Let loose on Swedish peer Adrian Lux’s return to the forefront of his craft with ‘Fire’, Jeremy Olander’s immediate charm and studio diligence do not fall short for his latest remix endeavour. Taking a spirited approach to the original’s firm Progressive backbone, a waterfall of colourful synth play and hauntingly vivid elements of Lune’s divine vocal accolades make for this distinct yet desirable revisit to the more commercial side of the pond to that where we would usually find Olander. But ripe with those Pryda-esque moments and boasting an air of breathtaking atmospherics somewhat lost within the modern crowd of Europe’s elite, the young Swede repays his dues to the support of Eric Prydz with an affirmative nod of no-nonsense club fuel that teases more melodic lusts of Electronic Dance Music.
Fresh off the mark from his ’15 Minutes Of Fame’ slot on the distinguished airwaves of Pete Tong, the once infamous chainsaw master turned unremitting remixer Fadil El Ghoul has truly taken his R3hab moniker to unsuspecting levels. Transitioning from promising Dutch contender to universal Electronic entity has seen him bring the noise for daring remodels for Lady Gaga and David Guetta alike in a bid to give the industry’s more commercial entities a much needed kick in the ass. Let loose on Swedish peer Adrian Lux’s enigmatically popular anthem ‘Fire’, R3hab steps away from his usual onslaught of fine-tuned chainsaw madness for his most ‘grown up’ offering to date. While the energy and ferocious lead work of his usual output remain intact through out, the developing melodic weavings of his own sharp synths and Lune’s own distinct vocal stylings make for a fresh and invigorating outing for the supreme remixer.
