Video: Chromatics – Shadow (Maceo Plex Remix)
Acclaimed U.S live electronic band Chromatics announce remix package for their classic single, Shadow. Featuring remixes from Maceo Plex, Dean Hurley, Melawati, Acorne and two new edits of the original version, Chromatics – Shadow (Remixes) is out now via Italians Do It Better.
A collection of remixes which takes the much-loved original in a new direction from the dancefloor to cinematic-sounding reworks, Shadow was originally released in 2015 and swiftly became one of the standout entries in Chromatics’ impressive discography. Picking up early and key industry support from the likes of Pitchfork, Shadow rose to fame in late 2016 when Chromatics performed the track in David Lynch’s cult tv series, Twin Peaks (Season 3). The band took to the stage at fictional venue, The Roadhouse and in turn catapulted the track to mainstream success.
Leading the remixes, Maceo Plex transforms Shadow into a euphoric dance floor production. One of the many avenues of his vast musical skill set, Maceo Plex is the figurehead behind the seminal underground label, Ellum Audio, and has released four studio albums, mix compilations for London’s fabric and !K7’s DJ-Kicks series, along with productions under his Mariel Ito and Maetrik aliases. Also curating several BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix’s and gracing the cover of many a magazine from Mixmag to DJ Mag, Maceo Plex has provided official remixes for artists including Coldcut, Röyksopp, GusGus, DJ T, Maribou State, Perry Farrell, Faithless, New Order and more.
With the release of today’s new remixes, Chromatics pay tribute and honour the death of Twin Peaks’ fictional character, Laura Palmer who was originally portrayed by Sherly Lee. Laura Palmer was found murdered at the age of seventeen, on the morning of February 24, 1989. An event that shook the small town of Twin Peaks to its core and prompted an investigation by protagonist and FBI agent, Dale Cooper.
The release of Shadow (Remixes) marks Chromatics’ entrance in 2021 with the full EP now available to purchase here.
