Album-mode had left releases from Madeon few and far between in 2014, but with the eargerly awaited Adventure now officially dated for the end of March, we’re sure to have plenty of material in store from the prodigious youngster. This week already saw some jaw-dropping remixes surface in the blogosphere, and boy were we stoked when we saw Gramatik’s name etched across one of them. The legendary beatmaker has pulled out all the stops in bringing the funk to ‘You’re On’, bolstered by jazzy riffs and breathtaking drum breakdowns which amplify the power of the anthemic vocals. It’s the perfect mix of 70′s dancefloor groove with the ability to set festival crowds alight, all while maintaining a steady chill vibe throughout. It wasn’t the end to the star-studded remix lineup though, with Oliver also throwing their funky influence behind this same song. In effortless fashion, they hold complete control over the progression of this song and movements of the listener alike, leaving it completely impossible to deny the unrestrained dancing your body will crave with this in your ears. And when you thought things couldn’t get any more mesmerizing, the saxophone solo comes in just to leave this remix mastery complete.
Hot on the heels of the unveiling of ‘Four Five Seconds’, Lido has further proven his musical dominance with a mind-blowing version that leaves the original irrelevant in comparison. If the sheer agility of this release wasn’t enough, the use of live brass and guitar is just insanely good, combining for a flawless interpretation that wouldn’t be out of place at any uplifting Sunday Service. Something this addictive has to be a sin right? Capitalizing on this state of euphoria, this next tune from Denver-based Said The Sky will keep things elevated and the feelings right. Channeling some serious Porter vibes, ‘Run Away’ is wrapped in floating melodies that burst into colorful moments of bass-filled happiness. It’s ecstasy from start to finish, steeped in emotional vocals that reflect a palpable dream-like state. While we’re talking all things heavenly, Australia’s Omniment has kicked off his 2015 with another magical addition to his growing repertoire. Where stwo’s original allows plenty of time to build, this blissful take on ‘Eden’ enjoys exploration through serene melodies and gorgeous chords that do well to represent the paradise the title embodies.
Despite the words written above, you’ll find that this week’s playlist has all intentions of leaving you speechless. We much prefer to let the music do the talking anyway. Peace out.
