Acclaimed producer Lane 8, who has just released his new album Rise via Anjunadeep, has remixed track “In The Wake” by New York indie-rock five-piece, Walking Shapes. A poolside disco groover, Lane 8 graces his signature sparkle on the driving original creating a slow-building summer jam that is well worth the final payoff. Listen to the remix below and click here to buy on iTunes.
The original “In The Wake” is taken from the Walking Shapes’s debut album Taka Come On, out now via No Shame | Mishu Music. The Lane 8 remix comes ahead of a further three excellent remixes of Walking Shapes track “Feel Good”, reworked by Jonas LR, FRZN and Z A N D A, which will be released on July 31.
Walking Shapes released the deluxe edition of their debut album Taka Come On earlier this year, recorded with producer Gus Oberg (The Strokes, Ryan Adams, Willie Nelson). Walking Shapes is the living and breathing result of a creative environment centered in a house on Kingsland Avenue in Brooklyn owned by visual artist Joseph Grazi. “People show up and hang out until five in the morning and that energy has swirled into our scene and core group of friends,” says violinist Jesse Kotansky. The band carries forward that kind of collective energy, injecting the spirit of the city’s noises and the souls of its people into their songs, with the resulting frenetic charge and emotional waves feeding back the sound of the city that never sleeps. Walking Shapes are comprised of Nathaniel Hoho (vocals, guitar), Jesse Kotansky (guitar, violin, vocals), Jake Generalli (keys, vocals), Dan Krysa (bass, vocals) and Christopher Heinz (drums).
