Building on the successful reissue of The Micronauts classic “Get Funky Get Down” with Daft Punk’s first ever remix, Micronautics presents Rituel’s new single “Dreams”.
Rituel (Christophe Monier and Thomas Regnault) have a habit of creating unique musical blends and unearthing unorthodox vocals. “Dreams” doesn’t disappoint.
The ethereal mixture of new wave and deep house features vocals of Carlton, the iconic Bristolian vocalist who sang on Massive Attack’s first ever single, as well as working with Bomb The Bass and pre-trip hop originators Smith & Mighty.
Remixes come courtesy of four talented producers:
Thomas Gandey (Get Physical/Moda Black/OFF/Suara/Southern Fried) from Brighton, currently living between Berlin and Bordeaux, delivers a floor-filler that adds a disco feel to the original.
Pallace, a Frenchman living in London who produced the hit single “Saturday Love” with Zimmer (Columbia UK), does what he does best and gives “Dreams” a catchy 90s house treatment.
Then Electrosexual (Rock Machine/Duchess Box), a Frenchman living in Berlin, takes the tune to acid territories, while the French celebrated producer John Lord Fonda (Citizen/Boxon) bends the original into a progressive techno version.
The artwork and the press shots have been created by Emmanuelle Mafille, a visual artist who worked for Yves Saint-Laurent, Hermès and Shiseido, while the graphic design has been created by Sylvia Tournerie, who is handling Micronautics’ visual overhaul.
