Thanks to Chicago-based producers Autograf, we get to enjoy what feels like a glorious, endless summer as they hand out tune after tune. Every month this season, one lucky song will get the Autograf treatment, and be transformed into a future house, summer-inspired remix motivated by festival tent vibes, poolside jams, and warm summer club nights. Oh, and when I said hand out, I actually meant hand out. Autograf is giving them all away for free as a way of thanking the fans.
The Future Summer (#FutureSummer) remix series kicked off last month with Pharrell & Daft Punk's "Gust of Wind," and has returned this week with the second installment, Autograf's cover of a cardinal EDM anthem, Swedish House Mafia's "One." The group shares how the concept came about:
4 summers ago we were catching Soulwax/2ManyDJs' set at Lollapalooza. They were on the dance stage, up against Lady Gaga on the main. Halfway through their set, as they were taking us to another level, the whole crowd started chanting "Fuck Lady Gaga!" for a good 20 minutes. You could tell it was the start of something big for dance culture. Since then, dance music has taken some really interesting twists and turns. So for Issue 2 of our ongoing "Future Summer" series, we wanted to cover an epic festival hit from 4 years ago, and bring it into The Future by giving it a sexy tropical house/future house chill vibe, appropriate for any pool party or late night festival vibe tent.
These guys are killing it. Keep your eyes peeled for more!
