In an age where the pop/club crossover sparks more rigorous online debate than record sales, the chart topping Dutchman best known as Afrojack returns to high-end remix duties for an official take of Keane.

Turning his head for the synth-laden terrains of Dance music, Nick van de Wall’s re-interpretation of ‘Sovereign Light Café’ sees him go in a similar vein as Alesso’s remix of ‘Silenced By The Night.’ Pitting Keane’s angelic top line against blissful leads and the high-octane Afrojack drops, the Wall label head avoids offence as much as one could’ve hoped for with this euphoric pop-to-club crossover.

In an age where the pop/club crossover sparks more rigorous online debate than record sales, the chart topping Dutchman best known as Afrojack returns to high-end remix duties for an official take of Keane.

Turning his head for the synth-laden terrains of Dance music, Nick van de Wall’s re-interpretation of ‘Sovereign Light Cafe’ sees him go in a similar vein as Alesso’s ‘Silenced By The Night‘. Pitting Keane’s angelic top line against blissful leads and the high-octane Afrojack drops, the Wall label head avoids offence as much as one could’ve hoped for with this euphoric pop-to-club crossover.

Globetrotting Swede and inherent young blood to the EDM throne Alesso has failed to simmer his widespread adoration for 2012. But where his cut of David Guetta’s ‘Titanium’ proved an essential Dance floor asset last year, British soft-rock outfit and personal favourites Keane are next on the agenda to be given remodel by Europe’s latest proud Progressive export.

Playing off the originals staggered piano progressions and divergent top line, his remix duties for ‘Silenced by the Night’ stray from the tougher energy he is more commonly associated with. Adapting to a clean-cut melodic sweep of Keane’s more down-tempo stylings, there is still an impressive pulse to the young Swede’s second mark in 2012. Ahead of his forthcoming solo endeavors ‘Years’ and ‘Clash‘, Alesso produces a divine canvas of emotively tuned floor fuel that remains a testament to the young producer and his rapidly expanding global following.

Now supported by every major artist imaginable and boasting a sublime discography of original studio endeavours and remixes, Pete Tong was the first to get his hands on the studio quality cut of his inaugural remix of 2012. Where his remix of ‘Titanium’ proved an essential Dance floor asset last year, British soft-rock outfit and personal favourites Keane are next on the agenda to be given the Swedish House treatment.

Playing off the originals staggered piano progressions and divergent top line, his remix duties for ‘Silence by the Night’ do not quite encompass the same energy as the likes of his celebrated remix of ‘Pressure’. However, with a clear melodic sweep of the originals more down-tempo approach, Alesso produces a divine canvas of emotively tuned music that remains a testament to the diversity to which his legacy has been attributed to.
