Hailing from Coventry, England arrives garage electronic expert Holy Goof to kick off the adrenaline spiked lineup. Opening with a heart-pounding pace, the producer lightly plays with a skipping beat beneath the track, before exploding into a hard-hitting house sequence, and signing off with a personal touch of bass-driven exuberance. Stepping in is Czech Republic Rido, whose blissful mix soon drops into an alluring exhibition of complex house sounds interjected by chill out moments for a catch of breath.

As premiered via Life Without Andy, Canberra native blanke follows by spinning an ear-catching staggered beat before taking control of offerings from the track with jaw-dropping force and stomping basslines. Curating a fitting finish to the formidable lineup is Seattle-based dubstep king MUST DIE!, dropping an explosive mix bursting with classic heart-pounding bass. A haunting opening to the remix soon dives into outrageous territory complete with the producer’s signature low end sounds to wrap the energetic collection.

The remix EP celebrates Carmada’s triumphant original track “Ready For It” feat. tribes., a four minute release perfectly marrying the enchanting vocal prowess of tribes., with Carmody and Armata’s signature twisting bass hits and fiery production. The undeniable dance hit now boasts over one million streams following a triple j Good Nights premiere.

The remix package arrives amid raving responses to the debut of the duo’s new live show, Carmada by LDRU and Yahtzel at Splendour in the Grass last month.
