Talk about a motley crew of living legends—Carl Cox, deadmau5, and The Neptunes, all on one title.
Earlier this year, The Neptunes and deadmau5’s unlikely pairing on “Pomegrante” set the tone for the summer season, and the rollout for deadmau5’s forthcoming LP with a funky crossover groove with an equally tasty visual feature to boot. Now, the collaboration is getting a marquee remix from none other than Carl Cox, adding just a little extra star power to the mix for good measure.
In true Cox fashion, the venerated selector gives his subject a thumping club-ready twist, modifying the original’s vocoded nu-funk framework with a more floor-leaning appeal. Injecting his own distinguished tech-house stylings on his rendition of “Pomegranate,” Carl Cox breathes new life into the track—and this could just be the tip of the iceberg on an outstanding remix package to follow. Listen below.
