Hans Hoyst remixes Soulitaire ‘New Breed’


The minimal tech-house producer Hans Hoyst has provided a sublime remix of Soulitaire’s (pictured) recently released single, ‘New Breed’, due out today – 1st December via Violet Noise Records.

Hoyst, first garnered attention as his previous moniker Stenchman, receiving airplay on BBC 1’s Xtra Rewind, BBC 1 Xtra’s MistaJam, BBC Skream and BBC Introducing and support from Resident Advisor and Rolling Stone.  His rework of ‘New Breed’, brings the Austrian musician’s to exactly where we love it – the dancefloor!  Breathing basslines, sturdy beats are drenched in prominence, reversed waves of synthesizer bliss, and arpeggio sequences complete with crushing energies and atmospheres against Rotheneder’s delicate, silken vocal work – it really transports you to 2am mode, which is what we love!

Hans Hoyst gives a breakdown of the remix: “The track starts with a sample of the guitar line from the original production, heavily processed to complement the ethereal nature of the vocals giving a swirling dreamy nature to the introduction. The remix as a whole evokes the imagery projected in the vocals, the line “all of us fearful, struggling to cope” is contextualised with a production style that makes its appearance to act as a guide through the fog of uncertainty – heralding a sense of optimism, and serving as an allegory to the process of overcoming anxiety.”

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.
