Night Beats' 'Hell In Texas' remixed by Jonah Swilley of Mattiel

New remix from 'Outlaw R&B' single out today, Night Beats UK/EU/US tour-dates also now announced


Night Beats is today sharing a new remix of recent single ‘Hell In Texas’ courtesy of Atlanta-based musician and songwriter Jonah Swilley (Mattiel, Sugar Records). ‘Hell In Texas’ is originally lifted from Night Beats’ highly-praised fifth album, ‘Outlaw R&B’, which was released in June via Fuzz Club. Having just debuted the new ‘Outlaw R&B’ material live for the very first time as part of a Levitation Session that premiered last month, Night Beats have also now announced ‘Outlaw R&B’ 2021 and 2022 tour-dates in the US, UK and Europe (including a run of US dates supporting Zamrock legends W.I.T.C.H.) The ‘Hell In Texas’ remix is available to stream below.


Where the original ‘Hell In Texas’ traded in a shadowy gospel-country sound, the remix ushers in warmer, sunnier days in truly blissed-out fashion. Whilst keeping one foot firmly placed on the original’s desolate, dusty trail, Swilley’s reworking also perfectly brings to life the hidden grooviness of the track. Night Beats’ Danny Lee Blackwell says of the remix: “Jonah Swilley's remix of Hell in Texas encapsulates all the elements I love from country, funk, and R&B. By bringing these elements to light, Swilley found the ingredients buried in this ghostly ballad and turned it into a hypnotic funk perfect for a midsommer's seance."


Made during the height of the California wildfires (where Blackwell currently resides), rioting in the streets and a nation in lockdown, Blackwell describes the raucous technicolour rock’n’roll of ‘Outlaw R&B’ – from which ‘Hell In Texas’ is taken – as a call to rejoice in some sorely needed post-apocalyptic hedonism. On the album’s mission statement, Blackwell said: “Outlaw R&B is music for the borderless, the free, the outcasts and the forgotten. The outlaw is the runner. Those whose minds aren't sold by perfect pitch and clean fingernails. Through this medium you can escape the confines of mental feudalism and bask in the euphoric glow of psychedelic R&B.” Night Beats' upcoming tour-dates in support of the album can found below (tickets available HERE.)
