Tzekin announces ‘Skyline Death Remixes,’ shares a new cut from Sam Rui & Slodown

TZEKIN (aka Sydney-based producer and Eternal Dragonz co-founder Justin Tam) has announced the forthcoming release of Skyline Death Remixes, a continuation of his triumphant debut LP ‘Skyline Death,’ released last year. Where Skyline Death presented a signature palette of experimental Asian trance, R&B and club music featuring an all-Asian vocal team, the remix LP will expand on the themes presented eight months ago, exploring concomitant sounds and directions.

The record features an all-star cast on remix duties, including Sam Rui, et aliae, Sonia Calico, Kelvin T and Ao Wu; Eternal Dragonz collaborators x/o and MANIIK and local Australian friends Strict Face and Tracy Chen. As Tam explains, “They’ve all become close collaborators and friends I’ve met in recent years touring Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan. It’s a personal documenting of each similar scene that’s flourishing there, and I want to share those scenes.”

For now, Tzekin has shared Sam Rui‘s take on ‘Sunset Spot’, a stunning re-imagining of the original track featuring Slodown, the Singaporean “Wong Kar Wai of soul.” The remix has also received the animated MV treatment, with a gorgeous visual courtesy of Carter Duong.

Skyline Death Remixes drops Friday, July 12 via Eternal Dragonz.
