Quite arightn honor for Oxford-based balearic pop singer Hugo Manuel and his alter ego CHAD VALLEY. His track Up And Down got a remix treatment from legendary producer Vince Clarke – the founding member of DEPECHE MODE and ERASURE gives the tune a even tougher four-to-the-floor appeal with heavy beats and sythies. The original can be found on Manuel’s debut album Young Hunger which was released last year. And we’re pretty sure that CHAD VALLEY‘s enjoying the rework by Clarke as he his obviously a big fan of remixes himself as he told NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION in an interview. Listen to the tune right here.
