Filthy Lucre is back with another remix of the 1991 classic “Treaty” by Yothu Yindi. Their original remix back in 1991 won an Aria Award for best single of the year in 1992 and became a dance sensation in Australia and around the world. Now Razor Recordings Owner Gavin Campbell is getting the band back together with Robert Goodge and Paul Main, while adding Nick Coleman (Faces Of Meth) to remix the record again. Carl Cox is also remixing the record.

With the remixes coming on Friday, we are happy to present the updated “featherfoot” remix from Filthy Lucre today. It keeps much of the original spirit and feel of the original, but adds a sense of urgency and purpose that fits the modern dancefloor. The producers put more emphasis on the drums and shaking percussion. It builds and builds like the vocal chants that are prevalent throughout the song. “Treaty” creates an atmosphere that is both hypnotic and very danceable that works in the modern electronic era that is leaning towards Burner dance music. Get out those JNCO jeans and your old 90’s clothes with this one.

“The 1991 Filthy Lucre remix of ‘Treaty’ peaked at #6 on the U.S. Billboard dance chart in April of 1992 and we are proud to be still working with Yothu Yindi in 2019. For our 25th anniversary remix of Treaty, we’ve been careful to produce a mix that embodies the funk and the ancient tribal of our original, whilst updating the song for today’s massive festival dance floors.”
