A couple of months back Yuksek organised a remix contest for his single “Extraball”. It’s a fairly common thing for artists to do these days. The likes of Digitalism, Grum and DatA have all released elements of their tracks for contests, even heavyweights like Radiohead and Beck have done this in the past.
There are a couple of official remixes of this track floating around (check out the Pilooski and Breakbot mixes) but we thought we’d show off some of the better remixes from the unknown and upcoming producers.
Mr Vega creates a buzzing take on the track, with Zombie Nation style synths stabbing behind the vocals.
aUtOdiDakt’s remix is more inline with the French electro feel of the original, introducing a more analogue bass line and squelching synths.
TMX offers us probably the most rapid departure from the original turning it into a fidget house monster. Amanda Blank’s vocals work especially well over the wobbly bassline and the drops are sure to go down well on a peak time dancefloor. This Hungarian producer is definitely one to keep an eye on.
Don’t forget you can catch Yuksek at Blah Blah Blah on Saturday 23rd May. We are extremely excited about getting one of our favourite producers down to play.
