Helsinki-based Otto Yliperttula, better known to the world as Yotto or one half of Something Good, comes out with his take on M83’s ‘Intro’, taken from the French band’s acclaimed ”Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming” album. Eerily similar to the version used in Luciano’s sets of late, Yliperttula’s latest work leads with simplicity over complexity while firmly echoing the renowned signature statement of Alesso: ‘Less is more’. Replacing the symphonic instrumental work of the original with a bouncy tech beat, Yotto’s rework of ‘Intro’ successfully maintains the soothing vibe of the track while remodelling it into something of a post-summer gem released just in time for the last leg of the Ibiza season.

Once France’s best kept secret, the impact of M83’s globally acclaimed sixth studio album, released last year, suggests that going with the more incognito approach is no longer an option for this French electronic music band. On the other side, Scottish producer Myles MacInnes, professionally known as Mylo, is on hand to give ‘Reunion’, one of the more potent singles off of ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’, a high-end remix. As officially premiered by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 on Friday, Mylo’s take on the rather intricate original gives the track more of an easy on the ear appeal. Featuring a set of sweepy synths along with some crisp percussions and solid kicks, it’s safe to say that the Scotsman’s version perfectly complements the already stunning top line for a concoction that is certain see itself become a classic in due time.
The Mylo remix of ‘Reunion’ will be released on May 8th via Mute Records.
Taken from M83’s highly-acclaimed sixth studio album, the unremitting sounds of ‘Midnight City’ have been far more than just an average track out from the phenomenal French band that are proving as popular as they are innovative. Where the original has been an essential soundtrack for radio and big screen alike, Eric Prydz’s recently surfaced take gives it that well-needed dose of big room, taking the unique and chart-worthy sound of M83 to the global dancefloor. First intended to be an unofficial version for his own live sets, the on-going acclaim and recognition for the Eric Prydz rendition lately has caused Naive Music to lap it up for an official release. Boosting the original by 20 bpm, the club-suitable Eric Prydz remix preserves ‘Midnight City’s unforgettable appeal and vocal screams while adding a sizeable proportion of the Swede’s inimitable knack for unforgettable productions.
