It was a long, hard wait for fans of Roisin Murphy between her 2007 album, Overpowered, and the follow-up, Hairless Toys, which only came out a couple of months ago. But now it seems like there’s no stopping the Irish songbird. Not only is she touring all over Europe this summer and fall, Roisin is about to release a six-track remix EP based around the track “Evil Eyes” from her new album. It’s due out July 31, 2015 via the Play It Again Sam label, and she’s lined up a pretty impressive array of talent to assist her in the remix department.
Hercules & Love Affair lead the pack, occupying the first two tracks of the EP and offering up not only a straight-up remix but also a dub version. Following that are versions overseen by Claptone, Catz ‘N Dogz, and a team-up between Severino of Horse Meat Disco fame and Nico de Ceglia.
By the time all is said and done, the tune has been twisted into all sorts of intriguing shapes, treading into techno, deep house and other territories. Take a roll through the Hercules & Love Affair remix below to whet your appetite for the rest.

Started in Washington, D.C. full of energy! We’ve played at U Street Music Hall many times already and it’s definietly one of the most professional clubs in the US. We already have a good relationship with everybody that works there and the cool thing about the club is there is always a lot of professional dancers so we always play some broken beats and then some hip-hop at the end. If our flight from NYC hadn’t been delayed for three hours it would have been even more fun!
After pre-party in D.C. on the way to Detroit, it was perfect weather for DEMF weekend. On the plane we decided that we were going to play a lot of classics, so since it’s our first time and it’s always been a dream to play there we thought this is the right way to do it! Pulled out a mashup of The Prodigy and our tune “They Frontin’.”
