The single's out on 5 May, with more mixes from Justin Robertson, Lenny Ibizarre and Steve Sharples

Lisbon Kid, AKA Rui Da Silva and Danny De Matos, released their self-titled debut album on Wall Of Sound last year. Now, the album's getting a limited-edition vinyl release for Record Store Day (22 April), while album track At The End Of The Day is being released as a single on 5 May. And today, iDJ is delighted to bring you an exclusive premiere of the Alex Phountzi Remix.

The original album version of the track is a downtempo/chill-out affair with a plainitive male vocal, gentle piano chords and slide guitar from Rui Veloso. The other remixes on the single release - from Justin Robertson, Lenny Ibizarre and Secret Garden Party's Steve Sharples - pretty much stay within the chill-out zone, but as you'll hear below, Phountzi - a founder member of West London broken beat collective Bugz In The Attic, and a regular on the decks at the legendary Co-Op - takes the track down an entirely different, much more dancefloor-oriented path, applying the vocal only lightly and letting bruk beats, a hipswaying b-line and garage-y chords take centre stage.

Lisbon Kid have also curated an art exhibition at London's Dissenters Gallery, inviting a number of artists including Justin Robertson, Spain's Ana Pallares, the UK's Sukey Parnell and New Zealand's Hilary Mance to create works inspired by tracks from the album. Entitled Call And Reponse, the exhibition runs from 20 April to 23 April, and full details can be found here.
