Well, we’d have to say that this is pretty fantastic! It seems that the Klaxons put out a little hint (and by little hint, we mean clear video) in early June about a collaboration with UK electronic music duo, The Chemical Brothers. What’s better is that their production is “so far beyond the 99% of music today,” as one reader said. I mean, how many of today’s electronic music producers use outboard gear to produce, record, and mix their sounds? No clear number, but that fact is surely food for thought.

Klaxons are an English new rave indie rock band, based in London. Following the release of numerous 7-inch singles on different independent record labels, as well as the success of previous singles “Magick” and “Golden Skans”, the band released their debut album, Myths of the Near Future on 29 January 2007. The album won the 2007 Nationwide Mercury Prize. After playing festivals and headlining tours worldwide (including the NME Indie Rave Tour) during late 2006–2007, the band started working on their follow-up album in July 2007. Klaxons’ second album, Surfing the Void, was released on 23 August 2010. On 3 February 2014, Zane Lowe premiered Klaxons’ first single “There Is No Other Time” from their forthcoming album, Love Frequency. The band’s third album is due for release on 4 June 2014.
The Chemical Brothers are a British electronic music duo composed of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons originating in Manchester in 1989. Along with The Prodigy, Fatboy Slim, The Crystal Method, and fellow acts, they were pioneers at bringing the big beat genre to the forefront of pop culture. In the UK, they have had five number one albums and 13 top 20 singles, including two number ones. The duo have won a number of awards throughout their career, including four Grammy Awards—twice for Best Electronic/Dance Album, and in 2000 won the Brit Award for Best British Dance Act.
