Chicago-via-NYC club king Brenmar lends his low end expertise to Rome Fortune’s “Dance,” masterfully building up tension and release with handclaps, finger snaps and truly filthy 808s. That bedroom boom! Stay tuned for more “Dance” remixes in 2016 along with more from Rome’s upcoming Jerome Raheem Fortune LP on Fool’s Gold. Premiered on FACT, listen to it below and check out the video for the original here.
Brenmar’s awesome Award EP was a showcase for this New York club king’s production finesse. Now a gang of DJ favorites return the favor on the diverse new Award Remixes collection, taking the originals to all kinds of speaker-friendly new directions. Gutta flips “Award” featuring Dougie F into a low-end Jersey smash, Enferno adds even more bedroom boom to “Plenty To Spare” feat Ro James, and Harlem’s Austin Millz takes “Don’t Want It” feat Sayyi to new levels of trapped-out intensity. The EP closes out with two very special house mixes of Award hit “Hula Hoop” feat Uniiiqu3, with DiscoTech providing champagne-n-sparklers energy and ex Crookers / current Main Course chief BOT getting deep and funky. Premiered today on PAPER, listen to the Award Remixes now (and if that’s not enough, fans and aspiring producers can get busy on “Hula Hoop” themselves with an official Fool’s Gold remix contest on Audiomack. Bring it back around!)
