Stream Altered Natives’ walloping remix of Photek in full

Written by FACT Team on Wednesday, July 25 2012

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…”

Photek (pictured above) will be presenting a special Modus Operandi set tonight – Wednesday 25 July – for Tiger Beer’s Hidden Depths of Hospital Records party, in association with FACT and Black Atlantic, at London’s XOYO. This is a supremely rare opportunity to hear Photek revisiting the sounds his iconic debut album; for more information and tickets click here.
