Today I present you with a remix of Kavinsky’s Nightcall by one of my favorite remixers, Robotaki. I first discovered Robotaki about 2 years ago when he was doing a lot of remixes of Korean pop songs (and all those remixes are excellent as well). Gradually, as his skills improved, he started expanding to other genres of music and has been steadily gaining more and more recognition. Two remixes he did (of Chilly Gonzales’ You Can Dance and Shinichi Osawa’s Love Will Guide You) actually were selected by the artists and put onto their official remixed albums. Although there’s not much up-to-date info on Robotaki, last I knew he was attending school somewhere in Montreal for music. He’s Korean and he’s only about 20 or 21. This kid has a lot of talent and I love his style. I had a hard time deciding which of his remixes to do.
I listened to the original Nightcall just the other day and it was so different. Robotaki speeds up the tempo about 100% and I think makes the song much more interesting. What I like about Robotaki is the retro, funky sound he has. His remixes are always fun and exciting. He uses fun, light synths and a variety of percussion. In this track, I particularly love the whistles he adds in (I love to whistle). Take a listen below, and be sure to check out his other tracks too! He’s one you’ll definitely not want to miss out on!
