Australian-Japanese electronic sibling duo Lastlings are on a hot streak with club-ready remixes this summer, today unleashing another rework of their latest single “No Time,” from rising British producer Will Easton. The original launched in June with an accompanying Anime-style music video inspired by their favorite Japanese creators including Kazuo Ishiguro’s dystopian science fiction novel Never Let Me Go and Satoshi Kon’s thriller Perfect Blue. Following a mesmerizing remix from label bosses RÜFÜS DU SOL, Easton puts his second-to-none production skills to work on Lastlings’ brooding melodies with a provocative bassline, turning “No Time” into an eight-minute dancefloor weapon.
“We have been following Will Easton since his 18 Month Free Trial EP,” Lastlings said on the remix, “and were thrilled when he came on board to remix ‘No Time.’ Will has a unique approach to creating productions that are melodically emotive with sound design that hits with an impact, and his ‘No Time’ remix does just that.”
Since finding an early home on RÜFÜS DU SOL’s Rose Avenue, Lastlings have ascended from Australia to the world. Attracting fans in every corner of the electronic music landscape, they quickly earned a spot on Astralwerks roster and released countless major singles along with official reworks of their own. Most recently, they put their spin on “Together” from Grammy-nominated producer and mixing engineer Cassian, who’s played an integral role in shaping their sound. Prior to that, Lastlings have commissioned remixes from influential tastemakers like RÜFÜS DU SOL, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and Torren Foot. So the duo is in good company, to say the least.
Last week, Lastlings unveiled an acoustic performance version of “No Time,” featuring Amy’s flawless vocals echoing against Josh’s polished guitar chords. Listen to the Will Easton remix below.
