Liverpool’s LUNA, ethereal songstress, producer and performer is launching a club-ready remix EP of her debut record, ‘Hello Earth’.
The five reworks come via an extremely talented array of North West producers (and friendly faces) that include Stealing Sheep, Haku (Chris Barker) and Mystique.
Originally a downtempo electronica EP, these club-orientated remixes of ‘Hello Earth’ take you from the lonely midnight cigarette to the thriving 3am dance-floor. The melancholic, emotive core of the original EP remains, but each track is wickedly infused with an energy and drive that makes them tailor made for our eventual return to the club.
MDR is proud to premiere Manchester-based DJ and producer Mystique’s remix of ‘Lay Like Stars’. The track opens with a mellow and emotive rework of ‘Lay Like Stars’, with lush drums and a rolling beat nestled beneath ethereal vocals and otherworldly synths.
Next up on the EP, Rebecca Hawley of art-pop three-piece Stealing Sheep layers ‘5am’ with sparkling percussion and vocoders galore, before diving straight into a pumping 4/4 and sizzling bassline.
This is followed by Haku (one half of Deep Space Orchestra), who steps up to the helm with an electro version of ‘Lay Like Stars’, boasting punchy toms, acidic arpeggiators and infectious basslines.
Then we float into a poignant reimagine of ‘Cold Coffee’ from Ross Robertson, with lush guitar licks, hypnotic breaks and a trance-laden grand finale.
The record ends with an unmistakable bang with MaxQuerade’s jungle take on ‘Wind’ – fast, hard and packing an undeniable punch!.
