Guy Gerber’s rework of Desire’s “Don’t Call” is out now, available at https://found.ee/RH7T
Offered on June 4th, 2020 as a free download on SoundCloud, the luscious rework aims to motivate and inspire.
Speaking about the remix, Macious explains,
“Kidnap is one of my biggest inspirations when it comes to electronic music. Following him from the early stages of making music I always looked up to his sound and the euphoric feelings he can evoke in his productions. The remix came about when Kidnap released some stems to his songs via his Instagram stories and this was my moment where I reached out and got the chance to remix his song “Start Again”, which to me is not only my favourite song of his, but this track itself has such a big personal meaning.
“The lyrics directly spoke to me as I was quite exhausted from recent events and big changes that had occurred in my life. “Cause it feels like, we both need a friend” – even though I felt disconnected at this moment, the song reminds me that I’m restarting myself again, and I’m very grateful for that.
I hope listeners will feel motivating energy whilst listening to my interpretation of the original.”
Originating from the hallowed turf of Berlin, and now based in Manchester, the young producer has an academic diploma in Electronic Music that has led him on a path of stripped back and playful melodic house, disco and techno. His most recent releases, the bright remix for Golden Bantic’s ‘Simmer Down’ landed number one on both the Hype Machine main & remix charts.
His clever and unique live performances using a variety of synths display not only Mark’s catalogue of eclectic and well thought out tracks but also his deep understanding of creating moving, smiling, educated dance floors.
Belgian producer Jerro makes his Anjunadeep debut on a gorgeous new single called “Tunnel Vision”. Featuring crisp, hypnotic production topped by dreamy vocals from Los Angeles artist Kauf, the track officially arrives with an accompanying music video to match. “Tunnel Vision” also comes equipped with an official remix from critically-acclaimed producer Durante who offers up a melodic twist on the original.
Jerro explains, “It’s actually pretty funny how this track came about…I had a long-night out at the club, and came home feeling extra ‘inspired.’ So, I started messing around on FL Studio. Woke up the next morning, and saw that I started a track the night before at 5:47am? So, I had a listen, and I actually quite liked it haha…and that’s how ‘Tunnel Vision’ was born.”
“Now that it is finished up, I’m really excited to showcase a different style of music, as this track isn’t like any of my previous releases. It is also my first time working with an original vocal, which Kauf really nailed. It ended up being my most ambitious track to date.”
Jerro’s fusion of melodic house and downtempo sounds originally broke through with his debut The Fool EP via Lane 8’s This Never Happened label. After only six months, The Fool saw strong support from global tastemakers as “Lake Nivu” became the most played song on SiriusXM Chill throughout September 2019, also laying the groundwork for his sophomore Pantheon EP via This Never Happened. Now in the third chapter of his career backed by Anjunadeep, he carries serious momentum into “Tunnel Vision” and beyond.
As for Durante, he broke out via OWSLA’s Nest subsidiary in 2013 and quickly received acclaimed from the likes of VICE and Billboard Dance, going on to establish himself as a force within the house music scene. Recently releasing original tunes via Amtrac’s OPENERS and Lubelski’s Percomaniacs, his “Tunnel Vision” remix is yet another exciting addition to an ever-prolific catalogue.
“’Never’ was mainly inspired by so-called ‘Intelligent Dance Music’ from the mid-’90s, and it went on to become one of my favourite tracks on this album. Orbital were such a formative and pioneering force in this scene and have been a huge influence on my sound. To have them remix one of my tracks is a massive honour for me.
Elliot Moss today announced his new EP A Change In Diet (The Remixes) will be released on March 20th, 2020, via Grand Jury. The EP includes reworkings of three songs from his recent album, A Change In Diet, that feature Colombian singer-songwriter Elsa y Elmar (on “Bodyintoshapes”), Cuban-American R&B singer Brika (on “Rabbit Roads”), and Mexican trapper Go Golden Junk (on “Silver + Gold”). The remix of “Bodyintoshapes,” featuring Elsa y Elmar’s hypnotic voice, can now be heard above.
“The idea for this EP came about after hearing what some of my closer musician friends and contributors did to my music in a live setting. After touring the world I wanted to connect more deeply with some of the different countries that touched me. The addition of these artists to these songs has helped to make them feel more complete,” explains Moss. “The mark of a talented melody writer to me is someone who can fit in between existing shapes and sequences—not lay over the top all the time. Elsa’s contribution to ‘Bodyintoshapes’ was so effortless and really just consisted of me turning up the fader and leaving it alone.”
Elsa y Elmar namesake Elsa Carvajal adds,”Whenever I listen to a track I’m invited to collaborate on, either one of the following scenarios happen: A) Once I press play I instantly get an endless flow of ideas for lyrics and melodies. Or B) Not much happens… and then ideas need to be worked for a long time. What happened with ‘Bodyintoshapes’ was scenario A), which was awesome. I think Elliott is a very skilled and talented artist, and even though I am usually very skeptical about using two different languages in one track, I think this song feels very natural. It’s a cool, euphonic track, and I am very grateful I was able to be a part of it.”
The remix EP follows A Change In Diet, released January 17th via Grand Jury to recognition from outlets including Pitchfork (“On his poignant second album, the multitalented singer-songwriter gives voice to the self-doubts that manifest in the wee hours of the morning.”) and Exclaim! (“Elliot Moss invites us into the depths of his mental and emotional landscape with bold vulnerability.”), among others. Pre-release singles “Barricade,” “July 4,” “Silver + Gold,” and “Bodyintoshapes” also caught the attention of outlets including American Songwriter (“ambient, trance-synth pop”), FLOOD, Atwood Magazine (“One would be hard-pressed to find an artist as intriguingly inimitable as New York-based musician Elliot Moss”), and Blah Blah Blah Science, among others.
Moss is currently in the midst of his North American headlining tour and performs next tonight in Minneapolis, MN. See below for a full itinerary.
