Ahead of the release of his eighth studio solo record Grunt, Derek Piotr has released EP Earth Edit. A collection of reworkings of a track from Grunt, artist on remix duties are Don’t DJ, Lord Pusswhip, and Chaircrusher.
Derek said: “The remixes are in their own ways very faithful to the source material. The ingredients I built the tracks with are direct and somehow distinct - I find that Don’t DJ and Pusswhip both took different extremes and made aggressive mixes.
“Don’t DJ focused more on texture and the earthen kick-pulse (which is how I named the track), and Pusswhip took the hat element and bass and went in that direction. Chaircrusher’s mix is my personal favourite and is a bit of a different beast, bit more like an ‘extended’ mix but he has this glorious chip of digital noise repeated as a bleep througout most of the mix - a raw happy little element that pings to provide some contrast.”
