GRAMMY®-NOMINATED PRODUCER/REMIXER CHRIS COX REMIXES DAFT PUNK AND AVICII
Los Angeles, Calif., June 4, 2014 -- GRAMMY®-nominated producer/award-winning remixer Chris Cox has produced an official remix for Daft Punk and Avicii.
The song is: Daft Punk feat. Negin, Derezzed (So Amazing) 2014 (Remixed by Avicii and Chris Cox), and it is a “remix of a remix” according to Cox. His remixed version of “Derezzed” just raced up to #34* (with a bullet) in a mere two (2) weeks on Billboard Magazine’s “Dance Club Songs” chart.
Daft Punk’s “Derezzed” (So Amazing Mix) Remixed by Avicii featuring Negin is included on Walt Disney Records’ EDM compilation DConstructed. The new release features tracks from Disney movies “re-imagined” by some of the biggest superstars in EDM including Axwell, Armin Van Buuren, Kaskade and many others. The original version of “Derezzed” is from the movie TRON: Legacy. Cox has worked with Disney on a number of projects and was commissioned by them to work his magic on a new remix.
“The track’s origin may seem a little confusing, “ said Cox of “Derezzed”, “but basically it’s this: Avicii remixed the original song by Daft Punk in 2010 and later added a new vocal, and I remixed Avicii’s remix...so I guess what I’ve really done is a remix of a remix. Regardless of the song’s DNA, I’m happy to be involved with such talented artists and I’m really proud of the way this came out.”
A globetrotting DJ with residencies around the world, Cox is also a chart-topping artist and producer in his own right. He’s had 45 #1’s as a producer/remixer (and 5 #1’s as an artist) on Billboard Magazine’s dance music charts.
Cox has summer tour dates slated for Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Chicago, Cleveland and Atlanta along with Madrid, Spain; Prague (Czech Republic) and Toronto, Canada.
