Sometimes you are browsing the SoundCloud feed, randomly pressing play because you like the artwork of a release or recognize the name of an artist that you danced to during the last Summer at a hidden-location open air… then you see the magic word that makes your heart race and time freeze: EDIT! This new form of interpretating a song has been responsible in the last years for bringing (back) to the spotlight old and forgotten gems that were and can be the source of inspiration for brand-new cuts.
Now imagine a twelve-track multi-genre release featuring only edits, remixes, and reworks of splendid tunes from the past. Mouthwatering, isn’t it? Well, this is exactly what the rising Mexican label Boyanza Records is soon bringing to life. On board, rising & established local heroes such as Tyu, Dan Solo, My Boy Roy (SXDNS231), Alex Aguayo, Didaskein (SXDNS331), and Durango 95, just to name a few.
For his take on Ivan’s Italo-Disco-beast “Fotonovela”, from the fourth studio album of the Spanish artist, “Baila” (1985), Durango 95 pays a proper tribute by keeping virtually everything from the original and adding spot-on filters and FXs for a more modern touch.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
