Guy Gerber and &Me Remix Art Department’s ‘Catch You By Surprise’
Art Department has today unveiled 2 remixes to their hit track ‘Catch You By Surprise’ from their 2014 artist album, Natural Selection. They come from some of the hottest producers in today’s underground house scene – Guy Gerber and &Me. Both remixes are out now via Ultra Music and Art Department’s very own No.19 Music.
There’s nothing minimal about &Me’s remix, as whirring beeps and percussions softly caress the haunting top line – a vocal performance done by Art Department’s very own Kenny Glasgow. Powerful piano chords rip through an aggressively tuned drum beat in, perfectly dressing the track with &Me’s celebrated techno-leaning touch.
Guy Gerber takes a far darker approach with his rendition – a deep bass assaults the listener amidst dark echoes and fast paced drum play. Balearic hues and perfectly crafted pads make Guy’s take an instant classic, a remix that will fit perfectly into peak time forays. Dance music tastemaker Pete Tong has already been playing this remix out on his Essential Selection and All Gone Pete Tong radio shows.
Buy the remixes + the original “Catch You By Surprise” on iTunes.
