Clearly when Renaud Deru was in Mustang it didn’t allow him to experiment with different style and genres. Well, clearly this isn’t the case under his new guise ATTAR!.
His latest remix for new Belgium producer Polydor (not the label) is the deepest, darkest remix we’ve ever heard him do. Out are the easy-on-the-ear pop hooks, the disco keys and everything you’d associate with fun-time disco. But what has replaced them, for us, is far more compelling.
The remix is dark and brooding reinterpretation of the original, while never falling into the trap of being a bore-fest. He liberally sprinkles the understated vocals around the deep melodic tones and clever effects to create a track that would be a perfect to finish to a sunrise set.
Out April 16 via Midnight Munchies.
