Cologne trio SPARKLING team up with Metronomy’s Anna Prior for her remix of EP lead single ‘C’est Ma Vie’, released November 23rd via Moshi Moshi Records (Anna Meredith, Du Blonde, Girl Ray).
Detailing the origins of their collaboration, the group stated: “‘C’est Ma Vie’ is about struggling with self-confidence and reassuring yourself that you have the power to break out of it. We really love Anna highlighting that bright side of optimism and lightness in the track with her vocals. She added a warm, carefree disco feeling that makes you dance under open sky, with a breath of fresh air watching the stars - while reminding yourself, that this is your life!”
Prior added: “"I knew this song deserved a special, addictive bassline and the Cumbia-inspired groove I created provided instant satisfaction. I expect nobody to leave the dancefloor while this song is playing! This remix is Europe, via Latin America”.
Hailing from a city that birthed the likes of Krautrock, and with LCD Soundsystem’s Al Doyle and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard on production reins for their upcoming EP, SPARKLING’s remarkable progression shows no boundaries, having already attracted praise from the likes of Brooklyn Vegan, Clash and Dork, as well as support across the BBC Radio 1 (Jack Saunders) and BBC 6 Music (Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq) airwaves.
