After the successful launch of the original and whilst Kaskade’s newly released ”Fire & Ice” album is strongly climbing the charts, tastes of two sturdy remixes of the American’s 2011 trademark single Eyes have emerged.
Following numerous well-turned-out collaborations in Sending My Love and remixes to Maximal Crazy and Calling, R3hab and Swanky Tunes are now tramping their seperate ways to independantly remix Kaskade’s surpassing Eyes with an absolute stunning vocal from Mindy Gledhill. Whilst the original represents what we deem one of his best tracks to date with an unattainable emotionality and his heartfelt signature sound, Ultra Records seem to have been in the look-out for a remix package with significantly rawer sounds as Wall Recordings’ essential protégé, R3hab, and the Russians of Swanky Tunes were brought in to give their club suitable takes on Eyes.
What at first appears to be another throbbing example of R3hab’s chainsaw-sounding signature drop later breaks down to thoroughly create a widely spread contrast of sounds. Boasting a melodic and utterly beautiful piano lead that hovers softly atop the vocals from Ms. Gledhill and meaty kicks, the man behind Prutataaa, with Afrojack, and an armada of remixes on Without You, Koko and others is out with a teaser of his newest, dynamic remix.
Aside from the flexibility in the aforementioned remix, Swanky Tunes showcase nothing but their crisp chords, consistent drums and mincing baselines to round this package of alternate, harder versions of the silky original off as their The Legend making with Matisse & Sadko is becoming more eagerly awaited amongst house music heads by the day.
