Behind most remixes, there’s probably an electronic outfit somewhere with no vowels in its all-caps name. The latest to rear their fingers over the synthpads are GRVRBBRS, also known as Graverobbers. Despite their somewhat morbid moniker, the Brooklyn-based production duo specializes in bouncy disco-tech reminiscent of the Jackson 5 or Earth, Wind, and Fire. Recently, GRVRBBRS applied their production talents to Active Child‘s track “Hanging On”, the lead single off the choral R&B project’s 2011 LP, You Are All I See. They lighten the original beat with cheap synthesizers befitting a Miami Vice episode before bumping a throwdown of a chorus that eerily resembles Kavinsky’s “Nightcall”. Check it out below.

To go along with the new remix, Active Child is reissuing his 2010 EP Curtis Lane on 10-inch vinyl, which was previously out of print. Also, he kicks off his newest U.S. tour in La Jolla, California later tonight. Find the full docket below.
