Indonesian dance music trio Weird Genius are back with a remix package for their viral EDM-meets-gamelan hit “LATHI” (ft. Sara Fajira), featuring new versions by R3HAB, RayRay, and Sihk, out now via Astralwerks. The reworks find each producer imagining the award-winning song in a new light, amping up hidden qualities while staying true to the ecstatic drops and chilling vocals that made it a hit to begin with. Listen HERE.
Each of the three remixes are uniquely striking. The Morroccan-Dutch DJ R3HAB’s remix is neon and moody, like a rave in the Blade Runner universe. RayRay’s reimagining is jittery and intense, drawing on industrial techno and drill ‘n’ bass. Sihk’s is full-speed trap-trance, bringing the sort of sweaty ecstasy that seems tailor-made to keep bodies moving. For the uninitiated, Sihk is Indonesia’s biggest and most boisterous DJ, who’s brought his hardstyle approach to mainstream dance through performances across Asia and Europe, and collaborations with NIKI and Ramengvrl. Meanwhile, RayRay is Taiwan’s biggest DJ export, seen on lineups across the globe including Glastonbury, ADE, Tomorrowland, and Sonar.
