GAWP remixes Devon James ‘Risky Business’


Ahead of the release of his debut artist album Love Reach, Devon James presents a remix package of the singles so far, from Charlie Soul Clap, GAWP and Schroeds.

Set to land on 19 April 2023, Devon James forthcoming album Love Reach is a nine-track narrative of self-discovery told through catchy disco hooks, self-assured indie dance grooves, and swinging house rhythms. Sonically, it synthesizes a decade’s worth of dancefloor elation, global travel, love, heartbreak, and lessons learned into one psychedelic story.

Ahead of its release, James has unleashed a heavy-hitting remix package, with the new version of the singles so far from some of house music’s brightest and best.

Best known as one half of the house and disco-loving duo Soul Clap, Charlie is a much-loved figure in electronic music; a sought-after producer and party-starting DJ renowned for his positive outlook and life-affirming sets and productions. True to form, his Loved Up reinterpretation of Love Reach – a phenomenal collab between Devon James and the iconic Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry is brimming with warmth and optimism, with intricate drums and dreamy chords perfectly complimenting Perry’s unmistakable vocal.

As a result of a lifetime in the studio perfecting his craft and being mindful to only put out music of the highest standard, GAWP has already released a string of tracks on Mixmag’s ‘Label Of The Decade’ Dirtybird, alongside a number of highly respected imprints including Toolroom, elrow, Incorrect, In:rotation, Night Bass and Sink or Swim. Here he takes on Risky Business, toughening up the drums and adding warped vocals and a brooding tension for a crisp, techy house workout.

Completing the package is LA-based producer and engineer Schroeds. His remix of Brighter Days is an effervescent broken-beat delight, harnessing the transportive power of Pretty Heavy’s soaring vocal and delivering one of the biggest feel-good anthems you’re likely to hear this year.

We premiere the remix below and grab it here.

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.
