Skeleten taps Logic1000 and Rings Around Saturn for ‘Walking On Your Name’ remixes
Fresh off the release of his single, ‘Walking On Your Name’, Sydney/Eora’s Skeleten (aka Russell Fitzgibbon) has tapped two of the country’s best to remix his work. Recruiting none other than Logic1000 (who just released her own world-conquering EP in You’ve Got The Whole Night To Go) and Rings Around Saturn (one of the many aliases of Melbourne/Naarm electronic innovator Rory McPike), this very special Skeleten song gets two stellar new versions to get lost in all over again.
Samantha Poulter, aka Logic1000, lends her expert remix chops to ‘Walking On Your Name’, shaking things up to create a chilled out, groove-driven moment. Logic1000 said of the opportunity to remix Skeleten, “I’ve had my ears peeled for new Skeleten releases ever since their debut [Mirrored]. So naturally, when I was asked to remix ‘Walking On Your Name’ I jumped at the opportunity. Such beautiful material to work with, I can only hope I did the track justice.”
As for Rings Around Saturn, he switches the original up entirely. Transporting it to an early-morning club dancefloor, it’s all jungle rhythms and high energy. He said, “With a wealth of great musical material to use in the original track, I figured I could use a sample based ‘Tracker’ sequencer to flip the original into a mid 90s inspired jungle remix. I may have gone overboard with the drum workout but the song was asking for it and at that point it’s not me making the decisions,” says Rings Around Saturn on the track.
And of course, the feelings are mutual with Skeleten saying he felt “super lucky” to work with both artists and commended them for their “outstanding vision.”
“I’ve admired both Logic and RAS for ages and I think it’s clear in these reinterpretations just how good they are at building a whole world in a song. It feels like they’ve both really nailed the wavelength of the original and transported that atmosphere into different times of the night or different states of mind. Genuinely can’t wait to hear these both in the club!”
