While the Axwell mix has by fans and DJs alike been rated one of the hottest progressive anthem of the year thus far, there has been something of a mysterious buzz surrounding whenever the original of Ivan Gough and Feenixpawl’s ‘In My Mind’ was to enter the limelight. Returning for round two, the original mix of ‘In My Mind’ is out and it’s sounding, well, a bit different yet very similar to Axwell’s previously released version.
While it may upon first listen be hard to truly comprehend the actual differences between the original and Axwell’s acclaimed take, there are indeed a few. The most notable differences are probably the arrangement of Georgi Kay’s divine top line in the second interlude, the length of the second drop and the outro, but despite the original actually holding the cooler arrangement of the two, what makes Axwell’s version stand out more is not the reduced length or the simpler arrangement but its increased quality in sound and production.
The Australian foursome should be given eulogy for bringing one of the most infectious tracks of the year thus far to the table and despite the fact that Axwell’s edit will most likely still be the more acknowledged version by the end of the year, the original’s more unique approach makes it worth a listen and purchase.
