Pete Lawrie - All That We Keep (JOCKS Remix)

**EXCLUSIVE**

Penny Lane-born and Penarth-bred Pete Lawrie blames his parents for his idiosyncratic tastes in music and for the passion in his songwriting. His mother plays the oboe in an opera, his father makes woodwind instruments, and his grandfather played on the original recording of Strawberry Fields Forever. Raised listening to the sounds of Stevie Wonder, Pink Floyd, Elton John and The Beatles, Pete recalls childhood summer family drives across the South of France on his new EP, All That We Keep.

This EP is a rich series of recordings that introduces Pete’s modern southern soul, and draws upon bittersweet blues, gospel, country, all capped by his rough-hewn vocal. All That We Keep’s careworn beauty is a fine example of how special this unassuming character is set to be. Backed by two of his own remixes under different aliases, a Jay-Z cover (Song Cry) with American songstress Lauren Prichard, and a new track written with Guillemots vocalist Fyfe Dangerfield, it’s a fascinating introduction to this intense but welcoming young Welshman.

 

After being introduced to Lawrie this morning and giving a number of his tunes a listen, it's pretty evident that the gruff guy is ready to make you swoon with his heartfelt and emotional songs.

 

Pretty psyched to dose you with the exclusive, and quite gorgeous, JOCKS' remix of the song All That We Keep. This goes on repeat immediately.

JOCKS Remixes Baby Monster and Ou Est Le Swimming Pool

Anytime we get sent a new JOCKS remix, we like to take some time and sit with it...because, one: we're selfish, and two: well, that's really all there is to it. But fear not, for we not only have one fantastic fix, but two amazing treats from the London productioneer.

Having already won us over with fixes of Dragonette, Crystal Fighters, Delphic and more...JOCKS continues to find himself front and center in a Beaston-lovefest. 


Most recently, dudeman tackled Baby Monster's She Comes Alive, which is the first offering from the upstart 7" series from our pals over at BIGSTEREO. Up next, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool got in on the action when they commissioned JOCKS to fix up their latest bit, These New Knights.


Watch OELSP's video for their original cut, then jump below for both remixes we already waxed upon.
