Photek’s ‘Levitation’ has been remixed in walloping fashion by Altered Natives.
The remix, which you can stream below, will be available to buy digitally; the original track appeared on Photek’s recent, terrific DJ-Kicks selection.
“It was a great honour to get the opportunity to remix one of my musical heroes,” says Altered Natives. “Photek’s drum arrangements and sense of percussion always inspired me when I was younger so it only seemed right in my mind that I remixed his work in my own percussive style.
“I chose to follow his song’s original structure as I loved the classical feel and progression of the original version plus his use of more organic sound, so I chose to rewrite using less of the original’s parts instead replaying it all with sounds organic/inorganic more familiar to this end of my own production spectrum. I hope you enjoy the reworking…”
