Break Through Artists

pitchblackPixel Dust, from Pitch Black’s critically acclaimed album Filtered Senses, has been given four radical over-hauls. The original track starts out in the dubby tech style that Pitch Black excel at, descends briefly into an 80's synth nightmare before becoming a noughties rave track with a serious kick. For the first remix Tot Dokkstätter break things right down to a series of super stereo and spacial abstract sounds, before their lush bass envelops you and their pristine cut up electro groove dances over the arrangement. As washes of noise lull you into a false sense of relaxation, an electric guitar/synth hybrid arpeggio tears its way through the mix.

Up at 125 BPM, Bennun and Healey’s Turbo Tuareg mix dispenses deep hypnotic techno beats, massive cavernous and club-filling sounds as an Arabian vocal weaves its way through the melee. The whole club-floor is kept in a minimal groove holding space until the groove finally slams in over the top of the arrangement at over 3 minutes in. For the 4/4 deep tech / tech house / left field house fraternity, it’s a gem and a half. mcthfg present a sound bed of unsettling electronica and skanking synth hits. Before the listener is dropped into their tight...

vittoriafleetVittoria Fleet are electronic artists defined by relationships. Together exploring the spaces between time and place / analogue and digital / masculinity and femininity / sound and music... in their time together, this contrasting list has only grown. The band first formed in 2009 - the combined efforts of Allan Shotter and Giada Zerbo; producing the Kissing Cousins EP as a swan song to their time spent together in Hackney Wick, London. Reflecting the organic and controlled existences that surrounded them throughout the city. This EP showcased a huge sonic arsenal, from pounding bass and drums reminiscent of the raves of East London to the most delicate vocals, atmospherics and field recordings. All used to expand the depth and dimensions of each track.

andycaldwell cityofstarsLa La Land is the musical for people that don’t like musicals, filled with bittersweet romance, nostalgic L.A. moments and incredible music. “City of Stars” one of the film's shining moments, is a song that stays with you long after you leave the theater.

As you hum the melody, its hopeful lyrics call out to all that are lost in the city of angles. Oscar-winning composer Justin Hurwitz has almost single-handedly reignited the world’s love of musicals with his infectious melodies and sentimental nods, and that called for a remix!

After seeing the film Andy Caldwell and Chic Hooligan decided that this musical gem needed a rework that might help bring the song to the world electronic music fans. Caldwell tapped the talents of his old band mate (Soulstice) Gina Rene for the vocal and out came a jazzy mid tempo rendition perfect for chill out sets and early evening dance floor vibes.
