Summer 2014 saw the release of Anton Pieetes The News, an eight track selection that further cemented his new musical path. Raw, powerful productions that matched the classic sounds of early Detroit and Chicago, with the future leanings of Antons own production tastes and techniques.
The News was an instant hit with his peers, drawing a tidal wave of compliments and club support and it was some of supporters that Rejected have looked to when drawing up their wish list for this exciting remix release.
UK sensation Mosca was first on board, having been an early fan of the originals. He chose to take on the deep, mysterious and somewhat spooky Next Year, with the Not So Much boss toughening and twisting the original with reversed sweeps in an elongated beatless opening that leaves us feverishly anticipating the drop of the first kick drum, at four and half minutes.
Fellow Dutchman Tom Ruijg goes to work on the title track. Relegating the original's dominant synth chords he strips things back, only to rebuild as a tense, minimal and mysterious techno outing. Anton himself joins forces with Awanto 3, layering their wonderful vocal lick over the original to give it a fresh and addictive new face for the summer.
Detroits own, Rolando, also takes on The News. Feeling at home with those home-town synths he pulls them further within his remix, filtering things down whilst pushing his beats and snare to the fore. Still keeping things deep Rolando creates an impressive and essential rework of Antons original.
