Riding a massive wave of success following his second studio album ‘Wild Youth’, in addition to his nearly fully sold-out ‘Wild Youth’ tour, Dabin now returns with a full remix LP.
Featuring seventeen reworks from a refreshing variety of genres within the dance music space, fans can now experience Dabin’s brainchild in an entirely new way.
The Toronto native’s signature melodic sound has been remixed by an abundance of extremely talented artists, starting off with Duumu, a 20-year-old French producer. His rework of ‘Another Day’ sets the tone for the LP with an unmistakable electro-pop flair. ‘Rings & Roses’, which garnered a wide array of attention throughout the ‘Wild Youth’ tour is tackled by Anki and Slippy who both completely transform the track with future bass inflections and dark brooding undertones. ‘Lights’ is reinvigorated with an electrifying remix from Fransis Derelle, and Covex X Last Heroes who exemplify the records’ already existing infectious melody. ‘Youth’ sees a dramatic makeover from Sam Lamar and Sober Rob, as the once indie leaning ballad now features heavy bass elements. Album standout ‘Alive’ is reconstructed by MitiS and Trivecta who take euphoric approaches to the emotive classic, featuring wildly infectious drops and addictive synth lines. Other remixes include ‘Part-Time Lover’ reworked by Crystal Skies, ‘Altitude’ by Ray Volpe and WE ARE FURY, ‘In Flames’ by Astrale and Inukshuk, ‘Home’ by Mazare, and ‘Bloom’ by IHF and Nurko.
Dabin spent much of 2018 on tour with melodic bass superstar ILLENIUM as part of his ‘Awake’ band and performed alongside him at Coachella, EDC & Shambhala. Early 2019 saw the ‘Wild Youth’ tour span the US as a successful celebration and ode to the release of Dabin’s second studio album, which has amassed over 20,000,000 streams across digital platforms. The Remix LP sees a large group of talented producers spanning the globe reinterpret Dabin’s most successful project to date. Having been given the unique opportunity to restructure such a highly emotive project, a select few producers commented on their process and approach to reworking ‘Wild Youth’.
