Velo is an unsigned band from London that created a buzz after their remix of Ellie Goulding's 'Starry Eyed' topped Hype Machine's most searched a few weeks back. It's probably my favorite remix of that track even though there are other strong contenders such as the Penguin Prison remix (as posted by Ray) and Russ Chimes remix to name a few. Velo's sound has an 80's dance feeling melded with that Modular Records sound branded by bands like Van She, Bag Raider's, etc. Their myspace is made up of really strong demos and I'm excited to see who snaps these guys up and where they're going. If you're interested in keeping up with these guys, follow them on twitter. Check out the remix and the original track 'Trading Alibis' below.
