Dubdogz Bring Us New Hot Collaboration With Germany Duo Ten Tonne Skeleton On New Single ‘Psycho Killer‘
The new collaboration ‘Psycho Killer‘ between Dubdogz and Ten Tonne Skeleton builds on the original’s lively vocal lines while intertwining these with jumpy rhythms and cool Brazilian bass vibes. It’s a deep, dark adventure coming your way here, out now on Spinnin’ Records.
This new Brazilian-German team up got its hands on one of the most well-known records from the 80’s, the Talking Heads song ‘Psycho Killer’. Using the vocal lines from the original, the guys from Ten Tonne Skeleton had these recorded again by US-based singer-songwriter H. Kenneth, who they had met during a writing session in Nashville.
Dubdogz shared about the new single, “We heard the original version from a young age at home, our parents have the album ‘Talking Heads: 77’ – the band’s first album – on which Psycho Killer was released. Having the opportunity to reinterpret this classic with the guys from Ten Tonne Skeleton and the sensational vocals from H. Kenneth, is a very important achievement and milestone in our career.”
Dubdogz scored huge hits on their own account, as well as with covers and remixes for Bob Sinclar, Stromae, and the huge international hit they released in early 2020, the Infinity Ink cover ’Infinity’. It’s turned them into the global players they are today, thanks to their unique sound, drenched in Brazilian bass and contemporary electronic music.
Ten Tonne Skeleton explains, “We had to write a second verse cause there’s none in the original. That verse ended up being the only verse in the final version. We are huge Radiohead fans. While reading their biography, we learned that their bandname was a song by a band called Talking Heads, that’s how we discovered their music and that’s what made us start working on ‘Psycho Killer’.“
The new raw version of the track was sent to the mighty Dubdogz, who finalized the production in their own outstanding way. The guys added their trademark grooves, drops and productional wizardry, nicely combining a supple rhythm with dark undertones. It turned out the perfect counterweight for the timeless vocal lines, now reaching new heights again in a brand new guise.
