Whether you’re a DnB fan or not, Netksy’s latest album, 2, was easily one of the top electronic productions of 2012. Those who have heard it will recall “Puppy,” a unique track which deviated from the popular Belgian producer’s usual style, yet was also one of the standouts of the release. Now, the dancefloor title has received a recent vocal update along with a host of remixes that each vary in their treatment of the original and offer something different for listeners, which isn’t always the case when it comes to remix packages. The vocals from fellow Belgian Billie, though simple, are a welcome addition to the album version and do much to enhance the uplifting nature of the song. Label mates Camo & Krooked expectedly deliver a quality DnB remix of the track, ironically transforming the original back into something more in line with Netsky’s signature sound. A French touch comes courtesy of Norwegian duo Lemâitre, adding bouncing disco vibes and a whole new level of danceability. Finally, electro producer Modek brings a more aggressive take with gritty high-energy basslines designed to send large festival crowds into a frenzy. All four of the releases bring something different to the table, and they are all worth a listen. If you like what you hear, you can pick them up on Beatport.
