Alright EP

LA producer LUXXURY (Blake Robin)'s 'Alright EP' deconstructs the title track of his latest album. Arriving at a moment of transition, the song - performed, sung and fully mixed by Robin - is a minimal synthpop ode to optimism, with the message: 'everything is gonna be alright.' In the classic tradition of Jamaican versioning, the tracks are not remixes but rather deconstructions and reductions of the original. For example, 'Alright (Dub)' removes the synths from the original; while 'Alright (Ambient)' isolates *only* the synths; and in classic 12' single form, 'Alright (Drumcapella)' allows the listener to hear just the beat under the isolated vocal; while 'Alright (Instrumental) trips away the vocals allowing the deep bass and shimmering synths to shine.

As LUXXURY puts it: 'As a collector of multitrack stems, I enjoy hearing the soloed instruments and wanted to experiment with releasing my own material that way. These elements can certainly be used as DJ and remixer tools, but they also stand alone for a listener to enjoy and hear the song in a completely new way. And I love how, unlike remixes, nothing new has been added to the song, only taken away: these are all simply reductions of the original version.' The song itself a reworking of LUXXURY's song '..At Any Moment' (playlisted by Purple Disco Machine) - so these versions are versions of a version. You heard me.
