Watch: The Presets - Goodbye Future

The Presets 'Goodbye Future' is realised by Australian filmmaker Prad Senanayake, who recreates the chaotic history of mankind on the dancefloor. Lots of mixed colours, moody shadows, slow motion and strobe lights allows the viewer to taste short moments of chaos, across an intense and confronting trip. Prad shares: "There has been a lot of dark things happening in Australia and around the world recently, which became the inspiration behind (this)".

The video precedes this Friday's remix bundle release, a package with seven cutting edge reworkings of the original, including mixes from The Aston Shuffle, wordlife and Ilan Bluestone.

The Presets latest belter 'Goodbye Future' gets the royal remix treatment on March 7. Seven ambitious reworkings of the track bundled together with the original, highlighting the banging single's versatility. Bursting at the seams, the package will be available to purchase via all good online outlets.

Next cab off the ranks is homegrown heroes The Aston Shuffle, who pull it apart and elevate the strings and piano keys even higher. Fever peaks and one hell of an emotional breakdown.

Listen: The Presets - Goodbye Future (wordlife Remix)

Club Mod stars wordlife hover the wand over The Presets' latest single 'Goodbye Future'. Premiering on Dancing Astronaut over the weekend, the EDM bible observed that their efforts "transform the progressive sensibilities of the original into a bouncy and stutter-filled indie dance gem. A gripping deep bass line and a tasteful approach to the entire process, the remix honors the original's melancholic energy with a guttural synthetic undercoat designed with dirty dancefloors in mind."

Experience the super class sound for yourself...

The remix is part of an upcoming package set for release next month, also including reworkings by The Aston Shuffle, Ilan Bluestone and an extended club edit by The Presets themselves. wordlife join Beni as support for their Groovin' the Moo sideshows. Tour details below.

  The Presets

The Presets

The duo met as tearaway students at Sydney's Conservatorium of Music: by day they were battling Beethoven, by night sweating it out in seedy clubs to the strains of New Order, Bjork and The Smiths. They're now one of the most talked about and in-demand live acts today, with a catalogue of dance smashes, adored LPs - Beams, Apocalypso & Pacifica - and ARIA's aplenty, there's obviously a method to the Presets' madness.
