Dubfire and Audiofly remix Hot Since 82

HS82_04

While everyone is hot on the trail with a week left before Burning Man, Hot Since 82 gets the deep playa tech house treatment courtesy of Dubfire with a remix of Leave Me and an Audiofly remix of Sundown. The Dubfire Playa Remix of Hot Since 82 and Habischman’s Leave Me is both enigmatic and alluring with its hypnagogic synths, visceral vocals, and tribal drum lines. The Audiofly touchup of Sundown beacons a psychedelic awakening, a tune that elicits powerful thoughts while watching the sunrise on the Playa.

The 2-track release is hot off the press from Moda Black, a forward-thinking UK-based record label, that dabbles in the worldly sounds of house and techno. Dubfire’s Playa Remix is an unusual one-off that works because it is completely relevant to the Burner vibes manifesting all around.

The remixes are available for purchase on Beatport, iTunes, and 12″ vinyl direct from Moda Black, or you can stream below for a good listening.

Dubfire Puts on Mini-Marathon at Sunwaves 18

Sunwaves

Sunwaves Festival in Romania is the place to be if festival marathon sets are your fortè. This past weekend it was Dubfire who rose to the occasion to deliver the enthusiastic crowd thirteen straight hours of pure sonic grooves and frequencies. While thirteen hours is a truly impressive feat, it is still only half of what the Italian marathon ambassador, Marco Carola, laid down earlier this year.

Dubfire InstagramWe caught word of the news via Instagram where Dubfire went on to tip his cap to the people of Romania, and to reflect on the musical journey that everyone experienced. From the video below, we also catch a glimpse of Dubfire dropping Slowset by the young Romanian talent, Groovesh.

As expected, Sunwaves 18 featured a wide spectrum of incredible DJ’s from the likes of John Digweed, Hector, Audiofly, Richie Hawtin, and a variety of local Romanian staples. But chalk up another epic marathon in the books at Sunwaves with Dubfire being the man of the hour. Well…hours.
