Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic—to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery—DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

LO’99‘s new iteration of his own track, “Stay High” with Doolie, recently hit the airwaves with a vengeance. The Australian producer’s dreamy original made its initial debut earlier in the fall, but this new VIP edition sees the artist prepping the tune for a late-night shadowy dance floor.

Mazare is celebrating a stellar first year with Monstercat by revealing a VIP version of his and RUNN‘s emotive “Where Do We Go.” In the new take on the track, Mazare lets the listeners sink deeper into the melodies that endeared them to the track in the first place. This drumstep-inspired tune is a divergence from the original’s strictly drum ‘n’ bass pattern and is a refreshing new spin on the tune.

San Holo‘s album1 has received a variety of remixes since its birth last September, but the bitbird head honcho has chosen to end 2019 with a 15-track set of remixes. This varied set includes a thought-provoking rework from Rootkit, who’s added a drum ‘n’ bass spin on “go back in time.” It’s a completely different way to experience the minimalist track, and the creativity is just bursting from this new version.

T & Sugah have really come out swinging with their latest RAM Records release. The Dutch duo has quite a story behind this powerful number, and it’s no wonder it’s as brilliantly polished as it is.

“‘Mithras’ is a special one for us, since we started working on it back in 2015,” the duo said in a Facebook post. “At the time it didn’t sound the way we wanted it to, but after having revisited it a couple of times over the years it’s now finally out on RAM Records! This is an example (and reminder to ourselves) that shows it’s better to be patient than to rush a tune.”

UKF‘s massive 10-year anniversary compilation kicked off with the release of Camo & Krooked‘s “Atlas,” and it ended the way it began: with a VIP mix of the same song. This approach to “Atlas” packs a bit more of a punch than its predecessor, but overall it’s different in fairly subtle ways. It’s one of those VIPs that’s fun to listen and re-listen to, discovering all its intricacies.

Exclusive: LO’99 – Bizness (Malive & Lowdown Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

LO’99 is one of Australia’s hottest exports in 2018 and is poised to ride a wave of momentum to new heights as the year progresses. With a number of notable festival appearances slated for the season, the producer’s bass-heavy take on house is finding fans the world over.

Now, his original track, “Bizness,” has received a clever remix from Malive and Lowdown. The duo stay in the comfortable realm of house, but opt for interesting, inventive directions that gives their reproduction a unique flavor. Not at all lacking in bass, the remix melds a number of different sound design styles into a cohesive, utterly grooving rework — one that’s a testament not only to LO’99’s songwriting abilities, but to the pair’s collective ear for style without sacrificing substance.
