Premiere – Ron Trent remixes Ash Walker’s Amp Fiddler collab ‘Afronaught’

Walker on the late Fiddler: a “huge inspiration of mine”

Ash Walker‘s collaboration with Amp Fiddler, ‘Afronaught’, was one of the highlights of Walker’s guest-filled Astronaught album, which surfaced last May.

Now label mate, not to mention legendary house DJ and producer Ron Trent has taken the track and given it his unique twist – and you can be the first to hear it.

The track has taken on a particular poignancy since Amp Fiddler passed away in December last year.

Ash Walker had this to say on his influence and Trent’s rework: “Having recently very sadly lost a dear friend, mentor, collaborator and huge inspiration of mine – Amp Fiddler, it was very touching to hear how Ron Trent reinterpreted Amp and I’s track together ‘Afronaught’. Label buddy Ron was able to steer Afronaught in a Chicago style, Acid House inspired direction which compliments Amp’s vocal perfectly, giving the track a new lease of life. Amp was such a pioneer and embodiment of Afrofuturism who never ceased to push boundaries, proving that us as black musicians have the power to defy genre and surpass societal expectations. Amp’s spirit will live on eternally, not only through the music he created in his lifetime but also through all the artists he nurtured and influenced worldwide.” 

Ron Trent’s remix marks just the beginning of this journey, a sonic flare if you will lighting up the way for the projects to come. Walker further contextualises the release; Following on from the release of my fourth album Astronaut in Summer 2023, I’m very proud to announce a selection of remixes from some of my favourite artists including K15, Kennebec, Ron Trent and Tiger Smith. It’s been beautiful to hear how these producers have breathed new life into Astronaut; from K15’s broken beat flip of ‘Time Gets Wasted’ featuring Sly5thAve and Denitia to Tiger Smith’s two-step version of ‘Only Love’ featuring Lou Rhodes.’ “
