My Favorite Robot – Barricade (DJ Tennis Remix)
My Favorite Robot’s next release is a very special remix by DJ Tennis. It initially comes as a 10” vinyl and will then be available digitally in autumn.
MFR’s ‘Barricade’ was first released on DJ Tennis’s Life And Death label back in 2012. It was a huge house track that resonates to this day, so it makes sense the taste- making Italian steps up to remix it. He is someone with a cultured take on brooding house and techno, as evidenced by the music he A&Rs for his label as well as things like his own standout DJ-kicks mix from last year.
His new remix is a masterfully melancholic one that starts with a delicate ambient synth line hanging in mid air. Breathy vocals eventually arrive to send shivers down the spine and finally, deep, rolling, mid tempo kicks bring a groove that carries you away into a reverie. It’s made all the more mournful and poignant thanks to some broad synth chords and swirling pads later on and is sure to provide a real centre point of any seriously emotional set.
This is a stunning and absorbing single and another high point for My Favorite Robot Records.
