The award-wining German house and techno duo D-Nox & Beckers are back with the second installment of ‘Distance Remixed’. 2011 was a stellar year for the duo which saw the release of their critically acclaimed second artist album ‘Distance’ on Christian Smith’s Tronic imprint. To follow this up, Tronic have assembled an impressive cast of talent to provide a two-part remix package bridging the label's release schedule as 2011 ends and 2012 begins.
Bringing together names from techno, tech house and progressive, this collection of reworks not only reflects the broad music styling of the original album but also embodies the wide genre range across which Tronic has come to operate as it seamlessly blends deep, tough, melodic and percussive flavours. Part Two of the remix collection was released this week and ups the ante a notch or two with reworks from four of the most respected producers of 2011.
Bushwacka! leads off the charge, fresh from his headline grabbing work for Plus 8 and Intec, to give ‘You Are’ a shuffling, deep bass twist. Santos delivers a tense and energetic rework of ‘Follow Me’, bristling with percussive sexiness and exotic chants. Bedrock’s Guy J works up his magic with a deep and dream like version of ‘I Will Rise’. While Uto Karem shows exactly why he has been one of the most hyped names of the year with his remix of ‘What I Have’. There is also space for a re-issue of Christian Smith’s remix of ‘My Voice’ as well as an alternative dub version of Dustin Zahn’s remix of ‘Sunner’. Futhermore, D-Nox will be releasing his brand new 'Around The World' EP on Jan 23rd on Cologne's MBF. Download the duo’s latest mixes below:
