Remixed Vol. 1 Out Now!

The Young Punx, a collective of musical miscreants, led by maverick multi-instrumentalist Hal Ritson, have been steadily building a name for themselves over the past couple of years. With remixes for the likes of Autocrats and Mighty Dubcats under their belt, 2010 will see the release of their new album ‘Mashpop & Punkstep’, but ahead of that they’ve pulled together a tasty little Remix EP to whet the appetite…

Heading the EP is Black Noise’s electro crack house take on ‘Ready For The Fight’, which sees the south coast trio throw a heap of Mr Oizo-esque sub bass and beats at the already heavy Count Bass D collaboration. Scene veteran Shinichi Osawa steps up to the plate next turning the guitar driven ‘Rockstar (Understand)’ into a bleep-laden vehicle, destined for the dancefloor.

House man of the moment Riva Starr gives ‘Juice & Gin’ a techy makeover in his own inimitable style, plundering the best synths to create another messy dancefloor affair. Rounding things up is a double hitter of re-workings of ‘MashitUp’ the single released earlier this year to DJ and dancefloor acclaim. Kam Denny takes the electro-pop of the original, adds a tougher edge and builds to a climax which will leave you in no doubt as to how he’s cemented his position as one of Australia’s finest producers and remixers. Fellow Ozzie and young upstart Junior Black completes the set with a vocal-introed mash-up (for want of a better word) punctuated with synths and beeps in all the right places.

With their second longplayer due for imminent release and a double a-side single package coming soon, The Young Punx are now making moves up the ladder and are sure to be coming to a radio station, dancefloor or live venue near you soon…
