Matt Berry, who played Douglas Reynholm in The IT Crowd, has remixed Sheffield act Screaming Maldini’s forthcoming anthem Summer, Somewhere.
“I listened to the single and loved the chorus,” Berry said. “The atmosphere reminded me of Sweet Lullaby by Deep Forrest. I just wanted to add a bit of sadness to that overall party.
“I’ve actually been involved in music longer than I have acting,” he said. “So far I have fathomed that both art forms contain a lot of similar kinds of middle player people making decisions and generally hanging around without ever making it clear to anyone what it is they actually do – or are good at.”
Prog/pop sextet Screaming Maldini have risen to prominence after wowing the NME, the Guardian and BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson. Summer, Somewhere is released next week, on Alcopop! Records (UK) and HipHipHip Records (France)
