Daft Punk, Avicii feat Negrin “Derezzed 2014″ (Chris Cox Club Remix) VIDEO.
I have driven between Los Angeles and Las Vegas for years and know the drive inside and out. The view has certainly gotten boring over the years, so I always appreciate seeing something different from time to time. I have found a country store in the desert town of Baker, CA that has a MASSIVE selection of vintage and bizarre bottles sodas. I saw this gem yesterday, but don’t have the stomach to try it (especially before a long drive!). I did, however pick up 2 cases of assorted oddities and will post more as they get unpacked. – Chris
GRAMMY®-nominated producer/award-winning remixer Chris Cox has produced an official remix for Daft Punk and Avicii!
The song is: Daft Punk feat. Negin, Derezzed (So Amazing) 2014 (Remixed by Avicii and Chris Cox), and it is a “remix of a remix” according to Cox. His remixed version of “Derezzed” just raced up to #34* (with a bullet) in a mere two (2) weeks on Billboard Magazine’s “Dance Club Songs” chart.
Daft Punk’s “Derezzed” (So Amazing Mix) [Remixed by Avicii featuring Negin] is included on Walt Disney Records’ EDM compilation DConstructed. The new release features tracks from Disney movies “re-imagined” by some of the biggest superstars in EDM including Axwell, Armin Van Buuren, Kaskade and many others. The original version of “Derezzed” is from the movie TRON: Legacy. Cox has worked with Disney on a number of projects and was commissioned by them to work his magic on a new remix.
“The track’s origin may seem a little confusing, “ said Cox of “Derezzed”, “but basically it’s this: Avicii remixed the original song by Daft Punk in 2010 and later added a new vocal, and I remixed Avicii’s remix…so I guess what I’ve really done is a remix of a remix. Regardless of the song’s DNA, I’m happy to be involved with such talented artists and I’m really proud of the way this came out.”
A globetrotting DJ with residencies around the world, Cox is also a chart-topping artist and producer in his own right. He’s had 45 #1’s as a producer/remixer (and 5 #1’s as an artist) on Billboard Magazine’s dance music charts.
Cox has summer tour dates slated for Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Chicago, Cleveland and Atlanta along with Madrid, Spain; Prague (Czech Republic) and Toronto, Canada.
Chris Cox is no stranger to worldwide travel, and this weekend is sure to test his limits. He is playing Sao Paulo, Brazil and Miami, FL, USA on the SAME DAY on Saturday April 19, 2014.
The Sao Paulo party at Grand Metropole (and presented by The Week) is dated Friday, April 18, but Chris will not hit the stage until 2:30am on Saturday morning. He will then DJ until about 6am and then make an immediate dash for the airport to make a morning flight to Miami. Upon landing in Miami he will make a swift sound check, change clothes at the hotel, and hit the stage at 11pm for a 5 hour set! Sunday morning will see him take an early flight back to the West Coast to spend some of Easter with his family. Sleep should be well deserved by Sunday night!
Anyone who knows Chris knows that his favorite club to play for years was the legendary NATION in Washington, DC. The home to the VelvetNation and Buzz weekly parties, this amazing venue was a room where magic happened. The sound, lights, space, and people were the perfect mix, and Chris’ legendary sets there would often eclipse the 8 hour mark.
The team behind Nation currently owns Town Danceboutique in Washington, DC, a place Chris has made his DC home since it opened. This Saturday (03-15-14) will be a VelvetNation Reunion party where Chris will take you back to the “Anthem Generation” years from the late 90′s into the 2000′s. Classic big room tracks, many of which were premiered at VelvetNation will be played all night long! A special live appearance by SK8 performing her hit “Nation,” which was written before the closing of this legendary venue.
Prepare for an audio journey that you do not want to miss!
Curently at #40* “Born To Love You” is an amazing song by Canadian singer-songwriter Clara LoFaro. Chris fell in love with the original and wanted to create a glorious journey with his remix.
Jade Starling (the ultra-sexy songstress from Pretty Poison) has teamed up with Lee Dagger (of the UK group Bimbo Jones) on “Insomniak.” It is the #2 Breakout on the Billboard Club Play Chart and a video has been cut to Chris’ remix.
Currently at #20 is Brooklyn Haley with “Close To Where You Are.” This one has a monster riff and Chris has been playing it in all of his live shows.
