Today is a special day. It’s the day we post what we think is the best remix we’ve heard this year. It comes from Peter & The Magician, which is the new callaboration between Yuksek and The Magician – they originally came together earlier this year to produce one of our favourite EP’s ‘Twist’ – now they’re back with a fist-pumpingly amazing disco remix of Yuksek’s second single ‘Alway’s on the run’ from his new album ‘Living Life On The Edge Of Time’.
Now we’re struggling to come up with enough superlatives to describe it, but we’re going to have a good go. It starts as it should; a clever synth hook and Vandroid-esque clunking drums. Then you get the vocal, an anthemic chant from the French wiz-kid. Throughout the track it’s building to the inveitiable 3.30 break. And it’s so worth the wait. The vocals, synth-hook and electro groove all come together to make a remix that is going to be a fixture of many mixtapes and sets over the next few months.
There’s been some talk about a possible Peter & The Magician album. We think off the back of this remix this needs to happen, and happen soon. For the sake of electronic music as a whole.
Out October 24.
