In the past few months,i was working on a podcast (which is about to be released) and the concept behind it, was for me to try and bring well known tracks ("commercial" if you like) to my style of music. In the process of the podcast making, this happened and since it's been a couple of years that i haven't share an edit/remix with you, i thought i should share this!
Alex Dimou makes his second appearance following his remix of Tiger Stripe’s ‘Runaways’ on Get Physical with a fantastically classic sounding EP ‘Sweet Berries’. The Greek-born producer and DJ has been making crowds move in the south scene for quite a while, now his works and influence are starting to spread north.
The title track is a smooth house number with a disco vibe. The heavy bass line drives the track home while it pulls you into the groove. The percussion, while simple, is masterfully executed here – adding to the long list of reason why you’ll be hearing this one often.
“The Pickle” feeds on the same vibe as “Sweet Berries” minus the disco-house but packs a deep and contagious bass line just as well. Just as with the title track, it’s hard to escape the tracks pull to the dance floor with its energetic-yet-mellow vibe.
Simon Baker takes ‘Sweet Berries’ and adds an elegant touch to it before throwing down a kick and a very raw-feeling percussion. He takes the bass line in a new direction, opting for a rolling, thunderous feel rather than heavy stabs.
Fur Coat takes thing even deeper with his remix, adding a distorted synth to accent the eerie tones he creates. A dark piece, which takes the original in a totally new direction.
Lastly, we’ve got a remix from new-comer Janvanvau, who takes the original and piles on even more energy, keeping the vibe while adding a tech-house touch.
