Just last week, RL Grime treated us with 11 fresh remixes inspired by his sophomore album, NOVA. Now, he’s back for round two with 11 more remixes from some of the best in the game including Valentino Khan, QUIX, Blanke, Vincent and more.
The NOVA remixes released last week come from already established and buzzing artists alike, and the Vol. 2 followup keeps with that same trend. Cozway, Default, Montell2099, Dabow, Alexander Lewis, Shadient & Wavedash and Heimanu have reimagined some of RL Grime’s best work yet.
Our ears are particularly drawn to Blanke’s remix, one of Your EDM’s Artists to Watch for 2019. His hard-hitting rework of “Pressure” made waves earlier this year and it was so successful that he was asked to make it official. Now that it’s polished up, Blanke’s version of “Pressure” has never sounded better.
Valentino Khan goes the extra mile with his take on “Pressure,” enlisting Anna Lunoe for some new vocals. Her voice guides the track into new territory and together they offer an evocative representation of the RL Grime production. It’s definitely another standout track on this release.
Those are our main obsessions, but we’re barely scratching the surface. Track-after-track, this remix pack is well worth the listen. The list of interpreters also runs deep with Vol. 1, which features Said the Sky, k?d, 1788-L, MYRNE, Hex Cougar, Enschway, Part Native, AWAY, TYNAN, Eptic, and ODEA.
Listen to Vol. 2 right below, and if you missed Vol. 1, play catch up here.
