Stats are a bit of a cult, underground London disco supergroup. They’re led by Ed Seed, who’s toured for many years in La Roux’ and more recently, Dua Lipa’s live band. We’d met having shared the stage and the booth a couple of times whilst playing shows in London with mutual disco pals Park Hotel.
When we were asked if we’d like to remix Rhythm of the Heart, it was a great honour. It’s one of those brilliant 3-minute DIY disco nuggets. All the stems are dynamite. There was just so much to work with. Our aim was to take the static and sensuous robot-funk of the original and to stretch it out into an indie floor-filler. Lauren Laverne played it bunch of times on BBC 6Music, so it did the job.
