Around the time "The Luv Bug" was finished, we started sending out the acapellas to friends and musical family around the globe. The song that got the most attention - and thus remixes - by far was "Familiar Stranger". So before we drop the proper remix album for "The Luv Bug", here are the very varied results:

Cid Rim (LuckyMe/Affine) kicks it off with epic synth chords before Urbs (G-Stone) evokes 'familiar' emotions and Mono:Massive (Duzz Down San) jazzes it up. Then The Weedgeterian, Roman Rauch's (Philpot/EndlessFlight) green-eyed alter-ego, takes us to the slo-mo disco followed by Max Fisher (Dusty Crates), who gives the song a slighty menacing edge and PDF (another Duzz Down San labelmate) who comes correct with a heavily syncopated Soul stomper. Closing this selection of dope Austrian producers is Arkiv from the other side of the globe: Melbourne/Australia.

And where, you ask, is the "Familiar Stranger" remix by our man Brenk Sinatra, which graced "The Luv Bug" vinyls as a bonus track? Well, that one (and the Urbs version of "Keep On Loving") will be part of "The Luv Bug Variations" coming out very early next year!
