Adam Beyer, Bart Skils, Layton Giordani remixes Pete Lazonby ‘Sacred Cycles’


The ReMix Collection celebrates Renaissance’s proud heritage which has seen the brand at the forefront of electronic music since its inception in 1992. The concept behind the collection is to put a fresh and exciting take on seminal tracks that are closely connected with Renaissance’s heritage.

The next release in their acclaimed series – a stunning reworking of Pete Lazonby’s 1994 classic ‘Sacred Cycles’ from one of the biggest names in techno – Drumcode boss Adam Beyer, who teams up with fellow Drumcode alumnae, Bart Skils and Layton Giordani.

The trio cleverly intertwine the swooping synths and spoken word sample from Genesis’ ‘The Fountain Of Salmacis’ in Pete Lazonby’s original ‘Sacred Cycles’ and inject a heart-pumping bassline and bring in a powerful drop to give it the signature Drumcode sound.

Renaissance boss Geoff Oakes said: “The ReMix Collection has been a real labour of love. Selecting the right track and the right remixer is the biggest part of the challenge and as with the previous releases in the series we landed the perfect combination. It’s always difficult to remix such an iconic classic but the guys have really delivered. Amazing update on a track that’s very close to my heart!”‘Sacred Cycles’ will be available as a digital download, via streaming, and as a limited-edition vinyl produced as a highly collectable and beautifully packaged box set. The limited-edition vinyl will include Pete Lazonby’s original mix as the B-side.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
