Watch the sunset with Franky Rizardo's remix of Tinush's 'Struggle'

Dutch DJ Franky Rizardo provides the perfect summer house vibes on his remix of “Struggle” by Berlin-based producer Tinush. This is the first of four official remixes on the Sydney imprint Astrx, receiving early support from Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1. Rizardo has a history of reworking some powerful hits, including Marian Hill‘s “Down” and Camelphat & Elderbrooks’ “Cola.”

This sunset mix includes subtle beats, light piano riffs, and a feel-good vocal sample, all the inner-workings of some perfect background music for those twilight moments. Keep an eye out for remixes by fellow Aussie artists Hawksburn (July 6) and Kormak (July 13).

Stream/download the remix from Beatport here or stream below. Intriguingly, Rizardo has a second remix of “Struggle” — an acidic take — set for release June 29.

Marian Hill played an incredible sold-out show last Monday night at Brooklyn Steel with support from Opia. Connecticut-based indie electronic duo Opia began the show with sultry lyrics and John Mayer-esque guitar riffs. Their songs entranced the crowd instantly, and they were particularly excited when the band played a cover of the classic Britney Spears hit “Baby One More Time.”

Marian Hill then took the stage with singer Samantha Gongol and production artist Jeremy Lloyd performing behind white sheets, silhouetted. They then moved from behind the sheets to begin their signature heavy dance sounds accompanied by catchy, sensual lyrics. The show was mesmerizing, with the crowd dancing and singing along to favorites like “Lips” and their latest hit, “Down.” Marian Hill has such a fun, jazzy signature sound and it’s quite a delight to see them selling out the new Brooklyn Steel. This duo will continue to deliver, no doubt.
