Australian Synthwave producer Droid Bishop has remixed Tel-Aviv based Electronic artist Gidon Schocken’s recent single. ‘Show Me The Way (Droid Bishop Remix) will be released via Gidon Schocken Music, and premiered on popular Youtube channel New Retro Wave.
Currently based in Los Angeles, Droid Bishop has garnered attention for his unique approach to production. His synth and guitar driven electronic music is inspired by retro sounds and aesthetics, and he boasts a string of successful releases, including his recent album Rebirth of the Machine (2019).
‘Show Me The Way (Droid Bishop Remix)’ pays homage to the original track, but patiently layers in warm and silky elements, expanding the composition with masterful production. The unmistakable 80’s influence gives rise to a sultry synth sound palette, balancing the tactile underlying beat of the original track. Layered with retro tones and new washes of colour ‘Show Me The Way (Droid Bishop Remix)’ is notably packaged in a style that mirrors artists such as Kavinsky, Mitch Murder, and Gunship.
Speaking of the track Droid says: “I’m really happy to be a part of this remix release and can honestly say that this is one of my favorite tracks I’ve put together.”
Schocken goes on to comment: “Droids remake of the track instantly transported me to a neon highway in space, his use of the orchestral elements, sounds and vocals create a lush new dreamy atmosphere. The ability to tell a story through music is magical, and with his rendition I felt like I was taken on a journey through a futuristic tale.”
