Talk about a massive collaboration. Alex Metric and Jacques Lu Cont have joined forces with Malin from Niki & The Dove for a nothing-short-of-special new tune, “Safe With You.” The dub mix was premiered last night on BBC Radio 1 by Annie Mac, who also got a quick word from Lu Cont about the creation of the song as well as this inspiring quote about club music in general:
Denmark native Faustix and his partner in crime, Canadian DJ/Producer Imanos, just put out this incredible remix of Niki & The Dove’s “DJ, Ease My Mind.” The track has just the right blend of uplifting progressive builds and vocals to match the absolutely face melting drops that are made for that hands up festival mayhem. The remix is offered as a free download from the ImanosFacebook page or from the link below if that ever expires, but be sure to support these guys from the social links at the bottom.
Following their collaborative success with ‘I’ll Wait For You’ on John Dahlbäck’s Mutants Records, Faustix and Imanos return from the studio with a sensational new remix for Swedish pop act Niki & The Dove. Featuring powerful, uplifting synths combined with heavy drops, the track is another belter from the duo that highlights their impressive production ability. Bringing together the raw energy of a dance floor with the soaring vocals of singer Malin Dahlstrom, the pair delivers a surefire hit that will blow you away.
I’m a couple of weeks late on this track, but as they say, “better late than never”, plus for some of you who aren’t like me and posting music at 9am on New Year’s Day, you might not have heard it yet. I decided to go off on an Alex Metric tangent after I mentioned the Tim Mason remix to his “Open Your Eyes” track with Steve Angello in the previous post, and it has resulted in a couple of mint remixes. The first is the newest, a Jason Bourne car chase like remix to Miike Snow’s “Devil’s Work” that makes the original sound really pop with the addition of some piano house elements. The second is a remix to the indie record “Mother Protect” from Niki & The Dove, and adds in some uplifting progressive synths and claps to give it a big room feeling. Both of these should rack up plenty of plays in your iTunes in the coming year.
