Last summer Belgian producer Compuphonic released the Marques Toliver featuring Sunset. It’s a solid Deep House tune, but feels a little uninspired, a bit by-the-numbers if you will. Have no fear though, out this weeks is a pretty classy reMix collection that more than makes up for things Aeroplane, Waze & Odyssey, Aashton & Swift, David Keno, Fabio Giannelli & LPXZ all take their turn to deliver their version of the tune, sweeping up those smooth R&B vocals and making them something new. here’s out picks of the EP.
Aeroplane’s mix is probably the EP’s highlight, whipping up the track into a huge DiscoPop monster. With keys from a 70s cop show and plucked strings straight out of an 80s music video, Aeroplane makes everything bright and shiny. There’s hints of mid-80s Jean-Michelle Jarre in there, set to a stomping beat, and a big retro Pop sheen as Vito serves up one of the best Pop tracks of the year so far. Aashton & Swift take the track in the opposite direction, showing how deep Piano House should be done. Moody and exotic, with just the right amount of 90s House groove. The duo mange to combine a deep, deep, vibe with a light breezy track to create something that is both compellingly danceable, but fun too. Waze & Odyssey, on the other hand, turn in an undulating warehouse sound, loaded with bleeps and bass that makes us all nostalgic. The introduction of a slick organ riff compounds the track, bringing everything together for an intoxicating dancefloor experience. all-in-all it’s a sweet reMix collection that let’s the song shine the way it should have been allowed to all along.
