LISTEN: Cosmo’s Midnight ‘The Dofflin’ (Wave Racer Remix)
It happened. I just died and went to hyper-heaven. Well, at least that’s what it felt like when I listened to the latest WAVE RACER remix just now.
WAVE RACER, one of Sydney’s youngest, latest and greatest producer – the very same guy who just recently signed to Future Classic (home to artists such as Flume, Hayden James, and Jagwar Ma) and has also been touring around with Nina Las Vegas on the nationwide Triple J House Party Tour has just dropped his first official remix as a follow up to his initial breakthrough split release Stoopid/Rock U Tonite, and boy is it a tune.
Jumping on remix duties for the latest single from COSMO’S MIDNIGHT – who are twin producers from Sydney signed with Astral People – WAVE RACER’S take on The Dofflin see’s a return to his maximalist and hyphy staple style, switching up the original vibey somewhat chilled tune into a euphoric dancefloor orientated banger rife with chiptune arpeggios, vocoders and ecstatic drum patterns.
And what’s even better news? The magical tune is up for free download! That’s right, you don’t even have to open your wallet to let this wavy individual into your life. So what are you waiting for? Get downloading!
