Kris Day – Activate
Well after we brought you the wicked Cloudscience by Colin McNeil, (with a belter of a remix by Kinetica), we thought we would look north for inspiration. After receiving one hell of a demo from Scotland’s very own Kris Day, who has had one hell of a year with some awesome productions on many imprints, we thought we would ask fellow Scot Ally Brown to deliver one hell of a remix. He has been impressing us greatly this year at Liquid Pulse.
The two met up, settled their differences from their respective clans over a game of tossing the caber (we were going to ask another Scottish person to master the tune but was fearful of the potential uproar it’d cause), and the result is ‘Activate’. The original has it all, energy from the word go, a menacing kick and bassline and a rather eerie melody. Ally’s remix takes the more uplifting route and delivers a version that nods to the trance of yesteryear but still keeping things modern.
