Australian electronic sibling duo Lastlings returns with a new remix of Rose Avenue label-mate and Grammy-nominated producer Cassian’s track, “Together ft. Thandi Phoenix.”

Adding a textured ethereal spin on the pop-forward record, Lastlings seamlessly allows the beauty in Thandi’s vocals to shine beneath their dark evocative sound. “Together” comes off Cassian’s summer debut album release Laps, featuring hit singles with the likes of ZOLLY, Tora, and Gabrielle Current.

On the remix, Lastlings said, “We have been lucky enough to work with and learn from the producer/mixing wizard that is Cassian for a few years now, so it only felt right for us to put our own touch on something from his new album ‘Laps’. Given how close we are with Cass, the idea for this remix came naturally, and as we bounced ideas back-and-forth we found a sweet spot around Thandi’s lush vocals that gave us a warm euphoric hug while also being full of dance-floor energy.”

Cassian added, “Lastlings are ahead of their time. At the start of 2018 I signed up to work on their debut album with them and we immediately scheduled a couple of weeks of studio time at RÜFÜS DU SOL’s original Rose Avenue studio, where they made Solace. Amy was feeling sick and pulled out something I wasn’t very familiar with at the time – a face mask. She had some extra’s she donated to Josh & me and we all decided to wear face masks for the 2 weeks of studio time. They were ahead of their time then and they’re still proving how ahead of their time they are with this incredible remix of “Together.”

Since finding an early home on RÜFÜS DU SOL’s label Rose Avenue, Lastlings have ascended from Australia to the world. Attracting fans in every corner of the electronic music landscape, they’ve earned a spot on Astralwerks roster and released countless major singles including “No Time,” which Cassian co-produced and mixed himself. This year alone Lastlings have commissioned reworks from influential tastemakers like RÜFÜS DU SOL, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and Torren Foot, along with immersive visual accompaniments inspired by the duo’s Japanese heritage. Earlier this week, they released an acoustic performance version of “No Time,” featuring Amy’s flawless vocals echoing against Josh’s polished guitar chords. Watch that here.

Grammy-nominated producer and DJ Cassian has made a name for himself in the industry as a foundational mixing engineer for fellow Australian heavyweights including RÜFÜS DU SOL, Hayden James, What So Not, Crooked Colours, and more. Five years in the making, his first studio album Laps dropped in June, showcasing the skillful sound design that he’s so lauded for. From start to finish, the album traverses Cassian’s robust career through the years, ranging from brooding melodic tech to resounding house synths to polished pop cuts, garnering praise from LA Weekly, Billboard, The Guardian, Mixmag and beyond.
