Munich-based producer Occupanther went on tour this year with UK Electronica Outfit Vessels. He warmed things up by remixing their standout track ‘Deeper Than A Sky’ (feat. Harkin) from their 2017 album ‘The Great Distraction‘. The record was released on PIAS’ electronic imprint Different Recordings and features top-notch appearances by The Flaming Lips, Vincent Neff (Django Django) and more.

Now the group from Leeds returned the favour and did a remix of Akira‘ (feat. Plateau Green), the second of two self-released singles Occupanther put out this year. Vessels turned the melancholic soft-pop tune into a bumping autobahn stomper. The chopped vocals whirling through the air and the fast & furious synth-string riff add a powerful depth to the original. This is the perfect tune to get in the mood for a wild New Year’s Eve.
