Having been inaugurated in the good books with his seminal remix for Adrian Lux’s ‘Teenage Crime’ for Axtone, the return of dignified Swedish House tune smith Henrik B alongside Rudy, the voice behind ‘In The Air’ was always going to touch upon positive anticipation amid his canvas of unpretentious Progressive House. But calling upon Dutch daredevils NO_ID to take on remix duties, ‘Leave A Light On’ is given an essential injection of the Axtone duos hard-hitting musical stamina from the outset. Drawing on the originals anthemic vocal line and building a canvas of solid synth work around its emotive tones, their remix transitions from piercing keys to aggressive chords with impressive technical substance.
Rife with the effervescent energy of their latest single for Diffused, ‘How R U Feeling Right Now’, their remodel is enough to place them at the heart of their genre while establishing a firm ground for the Dutch duo not only to claim their diversity amid their hometown peers, but to soar to unprecedented levels. Already boasting spots at Axwell’s Cosmic Opera alongside Deniz Koyu and further outings with the illustrious Swede set for Miami Music Week, their general sense momentum is perfectly encapsulated in this standout remix of a truly sound calibre.
