Suges ~ We Belong To The Night (Cee ElAssaad Voodoo Remix) charted 18 times!

The cats at Italy’s Double Cheese Records approached me about four months ago about doing a remix album of one of my biggest records of all time, We Belong To The Night. It’s been a long time since I thought about that track, let alone heard it, so I of course said, “Sure!”

It’s out now, and as you can see here, Cee ElAssaad‘s remix is levelling the charts. The track remains to this day the only “spoken word” song I’ve ever made, and I’m glad to see the words still resonate so strongly with people…and that producers are still interested in revisiting it!

ZuluMafia f/ Tantra Zawadi & Dana Byrd ~ Healing Magic (Suges Remix)

Charted by Traxsource officially in both their Essential Afro and Hype Chart, this analog-synth-heavy remix is available on Traxsource and Apple Music.

Designed to be “hypnotic” in a good way (in order to provide you with healing magic!), the effect was achieved by using a Moog Minitaur to do the bassline…crucially, it was purposely kept a little sharp to unsettle you a little bit. Rest of synth work was provided by a Moog Little Phatty and a DSI Mopho x4.

For this remix I couldn’t work in Dana’s vocals…they’re really good, I just had already gone too deep on my “trance-inducing” concept. Instead I hummed the main melody myself.

You may notice that this YouTube video has some of Tantra’s words missing…it’s my new technique to stop DJs from ripping my songs off YouTube! Haha.

The Soul Motivators ~ Until The Sun Goes Down (Suges Chillwave Remix)

Chillwave Is Dead, So Here’s Some Chillwave

Now that everyone seems to be in agreement that chillwave is dead, turns out I actually made a trilogy of chillwave remixes. I found out about the scene really, really late (because I eat, breathe, and shit house music) and decided to try my hand at it…and by the time I got it right? The scene was over. Seems the gods want me to stick with house. Anyways, here’s the first of the three I did. I blame the death of chillwave on its ridiculous genre name. I always liked “underwater” better.

Meropa Park ~ Live A Lil' (Suges Remix)

Definitely my biggest remix in a long time…charted 19 times when it came out! Say what now? Funkateers will notice this is the first time I successfully slipped in a funk synth melody line into a house track. (Tried many times before but no one was diggin’ it.)

I didn’t even realize this: I guess when I submitted it, it was so hot Lars Behrenroth (Deeper Shades label boss) didn’t put anything else on the single. Not even the original! Hahah. Hopefully the original did come out at some point because it was pretty bangin’ too.

Anyway: pick it up at Traxsource or Apple Music.

Konkrete Jungle (Suges & Martino 2013 Definitive Remix)

One of my favourites: we used the toughest of all synthesis methods–FM synthesis–and programmed all these sounds from scratch, and then used them to put together this remix. Nothing but FM son!

This is the 2013 remake we made for JakDat Records. Gave us a chance to clean up the recordings, lay down a new beat, re-EQ a bit, and extend it. We laid down the vocals we always wanted to do, but couldn’t sing well enough (now there’s autotune!). Plus some piano at the end, so you know that yes, the riff IS good on its own, not just a harmonic trick. Ha.

Charted three times on Traxsource, hitting the Essential Soulful Miami Edition and Weekly Hype Chart Miami Edition, you can still grab this on Traxsource and Apple Music.
