Eelke Kleijn’s Outside The Box Music label is back this week for a remix edition of his ‘Kitten of Mass Destruction’ EP which was released in October of 2012. ‘Eenvoud’ was considered by many to be one of the Dutch producers best melodic records to date while ‘Kitten of Mass Destruction’ struck a chord with many with for its quirky brilliance. The new interpretations here are provided by Navar, MUUI and Praveen Achary.
The first interpretation comes from Eelko Wijnja aka Navar who is making his first appearance on Outside The Box here. The Dutch producer has been a firm favourite of Guy J and Hernan Cattaneo in recent months and we love his deep, hypnotic style as well. Here he reinvents ‘Eenvoud’ into a smooth, melodic techno construction that is full of vitality. The warm bass tones, incandescent electronics and eerily subtle vocal pads create a wonderful flow full of emotions as the track reaches the main break. Here the low end really shines with surging walls of chord changes which push the emotions higher. The drop peaks with some squirrely electronics and tension filled tones which should do some serious damage on the dance floor as the warm groove drops back in for an epic moment.
The next interpretation comes from MUUI who overhauls ‘Kitten of Mass Destruction’ quite nicely. If you are not familiar with MUUI then you are really missing out, he’s an Australian producer with an incredibly unique and eclectic style which is full of fresh sounds and ideas. For his ‘Kitten of Mass Destruction’ remix MUUI has crafted an incredibly funky, low slung groove which should create some serious momentum on the floor. The glassy bells provide some cool melodic hooks and the piece flows extremely well with some enchanting atmospheres elevating the senses as the track reaches a smooth apex.
The final remix on the package comes from Praveen Achary who is making his debut on Outside The Box here. The Indian producer has continued to rise through the electronic music underground in 2012 with appearances on Baires Records, Mirabilis and Proton’s heavily influential Compiled & Mixed series. Praveen’s ‘Juicebox’ radio show continues to dominate the friskyRadio airwaves with the freshest electronic music and a forthcoming label under the ‘Juicebox Music’ name is set to launch later on this year as well. With 2013 now underway Praveen has just come off a spectacular single for Cid Inc’s Replug imprint entitled ‘Space Machine’. The production has enjoyed an extended stay in the Beatport progressive house charts and the Cid Inc. Remix was selected as Beatport’s Must Hear Progressive House record for the week of its release. For his ‘Flierefluiter’ interpretation Praveen has crafted a deep and sultry tech house rework that really hits the spot. A remarkably spacious and well shaped bass line sits at the foundation while some beautifully textured tones and aquatic electronics tease the senses nicely throughout. Another top production from Praveen who we expect big things from in 2013. Release Promo Hype Chart Top 25
