You guys know the drill by now right? Good. Because we’re going to dive right into this Conspectus Chapter, so that you can enjoy a more than plentiful batch of goodies. Three remixes and two originals grace the digital page; however, there may or may not be a couple of extra gifts at the end as well. I guess you will just have to digest the all of chapter five to find out!
I don’t usually put my favorite one first and proclaim it my favorite, but I had to for the remix that Luke Max delivered for the “Colors” remix competition. It’s a crazy energetic Melbourne record; the amount of bounce this possesses pushes the line of being absurd. Absurdly amazing, of course. I will not be getting over this remix for a while and I think I won’t be the only person who has trouble overcoming its attractive nature. Throw it a vote, because it totally deserves to win!
Zak Waters’ “Running Around” was dope, but I’m going to have to say that the remix from Favulous is even more incredible. The original was just asking for a face-lift; Favulous came through by fusing a more nu-disco sound into the already Frenchy electro style. The mingling of real-life acoustic samples with synthetic counterparts makes for a pleasureful experience that will have you bobbing your head for an entire three minutes.
Premiered on Your EDM along with an interview, Dani Deahl comes to us next with her remix of tyDi’s “Live This Lie.” Her Chicago house roots shine brighter than the sun through the dance-frenzied composition whose driven forward by a pulsating four-to-the-floor kick pattern. Drop it live and it’s game over! I know Dani has, and although I haven’t seen it personally (I need to!), I know it got things crackin’!
Rudy Zensky presented us with “The Windwalker” six days ago and since that day it has accumulated nearly one hundred favorites. It’s a big room production, but the enchanting nature of the audio caused by subtly provocative samples and an understanding of intervals, has this one earning my unconditional respect. There is just something delightfully ominous about it that I can’t get over. Snag this one on Beatport on your way out!
“Oops” drops the bass into a glitchy collage of neuro-funk with the mastermind behind the creation being Eekoz. I hadn’t heard anything from Eekoz before, but now that I have, I must say I am a fan. His sound design is on point along with his creative ideas and technical execution. “Oops” is a must hear; whether you are a bass head or not, the single has potential to be something to your liking. It’s a gem with less than 1,000 plays, but let’s see if we can change that!
