These New Puritans remix for free

You just need to tweet! A summer gift to bring us on holidays with you: download These New Puritans remix of our Another Pusher only sending a tweet. The initiative coming from an idea of Leif Abraham e Christian Behrendt (Innovative Thunder) is based on the value of each user social network, considering an optimal way of payment. It’s a way of social payment which gives a chance to Foolica Records and DID to offer contents free of charges to followers! The track selected is a remix: These New Puritans, coming from recently issue of “Hidden”, commit themselves to remix DID and release an “Another Pusher” version in flawless balance between both bands’ style: dark, danceable, crushing! Released in January as single “Hello Hello” AA side (you can buy vinyl 7" here) taken out from Kumar Solarium was mastered in New York by Alan Douches (West West Side Music).

You mention us, we reward you!

Next Gigs :

14/07 : Fontanamara (Mineo, Catania)
15/07 : La Factory (Siracusa)
16/07 : Barbarabeach (Catania)
17/07 : Bocadillo (Trapani)

Tomorrow is the day

New release for DID after debut album KUMAR SOLARIUM in october 2009. This time it’s a double A side on vinyl 7’’: A side Hello Hello (overwhelming Kumar Solarium ouverture!) AA side Another Pushed remixed by These New Puritans.

As usual for us (but maybe this time more!) we liked go the whole hog: 2 tracks (on a unique transparent vinyl) as usual mastered in New York by Alan Douches (West West Side Music) were slot in a packaging made by Alessandro Saglietti with collaboration of Andrew Davidhazy, a real contemporary photography guru, pioneer during the sixties of Strip Aerial Photography technique.

Combined with 7’’ single will be release Hello Hello Videoclip filmed by Roman rappak, young director, en vogue among english bands. This single is a declaration of internationality coming from the band that decide to bring to lite some of their co-operations with foreigners bands. What catch you is the remixing naturalness (first time ever) of the english band: TNPS work is incredibile in essential features: TNPS playing DID and the other way round!
Styles, behaviours which melt down in searching the edge!

Two faces of the same coin!

To purchase the single:

Clearly the title of this post is a joke.

We are not talking about a proper fan this time (and actually we will never do ahah), just about a some-kind-of.
This sexy man here is Beppe, Andrea P's father, as well as the official chef for the band. This saturday (we play in Turin) we will definitely have dinner at Beppe's with our tour manager Victor Kwality and Foxhound, we will talk about them in another post...
Well, Beppe had this wonderful idea: he took the Rolling Stone copy with our picture on it and put that on a plush.. The unmistakable trash postcard style make us wonder about a possible merch like this. WE LOVE IT, this is pure class man!
and NYLON! check this out for your next video.

It's been a while since we started to remix some good friends of us. Hatcham Social is one of our favourite band and they are definitely beautiful friends so we tried to give a new colour to their new amazing single "Sidewalk", from their perfect debut "You Dig The Tunnel I'll Hide The Soil".

Never heard about NYLON. Apparently is one of the most important fashion mag..so here's a link to their website. They choose Time For Shopping (shirt vs T shirt rmx) to soundtrack one of their video..


I take the opportunity to link the Shirt VS T-Shirt myspace page, friand of us. Lovely remixers.
