Svpreme Fiend "Fervor (Contakt Remix)"
Normally we try not to venture too far into "bigging ourselves up" territory, but sometimes it's hard to avoid when folks toiling behind the scenes at XLR8R HQ also happen to be super talented and doing amazing things outside the office. Take NYC producer Contakt—even the people at FACT and the Local Action label think he's awesome. For the uninitiated, he's one of the resident DJs at the monthly TURRBOTAX® party and also happens to craft his own Detroit-informed takes on house, garage, and the whole UK post-dubstep continuum. Contakt's actually got an EP of his own coming out soon on Local Action, but in the meantime, he's been tapped for this remix of labelmate and fellow New Yorker Svpreme Fiend. He transforms the haunting melancholy of the original into a bleeping, rumbling club roller, and we can't wait to hear what else he's got in the pipeline.
