DJ Tennis has remixed Mr. Tophat for a new EP.
Celebrating the 10th anniversary of DJ Tennis' Life And Death label this year, which has been home to releases from Bawrut, Mind Against, Tale of Us, and Red Axes, 2020 kicks off with a two-track EP from Swedish producer Mr. Tophat, and a remix from the label boss himself.
DJ Tennis first heard 'Time Lapse', which was originally released on Mr. Tophat's 2019 album 'Dusk to Dawn Part II', when Axel Boman played it at Miami Music Week during a back to back set, and a few months later, Tennis was asked to remix it. "I realised how well crafted the original was," he says, "with a classic flute player, incredible singer and synths and analogue compression - it was a work of art like a pop track on a major label. Beautifully made." The pair later hooked up and grew closer over a shared love of sonic craftsmanship and real attention to detail, so Tennis decided to re-release the original and work on a new take of the remix.
