Barron Von Luxxury’s monthly edit series has been gathering pace ever since we first spoke about it six months ago.
His latest effort, number 8 in the series, has been by far his most successful; a stunning rework of The Eagles’ seminal 1977 classic ‘Hotel California‘.
Rather than a simple edit, Baron had the luxury (see what we did there) of using the original’s stems – so was able to rework the vocal with the help of a trusty vocoder.
The edit has also found its way into Greg Wilson’s CD wallet who then used it to open a mammoth 8 hour set at Berlin’s Berghain.
Be sure to grab Von Luxxury’s new ‘slow edit’ mixtape too.
