The Magician releases Tied Up remixes from offaiah, Kideko and more

Following the release of ‘Tied Up’, Belgian DJ and producer The Magician has announced a remix package for the collaborative track with Julian Perretta. Featuring an edit from offaiah, Kideko and a Balearic dub, the three reworks will be released on the 5th May via Ministry of Sound Records.

Kicking off the package is offaiah’s deep, rumbling rework of the original melodic track. Adding crashing synths and a gripping tempo, the track is given an ominous attitude fit for peak-time sets.

Brighton-based artist Kideko brings his distinguished UK bass sound to ‘Tied Up’, reworking it with a hefty-low end and jacking rhythm. The thundering edit underpins Julian Perretta’s choppy vocal samples.

The Magician then returns to his Balearic roots with a dub version of the track, perfect for sunsets on the beach. Driven by a rolling groove, he turns ‘Tied Up’ into a laidback beat, echoing Julian’s soaring vocals and keeping his signature piano melody.

Released in February, the original version is an emotive piano-led single and has already amassed over 4 million plays on Youtube and Spotify combined. ‘Tied Up’ marks the first release since The Magician signed with B1 Recordings, Ministry Of Sound and Ultra Records for a worldwide deal with Sony Music, further cementing his international success.

The Magician is an artist whose commercial achievements goes hand in hand with years of experience in the underground side of the electronic scene. His first EP, ‘I Don’t Know What To Do’, came out via revered French label Kitsunê, before he went on to find widespread recognition from his remix of Lykke Li’s ‘I Follow Rivers’. This remix now stands at almost 80 million streams on Spotify and reached #1 in five countries and #2 in four. After a number of successful productions via FFRR and Parlophone – including the huge Europe-wide hit with Years & Years, ‘Sunlight’ – he founded the aptly named Potion label and event series on which he released last year’s successful single ‘Shy’.

Aside from his steady production schedule, The Magician has played a diverse range of clubs; Pacha, Space, Ushuaia and Amnesia Ibiza, Coachella, Output New York, The Warehouse Project and Amsterdam’s widely respected, now-defunct Trouw to name a few. With his Potion series, he has brought showcases to Ministry Of Sound, Showcase Paris, Exchange LA, Electric Brixton, New York’s Webster Hall and more.

This year, The Magician has a hectic touring schedule ahead of him with several festival performances including a Potion takeover at Tomrrowland, a tour across America and returning to his Balearic home, Ibiza for several dates at Pacha.

For Lovers of MAD MAX & John Carpenter!

GUNSHIP join forces with LIONFACE to create a MUSIC VIDEO for this exclusive track.

GUNSHIP is a neon soaked, late night, sonic getaway drive, dripping with luscious analogue synthesizers, cinematic vocals and cyberpunk values, exploding from the front cover of a dusty plastic VHS case which has lain forgotten since 1984. Today GUNSHIP release their new “Black Edition” Vinyl. The record features an exclusive track – GUNSHIP’s remix of Lionface’s “No Hope State”. Lionface & GUNSHIP have collaborated with renowned retro video director SILVER STRAIN to create a music video for this exclusive track – also released today.

THE VINYL:
GUNSHIP Presents the ‘Black Edition’ Vinyl. A 12″ Double Gatefold 2x 180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl Featuring Matt Black Sleeve With Neon Pink Metallic Foil. In true GUNSHIP style, the interior artwork – created by renowned cinematic concept artist Florian de Gesincourt, depicts a Mad Max esque truck loaded with relics of nostalgia from the finest cinema the 1980s had to offer.

A few words from GUNSHIP : “The moment we heard the door-kicking-in-intensity of Kat’s voice belting out the incredible melodies and lyrics in this song we knew we had to remix it. “What if John Carpenter wrote an emotional 80’s power ballad?” was our working brief. We used vintage synths and drum machines to evoke a genuine sense of the golden age of cinema – but all credit to Kat – she wrote a real face melter here!”

From the director SILVER STRAIN: 60 TONS OF TURBO-CHARGED STEEL, DEATH AND FURY! “No Hope State is an homage to the numerous Road Warrior rip-offs of the 80s, 2-D animation, Heavy Metal magazine and the cinema of Carpenter, Argento & Leone. An allegorical take on the dismantling of the healthcare system, dressed as a post apocalyptic music video with a fragmented revenge narrative.”

“My biggest influence is and always has been John Carpenter. After Prince of Darkness and They Live, it was announced that Carpenter would direct a movie called Pincushion, featuring a badass female protagonist battling mutants and marauders in her souped-up all-terrain vehicle, while transporting the cure for a deadly plague through the post-apocalyptic wasteland. My teenage mind was reeling with anticipation at seeing a PA flick directed and scored by my favorite filmmaker. Sharon Stone was supposed to be the lead. She was then replaced by Cher, who reportedly had Carpenter fired from the project. It remains unfilmed to this day. While working on No Hope State, Pincushion (or what Pincushion might have been like) was always in the back of my mind.”

A few words from LIONFACE (Kat Marsh): “No Hope State was the first ballad I’d written for my Lionface project and it’s a love song to the National Health Service. It’s also a rallying cry against it’s destruction. I think a lot of people are angry about the sneaky privatisation and the extreme cuts to services in recent years. It’s such a precious thing, we’re so lucky to have it and it needs to be protected.”

Kat on the Gunship version: “My connection with Gunship actually started with Martin Grech. We were working at the same studio and he ended up recording guitars on my ‘Battle’ EP. He spoke about his involvement on the Gunship album and how great they were and introduced us. They ended up creating much more than a remix, it’s a full on re-imagining of the song. It’s become the definitive version for me!”
