Wave Racer – Stoopid (DE$iGNATED Remix)
South London producers and latest additions to the Get In roster, DE$iGNATED, waste no time in airing brand new material with their incredible house rendition of Wave Racer’s ‘Stoopid’, out to download free today.
Premiering on the trendsetting e-zine Earmilk last Friday, Nima Bazrcar and Rory Bowyer that make up the duo have brought the release forward for their growing fan base – celebrating what has been a huge debut year for them. A strikingly adept take on a complex track, the remix only highlights how far they’ve come in 12 short months – grab it now and see for yourself:
Despite being just 18 respectively, Rory and Nima behold a natural understanding of the component parts of production. Stripping away the maximalist flourishes that make up Wave Racer’s signature sound, they supplement the stunning record with a lively rhythm and swirling synths to create a dream house track that extracts Stoopid to a whole new place. Ebbing and flowing with that 8-bit style it shares with the original, DE$iGNATED splice in trills and samples that take us back to the Future Classic track, divert to their own unique sound and then all the way back again. With the same diversity in sound as the track progresses and catchy hook to make a dance floor filler, the remix harks back to ‘Valentine’ with the superb vocals of Kyiki from Crystal Fighters. Check out the track that truly found the boys feet amongst the booming UK bass scene.
As we approach the end of their inaugural year as DE$iGNATED, their attention turns to live shows after their recent signing at the talent house that is Elastic Artists. Catch them at their remaining tour dates here.
