Following his lorded debut single Feel the Smoke Rise, enigmatic producer Jaust takes the next steps towards his album Definites. Wearing an entirely different set of colours, We Need a New Life sees Jaust channel his passion for indie and 80’s synth pop. Featuring the vocal talents of James Dean Wells from he Gay Blades, this track will no doubt be finding itself fans in many corners.
Heading up the remixes, Monkeytown Records multi-instrumentalist Alex Banks rewires We Need a New Life in his own unmistakeable style. Taking influence from kaleidoscopic electronica and the LA beats movement in equal parts, his remix sits in no genre camp and is all the better for it.
Portuguese producer Xinobi runs with the remix baton for a 4/4 makeover. As the lead vocals take front and centre, hooking in from the get go before an infectious bass synth jumps into play. This one will take the doors off a disconcerting disco.
Mainlining noise and electro, Shengi makes We Need a New Life her own. Constructing a remix that retains the heart of the original, but opens the curtain to new landscape.
Completing the journey, pushing the limits as he did with Feel the Smoke Rise, Jaust himself grapples We Need a New Life. A cut up style that owes as much to Soulwax as it does to Aphex Twin, try putting this in a box and you will be hard pressed. Jaust is a producer writing his own rules.
