Ladi6 releases three remixes of their single “Guru” from Kiwi producer 10A, renowned US producer Karriem Riggins and Australia’s own Plutonic Lab.
New Zealand’s award winning DJ/Producer, 10A, lends his experimental remix skills for “Guru”. “We’ve been wanting to work with 10A for ages he is a very old friend of ours from East Christchurch and I think this very stripped-back slick vibe remix was so worth the wait with its huge drum-sound combined with futurist style synths. This sound is definitely why we love 10A’s work” says Ladi.
Karriem Riggins remix sees him completely reinterpret the original version as he took the approach of completely doing the opposite to the original and approached the groove with a raw African inspired drum kit and guitar sample. Karriem’s has writing and production credits on albums by artists like Erykah Badu, Madlib, Common, J Dilla, The Roots and Kanye West.
The final remix of “Guru” is by Award winning Australian music producer Plutonic Lab. An ARIA Award nominee and UK Mercury Prize winner with a career spanning well over two decades, Plutonic Lab’s versatile music production has provided deep Electro Funk vibes to his take on the track.
