The Bloody Beetroots ft. Paul McCartney and Youth – Out of Sight (Riva Starr Raw Dub)
The pairing of The Bloody Beetroots and Paul McCartney left some excited for an eccentric outing, and others pondering its abnormality. The end result highlighted both act’s strengths, fostering a pop-friendly release on all fronts. The track placed in Riva Starr’s hands, nevertheless, gets an entirely new facade; diving into the unexpected deeper and darker realms of progressive and minimal house. Most have come to expect bouncy tech house from Riva Starr, but this rework sees a throbbing bass line, using weird chord sequences to make an entirely new track of its own. Borrowing marginally from the original, Riva Starr strips down the track’s core elements and demonstrates what a proper remix ought to be.
