Stream: Daniel Avery – Drone Logic (Rødhåd remix)

New.Energy.000Daniel Avery’s debut album Drone Logic was launched in October 2013, proving to be over the past two years an exquisite contribution to the electronic music scene, combining modern dance-floor sounds with the finesse of old-school techno.

Later this year in March, Phantasy Sound, Erol Alkan’s well-known label, will release New Energy, a 2-cd collection of Avery’s remixes. With contributing names like Rødhåd, Ø [Phase], Factory Floor, Perc, KiNK and many others, this is definitely something to be seen as a great addition to the debut album itself, and you can listen below Rødhåd’s reinterpretation of Drone Logic.

While Avery’s debut album received countless rave reviews, I noticed this remix has been stirring up quite a debate among his fans, who seem to have mixed feelings about it and about how it lacks the authenticity of Avery’s sound. After listening to it several times, I consider it to be a hypnotic remix, still having Avery’s trademark, but with an aftertaste of deep melancholia, revealing a different layer of the trip that Avery intended to create through this album. And as he himself puts it, you just need to give yourself up to music.
