Premiere: Alan Prosser – I’m Back (Kiz Pattison Remix)

Alan Prosser - I'm Back

With a discography brimming with over 100 releases on top labels including Ministry of Sound, Global Underground and Underwater Records, powerhouse progressive house DJ/producer Alan Prosser is about to make his debut on Pangea Recordings.

Ahead of the release of Prosser’s I’m Back EP out October 24, we’re thrilled to world premiere Kiz Pattison’s sprawling remix of the title track.

On his iteration, the Birmingham maestro crafts an energetic narrative, reconstructing the song with careful tempo-building while orchestrating a cadre of swirling pads and a relentlessly booming kick drum. It culminates in a swirling and thoroughly satisfying synth-soaked climax.

Premiere: Shpongle – No Turn Un-Stoned (Cosmic Trigger Remix)

Cosmic Trigger - Shpongle Remixed Twisted

Twisted Records UK is getting ready to present an interesting, er, twist on the remix album concept.

Instead of compiling an album’s worth of re-rubs crafted by a variety of producers for Shpongle Remixed, label boss and Shpongle founder Simon Posford enlisted producer Jamie Grashion (a.k.a. Cosmic Trigger) to re-interpret an entire album’s worth of the group’s tracks on his own.

A member of the Twisted Records UK family, Jamie, who assists Simon in the studio, was already intimate with the music, making him the ideal person to take on remix duties.

We’re thrilled to world premiere “No Turn Un-Stoned (Cosmic Trigger Remix)” from the upcoming release.

Jamie’s remix is an intoxicating interpretation that takes the song into new spiritual territory by way of punchy basslines, a sprinkling of atmospheric glitch-hop vibes and assorted eargasmic magic dust.

“I’m really happy with how this one turned out,” Jamie tells us of the remix.

He adds, “It’s quite different to the original, but as with the others on this album I was taking the original stems as a springboard to delve into new tangential sonic environments. I was experimenting with foley quite a bit on this track inspired by listening to a lot of KOAN Sound, and happily, I managed to fit a duduk solo in there, one of my favorite folk instruments.”
