Download: Dubbel Dutch Hyperwine Refixes

Designed by Rachel Noble

After dropping his edit of Popcaan’s ‘Naughty Girl’, Dubbel Dutch has delivered an entire EP of Hyperwine Refixes. Sprinkling a bit of Caribbean spice over songs by Tinashe, Ellie Goulding, Brandy, and Gyptian as well as Popcaan, Dubbel Dutch has featured some of these remixes and edits in his live sets, but now you can relive all of those halcyon moments, and stream these songs online as the ‘summer on tap’ winds down.

From his interview with The Fader:

This EP is a selection of previously unavailable remixes and edits that I created for mixes, live sets, and just to share with friends. All the tracks are Caribbean influenced and intended to summon uplifting, energetic, and motivational feelings in the listener. “Hyperwine” just felt like a good description overall for that sort of sound. I like to imagine them as warp-speed tools for transporting people to bacchanalian ecstasy. Hopefully, they’ll also help some ravers cure their post-labor day carnival comedown.
