Royal Dust. Mixmag review and exclusive launch of remix

We’re very excited to bring you a new remix from Ricardo Villalobos.

The legendary techno artist has put a twist on ‘Royal’, the dubby, jazz-flecked, loping techno workout by Royal Dust.

Taken from Royal Dust’s self-titled LP, Villalobos brightens up the original track by bring a vibrant bass guitar riff to prominence, sending strung-out horns and whispy atmospherics into the mix. It’s a long, considered, krautrock-esque jam from the Chilean-born producer and you can imagine him dropping it during the wonkier sections of one of his incendiary DJ sets.

This is a real coup for Royal Dust, aka fellow South American Miguel Toro, and the remix will be out on 12″ only via Berlin’s Haunt Music.

Royal Dust ‘The Remixes’ lands on November 15

Royal Dust. Juno Records UK review and link.

After the top-notch jazz fusion acrobatics of his long-player, emergent producer Royal Dust gets the remix treatment from two top shelf practitioners, and the results are as essential as label, artist or listener could hope for. First up is Ricardo Villalobos, who takes a more full-bodied approach compared to his usual stripped down ways, twisting “Royal” into a psychedelic whirl of dubwise, krautrock-inflected instrumentation that meanders through 8 minutes of strung out perfection. Paul Frick meanwhile drops some rolling, broken beat science on “Truco”, letting jazzed-out synths curl around a limber set of drums that belie his learned musicality. In addition to these fine versions, there’s also a sequence of parts for each original track included for would-be remixers to lift from the wax.
