The Sanfernando Sound’s latest reMix is his entry into R3set’s ‘Runaway’ reMix competition, and it set’s the bar pretty damn high.
TSS bases his mix around an driving Italo, almost New Beat, bassline, which gives the floatier, more retro Poppy elements, room to weave in and out of each other creating textures and melodies. This reMix’s combination of ‘80’s elements gives the vocals a new, The Thompson Twins-esque, lease-of-life which makes this version of the track stand out from the others. There’s some lovely solo work in there too. It feels like we’ve been watching The Sanfernando Sound grow and mature as an artist over the past year, both in terms of production and musical ability. I’d say he was ready for his final exam.
Dusty is developing a really interesting sound. On first listen he seems to be on Nu-Disco or Dreamwave tip, but there’s a lot more going on under the hood. In this reMix there are strong elements of both ‘80’s Pop and early ‘90’s House, in the melodies and basslines respectively, which makes for something a bit fresh sounding to compliment R3sets ethereal ElectroPop track. Dusty Digital has evoked a new atmosphere for the track, one of distance befitting the subject matter.
