cirKus offers up a sweet slice of UK electro-soul with their new single "Bells", while two remixers reimagine the groovy tune.
 

UK producer Cameron McVey, who has produced the work of Massive Attack, Tricky and Portishead, as well as that of his wife trip-hopper Neneh Cherry, formed cirKus back in 2006 with DJ Matt Karmil. They’ve since added Neneh Cherry and Lolita Moon to the mix to become a quartet and just released their second album, Medicine. Today we offer up two remixes of single “Bells”. You check out the original in video form after the jump. The Bedsit remix completely reimagines the piece from the top down, removing the vocals and producing a jagged, techno thumper. Eli Escobar stays truer to the original, focusing on generating a mellow groove.
