French Electronica entrepreneurs Kitsune have always been full of surprises. But in a wild card move for the dignified imprint, formidable Caen producers BeatauCue call upon young Swedish peer Adrian Lux to remodel their ‘Slow Down’ single. Already renowned for superior production qualities, there is something distinctly different in his approach to this restrained yet refined remix. Pacing the beats and concisely tailored bass line alongside a closely cut array of high-end leads, Lux escapes the realms of the Progressive House banger to develop a mature and overtly warm collection of deeper club music with unmistakable soul. Off the back of his highly-anticipated debut album, this may come as a shock to many of his adoring fans, but the young Swede successfully proves there is more than meets the eye to his stern studio capabilities.
