Last year Los Angeles producer David Starfire released his Ascend EP to massive critical acclaim. The release took its listeners through a diverse range of psychedelic, bassed-out landscapes, journeying into the very essence of the genre’s more complex side. When such an album hits the light of day it’s no surprise that many other greatly talented artists would want to try their own hand at reassembling the tracks into new, unique structures. Now we have the product of such a phenomenon. David Starfire has enlisted an eclectic group of artists to lend their own sound to the the EP’s tracks, collecting them and putting them forth to us in the form of his new Ascend Remixes EP. The release features plenty of Funkadelphia frequent flyers, such as Paul Basic and Govinda, among others, including a few that might just be delightful new discoveries for some of you. Each remix features a heavy hand of instrumental sampling and even the occasional live instrumentation, reverberating through waves of mellow enchantment that still manage to showcase plenty of intriguing glitch and bass elements. You can stream the full remix album below and grab it through David Starfire’s bandcamp; plus be sure to grab the Kalya Scintilla remix, which is up as a FREE download!
