San Fransico based Indie Dance/Nu Disco act Tone of Arc’s, “Run Rabbit Run” gets a digital release with UK musician Eric Volta taking on the reigns of remixing the tune. Eric was immediately drawn towards this B-side beauty, part of an EP original when it was first released from the boys behind Tone of Arc. One half of the band Derrick Boyd provides the lustrous, textured vocals over the first remix of the pack, twisting the track “Eric Volta’s Down The Rabbit Hole Mix” harnesses haunting flute calls and woody electronic depth. There’s a flair and individualism attached to the beats that work wondrously well with the mutating rhythms in the work he has put down. The claps and drummy pattern only accentuate all the layered musicality.

The second offering; Eric Volta’s “Running With The White Rabbit Mix” on the other hand, is pling plong fun and supremely confident in the bass precision. The vocals fit in to this latter remix even better, and the scintillating melodies that have been crafted and shaped inside the clunky, dubby juddering dynamics are grand to the ears. These two locos fusing Volta’s stamp, are sure to start up a great many dj sets in sunny outdoors, joined by larks fluttering in song. And why not, this release from Touch of Class Records is that good.
