In the aftermath of releasing ‘Symphonica’ through his own Protocol Recordings, high-flying Dutchman Nicky Romero releases his much-anticipated remix of ‘I Need Your Love’ by Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding.
Tackling Goulding’s inimitable quavery vocal stylings with ease, Romero’s remix flows seamlessly between lengthy piano chords and swift, high-pitched synths, swapping the radio-friendly instrumental of ‘I Need Your Love’ for that of a club-friendlier one.
As the momentum continues to build around Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding’s ‘I Need Your Love’, British nu-disco extraordinaire Brett Ewels, better known as Louis La Roche, is the latest producer to offer up his rendition of the hit record. Switching Harris’ instrumental work for the lazy disco stylings of Ewels, Louis La Roche treats the original and Goulding’s distinct vocals with respect with a remodel that ticks the boxes of a truly sophisticated feel-good track.
When France’s most hotly tipped 18-year-old joined one of the finest English singers on offer, the outcome was never going to be mediocre. That is very much the theme for the resulting track from Madeon’s production prowess and Ellie Goulding’s unmistakably sweet voice. In a flutter of whirling sounds, ‘Stay Awake’ sees Madeon match Goulding’s vocals with a happy drum and bass formula to create something of an unexpected digression from their individual signature sounds.
Following it’s limited release on the Tesco edition of Goulding’s ‘Halcyon’ album’, ‘Stay Awake’ is out today on Beatport.
In anticipation for the release of ‘Symphonica’ on March 25th, high-flying Dutchman Nicky Romero unveils the final version of his much-anticipated remix of ‘Need Your Love’ by Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding.
Tackling Goulding’s inimitable quavery vocal stylings with ease, Romero’s remix flows seamlessly between lengthy piano chords and swift, high-pitched synths, swapping the radio-friendly instrumental of ‘Need Your Love’ for that of a club-friendlier one.
A release date is yet to be announced.
As far as Dance breakthroughs are concerned, few have come in the same demand as Germany’s Anton Zaslavski. But under the guise of his renowned studio alias Zedd, the aftermath of his debut full-length, ‘Clarity‘, sees him joined by Lucky Date and Ellie Goulding to treat us with the full version of one of his album’s heavier-set tracks, ‘Fall Into The Sky’. Mixing slow synths, angelic vocals à la Ellie Goulding and hard-hitting drops, the unique contrast sets ‘Fall Into The Sky’ apart from the hordes of Electro-savvy post-summer contenders with consistent stamina.
Chart-hopping Scot Calvin Harris is back to set the tone ahead of his upcoming single ‘Sweet Nothing’ with Florence Welch, teaming up alongside Ellie Goulding for ‘I Need Your Love’. While set to appear on both of their soon-to-be-released albums, October 9th will see the release of this much talked about collaborative effort as part of Goulding’s ‘Halcyon’ album.
In an overlap of vintage electro and modern pop music, Harris combines his uplifting club floor charm with the angelic voice of Goulding to make up a track that balances the relationship between pop music and the dance floor with stimulating consistency.
Out October 9th.
Beatport chart toppers and unfathomable musical moments aside, young Aussie House outfit Feenixpawl have received something of an industrious epiphany since the eruption of their breakthrough Axtone release ‘In My Mind’. To celebrate hitting the 25,000 fan mark on Facebook, the duo dish out another supreme vocal club moment in the form of a free download of their remix duties for Ellie Goulding’s ‘Lights’.
Extending the same magic that saw Max Vangeli and AN21 champion her divine topline for their take on ‘Starry Eyed’, Feenixpawl drive a firm Progressive backbone of clean melodic leads to bring the British pop sensation’s beautiful voice back to club land once again. As a comprehensive indicator of the purer energy that the controversial club/pop crossover can conjure, those in fear of the Aussie duo becoming yet another one hit wonder of modern Dance music need look no further for proof of their promising studio stamina.
