Dubfire recently wrapped up what's tipped to be one of the biggest progressive remixes of the year - a 13-minute rerub of Nic Fanciulli's 'Lucky Heather'. The original was big this summer with DJs such as Laurent Garnier and Hernan Cattaneo but the new mix could mean it grows legs well into the new year. The remix, due out on December 11, 2006 on Renaissance Digital, has already got the big thumbs up from its original producer. Fanciulli told RA:
"Dubfire was going to deliver two mixes in two different styles but he ended up with a thirteen and a half minute mix that is the two mixes sort of fused into one. The first seven minutes is just a barrage of drum rolls and noises with a really clever tech house groove, and the last five or six go into a deep house vibe. The remix is really, really clever and well thought out."
Dubfire will also put out a remix of Robbie Rivera's 'Float Away' next month on You Records. In March he releases his first solo single, a cover of Love And Rocket's ' Feel Speed' on his new label Science + Technology with his Global Underground mix 'Taipei' to follow in April.
