On the remix Tomas writes:

“I like the idea about selecting remixers that are connected to me, either in personal or in the music. I really needed a proper house mix for Busy Baby, and while I was thinking about which international artist I should pick, suddenly KANT posted one of his songs on Facebook, where we are ‘friends’. So I realized that I didn’t need to search the world, I could just look within my network. I think Kant did an world-class remix and besides it was a pleasure dealing with such a talented and easy producer…no managers or labels where needed this time – just a facebook-chat.”

LISTEN // Tomas Barfod Shares Beacon’s Remix of “Busy Baby”, New Album ‘Love Me’ Out June 10th

Tomas Barfod has shared Beacon‘s [Ghostly International] remix of latest single “Busy Baby”. Listen to the remix above or on our Soundcloud / YouTube.

Pre-order Love Me now via SC Distribution, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

On the remix Tomas writes:

“It’s always fun to get a remix back from somebody, it’s like unwrapping a present when you receive the link for the file, and wait for the music to download. Sometimes the remixer totally messes the original, other times it’s a new little peace of art. Beacon succeded to change the track completely yet keeping a lot of the elements from the original, which is a really hard task. I’m thrilled about their approach.”

Beacon adds:

“A bit about our process: We like to send mixed messages to our synths…confuse them in a way. We will have the pc tell them to do one thing and simultaneously the internal computer inside the synths do another. The results always tend to surprise us and take chords in interesting directions. But its also frustrating and unreliable. Multiple takes, fingers crossed hoping the synth does something special. that’s the treatment we gave Barfod’s chords. you hear it start our remix, notes we’ve chopped and wrangled, dancing between the L and R mix. When it came to the vocals, we decided to use Nina’s voice more as an instrument, floating around, landing every once in a while to check in.

Also today on Vice‘s site THUMP you can hear an exclusive mix Tomas made featuring his favorite house classics. Listen to the mix on their Soundcloud here.
