Review

Enchufada farm out Savage Skulls’ Swedish Kuduro for proper 2012 rave remixes. Peo De Pitte cuts into ‘No.1 Spot’ with catalytic elements of Dubstep, Dutch Bubblin’ and sheer Swedish studio science; Chaos In The CBD drop a fibrillating favela funk look; Mixhell serves the NRG; and Botnek cuts loose on a frisky, hard Electro sound. - Boomkat Review

 

Press Release

After releasing Savage Skulls’ wild ‘No.1 Spot EP’ back in February and watching the riots it caused on bass-hungry crowds all over the world, we knew we had to revisit these banging tunes by means of an extreme remix EP. So we picked up the Swedish duo’s amazing tracks ‘No.1 Spot’ and ‘Lorimer’ and contacted four impressive production teams to work their magic on these dancefloor bombs, and the results will be released on July 23rd.

Stockholm-born and London-based Peo de Pitte‘s remix for ‘No.1 Spot’ advocates big-room beats and crazy synths from out of space, nicely complementing the original with a funkier edge and a lot of breaks. We’re pretty sure we’ll be hearing much more from this exciting upcoming producer, as he steadily delivers quality productions at every turn.

New Zealand brothers Chaos In The CBD churn out a vibrant and sophisticated version of the title track, filled with skittering percussion, big bass and tropical flavor, turning away from the face-melting intensity of the original to deliver a lighthearted and danceable number. Watch out for this young duo as they’re making very big moves on the bass-friendly side of the underground music scene.

For the first reworking of ‘Lorimer’ we have the Brazilian dance music institution Mixhell, proving their legendary status once again by turning the original into an epic and growing techno-influenced anthem, filled with warm bass, all kinds of bleeps and lazers, and otherwordly synths. If anyone could see the beautiful side of such a nasty banger, it could only be them.

To close off the EP we have the Canadian power duo Botnek, who already had delivered a booty-shaking remix of Buraka‘s ‘(We Stay) Up All Night’ and established themselves as one of our go-to producers for quality peak-time dancefloor wreckers. Staying true to form, the guys from up north turn the original into more of a kuduro-influenced electro banger, providing that much needed fuel for late-night hands-in-the-air madness.
