Listen to the music
With no less than ten releases distributed by PYST this week, we’re certainly no short of options in tracks to feature in this week’s column.
Among those released was Droja’s ’90s-tinged remix of fellow Welsh artist, Dead Method.
Dead Method has teamed up with Droja on a remix of his brand-new single ‘Faith In Judas’, an electro-pop anthem that deals with betrayal and the end of a friendship.
Droja has amplified the tempo of the original and infused it with a sinuous ’90s house groove, resulting in a dancefloor-ready track that seamlessly blends the iconic 808 and 909 drum machines with funky electric piano and swelling strings.
“I had a lot of fun making this remix, I’m a big fan of Dead Method’s artistry,” says Droja. “I wanted to take the defiance of the original vocal and create something club-ready. No better way to end a toxic friendship than being able to dance away the pain.”
After the success of their Welsh Music Prize-nominated album ‘Future Femme’ in 2022, Dead Method is ready to kick off a new era of art and music.
Produced by Edward Russell, this upbeat friendship breakup anthem with scathing lyrics and catchy melodies solidifies Dead Method as one of Wales’ most exciting new pop stars.
‘Faith In Judas’ is Droja’s second remix of 2023. In January, he remixed HULLAH’s ‘Wild as the Wind’, taking the original track to dizzying new heights.
The latter half of 2023 sees further collaborations for Droja as both a remixer and a producer, with additional solo work to be announced in the coming months.
Droja’s remix of Dead Method’s ‘Faith In Judas‘ is out now on Future Femme Records.
