarky dance music.” – New York Times
