The latest offering on Newclear Music is a long-anticipated collection of remixes of “The Last Sunrise”, a signature tune fromÂ nsu, in collaboration with Squeezer.
Opening the curtains is the long-time favourite from nsu‘s live set, the Immortal Mix – a fusion of dubstep rhythms, uplifting strings, and live electronica vibes.Â Next up is a newcomer to the Newclear team, Virus from Novi Sad in Serbia, whose remix blends funky breakbeats with a sliced-up melody from the original.Â Nort is on deck again, and locks an infectious groove with the original theme, for a driving tech number that is set to move all dance-floors under the sky.Â Newclear favourites Soul Science return yet again, this time with a lush, deep liquid cut, with only traces of the original present.Â Taking the EP into a distant dimension is Stray Theories, who uses original elements to reconstruct an ethereal ambient experience.Â And finally, closing out the remix EP is Squeezer‘s latest energetic re-interpretation of the tune that has been evolving through stages since 2001.

Remixers for Roadkill’s EP Confirmed
One of the upcoming releases on Newclear Music will be the “Meatgrinder” remix EP by Roadkill. Alongside the original version, which can be heard here, the EP will include remixes by the following artists:
The latest release on Newclear Music is also the first official release by Aucklandâ€™s Squeezer â€“ a 5-trackÂ multi-genre remix EP of their 2008 chill-out number â€œPure Juiceâ€, written and performed by Karl Howe andÂ David Czepanski.
First up is Squeezerâ€™s own TSV Mix, a pumping, uplifting rework of the original. It is followed-up byÂ newcomer Will Marshall, and his extension of the downbeat/chill-out theme, with a hint of breaks. Next onÂ the line up is Dunedin man Haszari, whose remix simply had to be pigeon-holed and it was decided that itÂ was none other than â€œback room summer jandal acid discoâ€. Then, Soul Science return again for NewclearÂ and head straight for a dancefloor assault with a slamming drum & bass cut. Finally, nsu dives intoÂ experimental territory and delivers a dark mix infused with elements of ambient, dubstep, garage and jungle.
The original version of â€œPure Juiceâ€, which is not on this release, can be heard here.

nsu Live @ Zen, May '10
Highlights from “10 @ Zen”

New Material / Upcoming Releases
“Neutron Star MMX”, a techy 2010 treatment of the original is the first of several nsu works to be released through Cartoon Beats. Full details of the so-called “Deep Space” EP will be announced in the next update.
The nsu remix for Squeezer‘s “Pure Juice” has been in the works since the middle of 2009, and has gone through several transitions in the live set during that time. The final mix combines subtle elements of chill out, jungle, dubstep and big-beat, and is tentatively scheduled to be released later in 2010 on newclear music, along with mixes from another 2 artists. More announcements soon.
