REMIXING CLASSICS: MAX COOPER / SASHA

You might remember we had a Max Cooper remix of Sasha’s classic Xpander nearly six months ago on YouTube (here). But it wasn’t going to get a release then because of “label politics“. These must be sorted as the track is available to buy from today.

Max says “I was pretty excited to get the opportunity to remix this iconic track from 1999, and it proved a difficult remix given the strength and familiarity of the hook – I couldn’t really change it without it sounding a bit like Xpander but not quite as good! So I decided to follow exactly what Sasha had asked me to do, which was “wonk the fuck out of it”. The result was some wonked bits and teasing out of the hook, while sticking reasonably closely to the original on the drops. I hope you like it! ps This is a clip, the full length track has an additional intro and outro so it’s mixable.”

I say, he doesn’t do anything too radical but it gets a modern clicky edge and a lot more space between the notes and swooshes. Superb original and good remix. Can Max do no wrong?
