Tommie Sunshine comes out swinging with his new remix. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are now vintage quality (as old as that makes us feel), with a potent punch added, after being drenched in some summer anthem. This collab between Modern Machines, CID & the man himself cannot be ignored. The explosion 75 seconds into the track holds its own amongst the best progressive & banger drops out there and there’s no stupid big room repetition. The pull back is exactly what it needs to be and I expect it to have been played a dozen times at Electric Zoo. The DJ support list is massive, as it should be. Rage, rage against the dying light my friends. ALSO a bonus mix at EDM.com!
Since I yammered about Kove a little while ago, I’m delighted to say that the track has been picked up, and EDM.com brings us a reworking of the tune that shimmers with quality. The deep, techy, but still perky envisioning of the original D&B is music to my ears. There’s the necessary competent build with some slicing & dicing of the vocals in just the way your rooftop party deep house should sound. This has some potential to get pushed into some sets, especially with the break into super old school styles halfway in. The sound is very now. While I feel like a catastrophic douche for writing that, I think it’s true in a lot of ways. The retro feel given some modern bounce, in addition to the proper usage of vocals pushing into a deeper, less anthem-y sound. Listen and you tell me if I’m right? (via EDM.com)
