Mixmash boss Laidback Luke’s massive hit ‘The Chase’ has received the remix treatment from a host of promising upcomers, with the package due for release on the 8th February. It includes the original alongside five very different takes on the record, from HITS ‘O’ GOOD, Cesqeaux & Mike Cervello, CMC$ & Pyrodox, Herve Pagez & KANDY, and Evangelos.
‘The Chase’ is the second single from Laidback Luke’s latest album, ‘Focus’, which was released on November 6th on Mixmash, his first LP since 2002’s ‘Electronic Satisfaction’.
HITS ‘O’ GOOD’s remix brings the subtle piano chords of the original to the forefront alongside Aruna’s strong vocals in the intro. It’s followed by a drop in the form of an original rave-influenced keyboard melody.
The dramatic drums & echoing vocals set against the piano melody of Cesqeaux & Mike Cervello’s remix give way to a face past build-up and trap-style drop, whereas Herve Pagaz & KANDY’s take on the record features attention-grabbing drums from the start.
Elsewhere, CMC$ & Pyrodox put a laidback yet bass-heavy dubstep-influenced spin on the track, whilst Evangelos’s ‘Subshock’ remix features classic house hi-hats and synth melodies before launching into a stomping bass drop.
From the 25th January until the release of the remix compilation on the 8th February, two of the new edits – Herve Pagaz & KANDY and CMC$ & Pyrodox – will be available to download for free via the Mixmash Soundcloud page as a thank you to the fans and a taste of what’s to come in 2016!
These new remixes are a great way to show off the varied styles of the talents Laidback Luke’s Mixmash is helping to nurture.
