We’re just a hair shy of a year since Milk & Sugar came barging in with “Ready or Not,” the string- and horn-driven anthem that saw the veteran German house duo clinging to their roots. The track has since racked up a ton of mileage, with a new set of versions coming in hot for some summertime rotation. In addition to the updated 2016 main and club mixes the M&S gents will be pouring out next week, they’ve turned to Rene Amesz and Redondo to squeeze out two separate takes from both parties involved.
Dutch duo Redondo put their shimmery house tendencies to work, untangling the vocal and lead from the original and spreading them out thinly atop a convoluted matrix of shuffling drum sequences and skittering synth patterns. The bounce and amped-up atmosphere they lay down adds an entirely new angle to the offering, as any respectable remix should, and we’ve got all kinds of respect for what Redondo has done here.
