As part of our consultancy with Virgin Records we worked closely with them to select the right remixer for Bastille – Pompeii. The brief was for a big commercial remix that would work across the board for the commercial dance radio shows, mainstream clubs and pop blogs. Luckily we have the master in this area in our own camp at Playlist and so we commissioned our very own Kat Krazy to remix the song.
Kat Krazy has built a solid niche in the industry by taking artists from many different genres and crossing them over into the commercial dance territory whilst still retaining a high level of credibility. His remixes have found a home on Radio 1 Dance Anthems, Ready For The Weekend, Kiss and Capital Weekends and he has even enjoyed spins on Radio 1 daytime from the likes of Fearne Cotton and Scott Mills. The main Pop music blog in the U.K Pop Justice are also big fans of the Kat giving him 3 big song features in the last 12 months! We knew these were exactly the areas that Virgin were looking to hit with the remix.
When we heard the remix for the first time we knew it was something special but even we could not predict just how huge it would become!
- The remix was premiered on Pop Justice as their Big Song of The Day. You can check out the Feature by clicking here
- The remix then made its way onto Radio and received over 30 plays across Radio 1, Kiss and Capital throughout the month of February and scored a Radio 1 daytime play from Scott Mills.
- Following the radio play the mix started to surface on the blogs and 5 key blogs picked up the remix and helped it into the top 20 on Hype Machine.
Here is the remix in all its glory having clocked up over 50,000 plays in the last month on Soundcloud.
