Premiere: Lex & Wood – Defunct (Illyus & Barrientos Defunkt Remix) (Armada Subjekt)

Canada is not only known for electronic music producers such as Tiga, Deadmau5 and DJ Sneak (who lives there now), but also for a duo Lex & Wood from Montreal. Their distinct blend of deep and tech house has landed them releases on Armada Subjekt, Eton Messy and DJ SKT’s newly founded Stashed Music. The duo is unstoppable right now and they’re following up a string of top quality summer releases as they make a return to their Amsterdam home Armada Subjekt, a new House pillar of Armada Music.

Today’s premiere is Illyus & Barrientos remix of the title track “Defunct”. This international pair from Glasgow (Barrientos has Chilean parents and was born in America, while Illyus grew up in Frankfurt after being born in Govan) have cemented their status by releasing with DFTD, Suara, Toolroom, Exploited Records and Glasgow Underground. While the original mix of “Defunct” is a heavier Tech-House with a moving bass line, Illyus & Barrientos’ gave it a more transparent and housier twist.
