Legendary dance act Orbital have unveiled a remix of Fontaines D.C.’s In Ár Gcroíthe Go Deo, the opening track from recent album Skinty Fia.
The Hartnoll brothers bring rave-era breakbeats and their signature synth patterns to their remix of the Dublin band’s track, which is released on 13 September.
Fontaines D.C., which are currently embarking on a US arena tour with Arctic Monkeys, are set to release a digital deluxe edition of Skinty Fia later this month, which features this Orbital remix, among other tracks.
Orbital aren’t the first electronic act to offer their take on a Fontaines D.C. remix, with Dave Clarke previously issuing a remix of Televised Mind, and Soulwax offering up their take on A Hero’s Death.
As a press release to accompany the release puts it, the remix features ‘scintillating synths under spine-tingling vocals. Bristling jungle breakbeats eventually arrive to get the dance floor moving, and the pair’s signature sense of all-consuming electronic energy takes over as the track evolves through flashing, rave-ready synth sequences that will make an indelible impact in the club’.
