Violet "Palmas (Photonz Remix)"
Violet is a Portuguese producer and former Red Bull Music Academy participant with a penchant for smooth, Detroit-styled house music. On this remix by newcomers Photonz, however, the dark, sensuous touch of Violet's original "Palmas" is dabbed with a touch of woozy-eyed gravitas that sees strings, pads, and vocoder synths detuning in a wave pool of heat-addled hysteria. The track is anchored assuredly by Photonz's slamming four-by-four beat, which crisply propells the remix through seasick passages, tropical sunrises, and a few closing moments of pure early '90s grooves. "Palmas (Photonz Remix)" is off of a new EP from Violet, called Collective Data, which dropped digitally today by Ukrainian imprint Wicked Bass. Have a listen to a preview of the EP after the jump, and check out the tracklist while you're at it.
