Celebrated record label and events brand Renaissance announce the next release in their acclaimed The ReMix Collection series – a stunning reworking of Pete Lazonby’s 1994 classic ‘Sacred Cycles’ from one of the biggest names in techno – Drumcode boss Adam Beyer, who teams up with fellow Drumcode alumnae, Bart Skills and Layton Giordani.
The spectacular and atmospheric remix is set to be a huge track this summer. The three Drumcode titans give Pete Lazonby’s sumptuous trance and progressive house classic ‘Sacred Cycles’ a tougher, harder edge that is perfect for peak-time dance-floors.
The trio cleverly intertwines the swooping synths and spoken word sample from Genesis’ ‘The Fountain Of Salmacis’ in Pete Lazonby’s original ‘Sacred Cycles’ and inject a heart-pumping bassline and bring in a powerful drop to give it the signature Drumcode sound.
‘Sacred Cycles’ remix is receiving strong support from DJs including Pete Tong, Anja Schneider, Monika Kruse, Dubfire, James Zabiela Danny Tenaglia, Nic Fancuilli, Steve Mac Hernan Cattaneo, Joris Voorn and Maceo Plex.
“The ReMix Collection has been a real labour of love. Selecting the right track and the right remixer is the biggest part of the challenge and as with the previous releases in the series we landed the perfect combination. It’s always difficult to remix such an iconic classic but the guys have really delivered. Amazing update on a track that’s very close to my heart!” – Renaissance boss Geoff Oakes
‘Sacred Cycles’ will be available as a digital download, via streaming, and as a limited-edition vinyl produced as a highly collectable and beautifully packaged box set. The limited-edition vinyl will include Pete Lazonby’s original mix as the B-side.
The ReMix Collection celebrates Renaissance’s proud heritage which has seen the brand at the forefront of electronic music since its inception in 1992. The concept behind the collection is to put a fresh and exciting take on seminal tracks that are closely connected with Renaissance’s heritage.
Previous releases in The Remix Collection saw Solomun remix ‘The Age of Love’ (2017), Tale of Us remix Energy 52’s ‘Café Del Mar’ (2018), and Maceo Plex remix Remake’s ‘Blade Runner’.
Renaissance have also returned to their roots by hosting prestigious events at The Mill in Birmingham. Over the past twelve months, Renaissance have brought Dixon, Tale Of Us, Sasha, and Solomun to the second city.
Renaissance – The ReMix Collection Pete Lazonby ‘Sacred Cycles’ (Adam Beyer, Bart Skils, Layton Giordani Remix) will be released 24th May 2019
