Bronson unveil ‘Remixes No2’ featuring remixes from Hayden James, HAAi, and Prospa

Bronson have released the second phase of remixes for their critically acclaimed, self-titled album debut on Ninja Tune/Foreign Family Collective. Titled ‘Remixes Nº2’, the collection continues to unearth new facets of the project comprised of USA heavyweights Harrison Mills & Clayton Knight (of ODESZA) and ARIA-platinum artist Tom Stell (of Golden Features). The electronic tastemakers tap the likes of Hayden James, HAAi, Prospa, Patrick Topping and obli to deliver a wide-spanning collection of re-interpretations – all bound by a pulsating undertone which pays homage to the original endeavour’s underground and avant-garde inspirations.

Collectively, ‘Remixes Nº2’ is brimming with progressive electronica: it’s an amalgamation of leftfield and club-inclined stylings which reinvigorate the original album. Opening with a take on “Dawn”, Hayden James recasts its buoyant soundscapes into a reverberating, hypnotic setting that centres upon Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs’ ethereal vocals. Female powerhouse and Australian DJ, HAAi, reconstructs “Keep Moving” into an industrial composition tailor-made for the warehouse, celebrating the gritty backbone of the original track. Buzzing UK duo, Prospa, lend their classic rave-reminiscent touch to “Know Me”, yet also add a sense of modern, experimental nuance, steeped in off-kilter, distorted synths. Furthermore, Foreign Family Collective newcomer, obli, balances the EP with a soulful rendition of “Call Out”, bolstering the original with a funk-inspired guitar riff. Lastly, Patrick Topping closes out the package with a powerful tech-fueled re-work of “Heart Attack”, primed for the dancefloor with its retro synth lines and crisp percussion.
