The next Bonzai 12-inch venture is a superb Techno fuelled remix from Bart Skils of the world-wide smash hit Universal Nation. On the flip we have the original masterpiece that never ever disappoints.
We all know the story of Universal Nation and that of its creator. There has been a plethora of remixes over the years, taking the original sound into new territory, new genres. Each and every effort has its own merits and we couldn’t be prouder of the impact this has had on electronic dance music history. This release will be in collaboration with Filth On Acid who will be releasing Bart’s remix in digital format. Dutch DJ and producer Bart Skils is the man of the moment, delivering the goods in a brand-new twist in the legacy of this mighty classic. A highly respected artist in Holland and beyond, Skils’ DJ sets are celebrated by Techno lovers as forward thinking and well-constructed. He is part of Adam Beyers’ leading Techno imprint, Drumcode Records and he’s churned out quite a few releases on several other labels. He is very much in demand and his passion for music takes him to various locations around the Europe. With this solid remix we’re delighted to have him on board.
Bart Skils adorns the A-side with his remix and he notches up quite a treat for us which will grab a lot of attention. Pounding kick drums lead the way alongside deep rumbling basses that dominate the low end. The infectious Universal Nation melody filters in, teasing us with snippets of the wide-open synths. Before long we’re locked in as the melody in all its glory is unleashed. On the break we find the original robotic vocals as the melody builds along with a snare roll taking us to the climax and back to full-on mode for the duration.
As an added bonus, on the flip, we have the original masterpiece that never ever disappoints.
