Renowned record label and events brand Renaissance brings forth a re-imagining of a classic track via their The ReMix Collection. Said track is Jaydee's 1992 R&S classic "Plastic Dreams", a track further amplified into a scintillating number by producer, DJ and MOOD Records label head Nicole Moudaber.
Atmospheric, yet heady in its delivery, Moudaber's remix of "Plastic Dreams" exudes confidence and invigoration, exalting its original roots.
"I didn’t want to lose the essence of this ground-breaking track," the producer shares. "I kept the balance between house and techno and added a little touch of jazz. I was in New York when I first heard it; I was dancing, I was flying, I was connecting with people, I was making memories. I believe I gave it justice, I certainly gave it a lot of space and respect of its original identity." Without a doubt, the rework does all that; Moudaber's trademark tough yet melodic sound reverberates throughout the track, emphasizing its funky bass notes with fluidity and ease. There's no sense of restraint as she illuminates the original's infamous organ synthesizer refrain, bringing a fresh and vibrant luminescence to the classic.
The ReMix Collection celebrates Renaissance's proud heritage which has seen the brand at the forefront of electronic music since its inception in 1992. The concept behind the collection is to put a fresh and exciting take on seminal tracks that are closely connected with Renaissance's early years. Renaissance have also returned to their roots by hosting prestigious events at The Mill in Birmingham. Over the past twelve months, Renaissance have brought Dixon, Tale Of Us, Sasha, and Solomun to the second city, with a recent set from Amelie Lens.
"Plastic Dreams" is available as a digital download, via streaming, and as a limited edition vinyl—produced as part of a highly collectable box-set. Buy the remix on Beatport here.
