The Killers – Mr Brightside (Thin White Duke Remix)

Stuart Price (aka Jacques lu Cont, aka The Thin White Duke, aka Les Rythmes Digitales, aka Paper Faces, aka Man With Guitar) is one of my favourite producers. Everything he does turns to gold. He’s not afraid to take on full-blown nasty pop songs and remix them into something better. He’s taken on remixes of pop artists like Britney Spears, Madonna and Gwen Stefani. We’ll be putting up more posts about this wizard of remixing from time to time.


Price has provided a quality remix of the Killer’s anthem “Mr Brightside”. His remix is doing the rounds on the internet but if you want to get a high quality copy of it we recommend you go ahead and buy it. It’s available on the Killer’s new album Sawdust. You can preview his remix on youtube here.

It’s not a tune for every dance floor, it feels a bit on the slow side mainly because the cord progression doesn’t happen as quickly as in the original. Personally I like what he’s done with the song and I reckon that crowds who know their music will definitely go for this.

  1. And his work on latest Seal single “Amazing” is simply brilliant!!! And don’t forget his remix of biggest hit of 2007 – “D.A.N.C.E.” from Justice.
