What does a group do when their first full length garners critical acclaim and promising sales? Well, when almost a year has passed with nothing to show for it, they release a remix EP with some cool, famous friends twisting the knobs. Well, thatís exactly the plan for Ladytron. The electro-pop quartet recruited Chicks on Speedís Tobias Neumann, Zombie Nation, Simian Playboy, I Monster, and Felix Glitz Clubhead to each create their own version of the track "Playgirl." No word on what the title will be, though "Playgirl" would be a safe bet.
To commemorate the release, Ladytron members Mira Aroyo and Reuben Wu played a DJ set at the International Electroclash Showcase on October 12 and 13 at Webster hall in New York City. Ladytron has also stepped to the mixing board themselves, recently contributing a remix of the Kings of Convenience track "Little Kids" with the "Ladytron Fruits of the Forest Mix" on the recently released KoC Versus album, which also features remixes by Four Tet and Riton. It was released on Source as a limited 12" and full-length.
