Lots of great remixes to share with you, enjoy the music and support La Roux!

This first remix of the big hit 'In For The Kill' by Lifelike was part of the “KitsunĂ© Maison 7” compilation which was released June 9th on Kitsune. This mix has a great classic electro / synth / new wave sound.

This next remix of 'In For The Kill' from Jon Kong has a nice progressive vibe with a bouncy beat.

This remix of 'In For The Kill' is a high energy club track with some really fun stutter effects on the vocals.

Next up we have the WhateverWhatever remix of 'Quicksand'. This is a great remix, the blend of the beat and vocals is driving and hypnotic.

We also have a couple remixes of 'Bulletproof'. This first one is from Foamo. This track has a big bassline and nice 4x4 beat. This should be a big club hit.

Another remix of 'Bulletproof', this one from NONEWYORK. Another big electro styled remix with a phat bassline. Fans of Hostage and Crookers will really like this mix.
