After Ben Moorhouse and Leo a.k.a Ten Fé released Twist Your Arm, their bluesy-electro-stomper produced by Ewan Pearson (Jagwar Ma, M83, The Rapture), which was NME’s New Music of the Day, Line Of Best Fit’s Song of the Day and Hype Machine No. 1, today Ten Fé unveil an exciting new rework by Norwegian DJs and producers Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas.
The original ‘Twist Your Arm’ features slide guitars, chain-gang backing vocals, gospel piano and a Primal Scream / Screamadelica infusion by Pearson. Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas, two of Norway’s biggest names on the electronic music scene have delivered a disco wig-out version.

The band’s 5-track Remix EP, ‘Hit The Light – The Remixes’, will be available on 24 February as a digital download and on limited edition Vinyl.
