Teki Latex – Dinosaurs With Guns, remix competition winners
“Thanks to the hundred-and-twenty-something people who participated in that remix competition, it took us a bit of time to listen to everything while touring Australia and North America but we picked our top 5 remixes and put together a little selection of a few more cool remixes for you to dig out, complete with humble but hopefully helpful feedback courtesy of the Sound Pellegrino founding fathers Orgasmic and I + Dinosaurs with Guns OG producer Noobâ€™s pick.
#1 – TWR72
Wins a spot on the Dinosaurs With Guns remix EP coming before the end of the summer!
Orgasmicâ€™s opinion: really dope techno warehouse hit, weâ€™ve been following Roger 72 for a while, I used to play his DJ DLG remix, heâ€™s an excellent producer and I really like this new, more techy style of his.
Teki Latexâ€™s opinion: I also remember The Walk & Roger 72 from the MySpace era. What a drastic change in style! This is awesome abrupt mountain climbing techno, itâ€™s a great tool and an absolute weapon for DJs, this is definitely the remix Iâ€™m the most likely to play, great job!
#2 – Art Nouveau
Wins 50â‚¬ worth of Institubes/Sound Pellegrino items from the Institubes online store!
Orgasmicâ€™s opinion: Really cool melody, has a bit of a white knight II vibe to it, sounds like a potential summer hit.
Teki Latexâ€™s opinion: Art Nouveau are getting better with every track and they embrace their pop side more and more, while keeping it classy and housy, this is a success! Coincidentally this remix uses a bassline melody/harmony very similar to the DOP remix of Renaissance Manâ€™s What is Guru, which proves great minds think alike.
#3 – Gloved Up
Orgasmicâ€™s opinion: sweet baile funk horns mixed with a nice housy vibe, love the melody
Teki Latexâ€™s opinion: awesome bouncy house stomper. I just have a problem with the simpletext voice at the beginning. We needed something with wind instruments so that Roundtable Knights could play it :)
The Gloved Up remix is also Noobâ€™s special pick! Kudos!
#4 – Broke One
Orgasmicâ€™s opinion: really nice one, well produced and right in the vibe of the stuff we dig at the moment, only problem: too much synth in the breakdown
Teki Latexâ€™s opinion: Super nice and original but gets a bit too heavy and repetitive towards the end
#5 – Clouds
Orgasmicâ€™s opinion: Nice groove, solid remix
Teki Latexâ€™s opinion: efficient and tool-esque but a bit too similar to the original
Places 6-12 after the jump.
#6 – Neitee and Yeutta
Orgasmicâ€™s opinion: cool acid build up, i like it
Teki Latexâ€™s opinion: good stuff but nothing too original
#7 – Wax Motif and Kato
Orgasmicâ€™s opinion: not super original but very well produced and a bit of a big room guilty pleasure for us
Teki Latexâ€™s opinion: caters to the proggy house lover inside of me. Different from what i was expecting from Waxy and Kato but still, it works! and it really stood out from the mass of dull techno remixes.
#8 – Poligono
Orgasmicâ€™s opinion: nice but the synths come in too late
Teki Latexâ€™s opinion: Very deep and good. Iâ€™ve been following Poligono for a while, they have great potential.
#9 – John Roman
Orgasmicâ€™s opinion: nice but it feels like more of an edit
Teki Latexâ€™s opinion: I like it and i can see why people would wanna play it, itâ€™s a little bit too anonymous to be a winner though.
#10 – Starving Burgers
Orgasmicâ€™s opinion: nice riff but a bit too repetitive
Teki Latexâ€™s opinion: very promising and original italo vibe but i was waiting for a bit more stuff to happen
#11 – La Kustom
Orgasmicâ€™s opinion: nice ideas in the vocal cut ups but somethingâ€™s missing
Teki Latexâ€™s opinion: quite cool but lacks a bit of soul and stomp
#12 – Kuti 77
Orgasmicâ€™s opinion: original but kind of hesitating between styles, in a way thatâ€™s not confident enough.
Teki Latexâ€™s opinion: I just like it because it reminds me of â€œdrop it like itâ€™s hotâ€, it has potential.
