Negro Impacto share new remix EP

Words: Dylan Murphy

The Dundalk duo are back with one final drop before the end of 2021.

2021 was a busy year for Negro Impacto. They released their debut single, shared their first EP and in between restrictions they managed to play their first show. Never shying away from testing ideas, they dropped halloween-themed remixes and christened reworked versions of songs in the live arena too ahead of the new year they’ve shared a full remix EP.

NEGRO IMPACTO: STRANGELOVE EDITS VOL. 1 features fresh reworkings of the four tracks from their self-titled EP and closes a chapter before moving onto new ideas in 2022.

Speaking on the new remix EP, StrangeLove says, “I think for us, it’s always fun to reimagine a song and give it a new lease on life. I’ve always been a fan of remixes of original songs since listening to the likes of Jamie XX’s Gil Scot Heron reworks when I was younger and even with what Knxwledge does with his Meek Mill series. So I’d spend my days searching up acapellas of anyone who was making music, from Dua Lipa to Anderson Paak and try to reimagine songs of theirs (which some people may have heard if they’ve seen us live)”.
“In 2022 people are going to see the world of Negro Impacto expand out a bit more in the shape of music as well as other things. We’ll definitely want to play more shows too and try gun for some festivals in the summer! “
