Glorious, splinter-thin moments when a sound is both free to do whatever it wants and still functioning as a new power source…”

Starring Their Dads

Today sees the DFA release of the Wait & See Remix EP from Holy Ghost!, featuring remixes by Moby, CFCF, Flight Facilities, Kris Menace and Richard X.  The band is also excited to announce their involvement in this summer’s first Identity Festival, an electronic touring festival that will touch down at outdoor amphitheaters from coast to coast. The band will join artists such as Pretty Lights, Rusko, Disco Biscuits, Skrillex, DJ Shadow, The Crystal Method, and many, many more on the tour! Check below to see which cities the Identity Festival will be touching down in this summer.
There are certain songs that are so very good, that the only singular word that accurately describes them is “satisfying.” “Wait & See” is one of those: an aural pleasure that scratches an itch and hits the spot so precisely, it almost feels like self-denial not to listen on repeat. On Holy Ghost!’s latest EP, the absurdly catchy single from their self-titled 2011 debut gets a makeover from five of dance music’s titans: CFCF, Flight Facilities, Moby, Kris Menace and Richard X. And while this batch of remixes finds the artists behind each track steering in new directions, each finds a way to capitalize on the irresistible danceability of the original.
In Moby’s case, that process begins with a newly included guitar riff, an ominous synth and a hint of the familiar keyboard line; the song lies in wait before being overtaken by intense, swelling synthesized strings and percussion that hits like a kick. Australia’s Flight Facilities pump up the rhythm and energy, resting everything on a disco-funk bassline so flawless in both its selection and placement, it feels like perfection. CFCF start with a more fluid, laidback feel- think lazing synths and crowd-rousing drums, and then insert deep electro bass alongside the circular, swimming keys.
Richard X takes a synth heavy turn, delivering a remix that feels like very essential (electro)pop. Producer Kris Menace’s Vocal Re-interpretation boils the vocals down to the party essentials, cutting straight to the hooky chorus and keeping all four beats squarely on the floor. And his straightforward redux snips even deeper, offering a voiceless instrumental to keep the night going.
DFA presents both a vinyl and digital version of this very necessary EP for dance music fans. The physical release contains the Holy Ghost! original, Kris Menace’s Vocal Re-Interpretation, and remixes from CFCF and Richard X. Included in the digital release are all of the aforementioned tracks, as well as contributions from Moby, Flight Facilities and Menace’s instrumental remix.

On April 5, Walt Disney Records will release TRON: Legacy RECONFIGURED, featuring remixes of selections from the original motion picture soundtrack. The 15-track album was produced by Mitchell Leib, President of Music and Soundtracks for the Walt Disney Studios and Jason Bentley, “TRON: Legacy” Music Supervisor.

TRON: Legacy RECONFIGURED is an eclectic mix of acclaimed DJs, remixers and producers from all points of the globe with their own fresh take on select tracks from the original film score, composed by Daft Punk.   Highlights on the album include multi-platinum artist Moby with “The Son of Flynn”; “The Grid” by platinum-selling electronic music duo The Crystal Method (Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland); and “End of Line” by award-winning German electronic music producer and DJ, Boys Noize (Alexander Ridha).  Another highlight on the album is “Fall” which features a collaboration between electronic/dream pop act M83 and Jonathan Bates’ Big Black Delta.

From the album’s liner notes, Bentley says: “RECONFIGURED now brings the music full circle, assembling some of the leading producers of Dance and Electronic music today to, in the words of Zuse, ‘Change the scheme, alter the mood…electrify the boys and girls.’ The results are a thrilling collection of biodigital jazz for disco denizens worldwide that pays homage to Daft Punk’s own legacy through the modern art of the remix.”
Leib adds: “This is the most natural and respectful extension of our TRON soundtrack legacy and one which embraces the electronica club roots of its artistic invention.  Now the entire world can dance to the sounds of THE GRID. ”
The RECONFIGURED track list follows:

1. The Glitch Mob – “Derezzed”
2.  M83 VS Big Black Delta – “Fall”
