news / Alex Smoke remixes David Douglas “Lucine”

Lucine” is the brand new single from Dutch producer/artist/video director David Douglas. Following the release of his critically acclaimed debut ‘Moon Observations,’ “Lucine” is a journey through sun-kissed disco and gentle electronic pop, subtly playing with psychedelic and experimental elements and weaving organic textures alongside more robotic landscapes.

Douglas has recruited Scottish producer Alex Smoke to remix “Lucine”; and in true Smoke fashion, the single is twisted and warped into a pensive piece of electronic bliss. The remix also allowed Smoke to step away from his usual fodder, as he explains:

“Was a nice one to work on as I could approach it more like a pop record with lots of melody and putting the vocals centre-stage. The percussion parts had a lot of space to them which meant I could use more of them than I usually would. As usual I layered a lot of parts after processing in various ways, added strings for a wee dose of sadness and a bassline to move the feet.”

David Douglas – Lucine (Alex Smoke Remix) is available now – premiered at XLR8R.
