Avalon release a new Remixes EP with remixes to Astrix and Ace Ventura & Symbolic!
Avalon has just released a 2-tracker EP on Nano Records, the first in a new remixes series to be released on the label. For the opening chapter of the series Avalon remix 2 psytrance classics, one of them released over 10 years ago (Astrix – Tweaky).
Remixing a classic tune like Astrix – Tweaky is always hard, but Avalon managed to keep the uplifting vibe of the original while giving it a fresh touch. The psychedelic “Astrix-style” riffs of the original are combined with a fat, up-to-date bass-line. Great job on this remix.
The 2nd track on the EP is a juicy remix of Ace Ventura & Symbolic’s ‘Prime Time’. Great Psy-Progressive vibe on this one: bouncy bass-line, tons of spacey psychedelia and hints of the captivating melody of the original, decorate this remix.
Nano Records also include a bonus track on this release. Avalon made a Full-on remix to “Astrix – Tweaky”, and this psychedelic twister will be given free to anyone who will purchase the full release. Listen to it:
