Beaumont takes on Kavinsky

The reMix competition has finished, the winners announced. I, personally, must have listened to about 130 of the hundreds of entries. Some of them were amazing. Some of them were whack. Did I ever want to hear  Kavinsky’s ‘Nightcall’ again in my life? Not right now…

But if there’s one guy who can twist my arm it’s Beaumont, had he submitted his reMix to the contest it would have surely been a contender. Probably one of the best (if not the best) ElectroPop/Nu-Disco version of the song that uses both Kavinsky’s and Lovefoxxx of CSS’s vocals to sweet effect over a mixture of retro synths and 8-bit melodies.

Kolt13’s Kavinsky reMix

Awesome Nu-Disco producer Kolt13 had dropped his entry for Kavinsky’s  ‘Nightcall’ reMix competition over on his SoundCloud.

There’s now over 200 reMixes of this track floating around the internet, after one of the largest reMix competitions I have ever seen, but this has to be one of the best. There some amazing reMixes entered into the competition (I spent a whole day on SoundCloud going through them!) but this one really works for me. Cutting up and disjointing the original in an Electro stylee, but not so much to take away from the song itself. It’s a pretty crazy banger with sweet sounding retro synths battling with distorted 8-bit sounds for your attention.

As soon as the solo kicked in I was sold!

Kavinsky + Lovefoxxx + MMMatthias = Still OMG!!!

We’ve already raved about how straight up awesome Kavinsky’s ‘Nightcall’ is, unfortunately there was a little confusion and the track we posted was unmastered so it had to be removed, understandably, leaving you tune free.

So our good friend MMMatthias has stepped up to the plate to save the day and give you something to wrap your ears around until the release of the ‘Nightcall’ EP later this month.

Man, what a reMix he has given us! Still featuring shared vocal duties with Lovefoxxx of CSS it’s a smooth ElectroPop jam with an edge. Loving the builds and drops in his futuristic Pop take on the track.

Kavinsky + Lovefoxxx + Breakbot = OMG!!!

Kavinsky02

I really don’t know how much I can say here, the original of Kavinsky’s ‘Nightcall’ featuring shared vocal duties with Lovefoxxx of CSS is pretty incredible, elevating Kavinsky far far above being an electro-House or French House artist, it’s a proper, retro-tinged, ElectroPop track. it’s pretty dark (save for Lovefoxxx’s counterpoint vocals), it’s mid paced, and actually really emotive. There’s no ‘banging’ in sight. It’s, dare I say it, beautiful!

So, let’s throw Breakbot into the mix shall we! Although (and this is just my personal preference) I prefer the original, I absolutely cannot fault Breakbot’s Disco opus, it’s got everything, literally everything, you’d look for in a Disco track!

-Edit- I’ve removed the .mp3, apparently that wasn’t the finished master, which essentially means the final track will be even better!

The ‘Nightcall’ EP, the continuing adventures of the Dead Cruiser, is released 15th March and includes a reMix from Dustin N’Guyen, who is rumoured to be Xavier DeRosna, we shall see!
