Remix City Sifting through mountains of remix trash so you don't have to, in an attempt to find the ones that contribute to their originals. In this post, three solo musicians -- Active Child, Bright Moments, and Emily Wells -- get refined remix treatment from GRVRBBRS, Shuttle, and BATHS, respectively.

 

Active Child

Active Child, the solo project of Pat Grossi, gets some remix treatment from GRVRBBRS, at no sacrifice to the original sexy vibes of "Hanging On." Beauty, beauty, beauty. About his latest full-length, the nostalgic and emotional You Are All I See, Grossi says, "You Are All I See is an attempt to build a bridge between the listener and I, in that, I wrote these songs for you as much as I did for me. And right now when you are listening to my voice, by yourself, it really is just you and I." Full tour dates at the bottom of this post, with Balam Acab and Superhumanoids on support. These dates coincide with the reissue of his The Curtis Lane EP on 10" vinyl! ACTIVE CHILD - "HANGING ON" (GRVRBBRS REMIX) ACTIVE CHILD - "HANGING ON" (ORIGINAL)
