With global club land relishing in his relinquished studio output, TV Rock’s Grant Smillie has looked set on excelling the Australian scene of late. Joined by Sydney’s Walden and one of the country’s most promising vocal assets to date, the Aussie heavyweight returns to his own Neon Records for the release of ‘A Million Lights’.

Armed with the formidable topline talents of Aussie pop songstress Zoë Badwi, the track’s somewhat cheesy undertone is not enough to draw the light away from the strong melodic properties that pervade ‘A Million Lights’. While fellow Aussie duo Feenixpawl extend their melodic charm with a key-driven take on the original that ascends into their notably uplifting play book, DCUP makes for the most distinct remix with a lick of vintage flare for his own funky remodel from outside of the Electronic Dance comfort zone. With the addition of Alex van Alff’s rhythmically refined Tech House stylings for the finale of this remix package, Smillie and Walden appear to have established another firm indicator that the universal club bug has not been wasted on our peers Down Under.

  • DCUP remix is awesome.

  • Great remix, but the original just has way to high white noise in the drop, or hi-freq in general. God my ears bleed.
