rkss shares DJ Tools Illegal Material

A collection of free remixes of Daft Punk, Alice Deejay, Vengaboys and Underworld are doing the rounds

A mediafire link of free DJ Tools remixes has been made available. The project is an offshoot of rkss aka Robin Buckley's DJ Tools release on UIQ earlier this year. The artist explains: “Over the last year, as I’ve been performing DJ Tools, I started using these different remixes and edits of familiar dance tracks together with my own original music. For various reasons these remixes aren’t ones I could effectively sample for the original release on UIQ or distribute on platforms like SoundCloud or Spotify or whatever, so someone has leaked them on this nifty website as a free mixtape.”

Buckley continues: “For use with DJ Tools on UIQ or simply enjoyed on their own.”

Tracks remixed are Vengaboys “Up & Down”, The Ones “Flawless (Phunk Investigation Vocal Mix)”, Stardust “Music Sounds Better With You (12" Club Mix)”, Swedish House Mafia featuring Pharrell “One (Your Name) (Vocal Mix)”, Fedde Le Grand “Put Your Hands Up For Detroit”, Alice Deejay “Better Off Alone”, DJ Sammy & Yanou featuring Do “Heaven”, Daft Punk “One More Time”, and Underworld “Born Slippy (Nuxx)”.
