The Rapture release How Deep Is Your Love? remixes

The Rapture How Deep is your Love?

The Rapture have released the remixes of their How Deep Is Your Love? single which includes a remix, Dub for Mehdi, a reworking by A-Trak. It is a very fitting head nod to A-Trak’s long-time friend, late producer DJ Mehdi, whose recent death came as a huge loss and shock for the dance music community. The Montreal born DJ remembers how the single was influenced by Mehdi before his passing.

“When I was close to finishing [this remix], I played it to my friend, the irreplaceable DJ Mehdi. I was working on the main version of the remix, the vocal version. I knew I would make a few alternate edits during the mixdown. The funny thing was, Mehdi’s favorite part was the ending! He…suggested that I have that part come in earlier. My reaction was: that would work well for the dub version. And sure enough, when I finished mixing it down I made a dub with [his] suggestion. When I sent it to Mehdi shortly after, he responded (as a joke) that I should call it “Dub For Mehdi.” This one’s for you Mehdi.”

The Populette remix takes up the b-side of the single. It is out now through DFA Records and can be purchases in the DFA webstore.
