Ladyhawke is Pip Browne, a 26 years old New Zealander.
After spending time in Sydney in various bands, she has upped sticks even further still, and now resides in London.
As a music-obsessed child with very musical parents (step-father a drummer, mother a singer), she soaked up everything from the 70’s and 80’s. From Stevie Nicks and Joan Jett to Nirvana and Hole with Van Halen and Deep Purple in between. The result is a refreshing blend of rock, dance and classic song writing. As well as writing Back of the Van, Pip also plays the drums, guitar and synth on the track.
For this mix package the original producer of the track gets involved once again for the Van She Tech ‘Turbo Fire Engine’ mix… a nice half-time intro builds to a thumping thrilling ride thru roaring bass and pumped up synth lines! Fred Falke is on a roll at the moment with his excellent EP on Work It Baby and a recent run of amazing remixes… this one is no exception as he takes Ladyhawke to a glam disco dancefloor and lets the song do the rest… very classy! Lastly, London based faves of DFA Mock & Toof deliver an elastic fun-fest that rides on the original bassline and then runs amok in the percussive...
