Muscles’ royal fever continues abated. Following an ode to Princess Beatrice’s pretzel-shaped headpiece (‘Princess Beatrice and her Royal Hat’)’, the electro oddity/human headline has taken another stab at the monarchy, remixing Australia’s own princess of pop Kylie.
Muscles’ “scorching” club remix of 'Put Your Hands Up' has been included on a limited, three-disc tour edition of Kylie’s most recent album Aphrodite, alongside other remixes by Denzal Park and Pete Hammond.
This isn’t the first time Muscles has had a stab at remixing an Australian pop diety. In 2009, his minimalist techno take on ‘I Love Pop Music’ by Ben Lee was rejected by Lee’s label, prompting this diatribe from his infamous interview with the singer himself.
“I realise that all these people who work at record labels are failed musicians," Muscles told Lee. "They’re wannabe rock stars. And I’m like, ‘We’re the rock stars. Maybe you should listen to us!’”
Muscles’ new double A-side single is due out through Modular on July 1.
