The "Wonderland" artist album by sensational Latvian duo Blood Groove & Kikis proved to be a tremendous highlight in our parent label's 6-year history. The album broke through the Top 50 on the iTunes Dance chart and the Top 20 on Beatport (all genres). In addition, the album was kindly supported on radio by Above & Beyond, Kyau & Albert, and other leading global DJs. We are thrilled to present three new remixes of one of the standout album tracks, "Both", a collaboration with Indonesian phenom LTN. These three remixes were chosen as the winners of our latest remix contest, amongst over 100 wonderful submissions.
Russian newcomer Piramex, the grand prize winner of our remix contest, makes an exceedingly impressive debut with his peak-hour interpretation. Muscular beats and a rolling bassline give the track a stormy energy from the very beginning. Many of the original themes are enhanced in this new version, including the lead chords and poignant piano motif.
Ukrainian veteran meHiLove (a.k.a. Yuriy Mikhailov) follows with a glorious deep-progressive take. The arrangement is similar to the original; yet, meHiLove's remix feels fresh, given the exhilarating and funky deep house groove he contributes. To spice up the flavor a bit more, he has added a variety of soulful vocal samples.
Finally, Russian artist Katrin Souza rounds out the package with a deliciously deep and melodically unique rendering. Katrin chose to rework the original themes completely; all of the lead elements, as well as the background pads and side melodies, are new and quite lush, with only a hint of the great original theme in the main break.
