Chaney’s ‘Dixons’ gets remixed
UK producer and hero of Swindon, Chaney aka Theo Altieri drops two remixes of his latest single ‘Dixons’.
Theo began his career in music early. He got his start touring pubs, playing drums in his brother’s band until his older sibling decided he was too cool to play alongside an eight-year-old and Theo was forced to go solo. So he picked up a guitar, starting writing songs and had signed a publishing deal before the age of 18. After making his trade as a singer/songwriter for a while, he started to experiment more with dance music, playing with loops and beats in his parent’s basement. What emerged quickly became his signature style: winking odes to nights out, set against irresistible club-ready backdrops.
On the surface, ‘Dixons’ might be an ode to one of Britain’s forgotten High Street icons; but under the dancefloor-friendly facade, it’s a lament to the perils of small-town suburban claustrophobia. ‘Dixons’ comes with Chaney’s own acid-flecked refix and our debut transmission from UK Techno legend Dave Angel, who delivers a chunky house version primed for the dance floor.
Chaney says: “I wrote ‘DIXONS’ in a riled up mood after a few remarks when I was working at my first proper job, pulling pints at my local. If you do something creative with your days, rather than working a 9-5 at a retail store or bank – people in small towns normally have something clever to say! In the heat of the moment, after one too many “When are you gonna get a proper job” kind of remarks, I had ‘Dixons’ going round my head”.
Chaney will release his debut EP this year, so keep em’ peeled on dt for more on this guy! Buy Chaney ‘Dixons’ Dave Angel remix from here: https://Chaney.lnk.to/DixonsRMXPR
