Oliver – Mechanical Remixes Feat. Dillon Francis, Tchami & More
We already said how Oliver is winning 2013 back when we interviewed them in April. Fast forward six months and that statement is truer than ever, as they’ve toured extensively with acts like Zedd and Dillon Francis, headlined a stage at the epic Hard Summer and now presents us with a remix package of their massive Mechanical EP.

While the original EP was quite diverse in respects to styles and tempo, it had a notable, funky-smooth underlying tone that tied it all together. Oliver pretty much squashed that mindset when they had Dillon Francis, Nom De Strip, Tchami and Values remix it.
Dillon may be finally coming back to making moombhton style beats with his remix of “Night Is On My Mind,” as it takes the original’s tempo but adds beefing kicks and trippy synth stabs. Nom De Strip bangs out “Control” into another dimension while keeping the verse pretty similar in the middle, as to keep people guessing as to which version they’re listening to.
Tchami’s remix of “MYB” is, well, as Tchami as it gets, and by that I mean you’ll just have to hear it for yourself. It’s far from the original, weird, crazy and catches you by surprise, first with the breakdown and then with the chorus. Values takes the broken-beated “Mechanical” and gives it a four-to-the-floor treatment, making it primed for dance floors and stages alike.
