There are a lot of Chromeo remixes floating around so I was a bit caught off guard a few weeks ago when I clicked to listen to yet another remix and found one by Russ Chimes that totally wowed me. In Russ Chimes' re-envisioning of the song, he makes it into an epic-sounding retro electro number. Quite frankly, it's one of the best remixes I've heard of any song in quite a while.
Chromeo - Fancy Footwork (Russ Chimes remix)
Russ Chimes is all about that 80s electro house sound. He started his involvement with music as a guitarist while in school, but eventually he moved to London to play before he got interested in synth and producing. The song on site of his is actually a remix the Cryptonites did of his song She's Got the Heat. You can compare it to the original below.

Below is another of his songs that I like.
Russ Chimes - Mulsanne
Chimes has been working on a number of remixes lately. His most recent are the aforementioned remix of Fancy Footwork and a good one of Sam Sparro's Black & Gold.

Chimes recently returned from a tour in Australia and he's working on new original material for his first official release.
