With so many reMixes of Goldroom’s excellent Embrace knocking about these days it’s pretty hard to make your stand out from the crowd. The best way to do this, we have realised from listening to dozens, it to truly make the song your own, you’re not going to out-chilled-Disco Goldroom so don’t bother, to make it different and unique. And that’s exactly what French SynthWaver Awkoder has done.
I’m not sure we can even call Awkoder a SynthWaver anymore, especially after this proto-Rave, slightly Deep House track. You can tell Awkoder comes from a retro background, there’s a whole heap of late 80s dance tropes going on, the melodic synth stabs really make the track, Pair them up with a deep digital bassline and a warehouse beat and you’ve got a new direction for Embrace. The reMix is loaded with vocal modulation too, making the original unrecognisable at times, how’s that for making it your own?
Goldroom’s Embrace EP is out now.
