Editors’ Notes

With four different reworkings of “Promises” from their third album Pacifica, The Presets turn one song into four. Parisian producer Lifelike (Laurent Ash) opens with a remix that starts on an awesomely layered drum flourish that tapers out into a heavy four-on-the floor beat as a 1980s flavored bass synthesizer serves up the foundation for a dance floor groove. But its when those phased synthesizers come in and sparkle like a lost New Order gem that the song really takes shape. Los Angeles (by way of Sydney, Australia) producer Felix Bloxsom (A.K.A. Plastic Plates) keeps closer to the tune’s original electro-pop leanings, replete with period-correct tones to create a five-and-a-half minute remix that sounds like something you could only buy on 12-inch vinyl back in 1986. Finnish house producer Luomo (Sasu Ripatti) filters “Promises” through microhouse, a subgenre wherein the percussion is forged from minimalist click sounds rubbing against the grain of deep dub-flavored bass lines. A beautiful mix inspired by the classical piano of Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky closes the EP thanks to Berlin producer Nils Frahm.

Julian Hamilton (production, keyboards, vocals) and Kimberley Moyes (production, drums, programming) met in the early '90s as students at Sydney's Conservatorium of Music. Both were there to study classical music, but as they delved into the great composers, neither could forget an extracurricular...
