Rounding off a career debut year which makes meteors look lazy, Chicago’s Azzecca remixes one of summer’s monster tracks, Rex The Dog’s ‘Change this Pain for Ecstasy’, out December 8th on Kompakt.
Azzecca’s first outing on the revered German imprint is one more step up for the fiery charismatic DJ/producer, following the recent big success of ‘U Fool/Tell That Boy’ (Higher Ground) which also bagged her a Danny Mini Mix, Pete Tong Mix, Arielle’s Big Whopper, Jack Saunders Next Wave and significant press and radio support worldwide. Her back catalogue also includes releases on Adam Ten’s Maccabi House, REALM Records, and remixing TIBASKO on Another Rhythm, since her debut single only last Autumn, and the now 7mil+ streamed ‘Other Side’ on Higher Ground which fully put her on the map last year.
‘Change This Pain’ (Azzecca remix) has a hard act to follow in the original, Pete Tong’s Essential New Tune in May and a summer anthem with some 90s DNA. Azzecca has brought her own very different dark energy to the ‘absolutely perfect track’ with a more ‘stripped back techno vibe’ which is already shaping to be a winter monster in its own right. A rampaging, thundering beat, harsh dystopian discords and sirens – the remix still showcases the raunchy female vocal but riffs on the title lines, ending an extended breakdown with an epic drop just to take ravers over any edge that’s left.

“Change This Pain” Azzecca Remix is out now!
