Art Department – ‘Catch You By Surprise’ (Guy Gerber Remix)
Deep, hypnotic and mesmerizing are all words synonymous with the music produced by Art Department. The production duo consisting of No. 19 Music label head Jonny White and Canadian techno legend Kenny Glasgow have made a massive impact on dance music since their debut release in 2010. That same year they were awarded top track honors from Resident Advisor and Beatport for their track "Without You," making them one of the fastest growing acts in recent history. With such high expectations right off the bat they’ve managed to come through every time as their 2014 artist album Natural Selection was met with great success. Sure to have another massive year they present us with two remixes from some industry heavyweights that offer up their take on an Art Department original.
The remix package consists of the track "Catch You By Surprise" from their Natural Selection album and has been completely transformed by &ME and Guy Gerber. The mellow and progressive original has been injected with some dancefloor heat by remixers who know what works when controlling the decks. &Me’s remix brings the beeps and percussions to the forefront, softly caressing the vocal performance done by Art Department’s very own Kenny Glasgow. A remix that will truly have you in a daze.
Guy Gerber's remix takes on a darker approach. Balearic patterns and an expertly crafted melody make this take an instant classic, a remix that fit's perfectly into peak time performances. Dance music trendsetter Pete Tong has already rinsed this one on his Essential Selection and All Gone Pete Tong radio shows.
Released from No. 19 Music under exclusive license to Ultra Records, you can purchase both remixes from iTunes.
