Robert Delong performs at the 2013 Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans, LA. 

On Saturday (Mar. 21), Sean Glass -- son of Glassnote Records' Daniel Glass, founder of his own label Win Music, and self-proclaimed "avid wearer of scrunchies" -- made his debut as a producer on legendary KCRW DJ Jason Bentley's Metropolis show. The track, a remix of Glassnote electro-polymath artist Robert Delong's "Long Way Down," sees its premiere online.

Glass gives the original a disco ball spin, kicking up the tempo and adding a harder backbeat and distorting vocal samples into building percussion -- he even brings out the James Bond-esque vocal chordal progressions.

"It's an honor to kick off my production career by remixing Robert," he tells Billboard. "I've loved working with him over the last few years. Playing with him has always been fun, and he's probably the artist I've seen the most times live over the last three years. It's also an honor having Jason Bentley premiere this with his co-sign. He's a good friend, and I think the most important radio DJ in the US. Shout out to U-Tern, the Juan MacLean, and the whole DFA family. They are the artists I was thinking about most while making this."

Adds Delong, "It's an honor to have Sean Glass bring his disco house vibes to 'Long Way Down' for his first remix."
