Descend Into Bliss With Innellea’s Remix Of ‘Kiss Me Hard’

Danish trio WhoMadeWho and Canadian duo Blue Hawaii have enlisted Munich-based live act, DJ, and producer Innellea to remix their latest collaborative single, “Kiss Me Hard.” The trio continues to raise the bar on their creative output as they approach the release of their upcoming album, Kiss & Forget, expanding the impressive range of their LP remixers. The release also arrives on the heels of the lineup announcement for the second edition of WhoMadeWho’s label festival, The Moment, which will return to their hometown of Copenhagen, Denmark on August 7, 8, and 9, 2024

Kiss Me Hard (Innellea Remix)

The original record offers a dreamy, nostalgia-laden tune that fuses WhoMadeWho’s bold electronic textures with Blue Hawaii’s synth-infused indie dance flair. In his remix, Innellea flips the hazy, wistful tone of the original into a moody, dark, and thumping basement weapon. His thunderous production heightens the senses, juxtaposing Blue Hawaii’s youthful vocal with an acid-drenched instrumental.

Since the original had more of a summery vibe, I thought it would be exciting to give the song a twist and produce a darker version. It made me think of the Dark Prince, who has shaped my musical career since the beginning.” 



WhoMadeWho continues to showcase their impeccable ears as selectors, as they invite Innellea to join the stellar lineup of remixers, including Mind Against & Dyzen, CAMELPHAT, and Marten Lou, for the Kiss & Forget LP, slated for release on September 13th. Their tastemaking talents will be put on full display later this summer in the second edition of their festival, WhoMadeWho Presents: The Moment, which will boast performances from Amémé, Blond:ish, Lovefoxy, LP Giobbi, Marcel Dettman, Mind Against, Patrick Mason, Tripolism, and of course, a hybrid set from the Danish trio themselves. WhoMadeWho Presents: The Moment will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark from August 7-9, 2024.
