I've loved Rex the Dog's sound since his sorta-released remix of Depeche Mode's "Photographic." Since then, he's done staggeringly awesome mixes of The Knife's "Marble House," Goldfrapp's "Happiness," and even an inventive mashup that uses his "Photographic" 'Dubb' and welds it to Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" in a masterful and gloriously dance-y way.
So, next month in the UK, Rex is releasing his first artist album, The Rex the Dog Show. Thanks to the folks at Popjustice, here's the video for the first single. It's got a visually distinctive style and a degree of playfulness we don't normally get from dance videos. Check it out.
I Can See You, Can You See Me?
Rex the Dog - "I Can See You, Can You See Me?"
You can also check out his superb minimix from BBC Radio 1. Fun stuff for a sweltering summer afternoon.
