Leisure Centre in collaboration with Amin Payne release a brand new remix of “Something Better”, from their 2018 debut album Mind Full. Multi-instrumentalist, producer and remix artist Amin Payne has flipped the slow jam tempo of the original into a bouncing piece of hip-hop inspired future R&B at 100bpm. All the elements of the original track are still there – flipped, clipped and reconstituted into an entirely new piece of music. This comes as Leisure Centre enters the studio to work on their follow up album.
Amin Payne is a producer/DJ/Performer from Auckland based in Melbourne. Co-Founder and member of the bands ‘Due Dillagence’ & ‘OJ KUSH’. A vital member of the Operatives, Amin is also the co-founder of Condensed Milk, a collective & label that is renown for drawing a crowd for it’s parties, talent showcases and DJ sets across Melbourne and releasing several acclaimed compilations of local and International artists.
Amin has shared stages with Aloe Blacc, Flying Lotus, Talib Kweli, Peanut Butter Wolf, Eric Lau, Hudson Mohawke, Kev Brown, Oddisee, Suff Daddy, Black Milk, Tall Black Guy, Julien Dyne & Hiatus Kaiyote.
Melbourne R&B slow jammers Leisure Centre released their debut album Mind Full in 2018 and the record sits on a darker and more electronic plane to their previous offerings, taking their staple diet of 808 kick drums and tight vocal harmonies into uncharted territory. The record is a tour of extremes which sees the band experiment with frenetic drum programming, cascading synthesizers, jilted backbeats and bouncy new jack era R&B.
