Over the past week I came across some new inviting house remixes by Laidback Luke. Both are fixated on heavy synth sequences and layers of loops. Luke has an elaborate playful way of mixing up the original samples and spinning them to his desire. He takes both these tracks for a walk, especially the earlier touch-up to MSTRKRFT/Jon Legend’s Heartbreaker. Included also is the classic remix to MJ’s Thriller. Halloween’s is around the corner so it’s an excellent grab.
2009 has been an impressive year so far for the Netherlands producer. The collaboration with the Swedish House Mafia on Leave The World Behind was Beatports best-selling song of the year as of July 09. He’s also been on tour all year- from Australia to Ibiza so far with upcoming shows in Europe, Russia and Singapore. If you are in one of these areas it would be worth the investment to check the show. Dates can be found on his myspace.
