IT’S LIKE THIS / IT’S LIKE THAT
Following her recent and successful stint of DJ sets at New York Fashion Week, including Let’s Play House radio, the Milk Studios Launch Party, and events for Esquire, Nylon and some of New York’s hottest clubs, DJ/singer/producer Henri releases her new ‘It’s Like This, It’s Like That’ remix EP.
As well as the original, the remix EP features an indie/disco rework by James Curd, Irregular Disco Workers‘ acid house remix and a deep house club mix by Henri herself.
The pop/nu-disco anthem has received rave reviews from Paper magazine and L.A.’s favourite radio station, KCRW. The remixes have continued in the same path, featuring in DJ sets both in the United States and Ibiza this summer, where Henri also hosted the Burn DJ Residency Competition, which is currently being aired on MTV Europe.
The documentary-style music video for the original is about a man whose life has been changed by his hula hoop. The director, Cole Rise, is best known as a photographer for theNational Geographic
, but Instagram lovers should be grateful to him for creating the filters: Amaro, Hudson, Sierra, Sutro, Mayfair, Willow and his namesake ‘Rise’, as well as the icon
for the app.
Rise, who has recently launched a new photo filtering app called Litely
, reveals, “Henri
’s video is the first to use Litely to add lovely film-inspired tones to video shot with a digital camera.”
Henri aka Henrietta Tiefenthaler was born in London, but is now based in L.A., where her versatility is beginning to attract serious attention; DJ-ing, performing with her psychedelic krautrock band Thrillionaire, and developing her own dance/pop productions. She co-wrote and sung lead vocals on ‘Hold Me’, with Hamburg producer/DJ Raik; a dreamy electronic track, released on Golden City Sounds (a label Raik co-founded with house legend Boris Dlugosch and Isi from Digitalism).
It’s an infectious neo-disco track perfect for summertime dance parties or even grooving along at home. – Paper Magazine
I really like the summery hypnotic 90s vibe of “It’s Like This…” It’s the perfect track for my sunset sets. – Tensnake
With “It’s Like This…” Henri’s crafted a pretty nu-disco jam with sonic hints of The Orb, Stardust and even Jamie Principle. –Mario Cotto (KCRW)
Very catchy tune from Henri. The bass line is infectious. I love the plucky synth melody… – Daniel T (Cosmic Kids)
I love Henri´s voice and the beautiful dancing summer vibes! Bravo, Bravo Henri! – Raik (Golden City Sounds)
Very nice pop track from Henri, groovy and catchy! – Worakls
“It’s Like This, It’s Like That” is a great track that somehow evokes bands like The Waitresses mixed with Sonic Youth in a house song. Nostalgic and current at the same time. – James Curd
