Australian pop duo President Street has released the Redondo Remix of their latest single, ‘Time Is Up’.
The original mix was released to rave reviews, with critics praising the use of celebratory instrumentation and melody in its quest to create jubilant music inspired by the global upheaval brought by 2020.
Speaking of the song, President Street said that “We want it to be defiant but also have a sense of joy and hope about it.” This is something reflected in the celebratory carnival-esque nature of the song’s production, Ruby’s uplifting vocal line, and the defiance found in the lyrics themselves.
“Watching the news we were struck by the diversity of people coming together peacefully and so we wanted it to feel like a celebration of people of all colours, age, religions and gender coming together to say that we’ve all had enough, and the time for change is now.”
Driven by the piano-house beats of the techno music scene, the remix injects life into an already lively song, ensuring that the protests of 2020 will be remembered with joy and determination rather than despair.
The Redondo remix is out now, with the music video for the track set to drop soon. Meanwhile, follow @president_street on Instagram to stay updated.
