Dean Miroshnikov will be better known to some as an actor rather than an Electronic music producer, having performed numerous leading roles on popular Israeli television programmes. Over the last couple of years, however, he has begun to make his mark on the music industry in a similar way, something that will no doubt continue with the release of his new single, Dean Miroshnikov – P.U.L.P. Combining the artist’s love for film and music, the track is essentially an Indie Dance remix of the track Misirlou, which features heavily in the opening scene of Quentin Tarantino‘s cult crime drama Pulp Fiction, and which was originally brought to the attention of the wider public by guitarist Dick Dale in 1962.

Dean Miroshnikov – P.U.L.P isn’t just any old remix either – it’s actually incredibly clever, blending Misirlou‘s memorable surf rock riffs with a fresh, danceable beat and edgy, pulsing synthesizers, breathing new life into the track in the process. As further homage to Pulp Fiction, meanwhile (which Miroshnikov is obviously a huge fan of), he includes vocal samples of dialogue from the film in the song too, inserting these into the track at appropriate moments in order to add additional color and interest to certain sections. At around the three-minute mark, for instance, we can hear a clip of one of the film’s lead actors Samuel L. Jackson, which is cleverly used to build tension before the track gives way to a frenetic and stylish drop.

Creating an Indie Dance remix of Pulp Fiction’s Misirlou in the first place is an ingenious idea, and one which the artist deserves much credit for. And yet with P.U.L.P, Dean Miroshnikov has taken the idea much further than a simple remix. What he has in fact created with this track is a heartfelt homage to both Pulp Fiction and Dick Dale’s 1960’s version of Misirlou, combining the edgy, tense feel of the original and the instantly recognizable riffs of the latter to build a track that represents a genuinely original idea.
