Back in May Australian duo Midnight Pool Party released their highly anticipated second ep MOTIONS which set dancefloors ablaze all around the world with its infectious disco/dance/funk sounds, and this week the boys are coming back to us with even more heat with the release of MOTIONS REMIXED.
Midnight Pool Party have teamed up with Dugong Jr (AUS), Anoraak (France), LEFTI (NYC), Charlie Crown (Miami) and Bohkeh (LA), having each them rework one track off the MOTIONS EP each, giving their chosen track a little touch of their own signature flavour and taking MOTIONS into a whole new world of electronic sounds.
“We were deconstructing the MOTIONS tracks while working on our live set recently and we started hearing them in a different light. We began thinking of ways that we could re-invent them, and we thought it would be interesting, and really cool, to have other producers put their spin on our tracks – we certainly weren’t disappointed
We’re so excited about these remixes, they are all unique and showcase each of the remixers talents and its very interesting to hear something we constructed from the ground up in a different landscape.” – Midnight Pool Party
From the remixers –
Dugong Jr; “The original was already such a jam so it was a fun challenge to try and reinvent this song and put my own spin on it. This remix for me was definitely about experimenting with unique sounds and creating interesting combinations. It kind of ended up like a M*A*S*H theme song remix with a late night house groove lol.”
Anoraak; “The original version of Slide is a so great already, so i had to come up with a radically different vibe. At first listen i felt the potential for a real disco twist and this is where i went of this one, full-on bass guitar based disco jam, i’m super stoked about the final result”
LEFTI; “I’m really excited to be part of this remix package. I saw MPP post ‘Secret’ on instagram and immediately had an idea to remix it. I wanted to make this remix by resampling all of the original instrumentation (normally I just use the acapella), so I reached out and the rest is history!”
Charlie Crown; “I fell in love with the vocals the first time I heard the track and knew that they needed to be the focal point of the remix. In order to cater to them, I tried to approach the production by adding in more ambient elements and simultaneously enhancing the energetic arrangement by incorporating my own sound”
Bohkeh; “The jivey-ness of Morilla’s vocals def inspired the feel and groove to this remix. The process was pretty much organic and I had lots of fun! :)”
