The Dinky Toy Remix EP
Written by Gerrit Elbrink on Monday the 01st of February, 2010
As most of you will know, we organised a Dinky Toy Remix Competition, and today is the day to announce the winners!
We loved this track for its sound, groove and production. It's pretty far off from the original tune, which we quite liked as well - and one can still recognise the guitar bits somewhere in there. Let's face it, this track just rocks, we'd love to hear it over a loud soundsystem!
This remix could be considered quite conservative as it retains Dinky Toy's feel and style, but it has this cinematic touch which neatly fits the Humanworkshop sound. Especially the string arrangements that Jimi added are really very nice indeed. All in all a lovely tune to listen to..
And not only have we got contributions from external sources, our very own Daan Hendriks (a.k.a. BASIC!) also joined in with a very unexpected contribution as his new alias Mr. Answer!
Snappy, to the point and building up relentlessly - a tightly controlled, compact electro/dance take on the original material.
We will approach the winners over email to for shipping information regarding the HWS goodies package.
We've also selected one runner up, who will not be included in the downloadbable EP, but whose track we thought had an interesting interpretation on the material and deserve attention:
It appears he was the only one to recognise the jazz evergreen in the source material:)
