“De Lux have concocted the perfect mix of disco, post-punk and funk"
"New Summers" by De Lux - originally from their latest album Do You Need A Release? gets a reconstruction by Jason Bentley
Jason Bentley is a Los Angeles based DJ and Grammy nominated record Producer. During his tenure as Music Director of acclaimed SoCal radio station KCRW, Jason consistently supported De Lux as host of the daily music program Morning Becomes Eclectic and ongoing Saturday night mix show Metropolis.
“I love the band” remarked Jason “and after hearing “New Summers” I became obsessed with the idea of a different song arrangement - not so much a remix - but rearranging existing elements. The song already has all this smoldering Disco energy, and I wanted to bring that out more and shape it so the song hit differently. I reached out to the band with the idea, and thankfully the guys let me pull apart the original multi-tracks and create the version I was hearing in my head."
