This summer, electro-pop producer and synthmonger André Obin released his debut LP, The Arsonist. Obin is now working on his sophomore album, slated for release in early 2014. In the meantime, a slew of esteemed producers have taken it upon themselves to rework Obin's lush synth-laden tracks. The result is The Arsonist Remixes EP, featuring remixed cuts by Steve Bug, K-X-P, T.H. White, Artisan Loyalist, and Black Asteroid. A standout track is K-X-P's remix of “Anthem,” The Arsonist's chugging closing track. K-X-P adds an even greater sense of propulsion, resulting in a dark and dramatic climax. You can catch André Obin on the east coast in the upcoming months.
