10-year music veterans Alex Powell and Oliver Portamento of The Squatters (pictured) remix Arcane Youth’s Memories into a bright house groove, and LessThan3 has the exclusive first play.
Arcane Youth’s original is a bassy house cut with slight wobbles released back in January. The Squatters’ Alex and Oli told LT3 that they heard it gaining steam on Oliver Heldens’ Heldeep Radio show, and the two were immediately inspired with ideas for a re-work. After getting enthusiastic approval from Night Shift, they got to work on their official mix.
“The remix is an uplifting piano houser with a twist at the drop that combines hand-in-hand with a top-line vocal which carries the track nicely,” they said.
With a busy 2015 ahead, The Squatters also have remixes on the way of Hardsoul, Vanilla Ace, and more, in addition to an EP on Vicious Bitch and an original collab with vocalist Little Nikki called Rude Boy. Keep an eye out for these, stream their remix of Arcane Youth above, and pick it up as a limited free download beginning May 13.
