Coming off the release of an orchestral make-over for the recent fourth Bourne film, ‘The Bourne Legacy’, Moby’s ‘Extreme Ways’ classic receives yet another fresh lick of paint for 2012, courtesy of German Mpire builder Moguai.

Building on the original’s brittle vocals and ambient, string-driven sample from Hugo Winterhalter’s cover of Fred Neil’s ‘Everybody’s Talkin’, André Tegeler’s acid-esque chord play is met with segments of soothing bliss for something of a signature remix on the eclectic German’s behalf. Although Moby’s lullaby-esque original will remain forever unparalleled where ‘Extreme Ways’ remixes are concerned, Tegeler’s mixture of rock-influenced Electro House indicates that the life and times of Moguai will continue to take turns for the best in the near future.

Once the best kept secret of Europe’s tectonic Progressive players, German Mpire builder Moguai has shown little restraint where his studio assets for 2012 are concerned. Ascending the ranks of EMI to take apart Spanish peer and previously solid-cut underground enthusiast Wally Lopez’s ‘Keep Running The Melody’.

Armed with the vocal assets of Canadian songstress Kreesha Turner, Moguai’s emphasis remains on solid beats and enigmatic lead work throughout. Making the mechanical transition from divine euphoric chord progressions to grinding rhythmic cohesion, the Mau5trap approved producer extends his industrious wings with a quality major label remix without straying too close to the monotony of the mainstream EDM comfort zone.

With Deadmau5 tuned in to his studio output courtesy of Rising Music debut ‘Monkey See Monkey Do‘, Moguai’s 2012 album “Mpire” saw Tommy Trash make his debut on the Canadian’s prestigious Mau5trap Recordings. But in anticipation for his already acclaimed remix of ‘The Veldt‘ to drop, the Australian tunemonger returns to Mau5trap to present a notably heavier take on his own ‘In N Out’ alongside Moguai.

Opting for grinding resonance over melodic delicacy for his own take on the popular extract from Moguai’s album earlier this year, his German peers more intricate leads work is replaced with the full-frontal stylings now better associated with his signature remixing style. Pitting grinding chords against mechanically refined beat work throughout, Trash ups the ante for an already impressive track by turning up the gain and letting rip a thorough insight as to how Electro House remixes should play out in the 21st century.
