Premiere: Tommie Sunshine and On Deck lay thumping house spin on John Roberts’ ‘Freaks’
Venerated dance producer Tommie Sunshine always seems to have a good remix up his sleeve, his latest coming by way of a team up with On Deck working on John Roberts’ club-ready 2020 track, “Freaks.” The original work, produced by Junior Sanchez, is a misty, oscillating house cut with a solid vocal backbone, that gets flipped into a hypnotic setlist weapon. Sunshine and On Deck’s remix chops the original’s vocals into sputtering melodic accents, making for a high-octane remix that’s equally suited for a packed dancefloor as it is a sweaty spin studio. Turning up the energy by more than just a notch, the pair of producers lay a swinging, vintage electro-house spin on Roberts’ “Freaks,” baking in steep builds and percussive breaks to polish off the modifications on the track.
Tommie Sunshine and On Deck’s new remix leads a pack of unique spins on “Freaks” including new takes from Ant LaRock and Harry Romero on the way. Listen to Tommie Sunshine and On Deck’s new “Freaks” remix below, out now via John Roberts’ imprint, X-Bop.
