Growingly popular Dutch producer and today’s honorary Axis DJ, Dannic, has dropped another remix to close out a month that saw his releases of “ Clobber” and “Strong.” His latest offering reveals another dimension to his repertoire of production tactics; he trades out the formulaic progressive line for wavy chord progression and a lengthier dub to boost anticipation around the seductive vocals. Of course, his big room flare commences upon the drop, bringing his latest tune full circle. Dannic shows us that he hasn’t quite yet pulled out all the stops, and while he’s already left a mark, there is more to come.
The Prodigy, the hard-electro innovators who produced the legendary album The Fat of the Land in 1997, celebrate its 15th anniversary with a reissue. This time the originals will be accompanied by remixes from some of 2012′s biggest names and the latest are from Zeds Dead and Noisia.
In anticipation of the rerelease, XL Records released an EP with a sneak-peek into the remixes. Noisia starts off the 2-part compilation with a remix of the long-lived “Smack My Bitch Up,” giving the track a sharper drum & bass edge. Zeds Dead rework “Breathe” another one of The Prodigy‘s biggest tunes, deconstructing the track entirely to recreate a dark vibrating electro beat. Keeping the original instrumental hook and a vocal sample, ZD remix “Breathe” into a club banger without losing its original eerie vibes.
The reissue of The Fat of the Land is due December 3 and will also include remixes from the likes of Major Lazer, Alvin Risk and Baauer.
