2smile Presents ‘Tribute To Frikkyo – The Remixes’ On Their Ondawey Music Imprint

The French DJ and production duo 2smile returns with a remix package of their chart topping release “Tribute To Frikkyo”.

The original mix pays homage to the late DJDa Frikkyo,’ who was an influential figure in the Italian hard techno scene. The mix seamlessly blends exhilarating guitars and rich basslines with poignant sampled vocals from the legendary Fela Kuti which amplifies the vibe.

The Ondawey Music bosses revisit this stand out single with 2 fantastic new remixes featuring Alex Fixman and a defined Afro Rework from the label heads themselves.

Combining the hypnotic groove of the original, featuring a sub heavy bass and a chest pounding kick drum, Alex Fixman takes ‘Tribute To Frikkyo’ to a slightly darker territory with this Techno inspired, breakbeat infused reimagining that’s assured to hit heavy on the dancefloors across the world.

Following in suit, 2smile showcase their inimitable production prowess with a striking Afro Rework of their original production. With its rhythmic beefy drum patterns paired with experimental guitar riffs that evolve throughout the piece, the Ondawey Music heads present an approach that is more direct than the original and leaves room for further experimentation with well-timed effects and overall groove.
