Fresh from a triumphant set at Primavera Sound, Moullinex releases three slick reworkings of ‘Painting By Numbers’. Xinobi, Art of Tones and GPU Panic, each bringing their own unique flavour to the original, this new release aims to explore the broad depth of avenues and atmospheres that the thumping crowd-pleaser lends itself to.
“I know I’m biased here, but Xinobi’s remix of ‘Darkest Night’ is my favourite remix of any track I’ve ever put out,” Moullinex says. “It’s been six years or so, and I still get requests for it. This time he took Painting By Numbers into a dark, beautiful and moody territory, and this is on the verge of becoming my new favourite.”
Adding his kudos to the Art of Tones rework, he states, “I never pay attention to DJ friendly arrangements, so sometimes it’s hard to play my own tracks when I DJ. Art of Tones is a serious dancefloor wizard, and here he turned the original into a killer on any set of mine.”
Before finally, describing the GPU Panic remix as the “most experimental side of Guilherme Tomé Ribeiro (who actually sings on the original track under his alias UhAhUh), a renaissance man of modern music and capable of stripping the groove out of the original and flipping it into a dark, beautiful gem.”
