On the heels of last month’s Zeds Dead and Noisia remixes of The Prodigy, OWSLA-adept Alvin Risk has reworked “Firestarter,” the iconic track off of The Prodigy’s fabled third album The Fat of the Land. Preserving the gothic overtone of the legendary single, Alvin Risk ramps up the tempo to 170bpm for a drumstep/drum ‘n’ bass production just as menacing as the original. The Prodigy’s influence on Alvin Risk is quite clear, and thus it only makes sense that he pays tribute to the famed group by remixing one of their biggest singles. Risk’s remix is part of the official reissue of The Fat of the Land, released on XL Recordings.

19-year-old Swede, Kasbo, has established himself on the prodcution circuit with stunning approaches to Louis Futon, Icona Pop and his breakout original “Kaleidoscope.” Turning back to remix cuties, Kasbo finds himself flipping Vance Joy’s hit “Riptide” on its head, installing praisewrothy future bass hallmarks into a downtempo shell of swirling white noise. A dash of soul and sultry crooning courtesy of Vance Joy’s soaring vocal acumen are met with a brand new melody and drum section courtesy of Kasbo’s impeccable ear. A far cry from the indie original, the R&B influences and percussive leads turn “Riptide” into a post-game playlist must have.
Electronic music fans in upstate New York are about to lose another music festival in 2015. Michael Lang, a representative of Winston Farms, confirmed to Saugerties Times, “The Hudson Project is on hold for the moment. It’s not coming back this year.” The inaugural electronic music festival, held last July, took pride in sharing the same location as Woodstock ’94. The MCP Presents-produced event was intended to act as Camp Bisco’s successor after 15 years of business. While official numbers were not released, it is suspected that The Hudson Project was several thousand short of its 20,000 to 25,000 expected attendees. Many might also recall the cancellation of the festival’s third day due to torrential rainstorms and flooding, leaving thousands of furious fans trapped on the site. It could be that one stroke of bad luck put what would have been an annual affair to rest before it even had a chance to flourish. Lang explains that Winston Farms is in the works of scheduling other events for the summer season: “We’re talking to some other entities about this summer and should have something definitive in a couple of weeks.”
