Infernal (it would seem that their Paw og Lina era has come to an end for now) are going out on a summer tour around their native Denmark. And they’re SO excited about it, that they’ve decided to re-work one of their old hits in honour of this tour, this summer, and this time to be alive. So here we have it – ‘Love Is All (Summer 2015 Edition)’. What’s it like? They’ve plonked a bouncy 90s house piano all over it, and given it an electro house breakdown. Very well produced dancepop – from two people who have been contributing to the genre for well over a decade. Is there more to ‘Summer 2015 Edition’s to come? We certainly hope so. Last month we also had ‘Voodoo Cowboy (Summer 2015)‘. No word yet on any more though. But we’d be surprised if this was the last remix to appear before the end of August.
