Coldplay have had something of a speedy inauguration into the realms of Electronic Dance Music. Following on from Fedde Le Grand’s well-received remodel of the band’s global hit ‘Paradise’, esteemed American peer Dave Aude is on hand to work some of the studio magic that has illuminated his career over the past decade. Matching the familiar melodics of Chris Martin with an equally emotive soundscope of racing synths, Aude treads respectfully on the turf of Coldplay’s universal Pop stylings while injecting ‘Charlie Brown’ with an exciting backbone of eclectic club fuel. Where its seamless transitions outline Aude’s undeniable talents, the tracks unpretentious energy is enough to solidify the concept that somewhere along the line these two genres have become rather apt bedfellows.
